You can’t always be sitting on your couch in front of a big screen TV when the big game is on. Sometimes you have to be out and about, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss the game. The great thing about smartphones is you always have a mini TV screen in your pocket. With these apps, you can always watch the big game no matter where you are.


The WatchESPN app lets you keep up with your sports anytime, anywhere on your Android phone and tablet. Watch live games and shows with access to ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, ESPNU, and other ESPN-owned channels. If you get ESPN with your TV provider you can access live streaming video in the WatchESPN app.
