ESPN Player mobile apps on iOS & Android, and on iPads, will provide fans with viewing on the go.

The live and on-demand sports streaming service will give subscribers the opportunity to watch more than 2,000 top college basketball games on computers, tablets and mobile devices.
The College Basketball season tips off on Tuesday 6th November 2018 with notable matchups including many of the top 25 teams facing off. Reigning NCAA National Champions Villanova start their campaign at home to Morgan St Bears, while there are several “sonic blockbuster” match-ups, featuring the biggest teams in the NCAA, as Kansas welcome Michigan State, and Duke travel to Indianapolis to face the Kentucky Wildcats.
The NCAA’s elite players will be pursuing individual dreams alongside team glory as they hope to prove themselves worthy of being drafted by an NBA team. The likes of Duke’s RJ Barrett and Zion Williamson, Indiana’s Romeo Langford, and Nassir Little at North Carolina are hotly tipped to follow in the footsteps of current NBA rookies such as Phoenix Suns Deandre Ayton and the Sacramento Kings’ Marvin Bagley III.
ESPN Player is also the home of March Madness in EMEA, including the Final Four and the National Championship game. The journey from Selection Sunday, when the competing teams are revealed, to the final, includes 67 games, which will all be available to view live and on-demand with ESPN Player.
“Subscribers also have access to three 24/7 ESPN channels – ESPNU, The SEC Network and The Longhorn Network – direct from the US. Game previews, original programmes, analysis and predictions will all be available to fans around the clock.” – ESPN
