ESPN Chromecast Support Rolling Out In Time for World Cup Kick Off

Chromecast owners have yet more reasons to cheer with the news that the American sports service ESPN has added Chromecast support to its Android and iOS applications. 

For football — sorry, ‘soccer’ — fans with ESPN networks as part of their cable subscription the news means all 64 FIFA World Cup matches — including those all important Group G fixtures — can be beamed from a smartphone or tablet to a big screen.

Go grab the beers now! 

ESPN’s other sports content will also be available through the feature, so if soccer isn’t your thing you’ll also be able to kick back with big-screen NBA Finals, NASCAR races and the 20th Summer X Games , which kicks off in Austin, Texas on June 5.

WatchESPN is a free application available for Android and iOS. It requires an active cable subscription to ESPN Networks and is only available in the USA.

Other apps now rocking Chromecast support include MLS Matchday, the official app of Major League Soccer, anime video service Crunchyroll and, as we’ll cover in more depth shortly, Google+ Photos.

Watch ABC and Watch Disney are also said to be adding Chromecast support to their mobile apps in the coming weeks.

  • Seriously now?

    Sorry, Joey, but I really don’t like beer. Call me an odd nut, but I think it tastes awful, and you can’t change my opinion.

      To be frank, I loathe beer myself! Was trying to be all common denominator ;)

    Actually, WatchESPN does NOT require a subscription to the cable channel. Yes, there is more content if you do have the subs but ESPN3 content is available to everyone regardless. Just FYI.
