WatchESPN is available as an app or a website and allows people with verified cable subscriptions to watch sports content, like the World Cup, on the TV screen. WatchESPN has set a viewership record with more people streaming World Cup matches at the same time than streamed the Super Bowl earlier this year.

 

WatchESPN racked up 1.7 million concurrent viewers during the World Cup US versus Germany match this week. In fact, the number of viewers was so high that many people had trouble logging on to view the game. Concurrent viewers using WatchESPN to watch the Super Bowl hit 1.1 million.
