ESPN kicks off Premier League with enhanced Goals app

ESPN has launched its enhanced Goals app to coincide with the kick-off this weekend of the new Premier League season.

The ESPN Goals app allows users to watch every goal from all of the 380 games, view live stats and watch video highlights - free of charge.

New features include an in-app social media function, allowing fans to automatically notify other ESPN Goals users on Facebook and Twitter of the highlights that they have just watched. ESPN Goals has also improved video quality and design across all platforms.

Another enhancement includes the option to view studio-based programming, such as its pre- and post-match analysis around ESPN's live televised football footage. There are also video previews of upcoming matches.

A new fan personalisation feature allows users to receive instant news from particular clubs including top scorers and assists stats.

With the new Android version, users can place a Widget on their home screen displaying live information when games are on.

Unfortunately due to FA restrictions, the same minor issue of waiting until 5.30pm for the goals from the 3pm Saturday fixtures still arises.

The free ESPN Goals app is available on IOS, Windows Phone, Blackberry and Android Devices.
