Disney's TV everywhere app for sports, WatchESPN, is now accessible on Roku TV.
Roku noted that the launch is the first of many with the House of Mouse. Soon, WATCH Disney Channel, WATCH Disney Junior and WATCH Disney XD will be added to Roku TV as well.
WatchESPN provides live access to ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN3, ESPNU, ESPNEWS, ESPN Deportes, Longhorn Network and SEC Network, and is available for customers who receive ESPN's networks as part of their subscription from an affiliated provider. Those without a cable subscription can still use the app to access the latest news clips.
"We're very excited to be recognised by Disney as a leading streaming platform and bring these premium channels to Roku TV customers," said Ed Lee, vice president of content acquisition, in a blog. "Stream on!"
