ESPN Classic has announced an agreement to provide content for Go!View, the official PlayStation Portable VOD service in the UK and Republic of Ireland. As part of the deal, ESPN Classic will give PSP users the opportunity to see some of the greatest moments in sporting history. In collaboration with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe and Sky, up to 20 hours of ESPN Classic’s legendary sports content will be regularly added every month to this new service for PSP users to enjoy in addition to their usual gaming experience.

This month, Go!View users will see some of the best boxing from the 20th Century featuring the likes of Ali, Frazier, Foreman and Tyson. Other programming provided by ESPN Classic includes the Tony Hawk’s Gigantic Statepark Tour series and a biography of cyclist Lance Armstrong.
Go!View makes portable VOD a reality, and now PSP users are able to easily transfer content to their PSP via a PC. Through agreements with distributors and broadcasters including Disney-ABC-ESPN Television, BBC Worldwide, Sony Pictures Television International, NBC Universal International Television Distribution, National Geographic and Sky Sports, Go!View can offer PSP users a range of content.
