because it's not just watching ESPN on another device.
You get to select all your favorite teams across all the different sports. Then you get everything related to those teams organized for you automatically. For example, if you put the Green Bay Packers as a favorite, you'll see news and highlights for that team pulled from their talk shows, SportCenter, replay events, etc. So you don't have to watch 30 minutes of SportsCenter + 30 minutes of 1st and 10 + 30 minutes of NFL Live + 30 minutes of Behind the Horn to get a few minutes about the Packers.
For example, I have the UCLA Bruins as a favorite team so I was scrolling through what replays they had and they had some basketball tournament in Hawaii.
So you can be granular (choosing the Cowboys as your favorite team) or broad such as choosing NFL as your favorite team (if you choose NFL, it'll grab all NFL content).
But if you don't want to list by favorite teams, you can just scroll through the entire list of events, highlights, etc.
in terms of actual sporting events, you get ESPN3 in its entirety as well as some ESPN2 and ESPN content. I've been able to watch some Lakers games, some UCLA games, etc. both live and in replay. I grew up in Fresno and still have some friends there so since I listed the Fresno State Bulldogs as one of my teams, I can see volleyball, basketball, and football games from the WAC network.
and the interactivity is kinda neat. like when the bowl season rolls around, you can see how you're doing against your friends as they make it not only about wins/losses but by having a point system that rewards upsets, it's like a game.
Same thing applies for other apps that you know like the MLB app. It's not about just dumping content from the TV channel. It's about tailoring it to suit your needs.
