Extends contract for 8 years, adds digital content

ESPN and the NFL have extended their agreement for coverage of Monday Night Football for an additional eight years. As part of the extension, ESPN will be augmenting its rights package to include distribution of 3D content, expanded highlight rights across ESPN's television and digital platforms, and simulcast network coverage of ESPN's MNF and NFL studio programs on tablet devices through ESPN's WatchESPN App.

WatchESPN is the sports network's app that streams sporting events live to smartphones and tablets. The simulcasts are available to viewers who subscribe to ESPN channels on local cable television. Depending on the service provider, these channels can include content from ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN Goal Line, ESPN Buzzer Beater, and ESPN3. The streamed content has included regular and playoff games from the NBA, the Masters and US Open golf tournaments, and all four tennis Grand Slam tournaments.

The app is currently available for use on iPhones, iPod Touches and iPads running iOS 4, as well as Android phones or tablets running version 2.2 and above.
