ESPN+ gains personalization, offline viewing & new platforms
The $4.99-a-month streaming sports service ESPN+ is overhauling parts of its look-and-feel with customized features, the ability to view content offline, and support for more platforms.
With so much content, the service is adding recommended programming based on a users browsing and viewing habits. Recommendations are meant to drive interest in the on-demand library, showing live sports fans related to content they might enjoy.
The new offline viewing mode will also drive interest in the on-demand library. Many of the service’s original series, specials, and documentaries – including the popular 30 for 30 series – are available offline using the ESPN iOS and Android app.
ESPN has also announced it will be streaming all Canadian Football League (CFL) games to U.S. subscribers thanks to a multi-year deal. ESPN+ subscribers will get over 65 games per season, while at least 20 games will air live on ESPN networks.
