Verizon FiOS loves sports!
This is a great time of year to be a sports fan. College and pro football is underway, the baseball playoff races are in full swing and NBA training camps open in less than 3 weeks. Even golf fans are working overtime, with the current FedEx Cup playoffs to be closely followed by the biennial Ryder Cup between the USA and Europe.
And if you are a sports fan who likes a full range of live programming plus all the highlights, then chances are you’re an ESPN subscriber. While all the major TV networks and more than a few cable channels have some kind of sports programming, nobody does sports quite like ESPN. Correctly labeling itself “The Worldwide Leader in Sports,” ESPN provides 24/7 coverage across six TV channels, a host of local radio stations, print media and more.
But with the explosion of mobile devices and high-speed wireless networks, we need more options than just watching sports from our living rooms. We want to watch on-demand programming and live events on our smartphones and tablets, making sure that we catch all the news and miss none of the action.
That’s just another reason why sports fans should switch to Verizon FiOS. As well as getting the top-rated broadband service in America and your own personal Wi-Fi network, FiOS Internet subscribers get access to live sports events on ESPN3, ESPN’s online streaming service. Coverage includes college football and basketball, NCAA Championships, tennis, golf, soccer, cricket and more.
Verizon FiOS TV subscribers are even better off. They get access to WatchESPN, ESPN’s full online sports site that simulcasts ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, ESPNU, ESPN Goal Line and ESPN Buzzer Beater. WatchESPN is available on your computer, your smartphone and your tablet. It’s compatible with both Apple mobile devices (iOS 4.0 or later) and Android devices (2.3.3 and above). All you need to do is download the free app from the App Store or Google Play and register using your Verizon FiOS TV subscription.
We have long been able to enjoy on-the-go movies and TV series through apps such as Netflix, Hulu Plus and HBO Go. Now it’s time for sports fans to catch up, and Verizon FiOS Internet and Verizon FiOS TV make it possible.
