The Xbox 360 team has been busy working on updating the ESPN app on Xbox LIVE and it will be available in late August.
The new features in the update include:
- My Sports - ESPN on Xbox LIVE now allows you to choose your
favorite sports and teams and designate these channels as "My
Sports," so you can jump directly into the games and content you
care most about. ESPN on Xbox LIVE will automatically provide you
with a personalized daily feed of news and highlights based on "My
Sports," catching you up on only the teams and sports you care most
- Mini Guide - The Mini Guide gives you a preview and quick access
to all the sports content you care about right at the bottom of the
- Split Screen - Because true sports fans want to watch more than
one game at a time, ESPN on Xbox LIVE is adding Split Screen,
allowing you to watch two events at once. Watch live events on both
screens or a live event on one while you catch up on news and
highlights on the other. You can even control both screens
independently, pausing and rewinding each separately so you never
miss a second of the action.
- Voice Control with Kinect - Focus on your team instead of looking
for the remote. Navigate through the Content Guide, skip to the next
highlight, or play, pause, and rewind that big play - all with the
sound of your voice and the magic of Kinect.
- Scoreboard - ESPN on Xbox LIVE is also adding a live college
football scoreboard that you can jump to any time. You can even use
Split Screen to watch the big game on one side of your screen while
the live scoreboard occupies the other, keeping you up on all the
action from around college football.
- Reminders - Too many big games to keep track of in your head? Not
to worry - ESPN on Xbox LIVE now lets you tag games and set
reminders so you never miss a moment.
- Live Alerts - With new live
alerts, ESPN on Xbox LIVE will keep you posted on score changes from
around college football, even if you're not keeping a close eye on
- ESPN BottomLine - The addition of the ESPN BottomLine to ESPN on
Xbox LIVE keeps you in the know with breaking news and score updates
from around the world of sports.
