AppAdvice’s iPad App Of The Week – Atari’s Greatest Hits

WatchESPN allows Apple fans to enjoy live streaming feeds of ESPN, on their iDevice, on the go. Currently, the app is available to download for free – however, access to the application is determined by the users’ TV provider.

- Verizon High Speed Internet – If you do NOT receive TV service from an above provider, but receive high-speed internet from Verizon, you will have access to ESPN3
(Editor’s Note: Oops, this is an iPhone app. Sorry about that.)
