One of the streaming services not as many people talk about is ESPN+, but as of today, there’s been a major update to it.
ESPN released an update to its app this morning that added the ability for SharePlay functionality. This means live and on-demand video content in the app such as its ESPN+ content, as well as videos from the ESPN app related to programs like “SportsCenter,” “NFL Live” and “Pardon the Interruption” can have the ability to be seen with friends with SharePlay.
SharePlay is a feature in iOS 15.1 and higher where users can have a FaceTime call going and watch on-demand and live content from a plethora of services like Apple Music, Apple TV+, Disney+, Pluto TV and others.
This update to its app came in Version 6.64:
“Stream together with SharePlay – With SharePlay, you can stream select live sports, ESPN+ Originals, and more with friends and family on FaceTime. Try it out on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV (accessible on latest iOS, iPadOS, or tvOS 15.1 update).”
ESPN+ currently costs $6.99 a month and is available to stream on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV and Mac. It can be subscribed to through the App Store via in-app purchases too.
