The ESPN app for Xbox received a significant update today, opening up all of ESPN's live sports content to subscribers. Previously, users could only stream certain sporting events with no access to original programming, like SportsCenter and SportsNation. With the update, Xbox Live Gold subscribers that also have an eligible cable or broadband package can live stream any of ESPN's channels, such as ESPN, ESPN2, Buzzer Beater, and others, including feeds of games as they happen. While those without an existing cable or satellite subscription are still out of luck, ESPN's decision to expand its offerings to cable subscribers is a small step in the direction of universal availability.
