ESPN, fresh off a record radio streaming month in June, is out with an Android app, ESPN Radio.
“Similar to the iPhone app, it gives millions of ESPN Radio listeners access to live, crystal-clear audio streams, fan favorite shows, the latest ‘SportsCenter’ updates every 20 minutes, popular podcasts, play-by-play broadcasts, live scores, newsfeeds and text messaging and call-in capabilities directly to ESPN Radio and ESPN affiliate stations,” the company stated.
The app costs $4.99. Radio station streams include affiliates just added from Philly, Seattle and Atlantic City.
The app for Android “adds another mobile platform with access to audio from ESPNRadio.com, the world’s most listened-to online audience stream of any terrestrial broadcaster in the world,” the network continued. It cited Ando Media numbers saying the stream averages more than 793,000 unique listeners per month.
Coverage of the U.S. team in the World Cup last month helped ESPNRadio.com to its most listened-to month in 10 years of streaming, with about 12.2 million total sessions and 10.7 million total listening hours.
