I am subscribing to ESPN's new standalone digital network ESPN+ this morning. From what I know ESPN's respective apps are supposed to be updated today and the new digital network that is not a part of ESPN's authenticated service that allows access to the ESPN Networks from a participating TV provider subscription will be integrated into the new update. I was wondering since I didn't see Roku on the list of available devices, if anyone knew if the update will extend to Roku via Watch ESPN or if Roku is going to get the more recent ESPN app?
I was able to sign up this morning. It took me a few times to get my subscription processed, but I assume the system wasn't up when they first put the advertising up for subscriptions. I am a Boxing writer and this new network is going to feature cards on a consistent basis. This is what drew my interest for obvious reasons. I have noticed the ESPN apps have not updated yet so hopefully, it will be done over the weekend. I also got word yesterday that the UFC is about to announce a split rights agreement with both ESPN and NBC as they are likely to leave Fox in terms of their non PPV and non Fight Pass digital network content so I will give ESPN credit, their really jumping in with this network.

This is the more recent ESPN app. From what I understand, ESPN is gradually phasing out the WatchESPN branding and making their OTT streaming app a one-stop place for all things ESPN. I've been enjoying the content so far. Should make my job covering some of the Boxing cards that take place outside of the U.S. a little easier. Much easier to get things done when you know well in advance what is going on and what is being offered by a particular network and in the case of international events, who has U.S. TV/streaming rights.
