WatchESPN is ready to scratch your college basketball itch. Whether you're looking for men's or women's basketball, WatchESPN is now the home to 15 brand new destinations representing many conferences in the sport. Most of them are mid-major conferences but the ACC (one major conference without a major network) is also present.
Here's the list of conferences which you'll be able to find on WatchESPN at launch: ACC, America East, Atlantic Sun, Big South, Big West, HBCUs (Mid-Eastern Athletic, Southwestern Athletic and Central Intercollegiate Athletic) Horizon, Mid-American, Metro Atlantic Athletic, Missouri Valley, Northeast, Ohio Valley, Southern, Sun Belt and Southland.
Rosalyn Durant, Vice President of College Sports Programming at ESPN, commented:
"These new conference channels on WatchESPN will showcase the breadth and depth of our college sports coverage. But most importantly, they will allow us to better serve the fans. In other words, ESPN is striving to be your online streaming destination for all of your college basketball needs. "
By the time Championship Week rolls around, ESPN will have streamed more than 2,000 live men's and women's college basketball games. With the additions of these new branded destinations, that number should only grow in the future.
In other words, if you're a fan of college basketball there's probably a new destination on WatchESPN for you. Even if you're not a fan of basketball, ESPN's new additions may appeal to you later in the year when they start streaming college football games.
