Some European bloggers or sports fans have been complaining for years, that people in the US have one big advantage: They grow up with the NBA, NCAA, NFL, MLB and NHL 24/7 on their TV. They say that this gives them the heads up. Even if you do agree with that (I don’t) then ESPN has a solution for you now. As the German TV portal satundkabel.de reports today, ESPN will start ESPN360.com as a IPTV platform – LIVE but not for free. This mean you will be able to follow the NCAA and NBA, as well as some shows like PTI (Pardon The Interruption) and Around The Horn.
A 24-hour access will be three Euros but you will not be able to save it on your hard drive.
In case you still don’t want to stay up until 3AM because of the time difference, ESPN will store the games for 24 hours so you can access them the next day at a “normal” time.
What does this mean for Europe? Well, if you want to follow one of the 150 European basketball College players – here is your chance!
