Watch sports on your phone with the Eurosport Player app

Published by at

The Eurosport Player app, which lets you stream the live broadcast of Eurosports channels, is now available for Windows Phone 8 (UK, DE, FR, FI). In addition to live streams of Eurosport 1 and 2 TV channels the app provides access to on demand content (highlight videos) and bonus channels that operate during certain events (e.g. multi-courts during tennis tournaments).

In order to watch the content in the app you will need a subscription to Eurosport Player, which costs from £3.99 per month. The subscription covers entitles you to watch on multiple devices, with apps available for the PC/Mac (web), iOS, Android, Xbox, and now Windows Phone.

Europsort covers a wide range of sports and international events, which make it attractive to the sports generalists. Some of the things covered include: UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League football, Paris Dakar Rally, Superbike World championship, British Superbike, FIA European Touring Car Cup, World Athletics Championships, Tour de France, French Open (Tennis), US Open (Tennis) and the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour, World Championship Snooker, ICC World Twenty20, ICC Cricket World Cup, ICC Champions Trophy, Australian Football League, and more


As with any video streaming service a WiFi connection will generally give the best performance, but it is possible to use a 3G connection. Streaming video does use a lot of data, so it's worth remembering that your operator may charge for excessive data usage.

Eurosport Player is a relatively niche video-on-demand service, but is exactly the type of app that Windows Phone will need to attract a second wave of users. For some, the ability to keep up with sports on the move will be a key smartphone experience, and Eurosport Player will be their must have app.
