How to Watch ESPN on the Internet

By Leslie Howerton

Watch ESPN live on the Internet on ESPN3, the channel's Web site devoted to streaming live events. Catch games that might not be available anywhere in your area or while you're on the go. You can also watch ESPN on the Internet by selecting videos from the Web site or downloading their app to your mobile device. Choose from game highlights, Sports Center clips and the latest updates in sports news. Just because you can't be in front of the television doesn't mean you have to miss the sports you love.

Visit the ESPN Web site at and move your cursor over the "Watch" tab on the top right side of the page. A drop-down menu of current viewing options will open.

Click on ESPN3 to stream live video, then click on the link to the game you want to watch. Streaming live games is only available if you have broadband service from a participating Internet Service Provider (ISP). If you don't know whether ESPN3 is available from your ISP click on the "FAQS" tab at the top of the home page, and then click on the "How do I get access to ESPN3?" link. Click on the "Click here for a list of participating providers" and a pop-up list appears. Call your ISP if it isn't on the list to see how you can get ESPN3.

Click on one of the show titles on the left side of the "Watch" drop-down menu to watch the latest episode or video clips. Each link takes you to that show's Web page and a menu of the most recently added videos.

Visit the Web site of your cable or satellite provider. Some services allow you to stream channels directly on your computer. You may have to call them or consult your account to see if the service is included in your service plan.

Download the "Watch ESPN" app to your iPhone, Smartphone or mobile device. This allows you watch ESPN wherever you go.
