ESPN relaunches ESPN Goals service

ESPN has today launched its Premier League goals mobile app on Nokia smartphones, as well as revamping the service on iPhone and Android platforms.

The ESPN Goals service, which uses the US broadcaster's three-year deal for mobile highlights of all 380 Premier League games, is now available from Nokia's Ovi store, delivering video clips of all goals from the league.

Users can download the app for free to access live scores and news, but they will have to pay £1.50 per month to receive the complete video service, including in-match, post-match and customised video clips.

"Mobile media is an important way fans stay connected to the sport they love," said Tom Gleeson, vice president of digital media at ESPN International.

"ESPN Goals is another step in ESPN's bid to serve sports fans on multiple devices with the very best sporting content."

Rupert Englander, head of services marketing at Nokia, added: "This is a superb addition to the content available on the Nokia N8 at launch. Now every football fan can watch, share, cheer and keep up to date wherever they are with this great app."

In addition to the Nokia launch, the Disney-owned broadcaster has also revamped the existing ESPN Goals apps on iPhone and Google Android, with a reduced price.

New features on both apps include free preview clips of goals for non-subscribers and a fixtures and results section featuring more detailed content. The revamped apps are on sale now for £1.50 per month on Android and £1.79 on Apple, down from the previous price of £3.99.

Last week, ESPN launched its popular ESPNcricinfo service as a mobile app on iPhone and Android in time for the ICC Cricket World Cup.
