Match of the Day needs to Watch its Back
ESPN Goals Review
by on August 28, 2011
We all like things we used to have to pay to receive for free, and that’s what ESPN goals does. Where in the olden times of 2009 we had to pay many pounds to watch men kick balls in nets, we can now get the experience for free.
And that’s the strength of the application, and boy, is it good when it works. Mere minutes from the end of the game, you’re treated to highlights from the match, with (admittedly slightly erratic) commentary thrown in.
If there’s a game going on, you can also get highlights of specific moments as it unfolds (although due to licensing, not between 2.45 and 5.15 on a Saturday, and that’s a great little extra.
The only place the app falls down is through its general operation, and that’s something an update or two can fix. Some clips load but won’t open, and the app itself lets you select a favourite team with notifications when new content is available, but forgets your selection when you leave the app.
But if you a football fan, then this is a no-brainer. You get instant and quality highlights soon after the whistle sounds, plus commentary and live score updates, for free… what more could you want?
