ESPN yesterday announced an update to its iOS app that will let users stream their favorite sports shows on demand from their mobile device.
Previously, users of the ESPN app were out of luck if they missed the live video streams of popular shows such as Around the Horn and Pardon the Interruption. But that's set to change, according to the channel's latest press release.
