ESPN on Xbox One officially launches today with the release of Xbox One. The launch marks the debut of WatchESPN on the latest next generation gaming and entertainment console, allowing greater discoverability, ease of navigation and a personalized, interactive sports viewing experience for the best screen in your home.

"ESPN on Xbox One brings us closer than ever before to the idea of merging gaming with sports," said Raphael Poplock, Vice President, Games and Partnerships, ESPN. "Fans are increasingly multitasking their entertainment experience, and by creating immediate access to our content in an easily accessible and discoverable fashion is a great way to serve sports fans through the latest media technology available."

Coming soon, fans will be able to download an update to the app that will add real-time scores into Snap Mode.
