Slacker just further reaffirmed their commitment to sports radio with a new offering from ESPN radio. They announced that they are releasing six new national, regional, and Spanish language ESPN stations dedicated to live streaming of ESPN shows and sporting events. That is all now accessible on their website and through the Slacker BlackBerry app. The live ESPN Radio stations on Slacker include the ESPN Radio and ESPN Deportes Radio networks, which stream sporting events and hosted programs, as well as four regional stations featuring programming for New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Dallas.
According to the announcement:
For the next 30 days, all six live ESPN stations will be available to all Slacker Radio listeners. After this period these stations will be available to all Slacker Radio Plus and Slacker Premium Radio subscribers. The previously released interactive ESPN Radio station will remain free and available to all Slacker listeners.
This seems like another way Slacker is trying to convince users to jump on the Plus or Premium bandwagon. Personally I am loving the Premium subscription. Check out the stations at www.slacker.com or download the app from the same link.
