Tipping off tonight, Comcast’s Xfinity TV will become the first multichannel provider to offer its customers a live stream of ESPN Buzzer Beater, the ad hoc college basketball scoring service, on its own website.
In addition to live streaming via Xfinity.com/TV, subscribers to the Sports Entertainment tier of service are also able to watch ESPN Buzzer Beater live on TV, as well as through WatchESPN online at WatchESPN.com, on smartphones and tablets via the WatchESPN app, and via ESPN on Xbox LIVE to Gold members at no additional cost.
Buzzer Beater’s availability on Xfinity.com/TV is part of the comprehensive carriage pact Comcast inked with The Walt Disney Co. last January.
