    ESPN has updated its WatchESPN app with new support for split-screen viewing of content. For example, users could watch a live stream of one of ESPN's many channels while simultaneously pulling up some on-demand video content or live sports scores.

    The feature is exclusive to newer iPads and the iPad mini currently, but will be coming to other devices like the Apple TV and Xbox in the future.

    AllThingsD has more on how the feature works:

    As with many of these apps, live streaming is U.S. only and requires authentication through one of these paid television providers: AT&T U-verse, Bright House Networks, Charter, Comcast XFINITY, Cox, Midcontinent Communications, Optimum, Time Warner Cable, or Verizon FiOS TV.

    WatchESPN is a free download from the App Store. [Direct Link]

    I could see this being cool for TVs in sports bars and stuff, where lots of people might be looking at a single screen, but it seems silly on an iOS device.

    DISH Network needs to get their **** together and get approved to use WatchESPN.
