Slacker Plus and Premium to get more live coverage
Slacker will debut live streaming of ESPN Radio programming tonight with the BCS Championship title game. The live ESPN Radio stream will be available through the Slacker web app. The company says it plans to add the live streaming feature to its mobile apps soon. The ESPN Radio station is available at no charge to all Slacker users.
Slacker has two subscription plans, Slacker Radio Plus and Slacker Premium Radio, that allow users to customize two myESPN Radio channels with coverage of particular sports and teams. Slacker says it plans to make additional live ESPN programming available to Plus and Premium subscribers.
Slacker and ESPN announced in September of last year that they would team up to stream sports over the Slacker network.
