ESPN on Apple TV can now stream four live games at once

MultiCast

The MultiCast feature is only available on the fourth-generation Apple TV for those who subscribe to a TV service that carries ESPN. A new version of the ESPN App for Apple TV is now available for us customers which includes a feature called MultiCast that provides the ability to view up to four simultaneous live streams at once. Users can now stream up to four live games at the same time on the same display, doing so in various arrangements such as two side-by-side games or four with one in each corner. Or you can click to make one window go fullscreen, while others jet off to the side. While Apple TV users have previously been able to use AirPlay to play Vudu's movies and TV shows, the dedicated Vudu app is expected to become "widely available" starting August 22. The new MultiCast feature is designed for ESPN subscribers to keep an eye on multiple games so they don't have to miss any action. From there, more than 30 live streaming events from various ESPN networks will be presented.

Tech-news site Recode notes that while Major League Baseball allows viewers to watch two games simultaneously, what it's seen of ESPN's demo is "pretty slick". With it, users can swap the primary screen, flip audio, expand to full screen, and choose how many live streams appear on the screen and in what configuration. To get the MultiCast feature yourself, be sure to update your app.
