ESPN3 is not available through AT&T U-verse or any other cable provider for traditional television viewing. ESPN3 is an online viewing alternative given by ESPN that provides access to some of the networks’ content. ESPN3 is accessible via WatchESPN.com.
ESPN3 is intended to provide access to programmes much beyond what the ESPN network can run on its primary channels. On a Saturday in the fall, for instance, ESPN cannot literally air more than one game per channel in each time slot throughout the day. In addition to the nationally aired alternatives on ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPNU, ESPN3 enables the corporation to provide access to games with regional or specialised appeal via its website.
