Foxtel today reminded its Foxtel Sports and Foxtel Platinum subscribers that the popular WatchESPN app is available as part of their subscription, at no extra charge*. The reminder comes as ESPN has started airing the acclaimed 30 for 30 documentary O.J.: Made in America.
O.J.: Made in America made its initial debut in January 2016 at the Sundance Film Festival to critical praise. The 10-hour documentary features five, two-hour episodes on ESPN starting from 8.30pm 21 June – 25 June; however, Foxtel Sports and Foxtel Platinum subscribers have early access to all five episodes, to binge on, via WatchESPN starting at 10.30pm, immediately following the first episode’s premiere on ESPN on 21 June.
The five-part documentary-event is the first by ESPN Films and explores themes of race and celebrity in the US, zeroing in on the rise and fall of O.J. Simpson, from his early days as a darling football hero and movie star; to his trial for the murder of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman; his acquittal and eventual prison sentence for a subsequent crime.
WatchESPN streams of the best international sport on your PC, tablet or mobile device. Foxtel Sports Pack subscribers and Foxtel Platinum subscribers get access to a range of live international sports, online only events and matches simulcast with ESPN television including NFL, NBA, MLB, ESPN films and more at no additional cost.
