CBS launches SEC college sports app for iPhone
CBS Sports announced the introduction of an iPhone and iPod touch app that will stream live its complete 2009 Southeastern Conference college football slate, including this Saturday's matchup pitting Arkansas against third-ranked Alabama. In addition to streaming the entire SEC on CBS schedule, the $9.99 CBS Sports: College application offers users in-game box scores and player stats, even as an overlay on top of the video simulcast. The app (developed in conjunction with mobile broadcast solutions provider MobiTV) also boasts a full Division FBS college football scoreboard, individual "gamecenters" for Top 25 showdowns, polls, headlines and standings.
CBS Sports: College will offer a total of 15 live SEC contests in the weeks ahead, concluding with the SEC Championship Game on Dec. 5. The 110th Army-Navy College Football Classic will also be streamed live to mobile. In addition, CBS Sports: College will also include select games from the network's 2009-10 SEC college basketball broadcast schedule.
