ESPN Has Big Hit with Women's Soccer, Online and on TV

Yesterday's semi-final World Cup soccer between France and USA generated 450,000 unique video views on ESPN3.com, the company said today.

On television, the match was seen by 3.3 million viewers, says the company citing Nielsen data.

In a first for world soccer competition, iPad owners, who are subcribers to Verizon FiOS and Time Warner Cable and Bright House could log onto their devices anywhere in the U.S. to watch the matches. 

The number of streams on the iPad are not available, but downloads of the free ESPN3 App has reached 2.3 million, a spokeswoman told Beet.TV via email.

In June, we spoke with Tim Connnelly, VP for Digital Distrubtion for Disney/ESPN about streaming the Women's World Cup games on the iPad. We have republished that interview here.
