ESPN app for Apple TV updated for multiple stream viewing

Have a fourth-generation Apple TV and a hankering to watch four college football games simultaneously? If you’re a subscriber to a cable or satellite service that offers ESPN and use the ESPN Apple TV app, check later today for a new version of the app that will let you watch four live feeds from ESPN simultaneously.

The update was reported by Recode today, and apparently users just need to long-press on the Siri Remote while watching an ESPN feed to invoke a split-screen viewing capability. With the capability, it’s possible to display four streams at the same time. ESPN expects the new feature to be popular this fall, when it can broadcast up to 55 college football games on any Saturday.
