ESPN STAR Sports’ first multi-sports broadband network aims to change the way fans watch sports. A revolutionary broadband service, ESPN Player offers on-demand online access to world-class sports and programming, bringing fans closer to the excitement by giving them control to decide what, where, when and how they want to watch their favourite sports.

In layman terms, ESPN Player is an online site that you can access via logging – in with your ASTRO account number and then stream on your respective broadband to watch the sports games available in its library.

Do note the following:

•    The library of available games is dependant on ESPN.
•    If you do not have an ASTRO account, you can’t use this service. And no, you can’t pay to only access the ESPN Player.
•    If you have an ASTRO account but you do not subscribe to ESPN, you can’t use this service either.
•    The ESPN Player is currently available in Malaysia & Singapore, with plans in the works to bring this service to
more countries.
•    Once you have signed up, you can use the same account details for ASTRO bPlayer too. Or if you already signed-up for ASTRO bPlayer, then use the same account details to log-in.

So basically, you have to be an ASTRO + ESPN sports package subscriber , then you can enjoy accessing the ESPN Player at no extra cost.
