Looks like ESPN is adding aggregate conference-related programming from ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN3 and ESPNews on their WatchESPN app.

- Men's and women's basketball.
- Replay's of college football.
- Conference channels include: ACC, America East, Atlantic Sun, Big South, Big West, Horizon, Mid-American, Metro Atlantic Athletic, Missouri Valley, Northeast, Ohio Valley, Southern, Sun Belt, Southland, and a channel that combines historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) that are part of the Mid-Eastern Athletic, Southwestern Athletic and Central Intercollegiate Athletic conferences.

ESPN is launching the 15 college channels with Apple TV and Roku devices because “we wanted to deliver a TV experience,” Phillips said. “This is one of the first times when the TV devices led off first.” In addition, he said, the viewership on those devices is significant — in fact, time spent viewing WatchESPN on Apple TV and Roku is higher than the average time cable TV viewers watch the traditional linear channels.
