CBSSports.com College Network is rolling out a set of new iPhone and iTouch apps that give college sports fans live audio and on-demand video clips from USC, North Carolina, Oklahoma State and others. The plan is to eventually offer apps from over 60 schools; the first six are launching today. The apps cost $4.99, and include news updates, game schedules and athlete bios, with real-time scoring, play-by-play stats and All Access streaming subscriptions coming down the pike. Sports range from football and basketball, to soccer and tennis.
This is just CBS (NYSE: CBS) Sports’ latest college iPhone app to offer some combination of streaming content (video or audio): In September, it teamed up with MobiTV to offer a $9.99 streaming video app for SEC games, and NCAA Championship coverage in March. MobiTV also partnered with rival NBC Sports to launch apps for Notre Dame and the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Release.
