ESPN’s “Ultimate Remote” is on the Way
ESPN Consumer Products, the sports network’s speciality division, has launched a new product in time for Father’s Day, a multiuse remote control device called ESPN: The Ultimate Remote. The device is both a home theater remote control, and an Internet-capable device that grabs up-to-the-minute sports news and scores.
ESPN teamed up with tvCompass Inc. on the device.
“Our Wi-Fi remote control is the ultimate enhancement to our fan’s at-home sports experience by providing real-time/simultaneous sports news and information while watching any TV programming,” ESPN Consumer Products’ vice president and general manager, Steve Cipolla, said as part of the announcement.
