can someone please explain how espn3.com differs from espn360? is espn3 just rebranding?

ESPN360 was based on the Move Media player which required yet another extension to be installed and was not available for Linux (I'm not sure if it was available for OSX or not). While switching back to pure Flash, they took the opportunity to change the name as well.

There may be some other differences, but i haven't noticed them yet.

on ubuntu and ff 3.5. Definitely seems to be flash, which linux has (finally) figured out. I saw a couple of games in flawless quality on espn3.

Maybe you are thinking about MS's Silverlight? Check out http://www.mono-project.com/Moonlight . This is an open source implementation of Silverlight for linux. Still buggy, but I finally don't have to restart/wait for the good folks at mgovideo to watch the mgoblue videos :)

four Wolverine athletic contests streamed to us at the same time? Who cares about other stuff going on. M baseball, softball, LAX and Crew on the screen at the same time- now that's entertainment. They can fit the spring football game in too.

The should launch ESPN Ann Arbor before ESPN Detroit. Makes sense to me.

I no longer have the sports package (sadly no more GolTV) so i had to watch the Barcelona-Real Madrid game on it. The quality was not as good as 2 years ago when i streamed some of the Euro 2008 games but its better than justin and most of the other online streams.
