The UK’s BBC began to test the waters for BBC Sport apps globally last summer with the launch of a special app featuring content from the London Olympics , and today that game is entering its next quarter: BBC Worldwide today released a new BBC Sport app for iOS , the first that will be made available to consumers outside the UK. The BBC says that an Android version will also be coming soon. For now, this looks like an attempt at laying the groundwork: as with the Olympics app from this past summer, there are no videos of sporting events included in the app. Instead, it focuses on sports news, live scores, stats, commentary and game/event analysis. The app says it will cover international fixtures but it will likely continue to keep a focus on UK sports, so all you England Premier League, Rugby, Cricket and Curling fans out there can rejoice.
