When you want to keep an eye on multiple games at the same time, you need ESPN’s updated tvOS app.

Thanks to a new feature called MultiCast, you can enjoy up to four live streams simultaneously from across all of the network’s programming options on your Apple TV.

ESPN revamped its tvOS back in April to deliver a new design that throws you straight into the action as soon as you launch the app, and a wide range of on-demand video content. Now it is making it easier than ever to stay up to date with live sports.

Rather than recording one event to watch later, or having to flick back and forth between channels so you don’t miss an important point or touchdown, you can now watch one, two, three, or even four streams at the same time.

There are five different layouts to choose from, and you can place the feeds in an order to suit you. You can also choose which feed you want audio from, and when the action really picks up, it’s easy to switch one stream to fullscreen so you get the best view.

Not every stream has to be live sports; you can watch the game alongside another program on the ESPN network. But with the football season here and the U.S. Open right around the corner, MultiCast couldn’t have arrived at a better time for hardcore sports fans.

To enjoy the new feature, simply download the latest version of the ESPN app on your Apple TV. Remember, you’ll need a cable subscription to get access to the content.
