What's new: ESPN Beta
ESPN.com

We're listening to your feedback and are working to make ESPN.com easier to navigate so you can quickly find the sports news and information you care about most -- from scores to analysis. Here are just some of the improvements you'll find with ESPN Beta, and a sneak peek at the new and improved ESPN.com.

Some details of our new design

Main Engagement and Carousel


Front-and-center location across a majority of the site to provide the top editorial picks of our stories and videos.

You'll notice a larger video player. In fact, video is more prominent and available throughout the site.

Personalization

Personalize your ESPN.com experience by selecting teams, players, sports and columnists you'd like to track in the personalization corner. You can find this with the myESPN drop-down menu. Your selected teams will be highlighted in scoreboards, as well as MyHeadlines throughout the site. You will have easy access to everything you are tracking on myESPN. Coming soon: Your fantasy teams will be available in the myESPN drop-down menu.

Here's a quick guide to our new navigation:


All Sports: One-click access to sports news, scoreboards, standings and team pages.
Columnists: The centralized location for commentary and great sports writing.
Page 2: Click here to explore the world of Page 2's off-beat humor.
Fantasy & Games: All fantasy news and leagues, mini-games and interactive games.
Video: Access to new, enhanced video content.
SportsNation: Where sports fans sound off about the day's news and events.
The Life: For the sporting life, you can find tickets, travel, contests and shopping. Buy game passes, book your travel, compete in contests or shop for cool things.

ESPN.com is working hard while it transitions to its new design. During the course of beta testing, portions of ESPN Beta will showcase the new format, navigation and personalization, including the MLB, NBA, The Life and Columnist pages. In the coming weeks, ESPN.com will complete the redesign, including modifications of the NFL, NHL, College Football, College Basketball and other major sports pages.


Click around and explore ESPN Beta, then share your feedback with us. It is possible you will encounter a few bugs along the way as we work to build the new site. Your patience and support are appreciated as we bring you the new ESPN.com in the coming months. Thank you for your interest in the ESPN Beta.
