ESPN App Guide

Want to keep your audience updated about what’s going on in collegiate sports? Or share headlines about your favorite leagues like the NHL or NBA - without turning on ESPN?

The best way to do that is with Fugo’s ESPN app!

The app lets you run the latest ESPN headlines on screen without having to flip to the channel or refresh a feed.

Just install the app, choose what category of sports news you want to see, and then watch as Fugo automatically pulls the latest headlines for you.

With Fugo’s ESPN App you can:

  • Select an ESPN topic - top headlines, NHL headlines, MLB headlines, ESPNU
  • Select a “duration” for your app inside a playlist
  • Select the delay (in seconds) between headlines
  • Customize the summary, headers and background color
  • Save the changes and watch them instantly on your screen. At any point if you want to change them, edit the topic and watch them update immediately on your screen!

Here’s how to get started:

1. Install the ESPN App

1.1. Log into your Fugo account. If you don’t have one, you can create one here and start your 14 day free trial!

1.2 Once you’ve logged in/created an account, on the navigation bar, click “Apps.”


1.3 Scroll down until you see the app or to save time you can search for it in the search bar at the top of the store.


1.4 Once you’ve found it click “Try App” to create a new playlist with the app!


Now that you’ve added the app to the playlist, let’s take a look at what’s next: how to customize the app settings!

2. Customize the ESPN App


2.1 A pop-up window will appear where you can customize the app’s headline and appearance settings.

2.2 First select the ESPN topic you want to display headlines for - top headlines, NHL headlines, NFL headlines, etc...

2.3 Next, you can set the duration for your app (how long it will run inside of a playlist before the next piece of content)

2.4 Now you can decide how much of a delay to have between headlines by setting the seconds in “Next Post Delay.”

2.5 Now, you can change the look of your app by setting the headline, summary, and background color.

2.6 When you’re finally done, click “Save Changes” at the bottom right of the window.

Hint: If you want to change ESPN’s app settings at any point, just click the “Setup” button on the app’s panel on the playlist page.


Almost done! Now that the app is all set up just the way you want it, let’s now take a look at the finishing touches: building your playlist and publishing it!

3. Build Your Playlist


3.1 Name your playlist (we suggest making it relevant to prevent confusion from other playlists as you make more.)

3.2 Click “Select Screens” to choose where you want your playlist published.

3.3 If you want, you can add more content to the playlist by selecting “Add More Content” and choosing other apps/uploading media.


3.4 Last but not least, you can change the schedule of your content by choosing the start and end date, and then click “Week Schedule” to adjust the days and times your content will be displayed.

4. Publish Your Playlist

4.1 Once you have everything set up the way you want it, click “Publish” in the bottom right hand corner of the screen to publish or schedule your content.

4.2 If you aren’t quite ready to push it to screen, you can click “Finish Later” and come back to the playlist at any time.
