ESPNET TO ALTER SPORTS ZONE FOR FANS ALWAYS LOOKING TO SCORE
Published February 6, 1996
To "jazz up" its ESPNet SportZone Web site, Starwave VP Patrick Naughton has developed a program to "display sports scores at the bottom of the screen, similar to the one ESPN uses on its cable channel," according to USA TODAY. Users will be able to customize displays, choosing which teams and sports to display. The display will include a "chime" to mark score changes and ads (Jim Kim, USA TODAY, 2/6).
