The Sense TV app comes pre-installed exclusively on a number of HTC handsets, such as the One M7 and, more recently, the M8. It serves as an image-heavy, contextual remote that tries to take the hassle out of keeping up with what's playing on which channels. There's also a sports component that places emphasis on athletic shows and current scores. Today's update takes that last element and mixes it with good ol' American football and a shot of rugby.

What's new:

  • Sense TV Sports now support American Football (NFL, NCAA)
  • Sense TV Sports now support Tri-Nation Rugby

Having long already supported soccer to appeal to its global users, HTC is now throwing a bone to its American customers by giving attention to what we in the States think of when we say football. The app keeps tabs on the two most well-known leagues, the NFL and the NCAA. Then there's rugby, which, despite middling interest on this side of the pond, is a similar enough sport to confuse unknowing passersby.

The widget below won't be of any use for people without an HTC device, and it isn't really necessary for people who already have the app pre-installed either. Nevertheless, here it is.

The app was not found in the store. :-(
