Will not stream to TV 1/5
Can’t use an HDMI cable from iphone to TV. Video cuts off when plugged into cable. That is what I use it for to watch College Baseball not shown TV broadcaster.
Cancel ESPN+ via Apple ID or get billed 1/5
To cancel this service, be sure to do it thru your Apple ID account and Subscriptions. I spent 20 painful minutes on phone with ESPN rep (she couldn’t find my email address searching the wrong first letter) and NEVER said a thing about Apple or iTunes — hence i still got automatically billed.
Beast app I Owen 5/5
Everything is great
By Villeyball_11 HC
They need to add NCAA volleyball as an option to add as a favorite.
The worst! 1/5
1. Won’t recognize my Spectrum access!
2. Goes to black on my I-pad.
3. No technical support!
4. Watch ESPN worked just fine but no longer available.
It doesn’t let me watch any content 1/5
I’m trying to watch replays of the F1 races and is not letting me. If this is a way for you ESPN people to charge extra or something forget it. I knew the minute You ESPN people took ove the broadcasting of the sport here in America, this was going to happen. I never had this issue with NBC.
Crashes Often 2/5
Great UI and organized neatly, but I don’t really get to experience that cause it crashes after 5-10 min of use consistently.
Constantly drops video (not sound) and no video output on iPad. 2/5
Video regularly slows down, followed by ‘Benny Hill’ speeding up whilst watching football.
iPad video out thru HDMI is not supported.
Freezes, drops out when streaming and does not allow fast forwarding when watching past events.
Doesn't work for me 1/5
By Kip Kano
This app doesn't even work for me. Won't allow me to enter my cable credentials. So I can't even stream content through this app.
Like the old app 1/5
I don’t like having to turn on my location to use the app, a step not required with the old app. I also like the old app better as you can go straight to the sport you want to see.
Non functional and slow 1/5
This app doesn’t work at all on an IPad. Playback is constantly not available. And it’s beyond slow on playback in good WiFi areas
Not in favor of 3/5
I am not in favor of the way that the ESPN app now has integrated the WatchESPN into it. It is a little more difficult to find what you are wanting to watch. I prefer using the WatchESPN app. I do like using the ESPN app for my sports news.
In-App Purchases 1/5
What is going on with all of these ridiculous In-App purchases BS? Life used to be so much simpler where my subscription to cable got me access to all sort of channels but now I have to pay every channel separate month subscriptions to watch. As if they aren’t making enough money anyways that we have to pay ridiculous monthly subscriptions. Honestly, why do I even subscribe to cable anymore which I’m cutting off since there’s no point. Unfortunately, now I’ll have to be making 10 to 20 separate charges. SMH!
Error code 0033 1/5
Logged in with valid credentials with tv provider. ESPN watch up says I am not authorized to watch this. Even after uninstalling and installing again the problem persists. Cannot use to its full extent.
Not good enough 1/5
This app is bad. Ad load is so heavy. Video loading time and quality is sub par. I want espn to be my sports destination and this app is just not sufficient. Do better.
By Disgruntled Xavier
Videos NEVER work. I hate watching an ad just to have a blank black screen during when the video is actually supposed to be. Glitchy, freezes, never load notifications it pushes out. If there were something else out there with the reach that ESPN had I would use it in a second.
The most useless app on iTunes. Can’t access any games or sports. What’s the point????
Too much lagging and bugs. Prefer the watch espn app over this!!
No wrestling 1/5
Have little to no wrestling. Have nothing on what’s going on in the NCAA, and barely anything on the International tournaments.
Very slow app 1/5
Poor user interface
Bad App 1/5
WatchESPN app stated go to this app to watch the same channels clearer and that’s a lie. It’s bad and needs to have a better layout to the channels like WatchESPN. Never going to use this one again unless forced to by ESPN.
Great idea! 1/5
By Hate nook
Terrible app. Something is always broken. Too bad, great sports; lacrosse, college baseball & others you can’t see on television. Too bad it doesn’t work. Leave it to ESPN.
ESPN + not worth money 1/5
Garbage streaming every single time I stream and especially during the main card fights which is the whole reason I watch. After that I exit the app and reload it which takes up to 2-3 minutes and it’s live so I miss everything and it ruins what happens.
Not compatible 1/5
Payed for a ESPN+ subscription but my lighting to HDMI adaptor isn’t compatible and just shows a black screen as soon as I plug it in. So I have to watch the event on my phone instead, what a waste of money.
I shouldn’t pay 1/5
By BUC EM
For ESPN plus and have it be slow. Use my money for bandwidth not profits
I don’t need a pop up on WatchESPN app 1/5
I only redownloaded it give it 1 star since you insist on not letting me use the WatchESPN without harassing me with a pop up every time I open it. I only watch espn for sports. I don’t care about your politically slanted news or talk shows. I don’t care about race baiting. There are better apps to get scores.
Terrible when casting 1/5
Watching live events from my phone is flawless but when casting to google fiber box is where the flaws begin. Its glitchy and pauses every ten seconds. Having high speed google fiber i know its not my internet connection. Its beyond irritating. In 2019 these things should be seamless. Get it together espn.
Buggy beyond belief 1/5
This app has great content but when it comes to rewinding or fast forwarding, there’s constant trouble shooting. I pay $5 a month for a product to work.
I like notifications, but not every 5 minutes 2/5
You guys gotta back off on the push notifications, no one is so absorbed in ESPN that they need updates that often.
Casting + Live= Trash 1/5
Using this app to cast live events is a nightmare. Stopping, skipping, freezing that is 90% of it. It becomes so annoying watching espn events are no longer entertaining.
30 second adds for a 30 second video is ridiculous. Also, half the time the ads come in perfect quality and the video is so blurry I can’t tell what is going on.
Super slow. Doesn’t work over LTE. 2/5
Always slow to load. Articles sometimes fail to load at all, requiring a back and forth. More importantly never works over LTE (shows a message “you’re offline”).
Pay for content that doesn’t work right 1/5
Absolutely pathetic that I pay for an app that doesn’t work properly. I want to watch UFC without it lagging at an unwatchable rate ruining the fights. Pathetic attempt again by ESPN.
Please stop sending me alerts even though I have mews turned off. 3/5
I have the news turned off but I get multiple ones per day matter what I do. It all started with the last update.
Very frustrating, may cancel 1/5
Although have App, keeps sending me back to sign up and says stream not available when schedule has it.
Half Of The App Never Seems To Work 2/5
While in general I like the app, there are constantly bugs. Click on an alert, it dumps you on the home page, and you can’t find the link you were after. Go to the Contact page, the email function won’t work (but, surprise, all the social media links work just fine). Try to look at the NCAA bracketology, the regions are half hidden under the banner, so you can’t access them. And on, and on, and on.
What Can I Say? 2/5
ESPN+ Needs more coverage. Viewing your favorite team's Squad or Roster is literally hidden. The interface is so basic and boring.
Flawed but useful 3/5
The app does a decent job of giving you information and scores. That’s not really difficult though. Where the app is severely lacking is in customization. You can choose a default tab but it’s kind of hit or miss whether it will actually open on that tab. All I want are scores but it opens on News more than half the time. You can add favorite sports and teams but you can’t take away. I hate basketball but every time I go on the app the NBA is right there, annoying me as I scroll past it.
Slow with a terrible user experience 1/5
This app was built by a company that doesn’t know how to built consumer tech. It loads very slow and despite my best efforts to get to the content I want as quickly as possible (e.g. watch formula 1 or baseball), I’m forced to pause an auto playing video about college basketball that I couldn’t care less about.
Please consider your user experience when designing the next version of this app—hire somebody new if you have to!
Defects on AppleTV 1/5
Pause/Play broken on Apple TV. You can hit the Play/Pause button on the remote but cannot hit it again to un-pause. You have to hit the trackpad to un-pause. That’s stupid. You need to test your app!!!
Also, for Tennis replays, would help if you actually named the replays appropriately with who’s playing, as opposed to having 4 with the same name/time and yet it’s different matches so I have to guess as to which one is the right replay. Your WatchESPN app was much better at handling this. Way to go on the step backwards! 👎
Very upset 1/5
I have been trying for the past hour and a half to watch the duke v unc basketball game. And I’m at the point where I’ve tried re-putting my tv subscription into the account three times and all I get is a loading circle followed by nothing on the app. Very disappointed considering espn is supposed to be the top provider for sports.
You pay to be able to watch live games right? But then you try to cast the games to your tv and then it asks for your tv provider...... however gives you the option to cast in Spanish for free?????? Makes sense to me right....no! absolutely junk, glad I only did the trial for March madness won’t be using this garbage again, shame on espn
Biased sports entertainment 1/5
Might as well call Duke sports.
Can’t click on provider 1/5
App automatically pulls up directv login when I fire up the app. So, I hit cancel to switch to a different provider. However, it does nothing when I click on my provider. No matter how many times I’ve re-booted the app, I can’t get passed that screen. App is worthless.
App crashes all the time. 1/5
Had the old watch app. Worked fine. Then I was told I had to download this app and all it does it crash every time I open it. Trash
Terrible app 1/5
Terrible. Slow and not well designed. Keep the Watch ESPN app as it is far superior and more flexible.
From bad to worse! 1/5
The app is incredibly slow, often closes unexpectedly, and has a ton of commercials which almost renders that app unusable!
Now since the last upgrade videos don’t even work right, they play audio but no video!
Keep up the great work espn, pretty soon no one will use this app!
What happened to WatchEspn. This one wants me to sign in with my AT&T account. I DON’T HAVE an AT&T account.
