Highlights bad...from ESPN 2/5
Highlight videos are now unwatchable - just blocks that render into pigments - never clarity. Used to be a problem that would render into clarity. Now...just awful. And then they trap you into watching an add, delimiting all other app functionality until it’s done playing 🤮 Slimy
Horrible consistency 1/5
I just don’t understand your inability to be an elite app. You own some of the greatest companies in this country but your app branding is terrible. NBC sports and Barstool are such a better product. Can I please get a real answer why?? Every single time you update your app, I have to re-login my credentials. Please explain why you are so behind the times? ESPN +, I PAY for every month and you cannot remember my login info, miserable.
Slow doesn’t cast well at all. Total crap. Don’t download.
Buffering in 2020 1/5
Have the app to watch ufc events. I cast this to the tv from an iPhone X on WiFi. You can tell when popular events are on, normally as it approaches the main card, the buffering begins. This app can’t go more than a minute without a 10-20 second buffer. Ridiculous experience, have already cancelled the annual subscription.
Cannot ACTIVATE ESPN+ on my AppleTV!! 2/5
I CANNOT ACTIVATE my ESPN+ subscription on my AppleTV! I have tried every device I have to try to enter every activation code presented to my by the AppleTV app and NOTHING HAS WORKED! According to Reddit, there seems to be some stupid bug that will not let me activate my AppleTV ESPN+ account while it is on my Comcast WiFi network. If that is the case....someone needs to fix this immediately!!
By Adam Souza
Just made me miss a UFC fight and still not loading for the main event. What a rip off.
Don’t bother 1/5
This app is hot garbage. You can’t stream anything regardless of signal strength or speed. Every time it’s a new reason. “Re-authenticate your account” “it seems we don’t have access to this content on this particular application”. Google it. The app has been garbage from day 1. Wish someone would have warned me.
PAID FOR SERVICE THAT DOESNT WORK!! AND TECHNICAL SUPPORT DOESNT PICK UP THE PHONE 1/5
By Monkey manny oh
These guys seriously let me down
It Lacks 2/5
When I pay money for an app I expect some reasonable content. ESPN+ does not provide that, unless you are a big fan of European soccer then it’s all there. It is obvious that ESPN is protecting its prime content against us nasty cord cutters and that will ultimately be to their demise. We are here to stay and if you cheat us on available programming the word gets out and your brand suffers. You would think your high paid execs would figure out that it is crucial to draw people in, not drive them away...bye bye
ESPN+ is useless 2/5
By Unlock now
I had the ESPN+ subscription and found it a waste. It only lets you view games that are not popular unless you have a cable tv provider which provides you with ESPN. Even without ESPN+ you can still watch the popular games through the app because of having the ESPN through a cable TV company. My specific issue is trying to watch any Power 5 CFB teams. You cannot do this with just ESPN+ alone.
Never opens 2/5
This App blows. It never opens. You click on it and it just sits there with a white screen and the “spinning wheel of death”. Never loads. None of the pages, none of the time. To be clear, my phone has bars and is connected to wifi and this dumb app still won’t load or open. Even after it gets updated regularly.
iOS 14 killed ESPN 1/5
The app will not load, even when it’s uninstalled and reinstalled on the device running iOS 14. Will this be repaired soon, or will we have to wait till the end of the NBA Finals?
Not what it use to be.... 2/5
It works decent, but it’s absurd how you can no longer mirror your iPhone via an hdmi adapter. Canceling epsn plus for that sole reason.
Somewhat functional I guess. 2/5
Good app while in progress, even though it is very slow to load and my internet connection is great. Right now my biggest complaint is that it doesn’t save your place at all. So say you want to switch between shows and the game or fights you have to remember exactly where you we’re at and then fast forward back to your place EVERY TIME you exit your show for anything. If you’re watching live it’s fine but anything else no bookmark feature. Like every other app ever from Spotify to Netflix, prime, YouTube, literally every other service saves your place. Please fix this soon. It’s extremely simple and just feels negligent and lazy
Garbage Streaming 1/5
Trying to watch football. Constant disconnections and buffering issues. Have strong WiFi connection.
But of course the commercials always come through crystal clear. Get it together
Standing next to my router and can’t get scores to update. This is the 5th time today and still nothing.
Content is good, if I could only access it. 1/5
ESPN is so busy securing their content from unauthorized access, that paying users like me can’t get to what they want to watch. And make sure you set aside at least 90 minutes if you need any kind of customer service. I guess I’ll just stream your content for free instead.
Video for ads is crystal clear. 1/5
The highlight videos are not. This is completely backwards and ruins the experience.
Bad script 1/5
App would not take my account information and locked me out with DISH and I’ve changed the password 3 TIMES
Wild card standings???? 1/5
By Keepin' it Realz
It’s close to MLB playoffs. How about a simple way to check the wild card standings. C’mon ESPN!
By Thisis aggravating
If there was a choice, nobody would deal with this garbage
All my sports but make the x an X 4/5
By SRQ Drew
When waiving a video and then closing is extremely tough....
Please make the x an X so it's easier to close
Blank Screen App 1/5
App is mostly just a blank screen that takes forever to load. World Wide Leader in Sports is the World Wide Leader in useless apps. Expect better.
Apps cool but wish it was usable 1/5
Everything is just slow on this app. Not enjoyable to use when 80% of the time you’re just waiting for it to load. Half the time it doesn’t even open the article you clicked on through notifications.
Too many glitches 1/5
Freezes often and chrome casting only works for commercials
Update killed the app 1/5
App won’t load on ios14 with the new update.
Paid money, wants me to sign in 1/5
Unusable. I paid the subscription, but it asks me to sign in with TV Provider. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Same problem. Looked up troubleshooting (missing first quarter of the game) none of the posted solutions worked, 1-800 number had long wait times and suggested going to website. Don’t waste your money.
Tom Nieporte 5/5
Please mention Tom Nieporte the long time golf pro at Wfgc! The 10 hole is his hole. First pro to bring in women professionals to his staff
NO WIDGETS & BUSY HOME SCREEN 1/5
By Jono Lawson
No support for iOS 14 Widgets. I have to scroll through a bunch of content that has nothing to do with teams I follow to just find the scores and upcoming matchups for my favorites.
It’s missing the new widget feature to keep up with each and every game from the home screen
Goodbye ESPN Plus 2/5
The only reason I use the ESPN app is to watch live sports and with ESPN Plus, there was always plenty to watch. With the pandemic greatly reducing content and very limited college football, ESPN Plus is overpriced and I won't be renewing. The app itself is useful to watch the network for the few major pro sports games but the ESPN sports journalism is amateurish or agenda driven.
Great app but not working 5/5
Ever since last updated it’s stopped working on me. Any help?
Can’t add/remove favorites 3/5
I set up favorites a while back and now I can’t make any edits, there is a process to delete a favorite but it doesn’t work
Push notifications do NOT link you to story or highlight described in the notification 2/5
Please please please fix your push notifications so that it actually opens the story or highlight in the push notification and not some random story or highlight on the app.
Not able to access live broadcasts 1/5
By T Soul
Not able to watch live sports yesterday and again today. The eliminated WatchESPN and now the app won’t function properly. Can’t even get it to open to verify my provider.
ESPN doesn't care. TheScore is better 1/5
ESPN doesn't care to take the time to make sure that sports teams logo's lol the same when in light & dark mode. (Ex- University of Pittsburgh has 2 different logos depending what mode you're using. The non-dark mode has the correct color scheme). There are other logos wrong as well. They do not care to fix them and the league notifications for all sports lack in content compared to TheScore. If you're looking for an app switch to that one. I've been happy ever since I switched.
Live stream is awful 2/5
The live streaming service is incredibly bad. Seems to be a common occurrence. I am hooked up to fiber internet.
This app constantly slows down and speeds up live streams. I’m using an IPad Pro. It’ll play good for about 3 minutes before I need to restart the app.
No SVP SC ON-demand Replays 1/5
All I want from this app is to watch a replay of SVP’s SC. That’s it. Why is this so hard? Why is it the ONLY original show that isn’t available to watch on-demand? So absurd.
Please allow for more customization 2/5
Constant UFC updates sent as notifications
All the latest USWNT info sent as notifications
TMZ - style sports gossip sent as notifications.
For the love of everything holy, let us opt out of seeing those notifications...let us opt out of seeing WNBA scores on our hope screen on the app or UFC fight results or honestly, anything. Why can we not customize all of this?
Editing this to include my frustration with the ads...I pay for ESPN+ so that I don’t have to watch ads online - why can’t this include my mobile? Forcing me to watch an ad after a video is infuriating.
Don’t get Subscription if you use an Antenna! 1/5
By keith scheeler
I purchased a subscription to watch NFL on ESPN. I already purchased ESPN+ but I couldn’t watch Monday Night Football. The app gave me the option to get more sports by subscribing so I did. I still couldn’t watch so I contacted support. I got told I had to have a TV provider. I said I paid because I don’t have a TV Provider. She told me because of no provider I couldn’t watch it! What kind of idiots have a subscription for sports but if you get it you can’t watch it. So ESPN wants you to pay someone else and then you can watch it without paying them! I believe the CEO is an Idiot! Don’t invest in this company!
ESPN doesn’t do full access 1/5
I am subscribed to ESPN believing it would actually allow me full access to watch live games. However it wants a TV provider plus your subscription to watch light games. So the app is completely useless for what it is advertising for.
Refunds are not available.
Unable to select tv provider 1/5
The Apple TV app used to work fine however I am now unable to select my tv provider in the Apple TV app nor does it recognize the provider that is stored on my phone and shared with the Apple TV. The only way I can watch something from ESPN on the tv is through AirPlay from my phone. The Apple TV app is basically useless for me. Not ideal.
Too many ads 1/5
The app itself is fine and works for checking box scores, news and updates but watching videos is unbearable. Even with ESPN+ you still have to watch a 15-30 second ad for what could end up being a 15 second highlight. The videos are designed to be short clips that are easily accessible but the ads ruin the experience. Maybe it’s just me but I don’t have the patience to watch videos in a feed when every video gets interrupted by an ad longer than the clip itself. Super frustrated.
This app is poop 1/5
This app does not have live sports. I cut the chord with cable and you cannot access live sports with out cable pffffttthhhh
CONSTANTLY! Will freeze on sign in. TERRIBLE
Airplay fail 2/5
App won’t airplay to anything. I know it’s not the connection because other shows like Hulu etc. all work just fine
When Disney + came out I purchased the bundle that included ESPN + along with Hulu thought it would be great come football season to watch Monday Night Football. Well here we are first MNF game of season and ya can’t watch it live with the app. Like what’s the point of ESPN + if ya can’t watch MNF I don’t get it very dissatisfied
ESPN app 1/5
All it does is tell me I’m off line even though every other App is working
