WatchESPN app reviews

  • Why did you purchase F1 rights? 1/5

    By Toyo7475
    By far the worst decision Liberty Media has made.. espn is a garbage network with garbage products. So you pay a high price just to relay some other entity’s broadcast? Please ... before this weekend give up the rights to another brand that will care about its customers... Absolute garbage espn
  • POS.. Know what that means? 1/5

    By Pak H
    Unfortunately, they have the rights to stream lots of events. Be prepared for a lot of frustration. When it works it’s passable. Wish that were the case all the time. Somebody else must have produced the Roku app. It actually works, unlike the iPhone/iPad version. GOOD LUCK! You’re gonna need it!

    First time leaving a review. WHY HASNT THIS BEEN UPDATED FLT THE IPHONE X YET?!? Just blows my mind!!!!
  • 0 for 1 2/5

    By 2010 Equinox owner
    App prompted me for a review right after I tried to watch my first time. Too bad all I got was a message that the broadcast was having technical difficulties. I hope this gets better but based on other reviewers I have doubts.
  • LOVE IT NOW! 5/5

    By IcemanfromLA225!
    Thanks 4 adding FIRST TAKE replay to the lineup!!
  • Worked for me! 4/5

    By JinxMar
    I was prepared for lags and freezing watching the Stanford v FGCU women’s basketball on my iphone with this app but had a good experience. Only three short freezes. Otherwise it kept up with my wife’s iPad well.
  • Video Playback Defect 1/5

    By SwankPeRFection
    When are you going to fix the issue described below?!?! You can’t pause a video and then lock the phone either because the issue is the same when you unlock it and then try to unpause the video. This is on iOS 11.2.6 and iPhone 6. FIX THIS PROBLEM!!! While playing a Replay video (tennis in this case) and an email comes in, if you either Pause or just Home button exit the app and go reply to the email, when you come back to the video, there will be an error that the video cannot be played and you also cannot select that same video and play it again from the Replay list unless you go back one level to sport choice and then back into sport type and pick the video again. You need to fix this as it makes it hard to just Pause a video playback, go respond to a quick email and come right back to the action without having to restart the video and scrub it forward to where it decided to crash out.
  • Greatest 5/5

    By Reece1011
    Love it
  • Love it! 5/5

    By Pro_Gamer_Gymnast_09
    I’m a gymnast and cheer for Georgia, but sometimes i miss their meets. I can always rely on this app to watch the ones i miss! This app is amazing an never glitches.
  • Update is worse. 2/5

    By Crysstopher
    This app was great until they updated it. Now, if you want to watch a replay of an event, the “control play” bar at the bottom of the screen stays up the whole time. If you fast forward to what you want to see, it doesn’t “fade” off of the screen. It stays up the whole time, taking up the bottom of the screen, blocking out 1/3 of the picture.
  • Horrible app 1/5

    By Tom562224
    Stream totally unreliable. Worst streaming app known to mankind
  • Espn3 5/5

    By Narloy
    I love this app. My only way to watch my fav sport. Even the replay is very enjoyable to watch. Thank you.
  • Tv Provider 4/5

    By Tumblr.Photography
    I love this app but recently its been very annoying. When I sign in to my tv provider, I never had to put my actual information in which was good. But now its asking me to do so and it’s preventing me from watching my teams play.
  • Bulls-eye Bill 5/5

    By Hurricane250
    Watching the NCAA wrestling tournament using this app. Worked very nice. Keep it up.
  • Awesome 5/5

    By Gatorpr
    Awesome app. Use it all the time to watch any ESPN televised sports event.
  • Do NOT bother 1/5

    By Lady Knitsalot
    I have NEVER been able to get this app to function. I have deleted & redownloaded. I have reset all the settings. I have the most recent iOS. I have the most recent app download. I HAVE SPENT FORTY FIVE MINUTES WITH TECHNICAL SUPPORT, DOING ***EVERYTHING*** THEY SUGGESTED TO FIX IT. Nothing. It simply doesn’t work.
  • Video replay needs work 2/5

    By Tritsch57
    Watching a replay on an iPhone, I had to restart the video several times when I paused the playback to do something else. When I would return to the video it would temporarily restart and then error out. I had to restart the video and search for where I was. Very frustrating!
  • Absolute Garbage 1/5

    By espn app is garbage
    Imagine an app so incompetent that it will not let you manually sign into your cable subscription that provides you access to ESPN. Imagine an app that will ONLY let you auto login from the WiFi network you’re presently connected to. If you want to watch a game ANYWHERE besides the confines of your home on this app on a WiFi device, you’re screwed because this app is incompetent and has an overriding auto log in feature.
  • Horrible and Frustrating App 2/5

    By 5gigi5
    Trying to watch live tennis coverage with this app. Some days live coverage works for some of the stadiums in play and not others. And some times during the day there’s no live coverage at all. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app. My internet connection is strong. Watching app on both FireTV and iPad.
  • Why do i have to sign in every other day???? 1/5

    By Frustrated285
    Annoying. I delete and reload this app at least once a day. 3/13. App not working. Again.
  • Efficient for Watching Games 4/5

    By CJ251436
    This app lets me see games that are otherwise not available on tv. It has brought me hours upon hours of entertainment. However, the games are sometimes unavailable to watch even if you are fully connected to the internet. I also find it slightly irritating that the game starts over if you temporarily exit the app. Overall, though, I think that this is wonderful.
  • Access to women's sports 4/5

    By Rate987
    Being able to access ESPN3 has allowed me to watch women's games that never make it to broadcast TV. Not five stars because ESPN allows local TV providers to hold out the SEC network for a higher tier subscription - I'm talking about you Comcast!
  • On the plus side, I won't have to use this app until college football starts.. 1/5

    By Raarons78
    I am able to watch a 4K movies on every device simultaneously. - 2 Roku’s & 2 4K Apple tv’s. 2 are hardwired, 2 are wireless -but this service can’t handle 20mins of live game broadcast, with only 1 device connected to the 200Mbps connection, without buffering. I purposely disconnected every device trying to troubleshoot the problem.. I wonder if Netflix or amazon is interested in buying into ESPN streaming. Now, I’ve heard from others who have left bad reviews about ESPN app, have been blacklisted. Their app no longer works.. we’ll see
  • A waste 1/5

    By Kz1100
    Your event is about to begin please stand by. Your event is about to begin please stand by Are ever gonna show it. The streaming service is right up up there with ESPN. Sub par.
  • Amazing 5/5

    By Belieberswaggggg
    I can watch anywhere I go. Best app.
  • Outstanding coverage!! 5/5

    By aggie gan
    Appreciative that espn live affords the viewer to watch the game on the app.
  • Nice app! 5/5

    By Kbrance09
    Nice app to watch ncaa games
  • When are we getting an iPhone X update and fresh new look? 2/5

    By EliTlake6
    I honestly don't understand how a popular app made by ESPN operates and looks so ancient. The ESPN app was updated months ago. What's up? Give iPhone X support and renew the UI similar to the ESPN app.
  • Frustrating 1/5

    By b.memoli
    Hands down, one of the most frustrating yet unavoidable apps made. Unavoidable because it’s pretty much the only sports streaming app/station where you can find the sport/team you want to watch when you want to watch it. But, absolutely and excruciatingly frustrating. You can’t watch a single game, no matter how fast and good your internet/WiFi may be, without it buffering constantly, going in and out of clarity focus, or jumping/skipping ahead and therefore making you miss some important plays or events. But don’t worry, because commercials and advertisements come in crystal clear! Funny how that works isn’t it? It’s been like this for years, fix it!!!
  • Great app 5/5

    By Bob J Johnson
    When big 12 conference tournament comes around and I have chemo treatment. What am I to do? WATCH ON ESPN ON MY IPAD!, enough said. Doesn’t get any Better!
  • Great app 5/5

    By Berney47
    One of the best sports apps out there.
  • Awesome 5/5

    By 1738bruh
    Fast, great quality.
  • Sudden changes 1/5

    By Hhhhggytf
    This app used to be decent now it automatically logs you into whatever home network your are using the wifi on and won't let you log into your actual providers account. ESPN you really dropped the ball once again. I'll be deleting the app and cancelling my tv provider subscription to ESPN because now both are useless to me. Keep up the terrible work!
  • Annoyed 4/5

    By Sduke01
    The app itself is pretty good, I just wish I could use it on my Visio smartTV. I don't like watching on my tablet when I'm at home with an expensive WiFi enabled TV on my wall. If I can watch YouTube on my tv, I should be able to easily use WatchESPN, without buying anything extra...
  • Bad app 1/5

    By Gully Swazz
    This app absolutely stinks. I can’t watch anything because there are so many controls. Very confusing app. When I watch NBA games, it is so glitchy and suddenly turns off. This app is one of the worst apps on my phone. The ESPN app is not great ether. Both are glitchy and stink.
  • Cricket 5/5

    By mongo ny city
    Cyril gaskin from Barbados West Indies love it when I see ESPN showing my number one sport in the world cricket.
  • The Hue Jackson of Apps 1/5

    By MissedTheGame
    If you can go 17 seconds without buffering, you’re extremely lucky. Worst live sports app available.
  • Great App 5/5

    By Luckypom888
    Enjoy watching when away from home. A bit glitchy sometimes, but overall, super! Update 2/27/18: on iPad mini, I'm unable to find my tv provider Spectrum, so cannot watch. Not sure what happened. Tried deleting app and downloading again, no luck. Sad :( 2nd Update 3/3/18: Sorry, I found "Charter Spectrum"; app works well now. Didn't know that was their new name.
  • An idiot developed this 1/5

    By Alexwatlington
    I’ve never seen an app that forgets your login info every time the way this one does. It rarely works, on Apple TV you can’t even write in your login info. It’s all hot garbage.
  • Worst App Ever 1/5

    By De'Sean James
    The worst app I’ve ever used
  • Love the college baseball 5/5

    By Rags14
    Tons of college baseball baseball to get the season going
  • Spectrum Communications 1/5

    By need some baseball
    Why is Spectrum Communications not listed as a provider?
  • Game On 5/5

    By MarPar62
    The ESPN app is game on! Crisp and clear, great sound! Watch it on the go, great!
  • Null 1/5

    By Got stuck wit nothing
    Can’t watch anything. No matter what I pick it says unable to play video null. Disappointed.
  • Won’t connect to my provider! 1/5

    By Diggityisrad
    This app is completely worthless until they fix it. What good is it if it requires me to sign into my provider but then won’t connect!?
  • Shameful 1/5

    By AndresV.
    Funny how illegitimate streams work better than straight from the source. It should not be that way!!!
  • Glitchy 1/5

    By Naps13
    This app provides great programming on the go but unfortunately it doesn’t function effectively. It’s very glitchy. It continuously drops streaming, which can be annoying when your watching a game live. One second I’m connected then the next it’s dropped then I have to click the program again missing key plays to the game. Word of advise spend some money on your tech staff. It’s important in this day and age. Espn is still light years behind in streaming technology. I hope they resolve these issues soon since there programming content is great but only if I’m able to watch it effectively.
  • It worked great 2/5

    By Needs update to fix this
    It worked great until I got a new iPad and I would not sign in with spectrum. I go to chose a provider and it goes to the virizion FiOS sign in its so bad on this aspect.
  • App seriously needs a fresh look 1/5

    By Racer1214500
    This app feels like it was developed in 2005. ESPN needs to get with the times. They’ve got nothing on NBC Sports.
  • Works great on IPhone 4/5

    By Martin B-26
    Have watched football on both IPhone and IPad. No real problems on either. Have 4g Verizon on IPhone and high speed internet when using the IPad. I love the replay coverage. I don't miss games I really want to see!
