App needs update 2/5
Good app that needs an update for iOS 12 and the latest iPhone like XS Max with the bigger screen.
Used to work great, now if you are lucky enough to get signed in the quality is horrible and it constantly freezes. They haven’t updated the app in over a year and it shows...
Fire Booger McFarland 1/5
Want to earn stars? Take McFarland off Monday Night Football,
If you like buffering, this app is for you 1/5
Awful app 1/5
It keeps popping up for me to rate it even though I have in app reviews turned off.
app keeps freezing and closing out 2/5
Great app when it’s working, I’ve have to keep deleting and re-installing though because I’ll try to open it and it’ll stall out and close
The app doesn’t work!!!!!!! Always telling me the channel isn’t part of my package when it is!!!!!!!! I’d give this app a ZERO if I could!
Not for us 1/5
I should have listened to other reviewers. This APP is terrible. Tried to watch WVU game yesterday and it started out fine. Then by 2nd quarter we got so frustrated almost gave up. But because we love our WVU Mountaineers we endured it. Kept freezing up. And then it would be fine. Then freezes up again. Wow! Talk about frustrating and angry! Deleting this one from phone.
Pretty decent 3/5
I like the WatchESPN app and the features that it comes with.I most say the reason I didn’t rate it higher is because you have to pay an additional cost for ESPN + to see Serie A games like Juventus for example to see Cristiano Ronaldo.
Not updated 1/5
Not updated for iPhone XS max yet!!! Slacking! Most apps already updated
Horrible app 1/5
You would think with a billion dollar company, you go get a reliable app to watch sports on. This is the worst one I have out of all the tv apps I stream. Constantly freezes up, lags ect. Fix the problem already!!! I force close the app, restart and yet it still does not run like it should. Updates desperately needed for this and SOON!
By Chuck Brownly
Does not load anything! Do not use this trash!
Great app 5/5
It’s great when your not home to watch on your TV !
Doesn't work 1/5
Doesn't work half the time. Piece of trash
ESPN 3 is horrible. It’s not allowing me to watch the game. It has its experiencing technical difficulties.
Does not work on iPad while out of the USA 1/5
I’m sitting here in Germany trying to watch my alma mater play, but the watch espn app refuses to work on my iPhone on a cell network or my iPad on a WiFi network. Why even release and advertise a product that doesn’t work in the only situation you need it to?
Have had no problems. About 30 second delay from tv broadcast. No big deal.
No chromecast support 1/5
They REMOVED Chromecast support. These companies are INTENTIONALLY making their product worse so they can nickel and dime their customers.
GOODBYE FOREVER ESPN
OK, But Needs Vast Improvement 2/5
This is an ok app, I use it infrequently, and then only during football season. I’m on an iPhone X, but the app seems to be stuck with iPhone 4. ESPN needs to update the UI to fit modern phones. The streaming is ok, but not as good as my Apple TV. This app needs a serious overhaul to compete with something like the FoxSports Now app.
Not worth the effort to get it to work
Great concept but totally unable to rely on it working so if you really want to watch the game you need to arrange another way to do it
Violates the basic rule of under promise and over deliver
Send the nerds back to work on this one
The best 5/5
Crap app 1/5
Can no longer view content. It says “needs to reauthenticate” every time I open it, even after I sign out and back in.
Worst streaming app that I have. 1/5
Between about a dozen streaming cable apps I use, this one is undoubtedly the worst, all day, every day.
Support IPhone X 3/5
Needs to support full screen on IPhone X. Makes the experience awful when you can only utilize half the phone screen.
Bad app 1/5
Still can’t access favorite sports. Keep getting “unable to play...” when replaying and airplay. Lousy search function. Only loads a few past events at a time.
Needs a lot of work 1/5
By The Real Sammy Q
Works well if you’re trying to watch soccer, cricket, or women’s basketball... But good luck if you’re trying to watch Monday Night Football. I wouldn’t invite the boys over if you plan on watching the big game on this app; issues whenever you try to stream prime time games—app crashes, lagging, etc.
Crashing during Monday Night Football 1/5
Super frustrating. Watching Monday Night Football and it keeps crashing.
I used to love this app. This app use to allow cable users to sign into their service accounts and view the content but now it’s restricted. I’m disappointed. As a former pro athlete and current football fanatic I’m appalled.
Still no iphone x support??? 1/5
Its been a year since the phone came out. What kind of app still doesnt support the iphone x screen size at this point? TRASH.
Used to be a good app 1/5
Now it is useless. Can’t authenticate with my provider - “..not authorized..”, or just “..unable at this time..”!
Doesn’t play video 1/5
Used to work, now won’t play video. Also can’t watch on Mac with either chrome or safari, just keeps asking me to login with my TV provider over and over. ESPN is falling fast in every possible way.
Trash. When this app is actually working and will let stream using you tv account it passable at best. Too bad not even that will happen 99.9% of the time.
By Denny 205
continually crashes and have to re-download it to get it to load. sometimes have to do this 3x. so annoying!!
Idk if I’ve ever written a review, but felt compelled as the last 3 weeks trying to get the app to work on my phone I’ve gotten more error messages than plays I’ve been able to watch. Very frustrating, coming from the “world wide leader” 👎🏻.
‘This app does not let me watch espn because my server is not on their list. Spectrum is the server that I use. This app is useless to me
Such a jumpy picture. 1/5
Whenever we use this app, the video eventually degrades to a jumpy video. We watch sports on multiple devices and have watched it in four different states from west, Midwest and east coast but we always get a jumpy video. Makes us sea sick to watch our games. Please please address ESPN.
Won’t let me watch what I want. If it’s on ESPN, I should be able to watch it.
Yeah.... no! 1/5
Do you love sports??? Well ESPN has it all! And this APP doesn’t. It’s by far a failure. Don’t bother with this download as it doesn’t work at all.
iPhone X full screen 1/5
It is extremely annoying that the app is not optimized for the iPhone X. It doesn’t take up the entire screen, so there are huge black bands and the top and bottom of the screen. Really aggravating and needs to be fixed. The iPhone X has been out a year now, no excuse for this!!
Way behind the other sports streaming apps 1/5
I’m sure I’m not the first to use this word - frustrating.
It’s slow, glitchy, and just overall a bad user interface. Nothing about this app makes me WANT to use it. Rather I only use it once and a blue moon for a game that I have to use it for. ESPN has just fallen so far behind nbcsports and foxsports imo.
Poor Disney 1/5
Can’t watch smooth video for more than a minute. UI is ten years old. Sad times when Disney can’t afford quality development.
Trash App 1/5
You can’t stream to watch live tv at all with this app. It freezes every 20 seconds. No it’s not my internet - I’ve tried all over the place and have the same issues when others try too.
You’d think they’d have a decent app with all the money they have - but it’s just a horrible piece of garbage.
CRASH CRASH CRASH 1/5
This app is terrible. Crashes alllll the time!!! I have to click on the app about 20 times before it will actually open. Then it will just sit an buffer once it’s open. Oh, and crash a couple more time. HORRIBLE
Quality is awful. Looks like I’m watching games as Stevie Wonder smh.
Can’t stream big games 1/5
For the past several years when I have tried to stream any big games the app either constantly buffers or gives an error message and won’t play the game at all. Terrible app.
It’s obvious why ESPN is struggling 1/5
ESPN - If you want your market share back, fix your apps and your broadcasts. “An error occurred” is not acceptable for paying customers that pay for subscriptions to watch your broadcasts!
I enjoy watching football on the app. I do however feel it is silly to have blackout areas for games. If you are going to go you will go. Blackouts are not going to change your mind one way or the other.
Watchespn. Watching not included. 1/5
Nothing like having to rely on the streaming services and then not being able to actually watch the games. I had to spend the entire time seeing errors, unable to play-null. Good job ESPN...
Finally had a chance to use the Watch ESPN app for a college football game and it was horrible. Couldn’t connect, froze up, kept telling me game had not started yet even though it kicked off 30 min prior. Missed entire 1st qtr before anything shows up and then it was intermittent. DON’T DEPEND ON THIS APP FOR WATCHING YOUR TEAM!!!
