    App works great, ESPN leaves little to be desired as usual. Only issue, I have had to Uninstall/reinstall this app 4 or 5 times over the past few years for some reason. Every once in a while it just doesn't work right, such as my espn+ videos not working, saying "this video could not be played for some reason" (not an exact quote).

    Good app, my only complaint is that you constantly post twitter video links in your articles, which absolutely never work when accessing the article through the app. Surely developers are aware of this, so I can't understand why it hasn't been fixed, for at minimum 6 months now

  • Slow and disappointing Aug 8, 2018

    By Just trying to help people
    So far, this app has been great, but there are a few things that make me rate less than a 5 or 4. I primarily use this app for baseball, as football season hasn't started. I just installed this app it to see if it was better that other baseball viewing apps I own. So far, the interface is great and well designed, but the app is SLOW! It takes a long time to start up, and it has a hard time with simple actions in general such as clicking on the details or score of a game. So far, I have had no problem with the live TV viewing aspect of it, but it should be noted that I haven't used it much as I am at home with my TV. The main thing that annoys me the most is that when I click on a player up at bat in the app, it brings me to a glitched version of the app’s website. You are unable to scroll, and have to use a drop down menu to continue on to the stats. Then when you finally get the stats, there is barely anything! In other apps, I can click on the player an instantly get an in-app page of TONS of stats, just like it should be! ESPN, fix this please!

    App did not work at all. Wouldn't launch. After troubleshooting on my own I called support. Nice and patient service person. After an hour all was restored and working. Missed the entire game though.

    ESPN the network and the app are great. The app is everything I could ever ask for. The only problem I have is how Steven A Smith has a job there. First because of his remarks against women and then his flip flopping of opinions. He legitimately has no idea what’s going on but runs his mouth then apologizes later that he got it wrong. If this is all it takes to be a ESPN analyst and make 10 million a year then sign me up. I can say .ex:“ the Celtics are out of this series( cause Gianiss had a good game and tied the series.) and there is no coming back. If that’s all it takes is to pick a side then another and offer no insight then really my 6 yo could put Steven A out of s job. Congratulations ESPN on throwing money at a horrible analyst and sexist.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 sarcastic stars

    Pretty pointless app unless ESPN is part of your cable package. I subscribed to the Disney+ bundle that includes ESPN+, because I don't have cable at all, and wanted to watch football. Well everytime I try to watch a game I just get a message saying "this channel is not included in your cable package." So if you're trying to cut cable, don't even bother with ESPN+, it's not an alternative option.

  • This WAS my favorite app Jan 10, 2021

    By Jimi-Thang
    Up until a couple of months ago I used this app daily on my iPhone. I loved being able to watch my favorite shows live or on replay at the office. I also enjoyed being able to watch live sporting events when traveling for work. Then one day I couldn’t watch anything on my iPhone anymore. Either I get an error message saying “something went wrong, please try again later” or just a spinning wheel that goes for awhile before timing out. The app for my Roku still works fine but by I have very little free time on weekdays it’s almost pointless. The whole reason I got the app was so I could catch Get Up and a few other shows away from home, so I could “watch from anywhere” like their commercials always say. I had hoped that their recent update would fix the problem but no such luck. Oh, and one last thing, I’ve tried chatting with support twice. The first time nobody ever contacted me like they said they would and the second time they asked a few questions and then just stopped, never to be heard from again. I tried all of the things they asked (power cycling my iPhone, uninstalling the app and then downloading it again, etc. Nothing worked and I am beyond disgusted at this point. I still watch ESPN at home and still love the shows I like, it’s just too bad I don’t get to watch nearly as often as I used too.... It used to be a 5 star rating, now not so much.

  • Poor App, difficult to connect/watch Jan 4, 2020

    By Shahryar1983
    I honestly have difficulty deciding which is worse, the ESPN app or the website, as far as being able to view live games. Typically, I have to log in and out 5-10 times and independently log in to my cable provider 5-10 times each time I want to stream live games or replays. It’s quite amazing how many times you can be told that your cable subscription does not cover the live stream only to find out, on the 10th attempt, that it does. Considering it’s listed as one of the supported cable subscriptions, I’m guessing the 10th time is accurate. I have considered the possibility that it’s related to my cable provider, but since I experience the same issues with my ESPN+ subscription without going through my cable provider, I’m guessing it’s not. Of note, ESPN+ won’t be renewed. I remember watching ESPN when I was young and have continued to do so as I approach middle age, but the difficulty in accessing programming with more modern technology is quite frustrating and makes me want to find another avenue to watch my football, baseball, etc. Disney, if you’re reading this, you could really help improve the quality by fixing some of these issues before a mass exodus of subscribers who watch on mobile devices or their computers.

    This app doesn't work. I pay every month and can't watch any game. Won't even load. Fix it. All I get is "there was an error that prevented this app from working" and this happens on old and new devices..update: worked for about 25 min after last update but now all I get is a loading screen. Still not able to watch anything.

    I honestly have no idea how a company with as much money as this has such an awful app. It’s slow, bordering on unresponsive sometimes. My phone is flaming hot after a few minutes of use on the app, although that could just be my phone and not the app. I get a lot of alerts on from ESPN, but when I click on them, it’s about a 50/50 shot of whether or not I get to see what I clicked. Ads freeze all the time, keeping me from getting to a video I click on. Videos also typically start at about 4 pixels on the screen and get marginally better as the video goes on, no matter if I’m connected to my very good WiFi or my cellular data. The amount of content is also a little subpar. When you look at an app like Bleacher Report that produces an insane amount of well-done and free content on an app that actually works, the paywall of ESPN+ is just silly. Streaming from the app is also nearly impossible for me. But the website is just as bad. The content that I actually get to see is usually pretty good stuff, making it a two star rating instead of a one star. Considering the money ESPN and Disney have, they should be embarrassed about the quality of their app and their website.

    Notifications always keeping me up to speed on what's happening. I'm sure I speak for many, should include live streaming of other sports with ESPN+ subscription. Would give 5 stars, but that is lacking.

    Meh. Not impressed with this app. No split screen functionality or timeline metadata during the game. Also a lot of commercials when trying to watch highlights. Remind me why in paying to see ads?

    The notifications are annoying. There will be a title to an article. You click on it. It opens the app but not to the article and then you can't find the article on app.

  • Could be great, but won’t save your place!! Dec 12, 2019

    By krokkta
    I recently subscribed because of the Disney bundle and there are a lot of things I really am liking about ESPN +. I love all the old programming like all the archived Indy 500 races and Mohamed Ali fights. I also really like all the ESPN original programming like Payton’s places and being able to access all of the 30 for 30 episodes. That for me is probably one of the best things about the subscription. My frustration comes because a lot of those shows are long and I don’t watch them in one sitting You would think that there would be a ‘continue watching’ feature like every other paid, streaming subscription but there isn’t. I contacted ESPN and was told to just “remember where you were.” That seems so silly and unnecessary. Please ESPN, add a ‘continue watching’ feature and I will be a 5 star happy customer. As it is right now I have to scroll back through programming, find the show I was watching, click on it, and try to remember where I was and start fast forwarding which is a huge pain if your like me and watch different shows depending on the mood you are in.

  • Everything Except Streaming is Great May 16, 2018

    By Bearsman34
    ESPN, I have been all ESPN ever since I was old enough to care about sports. The writing and reporting is phenomenal, and I love to be the one in my family to break the biggest sports news. The app is great with notifications on your favorite teams and leagues as well as breaking sports news. The radio streaming and podcasts are great especially my favorites (Lebatard Show, Golic and Wingo, and 30 for 30). I will continue to use this app for all of those reasons. I do however wish you guys had full game highlights online, but I digress. The only bad thing I have to say is how god awful the streaming is. Tried to watch the ECF between cavs and Celtics and it lagged throughout the entire game when casting it to my chrome cast. It did the same just trying to watch on my phone and I have gigabit internet. I don’t know why that has always been an issue for ESPN. It has sucked since the first release of WatchESPN. PLEASE FIX THIS!!!! I’m begging you because the wife kicks me out of our tv room when I’m trying to watch the games! Thank you ESPN, and keep up the good work!

  • Suggestions and complaints Nov 1, 2018

    By Andrew Mollenauer
    This is a great app. I am, however, disappointed in a few key things. 1. I had my favorite teams selected in “favorites,” and one day I opened the app only to find that there was no “favorites” setting visible, and that my favorite teams scores notifications were turned off even though I never turned them off. 2. I’ve said this in previous reviews, and I’ll say it again; I really really wish you’d put AHL hockey in here. The AHL is a minor league, but it’s got a strong enough following, and I absolutely love it, and I’d love to be able to more easily access the scores/news/stats for it here as opposed to having to go to the AHL website every time. 3. NCAA hockey, both men’s and women’s, are listed as sports on here, but whenever I check I never see them updated or covered as much as the games are happening. For example, I’m a Penn State fan, and I never see the scores for my school. Hockey is big, as is college hockey, so this is disappointing and surprising to me. Thank you for your time, and I sincerely hope that my suggestions will be taken into consideration.

    Was good until last update and now the ESPN plus section doesn't work and I pay monthly for the service. If this is not fixed soon you will lose more than just my service there will be hundreds of thousands. You can not put a product out and charge everyone and we get none of the services in which we ate paying for.
