  • App for Apple TV is horrible Dec 29, 2020

    By Pete Rose's butler
    I gave this two stars simply because it offers live sports which is appreciated. However, on average, the app loses connection every 10 to 15 minutes or will automatically close. There are times where it might not close out for an entire half and I just assume that’s the sports gods doing me a solid. This is frustrating on many accounts but the obvious one being when it happens at the 2 minute warning in 4th quarter or 1 out in the bottom of the 9th. On multiple occasions I have missed the end of the game. I have restarted Apple TV multiple times, have re-installed the app itself as well. Of the apps I have connected to my Apple TV this is the only one that has this issue. I have read on many forums that I am not the only person having this issue which makes me wonder why it is still happening...after years of use. Edit: 1 star because I can’t rate it any lower. Now a new issue has come up. The commentators lag but simultaneously repeat what they just said which leads to both talking at the same time - impossible to hear what’s happening. Once again requires a restart. Also, the Oklahoma State and Miami bowl game froze while writing this...

  • I love ESPN but...4 sarcastic stars May 2, 2019

    By Luke. Me. Me
    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

  • 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.

  • Delay of game.... 5 yd penalty on ESPN+.... Jan 19, 2020

    By cowboy redskin fan 2018
    I would say once you actually get the ESPN+ app installed it works pretty well on Roku and is easy to navigate with the remote......the big problem is it literally takes a PhD and engineering degree to get the app installed on a non QLED TV which many do not have esp if you’ve purchased a tv prior to 2017.....ESPN also failed to offer a heads up on this so if you have an older tv be prepared for a long set up process.....after about 8 hours and a trip to the store to purchase said Roku device we hunkered down to watch Connor v cowboy....sad to say 40 secs was a huge letdown but it looks like the UFC lineup In coming months looks promising....One other note....the sound was on a 10-15 sec delay which was annoying and unacceptable...I’m wondering if anyone else had this issue....I did appreciate the discounted price for the fight so overall some good and some bad points...work on that streaming being in sync and we’ll be back with another review after the next fight....GO NINERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    App is horrible and needs update. Videos don't load, continually lag, sound plays during highlight clips, but screen stays black due to no video. Also, widget never works for score updates, and when you try to flip thru scores on widget, it never works it usually freezes on last team looked at, has been like this for over a year. You'd think a multibillion dollar company would have a top rated, and smooth running app... guess not. Not surprised

They told me they would give a refund within 10 to 15 business days.

  • 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.

  • UFC Content... Jun 18, 2019

    By BrokenCylon
    Update: Yay!!! Y’all fixed it, Tysm Devs, if you’re going to change how the content is displayed you should put that in the update notes, not just say that you’ve added an In-App ppv feature & nothing else but bug squashing... I can’t find any of the Greatest (KO’s, Submissions, Rivalries, etc...) videos (if they’re even on there anymore) w/how y’all have changed the landscape, there is no longer a “See All” tappable button to the right of the group heading so you can browse content, you just have to scroll from the right & read each individual title that way until it eventually ends & it seams like they’re not even in there...& as for the group headings that can be scrolled all there is now is Upcoming, Related & On-Demand, but again, no tappable “See All” button to browse anything else that was just there a few weeks ago.?

  • New great features, but extremely slow Aug 6, 2018

    By GoMocs86
    Less than a week after updating with most recent update, the ‘Scores’ tab no longer worked. It simply never opened. I reinstalled the app a couple of times and then just ignored it. After a while of dealing with it, I reached out to ESPN support and they said that there wasn’t anything they could do and I needed to reach out to Apple, which is basically a waste of Apple’s time. How could it be Apple’s fault that ESPN’s app no longer works properly when it worked perfectly fine prior to the robust newest update? I’m a huge fan of ESPN and their variety of networks and viewing options, but I just want an app that will work. (I would have given the app 5 stars prior to most recent update).

    This is one of my most used apps. I wish that when I get a notification and click on it to open that notification that it will actually play that particular thread smoother. Other than that I love it. Update: the app has gotten slow...really slow. And glitchy. It takes almost a minute sometimes longer for it to open from a notification. Watching a game is null and void now unless I want to watch it in Spanish lol 🤦🏾‍♂️. Every time it says that I can’t watch it and to call my service provider. I call AT&T and they said that everything checks out on their end. Please fix this?? Baseball season is already here and football season will be coming next and I’d like to be able to watch the games like I used to be able to.

  • Unwanted alerts Nov 10, 2018

    By chepler84
    This is everything I want in my sports app. I honestly love it. There is one exception. I don’t know if it’s from app updates or what exactly, but the app continually turns on “Breaking News” alerts. I go to the app settings and turn them off, then sure enough a day or two later they’re turned back on. I take my alerts and notifications on my phone seriously and and very deliberate about what I’ll allow to grab my attention. I like getting updates on my teams, but I absolutely do not want breaking news from espn. Most of it is completely irrelevant to me. It’s causing me to consider turning off notifications from the app altogether and going elsewhere for the updates I want. Please, please stop turning on breaking news alerts!

  • Decent app, crashing issues Oct 7, 2018

    By DanielManning
    At the time of this review, the app is having major crashing problems. It won’t stay open for more than a few seconds. I didn’t update it, and I’m on the same WiFi I always am, so no idea what’s going on. I’d submit feedback about it, but- you can probably figure out why I’m here instead. When it’s working, the only complaint I have is that you can’t add/remove sports or leagues from the main feed. I literally could not care any less about baseball, but during the playoffs that takes up a lot of the feed. Otherwise it’s solid. Probably the best thing about the app is the 3 minute SVP app segment they upload every morning. Blurbs about the biggest highlights in a more casual format. Great addition.

  • 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!

  • Doesn’t really support personalization Aug 9, 2020

    By madmick2002
    I’ve been using it for many years but it refuses to care about my interests, which through my interactions should be very obvious. They always push their own preferred content to the top. For example, I understand there is a PGA championship going on but I NEVER, ever once clicked on a golf story, but that’s what they’re pushing to the top these days. I’m the kind of fan that follow teams, not individual players, but this app is constantly showing a section to recommend I follow individuals, and the “Recommended for You” choices are a million miles away from anything I show interest in - nobody from the teams or sports I follow, rather just the players in pop culture or who have big contracts. Well, what about the teams I do follow, can I just get a quick glance at what they’re doing? Not really, I have to navigate around and scroll until I can finally find the content I really care about. There’s no attempt to really learn my preferences and show what I want. There isn’t even an option to pay for personalized content or to remove ads. This ESPN app really appears to be about promoting content, advertisements and agendas and we sports fans just have to deal with it. Having said this, once you get to the content you want, there really isn’t a better sports app out there - again that’s why I deal with all the other baggage that comes with it. Oh, and it can be pretty laggy with scores and updates.

  • Unwanted notifications Mar 31, 2021

    By Chelseafcforlife
    App does fine however I get notifications for things I don't want. It's March madness. For me, not interested. But do I know how all the games went? Of course! ESPN let me know - whether I wanted to or not. I have tailored the notifications in the settings 20 times - I only want to be notified about my teams / sports. I have breaking news turned off, I have instant awesome off, I have gambling off, I have ESPN+ editors pick off and product updates and offers off. Yet, somehow, I get notifications for things I don't care about. Why is it this way? I like knowing when 1 of the 4 teams I follow play or there's news about those teams, but i don't want anything else. But apparently it's not my choice? I may seek alternatives to this app that don't send me notifications deemed important to the app and not the user. I could turn notifications off entirely but that's not the point. I want what I want and nothing else and that isn't happening.

  • How? Apr 28, 2020

    By tate8525
    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.

  • No Reason They Cant Do Better Feb 2, 2021

    By ndjeh Xs jend in jehdhesjjdhd
    I read the top review that is two years old and it echos my feelings for the most part. The app is slow, unreliable, and the interface doesn’t seem like it’s changed since I first downloaded it to my phone 8 years ago. I love when I get a notification that I actually have some interest in and tapping it to be take to the app to stare at a black screen for eternity because it NEVER loads. Then when you reopen the app to try and find the article it’s like it never existed. Good luck trying to find any specific article or video you’re looking for. You only get to see what ESPN wants you to see. I don’t watch UFC or MMA so why do they keep sending me notifications for it? The best part is when you watch a video and the 45 second ad plays perfectly then the actual video doesn’t load and you have to reload the app and watch the ad again. Then the video ends and it goes straight into another ad before you can rewind it to watch the 5 second highlight again. Soooo bad and they don’t have to improve because there is no real competition. Super sad they are complacent

  • 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.
