*Due to contractual limitations with certain content, especially
play-by-play broadcasts, there are times when the schedule that's on-air
won't match the schedule that's online. While we make every effort to update
the schedule, occasionally the nature of play-by-play broadcasting limits
our ability to accurately present the latest schedule (ie., rain delays,
last minute schedule changes). We apologize for any inconvenience this
causes. If you have specific schedule questions, please contact the station

What's New in Version 4.7.2
Functional to Dysfunctional, in One Disingenuous Update
The "bug fixes" update did only one thing: disable pause and seeking. I see your thinking here, ESPN. I am going to listen non-stop to the onslaught of "Have you tried Five Hour Energy lately" ads and repetitious updates to hear a shorter amount of sports talk. But you outthought yourself on this one, boys. I can't listen continuously, even if I wanted to. Why? I only listen to sports talk at work, and it must be piecemeal by necessity. However... without the ability to pause then resume where I left off, it's impossible to catch entire segment or guest. I pass, ESPN. The old app (with three hour rewind capability!) was the reason why I started listening to ESPN some at work. Going to only one hour rewind was a bad move for my listening restrictions, but total disabling is a deal breaker. And it's too bad since I like the ESPN afternoon lineup Rusillo and Lebatard.
Sound still cuts in and out
Your most recent update fixed the skipping problem for about four days but now we are right back to having sound go in and out. So close to full functionality! I use this app for four to five hours Monday through Friday and just let it play so disabling the functions others have mentioned doesn't affect me personally but that sounds like a feature you should have re-thought removing. I still cannot use the app because of the sound cutting in and out the entire time. It's like listening to a skipping record. Back to listening to news out of Portland Oregon even though I'm in New York.
Buggy and all around horrible app
I still use this app pretty much every day, but I also use XFinity every day, so don't take that as a ringing endorsement. It crashes regularly, you cannot change the order of shows/podcasts you download, and as of the newest update you cannot rewind live radio. They also will reply to complaints saying that they're looking into the issue, and then do nothing. I brought the first two above issues up about 2.5 years ago. I am still stuck using the piece of junk app because I like to listen to one of the radio shows. If you can get the content elsewhere, I'd strongly recommend it
