very convenient app

love this app and opportunity i am afforded to watch a game while on the train (to see another game), or see something live when i am not home (like ncaa div I soccer tournament). even though screen is small, like with my iphone, the clarity is very good. feel like i am in a jetson's cartoon from the future...watching the tv from my phone. just need to get a "smart-watch" so i can be george jetson and watch tv while working at spacely enterprises....the future is now. this app also was great to have while watching men's world cup this past summer. i was in the hospital following surgery, and the games were not shown on the hospital cable network, so i could watch the games in my room. great convenience when you want to see something live. app is very easy to use, but could use a "remember me" selection so that you have the option of hooking back up with your same network/password configuration.

App keeps crashing when live streaming.

Whenever using the WatchESPN app on either an iPhone or AppleTV an error message appears about 10 or 15 minutes in to the program.
This does not appear to be an Internet connection problem because all other apps stream content without interruption and the ESPN website will live stream an event without crashing, so it is definitely something wrong within the app. Not sure if this is just for Apple products or if it happens on other platforms as well.
You can watch the video clips they have up just fine, but if you are looking to actually watch ESPN through this app (like the name suggests) then you might want to wait to see if this problem gets fixed in a future update (previous versions of this app did not have this problem, it is a recent phenomenon within the last couple months), but in its current for the app is more of a frustration when you are trying to catch a game you really wanted to see.


Every day I check.....wishing.....hoping.....only to have my hopes crushed.....No, DirecTv STILL has not supported WatchESPN.....

I've reviewed this several times now, to no avail.....DirecTv needs to support this app.....EVERYBODY else has. Nobody else is complaining about higher bills as a result, or whatever. Support the WatchESPN app, DirecTv!!!!! Or better yet, just do the obvious thing, and let us watch whatever is on TV on our phone, like DISH. Come on, DirecTv, quit being behind everybody else on this!

I keep checking every new calendar period-month, year-to see if DirecTv has finally supported this app. Come on guys! You know people aren't likely to switch providers based on something like this, but you have to know that when every other provider supports this app, that you are actually making your product less attractive, not the opposite because of some supposed savings in rates. No other carriers seem to have a problem with that! COME ON, GUYS!
