Customer Reviews


While the app is generally good, it becomes extremely frustrating when watching a close game which extends into the time slotted for the next scheduled program because it goes blank, buffers and then tries to reconnect. Under Murphy's Law, this will happen right at the moment of a very big play in a very big match so by the time it reconnects, you've missed 30-40 secs of crucial action. All you get is the reaction of the crowd screaming so you have to look for a replay to know which play took place. Please ESPN, stop it. Once I'm connected, let me watch the programming without the need to "buffer" into the next scheduled program. Because it happens at the worst moment possible.


In this day of technology, I should not have to pay exorbitant fees for nonsense I do not watch, just to have access to live streaming (or even delayed) programming. I would pay a-la-cart, or monthly for the programming I ACTUALLY WATCH. That said, the app is a great addition to the sports menu. As a tennis fan, espn3 is a great option to have access to. I wonder which network will be the first hero to cut ties w/rip-off providers & allow online access at an affordable, reasonable price so you can pay for what you actually watch? I will $upport $such bravery.

One of the best sports app is not the best

I think it is one of the best sports streaming live events, if not the best. For starters, the connection is quite good. It doesn't lag or drop. Also, it doesn't have annoying commercials when you first click on an event, like other apps have, the games come on instantly without having to wait. Even when I don't have wifi, and I'm using 4G or LTE the video quality is very good. Very pleased with the app
