Like to "watch ESPN"
It was a friend of mine who pointed out that if I had DirecTV I could also have this app on my cellphone. The ability to view live video is wonderful since it's a technological advance I never expected. And it comes at no extra cost. The app is so intuitively set out. I'm no genius but even I could see how easy it is to see at any time of the day or night what live broadcasts are available to view. And that's just page one of the app. On succeeding pages one can see what shows are upcoming. One can also get shows that are being re-aired. You can also check for what individual sports are or will be available. So what's to lose? Install the app and have some free entertainment.
Does its job, most of the time
This app is helpful if you're the only sports fan in your household. It works well on a Google Chromecast. It's also nice when your team is playing on ESPN3 and you can't find it on a local channel. However, there are some annoying things about this and what ESPN has done. First of all, you get the same 3 ads during commercial breaks whenever you watch any of the channels. The worst part of this app, are the local listings/blackouts. I live on the east coast and am a big ACC football/basketball fan, and often times these games (unless broadcasted on ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU) will be blacked out, even though it says they're available to stream on ESPN3. Why would you blackout a game in an area where 95% of your target audience resides? Yeah, annoying. All in all, a good app but ESPN could make some adjustments.
Only really use it for tennis, but I love it for that. I gave it 5 stars last time, but this time only 4 because I've had a few occasions lately where I've gotten the "Your event will begin in a few moments" screen, but when I check my other sports app I can see that the match actually IS being played, and I can watch the score change. All the while the watch ESPN app is telling me it hasn't started. I never really had that experience before a month or two ago when it started to happen daily. It seemed every match I really wanted to see, that would happen. It was pretty frustrating. It had to have been some kind of glitch. Hopefully they fix or fixed it. Then it'll get 5 stars again.
