What's New in Version 1.9.7
Bug Fixes and Performance Improvements
THIS APP IS OUTSTANDING!
Love this app! I am able to watch so many of my alma mater's sporting events when I'm not near a TV or if it's not available in my area. All this without having to pay extra for a streaming service as I've already paid through my internet / cable provider. It's also easy to find the events by scrolling through the sports listings. It was not always so user-friendly, and I did have trouble at first with my internet provider account, but it was worth the trouble-shooting and works really well now. Be advised though, you do have to set up an online account with your internet / cable provider in order to access.
"Streaming [and stuttering] on the ESPN app"
Enough has been said about the abundance of ads in this app. I want to focus on another perhaps bigger problem--the freezing and stuttering of the streaming broadcast.
At crucial times--like just before a field goal attempt or just before a receiver catches a long pass--the video will stutter, or even worse, freeze altogether. You won't know, as you wait for it to resume, if it will be seconds or minutes, or if you'll have to refresh or even RESTART the app.
I've been using this app for three years now. At first I thought the streaming difficulties were due to the speed of my home Internet connection; but I've also accessed it in cafes and hotel rooms, with a mix of cable, DSL, wired Internet and wireless networks; with a smartphone, tablet, PC and top-of-the-line MacBook Pro. There's little difference in any environment.
Other networks/apps can stream without these problems--why not "The Worldwide Leader In Sports"?
Use this App with AppleTV on a Samsung 60" TV to watch sports. When the app is started and airplay is used the picture looks analog for 3-5 seconds until the buffer fills and then is very sharp. The only problem I've encountered is a signal loss if my iPad goes to sleep over time or I have closed the cover so disable sleep mode and do not close the cover so you will not encounter the problem.
Also use this on the road as well. While on the road you may run into picture freeze depending on the quality of WIFI connection.
