Customer Reviews

Freeze! Crash! Can't play video :(

This app should be improved after months of user reviews letting developers know the bugs that need fixing, but it's 2017 and same old, same old. Every time I use the app to replay a tennis match, the error "Cannot play video" inevitably appears when I move the bar to advance the video or accidentally escape from the video. I have to completely close the app and start over from the beginning of the video. Otherwise, the video freezes, the app crashes and I have to close the app and re-open it. Why do we have to endure this antiquated app for another year? What is new in 2017? I can't play any replay videos for the Australian Open.

The app is Ok

The app is ok .. I don't like the fact that I can't watch certain games due to them being shown on ESPN at the time .. If I were sitting in front of my TV I wouldn't need the app .. My wife officiates women's college basketball . Therefore I catch games in between her games or while we are on the road . However most of the games are blacked out due to them being shown on the four letter network at the time . To me that's not customer service .. Evidently I have a cable provider so there shouldn't be an issue with watching any game I want to watch on my electronic devices .. When it will allow me to watch a game it works very well ..

Always on time

I'm always on the run with work and daddy life and miss games I want to watch but ESPN has made it very easy to watch my favorite shows in the morning and games. I did have to manage 2 other unnamed apps along with my cable subscription I can watch all sports games and shows. ESPN is my most watched and used app. At times it freezes or slow but it's probably because the entire planet is on it too.
