  • Half great, half brutal


    By kcebttocs
    The streaming availability is fantastic. The amount of sports and games that this app has made available is just amazing. The streaming itself is okay. The quality of the games that are only streamed is very obviously and significantly worse than watching tv, which can be annoying. The camera work is far worse, the announcers are worse, there are fewer and worse graphics. The biggest problem with the app itself is the functionality and ease of use. It’s god awful. If you aren’t looking for the exact sport ESPN is trying to shove down your throat at that particular moment, it can take forever to find it. I’ve had the app for about a year and a half and I still have no idea how to find scores I’m looking for. If I just want to see scores and I’m not looking for NBA, NFL, or MLB scores, i have to constantly search through multiple menus and links to finally find what I’m looking for. And the whole time I see the same streams and leagues that ESPN just assumes I want to see. There is no customization and no recognization by the developers that people may want to see scores from leagues that aren’t the top leagues. And for what it’s worth, I do look up scores from the top 4 US sports daily, as well as many top soccer leagues and tennis tournaments. However, because this app is so difficult to use, I always use Yahoo, the MLB app, or flash score to find those scores instead of this one.
  • Poor App, difficult to connect/watch


    By Shahryar1983
    I honestly have difficulty deciding which is worse, the ESPN app or the website, as far as being able to view live games. Typically, I have to log in and out 5-10 times and independently log in to my cable provider 5-10 times each time I want to stream live games or replays. It’s quite amazing how many times you can be told that your cable subscription does not cover the live stream only to find out, on the 10th attempt, that it does. Considering it’s listed as one of the supported cable subscriptions, I’m guessing the 10th time is accurate. I have considered the possibility that it’s related to my cable provider, but since I experience the same issues with my ESPN+ subscription without going through my cable provider, I’m guessing it’s not. Of note, ESPN+ won’t be renewed. I remember watching ESPN when I was young and have continued to do so as I approach middle age, but the difficulty in accessing programming with more modern technology is quite frustrating and makes me want to find another avenue to watch my football, baseball, etc. Disney, if you’re reading this, you could really help improve the quality by fixing some of these issues before a mass exodus of subscribers who watch on mobile devices or their computers.
  • How?


    By tate8525
    I honestly have no idea how a company with as much money as this has such an awful app. It’s slow, bordering on unresponsive sometimes. My phone is flaming hot after a few minutes of use on the app, although that could just be my phone and not the app. I get a lot of alerts on from ESPN, but when I click on them, it’s about a 50/50 shot of whether or not I get to see what I clicked. Ads freeze all the time, keeping me from getting to a video I click on. Videos also typically start at about 4 pixels on the screen and get marginally better as the video goes on, no matter if I’m connected to my very good WiFi or my cellular data. The amount of content is also a little subpar. When you look at an app like Bleacher Report that produces an insane amount of well-done and free content on an app that actually works, the paywall of ESPN+ is just silly. Streaming from the app is also nearly impossible for me. But the website is just as bad. The content that I actually get to see is usually pretty good stuff, making it a two star rating instead of a one star. Considering the money ESPN and Disney have, they should be embarrassed about the quality of their app and their website.
  • Quality of Articles


    By USMarineKV
    I use the app for updates on scores mainly. The content in terms of writing, is often old, and without substance that would differentiate from merely the score. Redundancy seems to be the theme with ESPN. Let’s just write and speak the same things over and over regardless of the audience be it on an app or television. I miss Peter Gammons and his writing, but I will compliment Buster Olney for his piece on the Red Sox. ESPN needs more of that, and less of the redundancy. Return to the daily writing of yesteryear! Do some actually research and writing! There’re stories out there, and one of them is the return of “heat, cheese, hard-ball” through a proliferation of hard throwing relievers and starting pitching that has brought baseball back full circle. Spinning is still statistically important, but good old country hardball has returned! Here it is, hit it if you can is what every fan wants to see! Nathan Eavoldi showed the world that, of the many players in today’s game who have had Tommy John Surgery, a return to, and in some cases, new found power pitching is possible. So, country hardball, and Hope should be the theme to talk about in much more depth. Seek out minor leaguers, follow them as well, and shed light on what’s the biggest development in baseball today.
  • 0 stars if i could


    By Nathan Mumford
    this is hands down the WORST app i’ve ever had the misery of dealing with right along side with the UFC Fight Pass app. as a fight fan- losing connections risks missing a finish or knock out so i live in constant fear of even looking at the ESPN app once i’ve finally gotten it to connect to literally anything like a smart tv or chromcast and even on playstation. it’s awful. just tonight i’m in the middle of the main event fight when the stream begins to freeze and buff and drop quality for no good apparent reason whatsoever, so of course this means i have to deal with opening the app and reconnecting which is a good 5-10 minute process, no less than 15 seconds later the phone disconnects from the chromecast and begins playing on my phone screen revealing one of the fighters celebrating his victory that i had just missed seconds after the stream froze for no reason. this isn’t even the first time either i’m just finally so sick of it i refuse to stream any fight or sports event through their app or website. it’s no wonder illegal streams are dominating that portion of the industry, everyone’s tired of wasting their money on things that work better for free. 86’d this sh-t from my phone and all other devices. saves storage space.
  • Slow and disappointing


    By Just trying to help people
    So far, this app has been great, but there are a few things that make me rate less than a 5 or 4. I primarily use this app for baseball, as football season hasn't started. I just installed this app it to see if it was better that other baseball viewing apps I own. So far, the interface is great and well designed, but the app is SLOW! It takes a long time to start up, and it has a hard time with simple actions in general such as clicking on the details or score of a game. So far, I have had no problem with the live TV viewing aspect of it, but it should be noted that I haven't used it much as I am at home with my TV. The main thing that annoys me the most is that when I click on a player up at bat in the app, it brings me to a glitched version of the app’s website. You are unable to scroll, and have to use a drop down menu to continue on to the stats. Then when you finally get the stats, there is barely anything! In other apps, I can click on the player an instantly get an in-app page of TONS of stats, just like it should be! ESPN, fix this please!
  • It has been ruined


    By WesleyHansen
    The ESPN app has been my go-to app for sports news, scores, and recaps for a long time. But it has been ruined with the latest updates and redesigns. The app is almost unusable these days. Even when I am at home, on wifi, with nothing else running on my phone, the app is slow and crashes often. Don’t even think about using it at a game or anywhere your connection isn’t perfect. They have overburdened the app with video, ads, and cookies that slow it down to a crawl or even just prohibit you from even being able to open the app at all. Today I finally jumped onto the apps “text support” to see what I could do to improve my experience. Unfortunately the ESPN support rep proceeded to first accuse me of having a bad connection. I pointed out that he was incorrect and the rep then informed me that the app stores a lot of cookies and I should just delete the app and reinstall it. This is an annoying suggestion but I did it anyway. There was no improvement. And the tactless interaction with the rep definitely did not help the situation. The point is, you can do better. Go find another app that works and was designed by a company that still cares about their user base.
  • Could be great, but won’t save your place!!


    By krokkta
    I recently subscribed because of the Disney bundle and there are a lot of things I really am liking about ESPN +. I love all the old programming like all the archived Indy 500 races and Mohamed Ali fights. I also really like all the ESPN original programming like Payton’s places and being able to access all of the 30 for 30 episodes. That for me is probably one of the best things about the subscription. My frustration comes because a lot of those shows are long and I don’t watch them in one sitting You would think that there would be a ‘continue watching’ feature like every other paid, streaming subscription but there isn’t. I contacted ESPN and was told to just “remember where you were.” That seems so silly and unnecessary. Please ESPN, add a ‘continue watching’ feature and I will be a 5 star happy customer. As it is right now I have to scroll back through programming, find the show I was watching, click on it, and try to remember where I was and start fast forwarding which is a huge pain if your like me and watch different shows depending on the mood you are in.
  • UFC Content...


    By BrokenCylon
    Update: Yay!!! Y’all fixed it, Tysm Devs, if you’re going to change how the content is displayed you should put that in the update notes, not just say that you’ve added an In-App ppv feature & nothing else but bug squashing... I can’t find any of the Greatest (KO’s, Submissions, Rivalries, etc...) videos (if they’re even on there anymore) w/how y’all have changed the landscape, there is no longer a “See All” tappable button to the right of the group heading so you can browse content, you just have to scroll from the right & read each individual title that way until it eventually ends & it seams like they’re not even in there...& as for the group headings that can be scrolled all there is now is Upcoming, Related & On-Demand, but again, no tappable “See All” button to browse anything else that was just there a few weeks ago.?
  • Not sure where to rate AppleTV version


    By D.a.v.e. (Mic3)
    The phone version of this app is...adequate. Could definitely be improved by having a ‘don’t show me’ list, because when have I ever wanted notifications on golf or baseball, but it’s mostly fine. The Apple TV version, however, is hot garbage and I don’t understand why. I’m legitimately hoping someone can help me. There’s no favorite teams/sports list, which means I have to dig for what I want to watch every time. Again, no ‘don’t show me’ list (really good idea, please implement), no replays button on the home screen like there used to be so now to watch last nights game I have to dig...a lot, and worst of all every time I use the app. it. keeps. kicking. me. out. and showing me something about AirPlay despite me having meticulously turned off everything AirPlay related on my Apple TV. This doesn’t happen with other apps, only espn. It makes games unwatchable. ESPN actively makes sports unsupportable. All I want to do is watch my basketball game without having to dig thru layers and layers of menus to find it and without the app crashing every 3 minutes. Someone please help me. 3 stars to the phone version, -3 to the appletv version.
