This app is terrible, never works or loads anything correctly
Do not purchase this service. ESPN sells the service and then you find out that the sport and team you want to watch is blacked out in the area you live. The team in question is local to me. Now Apple has deactivated my iTunes account and also blocked me from making purchases in iTunes using my PayPal account. Run away while you can!
Won’t let me cast to TV when other apps do. Constantly making me sign in again with TV provider. Have to frequently close app to refresh when trying to watch a game because the game won’t open.
But the “watch” function rarely works.
When you try to switch the audio to Spanish never works. Not on iPhone nor on iPad. Very disappointing.
I purchased this app in March of 2020. It does not work about 50% of the time. I have to cancel all other functions, and reload ESPN to watch my purchased content. It freezes constantly, causing me to have to restart matches. I will not be renewing my app purchase with ESPN. Sorry UFC, if your app was any better it would probably cut down on the pirating...which is much better quality than the legally purchased app you hide behind
The ESPN app does a lot of things well, like giving you quick updates on scores of your favorite teams, and allowing you to watch live games through your service provider. However there is a lot of inexcusable problems with the app. First off, it does not run well at all. Frequent crashes, slow load times, and links taking you to different articles than you clicked on. On top of this there is the constant push for monetization. In order to watch an 8 second clip of a basketball highlight, the app makes you watch a poorly rendered, 30 second advertisement. It’s a coin flip if the clip actually plays after the ad, and another coin flip if the clip will be rendered well enough to see. There is also a huge push to make you sign up for ESPN plus. Every good article is locked behind this pay wall, as well as constant ploys to get you to sign up. I want to keep up with sports, but the app does everything it can to make that difficult. Inexcusable from a company with the standards that ESPN has. 2/5 stars
Why is there no ESPN+ app for LG tvs??? It’s 2021 for Pete’s sake!! Get with LG and fix this.
Cancelled subscription because nothing would ever load. Whether on cellular or WiFi we couldn’t get any live channels.
I’m another ESPN+ subscriber along with a streaming service. No idea why I have to sit through a 25 second commercial to watch a 19 second sports clip. And, it’s EVERY SINGLE TIME! I get one or two once in a while or a skip feature for subscribers, but video content in its current form is unwatchable. The app itself has gotten better through the years. 4 Stars for App, -5 stars for ads, thus the lowest rating I could select.
