  • Video App Missing Critical Functionality

    By SoundsRushing_
    Soooo....typically when writing requirements for a video app, or any app with sound, someone at the table raises their hand and asks how users will raise or lower the volume. Oh! The little speaker with the bar that can go up or down. “Great idea! But you know who doesn’t need it? The ESPN app for the amazon fire. Forget those people! “ Smash cut: me installing and reinstalling the app several times trying to figure out to raise the volume louder than a whisper to hear....anything...nope. No volume setting organic to the app for the Fire. ESPN....Y u hate Fire? Save yourself the time and the what I have done...use your cable providers app and watch from their app. Unless you enjoy watching sports commentators whisper the play by plays.
  • Awful

    By Shayna4443
    Espn has the worst streaming service ever it is constantly freezes and jumps ahead!
  • Love having it, don’t love all the problems

    By HottyToddyFan
    Trying to watch baseball games is so frustrating. It seems every time commercials are on, there’s not a problem with freezing up. However, trying to watch a game you encounter frozen screens, black screens with the name of two other team playing in the top left corner, or the video just terminates. I wish someone could/would fix all these bugs. It’s not just on my computer!
  • Constant buffering & glitches, total failure!

    I have Verizon Gigabit FIOS and the constant freezing & reloading streaming still makes my experience a total nightmare!
  • Service provider

    By Legenddriverc
    I tried to use this app but when it says choose your service provider, the only option that comes up is to log in to optimum which I don’t have.
  • This app is bad

    By Jbj1986
    First time writing a review. Just want to let others know that this app terrible.
  • Freezes constantly

    By RobbyP504
    This problem happens on every device: iphone, iPad, laptop, and Xbox one (worse on Xbox). It's impossible to get through a whole game. I'm attempting to watch the NBA playoffs and every time I see a game is going to be broadcasted on ESPN, I know I'm going to have to just watch the highlights the next day. To put this into perspective, the service is so bad that I made my first ever review since owning the first iPhone today.
  • TV provider function is broken.

    By JohnnyEncore
    Once you choose one TV provider your stuck using it. There’s no option to change or update provider. Seems like a simple thing to fix but If you change cable, you might as well delete the app. I did.
  • Buggy Playback

    By The Larper
    There are plenty of sites and apps that stream video perfectly. This is not one of those apps.
  • Pitiful

    I don't usually write reviews, but this app is just too disappointing not to alert purple against using it. Shame on you ESPN
