  • Doesn’t work well

    By Cameronindoorrox
    Glitches all the time
  • Terrible app

    By Hiddencrate
    Watch ESPN was a way better app. Never had issues with. Then this version comes out with its fancy unnecessary flash graphics and it went to crap. Constantly crashing, especially on android. Freezes all the time, especially trying to watch something live. I have 400 mbps which is really fast and this thing still won’t load or slows down to a snails pace. I used the old watch ESPN app today and it ran with no problems. Launched the new version and its back to the same bs. Get it together ESPN
  • Resets notifications settings every update

    By spike69
    Guys, I don’t want general breaking news updates. I have to re-turn it off every update. 👎

  • Notifications lead to blank screens

    By Sc1845
    Whenever I get a notification to article or video, it never loads
  • Waste of Money DO NOT BUY

    By soccerlover104
    I paid a subscription to watch a soccer match and it wouldn’t let me watch it because I had to sign in with my TV Provider. Why should I have to do that if I paid money to watch the match. Total waste of money and time, disappointing.
  • Unclear

    By Farajallah
    Does not show what you get with certain subscriptions, and is bad about recognizing cable logins in conjunction with a plus membership
  • Constant Issues

    Articles on the app often do not load, with only a white screen appearing. Other times an article I did not click on will appear and when you try to swipe to the article you want, it will momentarily go to that article and then switch back to the wrong one. Scores from sports I do not care about will appear before the scores of teams I have as favorites (happens most often with my NHL teams).
  • ESPN App

    By Aries041970
    This app crashed since yesterday. I can’t watch the morning shows. That’s why I gave you a one star instead of 5. Been using this app for years and I never seen so many errors. Also how come you don’t have ESPN radio 98.7 on your app?!😡
  • Worst app ever!!!!!

    By yahoofann
    Only works after initial download won’t open again for my iPhone. What a joke a company like espn should be embarrassed by this app!
  • never use espn anymore

    By krasygamerrrr
    i used to love this app and be on it all the time but now ever since they introduced espn+ , EVERYTHING HAS AN AD and you cannot skip it after 5 seconds or however long. literally if i want to watch an 8 second highlight , i have to go through a 30 second video first and then after i watch the video it automatically goes onto the next so i can't even watch it more than once without having to go back AND WATCH ANOTHER AD. all the half decent articles you have to pay for and everything. i hate this because working full time and college as well , i need all the money i have. i would always be on this app on my free time but NOT ANYMORE. this is just another example of a company sucking all the money out their consumers and leaving their unwealthy users in the dust.
  • Worst app 10 years strong

    By napplers
    This app never works how it’s supposed to. Tv provider login doesn’t work. Doesn’t work on fire stick and doesn’t work on iPhone. Never have streaming problems EXCEPT with ESPN. The only way it works is when they give u activation code. And that’s not an option on fire stick. Absolute trash
  • WTH what’s wrong with the app?

    By b1ackst0ne
    Ok so for the last month the app won’t open/ load properly this app used to be good now it’s trash
  • Ads

    By FeriendB
    I just don’t understand why I would have ads for ESPN+ when I’m paying for it...
  • Simply Awful

    By ecr72
    The Breaking News "feature" keeps turning itself back on. Nothing like watching a recorded game and having the stupid ESPN app ruin the outcome. I have turned off the BN notification so many times. It stays off for a while but almost like clockwork with a big game it magically turns on again. Simply awful.
  • Bad

    By I cant find a good name
    I really loved how I could be able to watch the nba playoff games on my phone. But the app takes forever to load once you launch it! I don’t want to sit around for 10 minutes just for the app to load
  • Alerts are annoying

    By RedSoxNation#1
    The app does not respect my notification settings. I have disabled “breaking news” alerts at least 10 times but each time the app is updated, it resets back. This is incredibly frustrating.
  • Never loads and just crashes.

    By Z_dizzle
    The EPSN app used to be great but after this last update I can never get the app to load and open.
  • Greatly disappointed.

    By Qrusty Boi
    Bummed I can’t even play the NBA finals through this app unless I have a TV provider.
  • I can not watch any live games even with the strongest internet connection!!😤🤬

    By yourmumgay♋️♋️♋️♋️♋️♋️♋️
    This is annoying please figure out why
  • Cant do anything, says im offline

    By TheGeoker
    Cant do anything, says im offline but i am online bc the old “watch espn” works and every app other than this. I cant watch any espn on this app bc of this. I am on a iphone xr 2019, at&t.
  • Amazing how bad it functions

    By Ndkdkfkcneif
    I love watching sports but this app is so buggy it just makes me want to break my phone. Trying to sign into my TV provider was nearly impossible because of numerous issues. Keyboard coming up in 1 direction, screen rotated the other. Then it rotates back but what I typed is gone. Try doing it from the settings page. Clicking on manage tv provider takes me out of the settings but not to a sign in screen. I’m over it. I guess I’ll just watch the highlights on youtube or something tomorrow.
  • Really, really tired of turning off notifications

    By tigertubagirl
    This app and its developers do not respect users’ right to privacy and to make choices about the notifications they receive. I only (!!!) want the notifications I have allowed, but literally every time the app updates (which is quite frequently, because it seems to be full of bugs), it automatically turns “breaking news” back on. It’s super frustrating and is frankly beginning to anger me. Quit being jerks, ESPN, and have some respect.
  • Notification spam for years

    By dsemaya
    I don’t want breaking news. I only want scores for my teams. I keep disabling breaking news yet espn keeps turning it back on without my consent to advertise their TV programming. Please stop.
  • ESPN

    By Deanyrn24
    Love this app
  • Good, But should be better than this

    By PeachesYoYo3
    Every time I get a notification saying “Must See” or any other notification I open it and it gives me nothing. And don’t give me some stupid answer ESPN saying it’s my device or sorry for the issues, try this. It’s your fault. All I want to see is the article/video you’re proclaiming is a must see. Please fix. This is an easy problem and solution. Thanks!
  • Too many Ads

    By 420 assassin
    The ads are definitely way more annoying before and after each video. The older app was a lot better. Everything clip you watch has a add before and in between which is stupid. You have to sit through and 30sec ad to watch a 30 sec video. I will be deleting this horrible app.
  • Video quality is often poor

    By pleaaefix0101010
    I try to watch the highlight videos often but the quality is so subpar!! The inability to buffer and especially on videos that are not live. Only on wifi does it work somewhat well.
  • Rarely works

    By Aah1996
    Absolutely love ESPN and their coverage however you would think a corporation as large as they are could make a much more fluid and functional app
  • Doesn’t work EVER

    By Soccerpsycho
    This app hasn’t worked for me for months. It’s been so long that I can’t even remember when it started being terrible. I used to be on it several times a day and now I just can’t. Content never loads, it just opens and crashes, I try to open an alert for a video and it doesn’t play or sometimes it does play but I only get sound on a black screen. I’ve done all the updates and tried deleting and reinstalling it and nothing works. I just go to the website now if I want something from espn at all.
  • App too complicated

    By Tom562224
    Please don’t discontinue the WatchESPN app until you get a better replacement than this one is. WatchESPN is simple and easy to navigate quickly.....this app is a nightmare to find what you want on and is very unstable and slow.
  • Awful

    By hdg97
    This used to be one of the best apps I owned. Not anymore. Half the time, the app doesn’t load whatsoever and it’s just a blank white page. I deleted and re-downloaded the app at least 10 times. Every time, it would seem to work fine again for a day or two before the same problems would resurface. Finally I just gave up and settled for Bleacher Report. It’s a shame because this was the best sports app before it became completely unusable.
  • Won’t even open 90% of the time

    By Dreeser
    I’ve had this app for the past month or so the app will open but nothing loads. Almost like it’s frozen. Every once in awhile the home page will open but I can’t get videos to play or articles to open. Very disappointed....especially in the midst of the NBA playoffs. I have resorted to keeping espn open in a webpage, which isn’t near as easy to navigate on my phone. Please fix these issues. My iPhone and app are up to date and not having issues with any other apps. Previous rating would have been 5 stars.
  • Slooooooooooooooooooow

    By Jerrymgrman
    Glad to see I’m not the only person thoroughly frustrated by how long it takes for this app to open. It’s 2019 ESPN.....need to hire people who know what the hell they’re doing. 🤬
  • Keeps crashing

    By axlrommel
    Fix pleeeeeeeaaaase!
  • Still paying!!

    By besoboi
    I canceled my subscription in March 2019 and they are still taking money from my account! Rude!
  • Can never open links

    By mcpoob
    Since the day I’ve had this app I’ve never been able to open a link or article after receiving the notification. Turning notifications off now unfortunately. Waste
  • FIFA women’s World Cup

    By stlhoosier
    The women’s World Cup starts in three days and it’s impossible to find information about it in this app. Is this a joke? There is still information from the men’s World Cup from last year. Obviously espn has no regard for women and women’s sports.
  • Terrible

    By Ronliv
    Takes way too long to open up, worst app I have ever had, gonna cancel if not corrected
  • Great app

    By Buijs216
    I love this app. It gives me almost all I want in terms of sport scores and news in one place. I agree with some other reviewers that it is slow and that should be addressed. My biggest irritation is that mma scores are always displayed. I have never nor will I ever be a fan of mma and I want the ability not to have those scores displayed in the same way I can choose favourites, the app should allow me to unchoose a sport I have no interest in
  • glitch

    By Travellin_man
    this app glitches more than the first app ever made. it’s making me hate sports
  • I used to love this espn app but lately it has sucked

    By Lsubadboy
    I used to always watch games from my phone and stream it to my tv but for about 3 months I haven’t been able to get it to work I can watch it on my phone fine but getting it on tv just won’t work I have changed hdmi cables and my iPhone adapter that works for it to stream every thing else works that I want to stream to my tv bit this espn app and just pissing me off cuz I’d rather watch it on tv then my phone can someone there help fix these problems so it will work right again for years I never had a problem with it I hear people are having problems all over with the app so I know y’all need to get someone on this I know a lot of people who uses this so please get it fixed
  • You’re Lucky If It Works

    By reedflinch
    There are no worse-performing apps on my phone than ESPN. I keep my phone and apps up to date, but ESPN still manages to consistently disappoint me. Tapping on an ESPN notification is almost guaranteed to crash the app. Video playback, especially in full screen, is awful. In general, it is just terribly slow and feels incredibly bloated. ESPN has great sports coverage but their app has forced me to look elsewhere.
  • World-wide leader? Still far behind.

    By Gray Cloud
    The espn app isn’t perfect by any means but it’s been improving since their debacle years ago in charging for services way before the market was ready. I’ve been especially disappointed in the fact that espn carries the Women’s College World Series but doesn’t include box scores or summaries linked to games in the app. The WCWS kicks off summer in our house. Is squire disappointing to have to miss a game and not have information or stats available after the game or, to a lesser extent, during the games. World-wide leader? Still far behind.
  • Closes on iPad

    By taintednobodies
    Can’t watch any live games as app closes when I try to watch games.
  • Best to worst

    By rd 26
    Used to love the app. Updated some time ago and hasn’t worked correctly since. Only works maybe 1/4 of the times I try to open it. Tried re-downloading again today after doing it several times over the last few weeks. Still is crap. Please fix this app so it works when I try to open it
  • Okay

    By Bolin6
    It’s okay for the watch. It shows the score and outs. If there was a play by play/ or pitch by pitch would be great for baseball. See who is up, and see pitch count. It gets the general job done.
  • Full screen

    By Pistolgrip09
    Screen is still not optimized for iPhone 10x Max, make it full screen for 5 stars
  • The most expensive worst app I have

    By Dacano56
    This app worked before all the Ufc ppv started...what a scam...I spell useless ESPN...
