  • Can’t watch my team

    By i cant watch my favorite team
    The app is good to remind me my favorite teams are playing, but I can’t even watch them play thru the app. Every game is always blacked out even tho I’m no where near where the game is played and it’s not on any tv network or any other streaming network. If I’m hundreds of miles away from the game and it’s only viewable on espn+ why is it blacked out?! I’m paying you to see it but can’t. It’s ridiculous and annoying.
  • Won’t allow streaming on iPad 6th Generation

    By Hiramboy60
    I used to be able to stream content on my iPad. Now I’m not able to do that. I have a newer iPad with updates OS. I called the ESPN support team and they keep telling me to call my provider to reset my account password for my provider. Called my provider everything works with them. I can stream ESPN on all my devices except my iPad. It’s very disappointing ESPN. You took away the WatchESPN app away. Every since then I have issues streaming on the new app. Now I can’t watch anything. I like to be able to watch multiple games at one time. Thanks ESPN for taking that ability away.
  • It’s not working!!!!

    By ApdaG
    Just as everyone else is saying on here. The app is not working!! When you open it, it is a blank screen. You have to delete and download again. Then it works for a little bit and stops. I was having to use browser to get to ESPN but got fed up and now downloaded another sports reporting app. Fix ESPN!!
  • App has been awful for weeks now

    By PoolmasterBB
    This was ALWAYS my go to app for sports. But for last 5/6/7 weeks now, it will NOT open. I get the white screen and then it closes or freezes. I tried uninstalling and re installing. No good. Wonder if anyone else has this problem . iPhone 8 with updated IOS.
  • Like you don’t already make enough money.

    By Fcbhghghjjkk
    Can’t even read all articles without paying for a subscription. What a joke.
  • Crashing

    By Jon5188
    Keeps crashing when I try to open it
  • Crashing and unresponsive

    By Bryce Flocks
    I keep having to redownload the app because it becomes unresponsive and crashes over and over again. Happened multiple times now.
  • The ESPN sport show

    By draret
    Let’s ignore so many other sports. Long way from being a sportS network
  • Trouble opening my app

    By Shihidomar
    I can’t open my app... And it’s telling me to read the agreement and hit accept but I don’t see that option...
  • Terrible

    By NOLA Who Dat
    Flat out terrible! Not even worthy of 1 star!!! Bring back watch ESPN... please!!!
  • Missing some key features.

    By ellis.adamm
    After the addition of ESPN + there are a lot of shows to watch on demand. The problem is that if you start a show and don’t finish it, there is nowhere to resume where you left off when you want to come back and watch again. It needs a watch list and also the ability to resume. It’s also missing stat leaders for each of the leagues. As for the rest of the app, I miss the ability to see the box scores for other games while I’m watching live tv on my phone. For instance if I’m watching a pistons game on the app and want to check the red wings score I should be able to scroll though box scores below the game I’m watching.
  • ESPN +

    By sax_kid2007
    The app is very easy to navigate and finding the articles/videos I want to watch is easy. My biggest issue is when I click on ESPN + articles it always relays me to and it never carries my ESPN + subscription over and it will never recognize my ESPN account info. Thus it keeps asking me to subscribe again to ESPN + even though I’m already a subscriber. It’d be nice if when you click on certain ESPN + articles it didn’t try to redirect you to and just instead kept you in the app so you wouldn’t have to keep signing in and out. Other than that the app is fine.
  • Not working as of 3 days ago

    By Ramy782
    For whatever reason this app is now just a blank canvas when you open it. Anybody having the same issue?
  • App crashing on loading

    By pingoman4
    For the last 2 weeks, the app has been crashing everytime I try to open it. No one has fixed the issue yet
  • Crashes or won’t load

    By OTdancer
    The latest version is buggy it crashes, won’t load or is super slow.
  • Alerts still reset each update

    By Jrs159
    Every update it seems breaking news alerts get toggled back on. I just want the scores, stop trying to force other notifications for sports/teams I have no interest in into my already cluttered feed.
  • Getting notifications I don’t want...

    By BchBumm
    This app is getting annoying. I select my teams that I want to get notified about and I’m getting notified about Monday night football and my team isn’t even playing. WHY? Because ESPN is airing the game. STOP!!! I get notified about stories and scores about sports and teams I don’t care about and it’s getting annoying. May gage to try getting my info from Fox Sports and see if there is any better. 👎🏻 👎🏻
  • Keeps crashing, unusable

    By michaelcowan
    Always been my go to app for checking scores and game times. It started crashing and unable to open period. I would get notifications in the banners, click on them, the app would attempt to load, but never make it to front page. I’ve deleted and re-downloaded it, which fixed the problem only temporarily.
  • Update is terrible

    By Dallas Cowboys FTW
    I don’t know what they did, but since this last update I’ve had to delete the app and reinstall it three times already. It hasn’t been able to load the app in a few days now... hoping reinstalling it again works, but they need to roll it back for sure!
  • Fix your app!

    By L1537
    White screen when you open it....🙄
  • Worldwide leader in app crashes

    By anonymus1230
    ESPN may be the Worldwide Leader in Sports, but it is a worldwide failure in app development. I guess ESPN is pumping its money into contracts or music, because the app is incredibly frustrating for a sports entertainment powerhouse. The app constantly crashes, is apologizing for something not going right, mutes itself, lags a ton for real-time sporting events. I understand it’s incredibly difficult to develop, program, run an app—but, again, for what ESPN is supposed to stand for (and with the backing of Disney money), I don’t think it’s too hard to ask for a more dependable app, akin to how dependable ESPN for sports news.
  • Keeps crashing

    By ewave54
    The app is solid, except that, after having the app for years, it has begun to crash with regularity. I’m met by a white screen when I open the app that closes out automatically after about 10 seconds. Reopening the app repeats the process, as does turning off my phone and turning it back on. I have to just delete the app, redownload ESPN and then it works fine. However, this has happened every other day for a couple weeks now. A bug fix of this would be great with the next update.
  • App won’t load.

    By ohhjayr
    Notifications crash my phone and the app itself won’t load at all.
  • Annoyed with breaking news

    By 5232223
    I would rate it higher if it would let me actually turn off the stupid breaking news notifications. I have tried turning them off multiple times, yet I still get the notifications because it turns back on. Really annoying because I only want my teams updates.
  • Unable to use-no refund

    By Shrinking merry
    It’s not clear that in order to watch ESPN through this app, you have to subscribe to TV. The reason I wanted this app is simply because I don’t have access to TV service. This is not a means to get access to live ESPN.
  • Broken

    By MikeF315
    White screen. That’s all.
  • App won’t load

    By Charlie the Grumbling Tummy
    App won’t load. I have to delete the app and re download it ever day or two. I’ve recently transitioned to CBS Sports app because espn can’t figure it out.
  • ESPN +

    By thegeneral1899
    Not a fan of the teasers for subscription service.
  • Pause bug

    By sethlong
    I really wish they’d fix the pause bug on AppleTV. It has persisted across several app and tvOS updates. If you pause a replaying program you can’t resume playback unless you back out of the video to the menu and click the program thumbnail to play again.
  • Crashes

    By si3799
    The app was crashing anI deleted it and reinstalled. It worked for a few days but now it is crashing again.
  • Loading

    By Rating and dating
    Often takes forever to load or does not load at all
  • Hidden radio!

    By Farklelicious
    I have the hardest time finding the Listen Live radio. Could you put it on a menu somewhere instead of hiding it at the bottom of a random page? Not intuitive. Not user friendly.
  • Too many bugs

    By Jhzgduehdh
    Too many bugs. I have to keep deleting and reinstalling the app
  • Good but...

    By FM Lion
    Best sports app in terms of accessibility and news. Can arrange by favorite teams. But crashes on me every now and then. Would give it 3.5 out 5 if I could and not 4.
  • Fix the app!!

    By jls97
    Just crashes after a few hours after re-downloading the app. FIX IT
  • Not improving...

    By jansengough
    ESPN app has been my go to since I’ve had a smartphone (~2012). The app has been great been in the last two or three years I’ve seen no improvements. When I tap a push notification it goes to a loading screen where the article or video never loads. Ads are seemingly longer and more mandatory than ever. Why am I watching a 30 second ad to see a 7 second highlight?!? I have notifications on and my favorite teams selected and I don’t even get updates about when they’re playing or when they score even though I have it set. And then I’ll get some random notifications about boxing or what have you and I don’t even get the ones for teams I’m trying to follow. I think a lot of changes can be made to improve the ESPN app.
  • You could give this job to anyone else

    By RyanMattell
    Why are the games consistently not starting on time? Because the schedule is never right. Every league has their schedule listed on their respective websites. The fact that ESPN workers can not grasp this concept means they need some new workers. If a game starts at 12:00pm then it starts at 12:00pm. No excuses.
  • New ads

    By cc4023572
    I’m sorry but it seems ridiculous that I am forced to watch at 15-20 second ad for every video highlight that I open sometimes the ads are longer than the actual video clips
  • Great Mobile App but bugs are irritating

    By jakeyarinsky
    Great notifications and personalizing of app for fans. But a few bugs make it hard to recommend. Main video on home screen does not update and will take me to a different video when I tap it. But recently I haven’t even been able to open it because it crashes without displaying anything. Needs better iOS 13 compatibility.
  • Need big improvements

    By Tay.Williams
    Great app but I have to re-download it every other day because after about two days it just crashes as I open it
  • Smh

    By FatboiSlaw
    App has not worked for 2 days. I thought it was bc I needed to update my iOS but still not working.
  • No longer great

    By Hrcsnanzbj
    This app was great for a while until recently it’s having significant issues with loading. I have to close out of the app and try 2-5 times for the screen to load.
  • The apps not working

    By -Bad-Blood
    It won’t load I closed it but this is lame
  • Broken

    By Me12345678888888888888
    This is a great app for highlights and scores but the app won’t load for me. It hasn’t worked for days now and I’ve tried everything. Every other thing on my phone works. Please fix
  • Fine for scores, insufferable ads for vids

    By dumonj
    It’s a well-built app, can add personalized teams and leagues, set notifications yadda yadda, but for crying out loud, a 15 second ad for a 23 second video clip? Can’t do it. I’ve found just following leagues on social media is a much more ad-free experience.
  • Sign in with Apple!

    By CorrectOpinionMan
    EDIT: Please make it clear in the app if football and basketball games are pre-season or regular games EDIT: I deleted my ESPN account. I will not create a new one until you add Sign in with Apple It’s always impossible to watch the pregame before a game starts. For example, if a football game starts at 7:30 and I want to turn on the channel before it starts to see the pre-game, this is nearly impossible. You should be able to just play whatever is on ESPN, ESPN2, etc, without having to pick a specific game. ANOTHER EXAMPLE: Just watched US Open 2019 Men’s Championship. The commentators kept saying to turn on ESPN2 to watch the post-game award ceremony. I was unable to turn this on. There should just be an ESPN, ESPN2, etc button to simply turn on that channel. This is such a joke.
  • Broken

    By willninhoh
    Update broke it
  • Can’t change tv provider

    By ASDohm
    I switch streaming services. When I try to change, it gives me the option to log into my old provider, not change providers. I tried uninstalling, doesn’t work. How’s it go, that’s right, C’mon man!
  • Too much content

    By perrydo5126
    You have too much content on the main page. Scores...nothing but scores should be on the home page. Content should be on a separate page that I can access if I want. It is really hard to find the scores I want to see. They always seem to be hidden without a reasonable menu path to get to even the most obscure sport.
