  • All my sports but make the x an X

    By SRQ Drew
    When waiving a video and then closing is extremely tough.... Please make the x an X so it's easier to close
  • Blank Screen App

    By Zazza4
    App is mostly just a blank screen that takes forever to load. World Wide Leader in Sports is the World Wide Leader in useless apps. Expect better.
  • Apps cool but wish it was usable

    By beekay415
    Everything is just slow on this app. Not enjoyable to use when 80% of the time you’re just waiting for it to load. Half the time it doesn’t even open the article you clicked on through notifications.
  • Too many glitches

    By J53562
    Freezes often and chrome casting only works for commercials
  • Update killed the app

    By Slaback
    App won’t load on ios14 with the new update.
  • Paid money, wants me to sign in

    By GamerWriterDad
    Unusable. I paid the subscription, but it asks me to sign in with TV Provider. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Same problem. Looked up troubleshooting (missing first quarter of the game) none of the posted solutions worked, 1-800 number had long wait times and suggested going to website. Don’t waste your money.

    Please mention Tom Nieporte the long time golf pro at Wfgc! The 10 hole is his hole. First pro to bring in women professionals to his staff

    By Jono Lawson
    No support for iOS 14 Widgets. I have to scroll through a bunch of content that has nothing to do with teams I follow to just find the scores and upcoming matchups for my favorites.
  • Widget

    By jaydainn
    It’s missing the new widget feature to keep up with each and every game from the home screen
  • Goodbye ESPN Plus

    By markbyrn
    The only reason I use the ESPN app is to watch live sports and with ESPN Plus, there was always plenty to watch. With the pandemic greatly reducing content and very limited college football, ESPN Plus is overpriced and I won't be renewing. The app itself is useful to watch the network for the few major pro sports games but the ESPN sports journalism is amateurish or agenda driven.
  • Great app but not working

    By Bigbeast1990
    Ever since last updated it’s stopped working on me. Any help?
  • Can’t add/remove favorites

    By w777h
    I set up favorites a while back and now I can’t make any edits, there is a process to delete a favorite but it doesn’t work
  • Push notifications do NOT link you to story or highlight described in the notification

    By _EEP
    Please please please fix your push notifications so that it actually opens the story or highlight in the push notification and not some random story or highlight on the app.
  • Not able to access live broadcasts

    By T Soul
    Not able to watch live sports yesterday and again today. The eliminated WatchESPN and now the app won’t function properly. Can’t even get it to open to verify my provider.
  • ESPN doesn't care. TheScore is better

    By Mickmeister17
    ESPN doesn't care to take the time to make sure that sports teams logo's lol the same when in light & dark mode. (Ex- University of Pittsburgh has 2 different logos depending what mode you're using. The non-dark mode has the correct color scheme). There are other logos wrong as well. They do not care to fix them and the league notifications for all sports lack in content compared to TheScore. If you're looking for an app switch to that one. I've been happy ever since I switched.
  • Live stream is awful

    By JRP0068
    The live streaming service is incredibly bad. Seems to be a common occurrence. I am hooked up to fiber internet.
  • garbage

    By MatteBlackIrby
    This app constantly slows down and speeds up live streams. I’m using an IPad Pro. It’ll play good for about 3 minutes before I need to restart the app.
  • No SVP SC ON-demand Replays

    By Get2DaChoppa
    All I want from this app is to watch a replay of SVP’s SC. That’s it. Why is this so hard? Why is it the ONLY original show that isn’t available to watch on-demand? So absurd.
  • Please allow for more customization

    By DCongdon
    Constant UFC updates sent as notifications All the latest USWNT info sent as notifications TMZ - style sports gossip sent as notifications. For the love of everything holy, let us opt out of seeing those notifications...let us opt out of seeing WNBA scores on our hope screen on the app or UFC fight results or honestly, anything. Why can we not customize all of this? Editing this to include my frustration with the ads...I pay for ESPN+ so that I don’t have to watch ads online - why can’t this include my mobile? Forcing me to watch an ad after a video is infuriating.
  • Don’t get Subscription if you use an Antenna!

    By keith scheeler
    I purchased a subscription to watch NFL on ESPN. I already purchased ESPN+ but I couldn’t watch Monday Night Football. The app gave me the option to get more sports by subscribing so I did. I still couldn’t watch so I contacted support. I got told I had to have a TV provider. I said I paid because I don’t have a TV Provider. She told me because of no provider I couldn’t watch it! What kind of idiots have a subscription for sports but if you get it you can’t watch it. So ESPN wants you to pay someone else and then you can watch it without paying them! I believe the CEO is an Idiot! Don’t invest in this company!
  • ESPN doesn’t do full access

    By acegreg
    I am subscribed to ESPN believing it would actually allow me full access to watch live games. However it wants a TV provider plus your subscription to watch light games. So the app is completely useless for what it is advertising for. Refunds are not available.
  • Unable to select tv provider

    By trom2k
    The Apple TV app used to work fine however I am now unable to select my tv provider in the Apple TV app nor does it recognize the provider that is stored on my phone and shared with the Apple TV. The only way I can watch something from ESPN on the tv is through AirPlay from my phone. The Apple TV app is basically useless for me. Not ideal.
  • Too many ads

    By KevinMac408
    The app itself is fine and works for checking box scores, news and updates but watching videos is unbearable. Even with ESPN+ you still have to watch a 15-30 second ad for what could end up being a 15 second highlight. The videos are designed to be short clips that are easily accessible but the ads ruin the experience. Maybe it’s just me but I don’t have the patience to watch videos in a feed when every video gets interrupted by an ad longer than the clip itself. Super frustrated.
  • This app is poop

    By AllyTayleigh
    This app does not have live sports. I cut the chord with cable and you cannot access live sports with out cable pffffttthhhh
  • Crashes

    By J_W_55
    CONSTANTLY! Will freeze on sign in. TERRIBLE
  • Airplay fail

    By Nonoguru
    App won’t airplay to anything. I know it’s not the connection because other shows like Hulu etc. all work just fine
  • Disappointed

    By Wnylibertarian
    When Disney + came out I purchased the bundle that included ESPN + along with Hulu thought it would be great come football season to watch Monday Night Football. Well here we are first MNF game of season and ya can’t watch it live with the app. Like what’s the point of ESPN + if ya can’t watch MNF I don’t get it very dissatisfied
  • ESPN app

    By jhgfhjjggh
    All it does is tell me I’m off line even though every other App is working
  • Has some great features but...

    By sports24/7/365
    The favorites option is great with score alerts. It is easy to navigate. However, it is very slow to load. Also all my news alerts seems to come from Stephen A. Smith, I couldn’t care less what that loud mouth jerk had to say.

    By Pumamex
    Just wasted $49.99 for nothing ! Trash
  • Surprisingly Bad

    By CavsKing11
    For a company with so much money you think more than $38 would be spent on the app.
  • Waste of money

    By wasteofti e
    Spend $50 to watch football not tennis or other things
  • finally tossed this junk

    By davedog545
    after 3 years of updates it crashes more than nascar. for videos, all i get is a black screen, then Crash! sometimes i get only audio then Crash! when i launch it it Crashes! when i go to the app from the widget - it Crashes! the widget repeatedly says pick favorite teams, or cannot load. screw this junk!!!
  • This app is horrible

    By Pastellover24
    It doesnt even have all the games and youd think by paying, you could watch all the games but no. Do better espn.
  • Links for push notifications break

    By Gagling
    When you click a link from a push notification, it either leads to a blank, black screen or brings you to the home page. Garbage
  • Stop screwing up formula 1

    By yert90
    Formula 1 is always screwing up. Put some effort into it. I mean it can’t be that hard. Somebody else is doing most of the work.
  • ESPN

    By rookeze
    I love this app gives a big help with sports
  • Bad app

    By Harlemzson
    If I’m paying for the app and I have to add a subscription to it then there is no point to downloading the app !! I wasted my money highly disappointing !!! They don’t even have the good mind to say hey before you down load the app make sure u have your own cable subscription no sense a waste of money I already canceled my subscription with no money back !!!
  • Downloading the app??

    By jr. Brandon
    Hey I just downloaded this app and when I looked at my phone it said there was a cost for it per year I set my phone down and when I picked up my phone I realized it said nothing. Is this app free? Or cost money?
  • One of the worst app.

    By pml pml
    It’s so confusing and difficult to use. ESPN+ no more.
  • Pro Tip

    By Jedman1
    When watching clips/highlights, pause and close the video right before it ends. Otherwise the app locks up and you have to watch unskippable ads.
  • Don’t Make Me Think

    By steelspring
    I like the app, but why make it so hard to get the info you really need? Open it up, top stories and games going on; cool. Scroll down, see one of my favorite team’s score; ok cool. They won, wonder what the standing are, now that MLB is talking post season? Oh that info isn’t on the score recap page. Ok. Go back to the main page. More top stories, in case I missed it the first time. Scroll down more, see more headlines I don’t care about. Ok now I finally see all the MLB scores. NOW I can click on that, to click on another tab to get the standings. So much work for just that info. Why not list the standing tab in every game recap? It would lessen the headaches...
  • ACC Network won’t stream

    By Italy122
    ACC Network won’t stream on any device. Fix asap! Ridiculous.
  • Garbage

    By Pierre Prox McGrundy
    Incredibly frustrating
  • The Ads before videos are killing me

    By jerace21
    I usually love ESPN, but now they force you to watch an entire ad before watching any or every video, making the app almost unbearable. On top of this I pay for ESPN+. No longer. They should at the very least let the user opt out of the video after 6-7 seconds. C’mon ESPN, of all the cheap, lousy ways to earn a buck.
  • Adds

    By flnsb
    Not sure why when you’re paying for this app. You have to see amazon commercials and Joe Biden adds. When will they figure out we don’t want politics with sports.
  • keeps freezing

    By stonzee
    App keeps freezing which makes watching any game impossible. Horrible app
  • Not worth it

    By AyeYoAl
    You would expect to be able to watch ESPN if you pay for a subscription to ESPN+ but it’s not that easy. They forgot to highlight the fact that you also need to pay for a cable package that includes ESPN. Not worth the subscription unless you also have cable with a package that includes ESPN, and even then still not too sure if it’s worth it. It might as well just be their regular app. If you’re thinking about pay for ESPN+ don’t!
