Was on the road for work, pulled over and watched the Open. Made my day
(4★) Excellent
I would give ESPN five stars except for the number of commercials they force into the video stream. Other than that, a great app.
I hope that, like HBO, they will allow subscription without a cable or

Sometimes you have to refresh it by going back out of the app, but overall very good

TV Up North is limited (none?), but final few holes of British Open streamed through in fine fashion.

The extent and quality of the coverage offered is by far one of the best

(5★) Dorward
Enjoy the app. Easy to get on and move around the site. Been using it mainly to watch the Open .
The few people complaining of crashes etc. should investigate their own equipment or device software, because this is the most
functionally sound app I have ever encountered. To be able to watch an ev
(5★) Needs subscription
Good app, but you need to have a watch ESPN subscription

Sure, there are some network glitches that may cause the occasional pause, but that's like complaining about Randy Johnson because

(4★) Pretty Decent App
Hate that it's not 100% live and sometimes it freezes/backtracks but then again it's super useful when you're not in front of
your TV set. So overall it's worth it to use.
Love the opportunity to see live Wimbledon tennis final instead of a delay on AT&T later in the afternoon. Great app!

After logging in with xfinity, the app crashes when clicking on any stream. Tried restarting the iPad with no luck.

So excited to be able to watch Wimbledon when away from my tv. Worked perfectly. Thank you ESPN app!
(2★) inconsistent
Shuts down every time it goes to commercial.
(4★) Tennis doubles
I am very grateful for the opportunity to watch doubles matches. Networks ignore the fact that the majority of tennis players play
doubles. It is ludicrous that stations will replay an old singles mat
