I'd love to have Watch ESPN for MLL games this season, but what really ticks me off is that I have ESPN360 (or whatever they are calling it this week) because I have Charter for my ISP, so why do they package what is essentially just the mobile version of the exact same thing in a way that I don't have access? I don't mind some warranted greed, but ESPN makes providers look bad with their greed!

Not everyone wants to break their support contract with Apple.

well, the app IS NOT the only way to watch ESPN, if you have a sling or a sling-esque device, you can watch it like that...

No. It is not but a sling box doesn't give you the many espn3 games. The watch espn app is pretty good. I have it and use it.

Make friends with a Time Warner or Comcast or Verizon subscriber. I am sure glad that I did :)


yep me too...i have D, but my best friend still has time warner, so i just use his login...he never uses it anyway as he doesnt have a smartphone and wouldnt use it anyway. its still BS that i have time warner for internet, but those greedy SOBs will only let you use watch ESPN app if you have TV service which is ridiculous since its an internet application. i even pay for their turbo service which is like 60 bucks a month.

Bright House has had it for some time now -- but only if you have a TV package with them. Internet-only folks (like me) are blocked.
