I haven't been paying attention during the T20 interlude..... So all games from England are now on ESPN3 and Oneworld Sports (only on DISH or Dishworld IPTV), and Willow has everything else (matches from West Indies and Sri Lanka listed as upcoming over the next few months on their web site)

What's the best way for watching ESPN3 on a large HDTV these days? Seems like Roku, if you pay DISH for ESPN channels? But I use DirecTV, so its seems I'm out of luck there. Comcast internet lets me get ESPN3 on IPad/iPod, but iPad hooked up to TV only mirrors the iPad display at same resolution (so the picture only takes up the middle 1/2 of the screen making a 40" TV look like a 17" one!); while the WatchESPN app from the iPod doesn't output video at all, just sound, to the TV (even tho this arrangement works perfectly for Willow/Youtube streaming video out of the standard Safari browser). Seems like I'm out of luck for now, unless anyone has better ideas.


If you have Comcast internet, you can watch ESPN3 on Roku and Apple TV with Watch ESPN apps with out dish subscription. Just login using your comcast credentials on roku or Apple TV, it will let you to watch ESPN3 exclude ESPN live TV channels.

I came across this on the FAQ page at the WatchESPN website:

 

 


** I get ESPN3 through my affiliated ISP. Why can't I access it through Apple TV, Roku or FireTV?

 

WatchESPN on Apple TV, Roku and FireTV require an affiliated video subscription.

 

Is this not correct?

 

I'd grab a Roku box if I could watch ESPN3 at no cost, and watch Willow using their Willow app (already pay them for the online service), without having to pay extra for, eg, Dishworld.

 

If not, I'll find plenty of other stuff to watch over the summer, just less cricket. Eventually DirecTV will sort things out with ESPN/WatchESPN, even if they're the last major TV provider to do so.

I have been watching ESPN3 on Apple TV with Comcast login more than a year. Just try it. I tried on Roku also and it is working fine.

This is probably a basic question for you guys.  I subscribe to Dish (satellite service) and get Willow.  I do not subscribe to Dishworld.  Can I still use Willow application on my Roku or view Willow online using my Dish credentials?  Or do I need a separate subscription for this?

OK - looked at the Roku boxes, and will try one out on the weekend.

 

Does anyone use the stand-alone Willow app (with willow online subscription) on their Roku? At willow.tv, there's still details on how to do this, but Willow is not listed as a channel on the Roku website. Ideally, I want the Roku box to do so both (so I can stop hooking my iPod touch up to the TV to watch matches willow streams)

Follow the willow.tv instruction and install as a private channel once you configured your Roku. You can use dish world apps also on Roku to watch willow tv channels. Check it on dishworld.com website. They do have sports pack for 10/month which includes willow.tv.

Quick question....is willow.tv streaming on dish world include games that willow sometimes don't stream online due to their contract with espn? E.g. ipl playoffs games were not streamed by willow but by espn3 but willow showed those games on TV

Willow tv web site does not list NZ tour of WI. However, dbstalk is showing this tour to be shown by willow tv. Do anyone have any idea?

Well, earlier tonight, I checked out the Willow app on Roku. It listed the next game they would be showing live as a Bangladesh v India game on about June 15. Then when I tuned in the channel, the first ad I saw was for coverage of WI v NZ from June 8. So, you guess is as good as anyones!

England v Sri Lanka, live on ESPN3 via my new Roku box, looked stunning this morning. Excellent PQ. Never even had to enter my Comcast (ISP) account details - I don't know if it picked it up via my router and modem, or via my iPod/iPad logged in to Watch ESPN app. But somehow it just worked. (ESPN/ESPN2/ESPNU TV channels still locked out as I have DirecTV, but that's OK - I only needed ESPN3)

 

Grabbed the Willow TV app as I have Willow online monthly subscription, and the Youtube app is also configurable enough to let me access my Willow online subscription there also, so I can pick up Willow's highlights clips and replays. Will have to wait a few weeks to see which one does better on a Willow live match stream.

The New Zealand tour of West Indies showed up today on the schedule for ESPN 3. Also shows up on Willow TV's schedule - http://cricket.willow.tv

Looks like this is a similar agreement between ESPN and Willow. ESPN3 will do the online streaming whereas Willow will show on TV only (no streaming).

 

We streaming subs of Willow will not be able to watch the series unless we have ESPN3 also.

Yes - it seems that way. I have the Willow online streaming subscription, and the Willow app on the Roku. When Willow aren't showing a live streaming match, the app give you the option to the the Willow TV channel streamed thru the Roku. This morning, with Willow TV channel listed as showing the WI-NZ test, the Willow TV channel being streamed was showing an old IPL game.

 

But, on ESPN 3 on the Roku, it looks good.

What makes you think they aren't?

 

youtube.com/willow is still up, and www.willow.tv is full if links for users to link their willow and youtube accounts to watch matches via their youtube channel.

Anyone else using the Willow app on a Roku box with Willow monthly online subscription? (Not Willow Channel via Dishworld on Roku)

 

I tried it once about a week ago, and got an error message that it couldn't connect to the feed. "Try again in a few minutes". It wasn't urgent. Last night, I went to take a look at the SL-SAfr test before bed and got the same error message. Annoying - tho still not terrible at this point, as long as they fix it before matches that are more amenable viewing in the US eastern time zone.
