Mine is doing the same. I think a bunch of people were complaining about it last week.

Unfortunately I think ESPN app just sucks ass. I constantly have issues with their app on basically every platform (phone, xbox, laptop, etc.). My internet and everything else works flawlessly for any other app

Mine is horrible on the firestick. Gets glitchy after a few minutes to the point where it will make you nauseous. I turn on the Xbox and it works fine. It's bad on the firestick, but certainly not great on other platforms too.

re: watch ESPN App freezing every couple mins
When you say it's flawless, do you simply mean it's never lost signal? Or do you maintain perfect 1080 HD quality 90%+ of the time? Because that's a huge part of my problem with the app. It drops to a grainy unwatchable quality very frequently. And this is after using it on different networks, wired Lan, Wi-Fi, on smart TV, on Xbox, on phone, you name it. Tried everything. It's shitty quality no matter what

I've never had an ongoing issue with it on either one of my fire boxes at home or at the camp. The occasional buffer but nothing more than that. I have Eatel mid tier at the house and basic Cox at the camp.

xfinity customer.

tried to cast it to my tv in the pool room kept saying i was 'unathorized and to log out and back on again with my cable provider'

after 3x and a reboot of my android phone, i disgustedly gave up and went and watched the game on the one tv with a cable box.



glad i pay for shite that doesn't work right.

My WatchESPN app skips a frame every 10 seconds or so. Extremely annoying. It does this on my Xbones and Fire Sticks

Mine does the same thing across fiber internet, only when live games are on, if its just sportscenter or something it doesnt happen.

4 LSU games this year and all of them are skipping, freezing, I tried on PS4, Laptop, AppleTV, and ipad just to check. It's the service. Must have overloaded servers.

Which is interesting, the streaming model is going to have to have an infrastructure upgrade if we are to move forward.

I've been streaming for years, this is the first year I've ran into issues.

Btw Charter ISP.
