ESPN App is useless now

Used to be able to watch some decent stuff on there. Now you have to authenticate your account with your cable provider, and you can't watch anything on the app unless you have ESPN through your cable provider. Why the !@#$ would I watch something on my XBOX if I could just turn on the TV? And this app, among others, was part of the reason Microsoft justified the increase in XBOX Live Subscription cost (for those dumb enough to pay full price).

Apparently I'm 6 months late to this news, as most of the outrage happened when College Football started in September. Could care less about college sports, but pretty lame I can't watch the Bulls/Heat replay.

That's very possible. I only ever used it for NBA, and I actually had cable for the NFL season so I never noticed. Weird thing is it's working now. Apparently the replay is airing on ESPN currently and I was trying to play that by accident. It's also under Replays on ESPN 3 and that's streaming fine on my XBOX right now so I'm happy.

The ESPN app was always useless.

If you have internet...why not just find an HQ stream or full length HQ video? And if you're really wanting a good experience(and if you have the equipment i.e. a laptop, HDMI cord, and a tv that supports hd), just get an HDMI cord and connect it from your computer to your TV, max out and relax, and watch whatever your want. Never tried doing this with a desktop.

When was it useful?


I remember it being announced and the xbox editors were really hyping it up over games.
