Only use it on iPhone, MacBook and thru AppleTV for tv viewing. Never have any problems w the player, but good god does the user interface suck hellacious balls. That HBO max interface tho!!
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

"I've never had issues with ESPN+" The natural follow-up is, how much ESPN+ have you watched. I didn't watch it on Saturday but the issue of the steam starting late for some and others not being able to join live are actual things that happened. Them only having one camera for the Oklahoma State game that kicked the Big 12 package on ESPN+ off is something that happened, for literally everyone watching that game.

we watch an absolute shitload of espn+. more obscure college baseball games that nobody GAF about (me included) than you could ever imagine. I'd also like to shout out ESPN+ (on behalf of lil sd) for playing basically every college baseball game you could ever want to watch.

I doubt Amazon is going to do this on the cheap.

They also were stuck on first half replay to start the second half.   The bugs are definitely still not worked out on the product.

I see people complain about ESPN+ streaming quality all the time, but my experience has been nearly flawless for years.
Let's be real though.  You've only been watching football streams for the last 3 weeks.

I read that Amazon prime had more prime enrollments for the Thursday night football game than they ever got for their previous prime enrollment promotions/specials.

I just heard this stat, they had more signups last Thursday than any other single day in prime history, more than on any black Friday, cyber Monday, or prime day. That's bonkers. The NFL is king.

Au contraire. Do you know how many KU fball games get relegated to The Plus? I've watched every game I could since 2006, I'd guess.

Yes, the issue with Spracne isn't that he hasn't watched the Hawks, it's that those scrubs are only on streaming, FS1, and ESPNU. Dude doesn't know what a nice broadcast looks like.

I mean, I thought we were discussing the integrity of the stream, not the sub-tier production quality and announcers, which is expected for undercards like KU fball vs. crap teams like Tenn. Tech and KSU.

This is me except for MLS/USL/EFL/Bundesliga/Eredivisie etc.

Signed up for E+ pretty much on the day it went live and have had literally zero issues with it until a few weeks ago with the US Open and its 80 bajillion streams and college football all going on at once.  Ever since then on college football Saturdays it's been almost completely unusable.

Between this, the rate hikes and MLS moving to AppleTV+ next season I am pretty sure I will not renew (annual subscription) next time.

I pretty much only have problems with ESPN Plus when I want to watch KSU football. It has been mostly fine otherwise.

It’s still infinitely better than kstateHD.TV or whatever bullshit we had for tier 3 before ESPN+. I think it’s reasonable to call out that it still has semi frequent issues that make it less desirable than normal channels.

I have had more issues with ESPN+ than I ever had with kstatehd.tv, but I haven't had a ton of issues with either. I preferred it when we had kstatehd.tv because that was only ever one nonconference game per year, but now we get conference games on ESPN+.

For all sports other than football the production of ESPN+ and K-StateHD.TV is exactly the same thing.

There are low budget streaming providers that have better production and quality showing dirt track races in the middle of rough ridin' nowhere America, than ESPN+.

Adding to the intrigue, the Big Ten and Big 12 share the same media rights consultant, Endeavor, a global sports and entertainment company.

CBS Sports reported last month Endeavor was advising the Big 12 about whether it should add Pac-12 programs. Earlier this summer, CBS Sports reported the Big 12 was interested in the aforementioned "Four Corners" programs.

Since then, officials from Oregon and Washington have met with the Big Ten, according to multiple media reports. Earlier this month, Big 12 commissioner Brett Yormark said, for the first time publicly, he was interested in expanding to the Pac-12 footprint.

I don't care about Wazzu, but I kind of like Oregon State.  I think I've said that before.

Kind of disappointed they couldn't pull off beating USC.

I don't think that would be the case with a quartet from the PAC or a trio plus ND.
