Default ESPN3 question

I have Dish on TV now, and I'm trying to figure out how to use ESPN3 (Or Watch ESPN, or whatever it's called now)


It asks me for my ISP. Which is Time Warner, but I don't have T.V. with Time Warner. What do I do? (Note: When I sign in to my Time Warner account it never loads the page that sets up ESPN3, so there's also that)

Please don't tell me I'm SOL....

I think your ISP is what counts, you might want to call TWC about it

Default Re: ESPN3 question

The way I understand it, WatchESPN allows you all the content of the ESPN channels over the Internet. The access to that content is available based on your television provider. I think television providers have to work out a deal with ESPN to allow their customers access to WatchESPN, similar to how you log into HBOGO. Right now, Dish isn't one of the providers available for WatchESPN content. ESPN3 is their online content and is available to people based on their ISP and if the content is not available on any of the television channels. Not sure if this is 100% correct, just what I've experienced and how I understand it all to work.

I believe this to be correct today. Originally ESPN3 was ISP based. Today WatchESPN is TV provider based.

Yea it all depends on who you get your TV service with. You set up an account through them and then you can access it with any internet provider.

You must have the sports package with TWC cable. That is channels 500-525. Download the app to your computer or mobile device and set up an account. If you are not using TWC as your digital TV service provider, along with the sports package, (an extra 10.00 a month), you cannot use ESPN3.

I had to have time Warner Internet and cable for them to let me access espn3. With just Internet service, they would not grant you access. It's a scam because all you need is Internet service with other providers.

Well, that sucks a lot. And there's no way I'm going to Time warner just to have it.

Dish actually has internet now (Satellite, too slow for my taste), but it isn't on the list of available ISP's. Maybe I'll just have to wait.

Not exactly. I have U-Verse and I get WatchESPN. Any of ESPN's cable partners can purchase it for their subscribers. Individuals may not subscribe though.

Too late now, but should have gone with DirecTV. I'm also covered because of the fact I have FIOS. Can't believe that Dish sells something that doesn't have ESPN. That alone would be worth $20 to me. Then you get about 9 games a year on the ESPN's. Living up here in Jersey, the games you get on PPV I get over ESPN3 on the laptop & run the HDMI into the 80"TV. Keep in mind, all of this changes in 2014 & right now, the only sign-up for the old PPV games are AT&T U-Verse. I really can't imagine that DirecTV will not sign up. We get the BTN for free already & you know ESPN will force them to take it. If not, Fios here I come. MSG, which we also get for free covers the current SEC Network in the Jersey/New York area for football only

1. Directv wanted a ridiculous price
2. FIOS is not available to me.
3. Yes, I have ESPN on T.V., I am simply trying to figure out how to get it to work since it asks for my ISP, whom I do not have TV with.

I'm betting Dish's internet service won't be on the list of available ISPs anytime soon because of the lawsuit they brought, and effectively lost, against ESPN. They pretty much have to offer the channels and packages for TV or else they'll lose customers. Any of the extras though (WatchESPN for TV customers or ESPN3 for internet customers) are off the table as they want to tell ESPN to go f**k themselves.

Your options are to get a new ISP that provides ESPN3, stay with TWC internet and add their cable tv service like Spurred said, or find 3rd party sites like suggested by Spur's Addiction.
