    Sorry if this is old news, but the Watch ESPN app is now working. Went into it last night and was able to get to the select your provider screen. I was able to watch all of the ESPN channels thru the app.

    Nice. Don't you have to pay for that service though?

    edit: Wait you need a supported provider. Stupid Comast isn't one....:frown:

    I received an email late on Monday from the app developer at Disney/ESPN stating the app had been updated for 4.0 ICS. I installed the update and now WatchESPN works GREAT on my Galaxy Nexus.

    Dezymond, if your cable/internet provider gives you access, then you can install it on your phone. Once installed, launch the app, go to settings then select your provider. You will then need to log into your cable/internet provider to approve the app for your phone. I'm a Verizon FIOS customer.

    Good luck with the dreaded Comcast. They battle with ESPN all of the time over the fees that ESPN charges for each of their channels.

    Although I was very pissed that ESPN had not updated the app for 4.0 ICS and missed many bowl games over the holidays (while not at home to watch), now the good news. Today is a rematch of Real Madrid vs Barcelona, on Verizon Fios it's on GOL TV, but on the WatchESPN app I can watch it on ESPN3 or ESPN Deporres (since I won't be home to watch on GOL TV).

    It's weird that I have Comcast broadband internet and Watch ESPN works fine on my laptop, but won't work on my Nexus...Comcast ins't even an option in the drop down box

    I get basic Comcast and broadband internet through my HOA fees, but I actually use Directv as my satellite provider...IS it based off of your internet provider or your cable/satellite provider?

    Just did a live chat for the hell of it. The rep said they're looking into getting WatchESPN support "soon" and would let me know once a sure date is given to them.

    Freakin Comcast....

    Does it work with time Warner? Probably not.

    I have the NFL app which is only for Verizon customers on androids. That's great.
