Yesterday, ESPN began notifying subscribers that the WatchESPN app is going away June 30th 2019. If you want to watch ESPN content on your mobile device you will need to download the ESPN app.
Slowly ESPN has been adding features of the WatchESPN app to the ESPN app. Now it seems that ESPN has decided to end support for its long running WatchESPN app. The good news is all the features you’ve enjoyed in the WatchESPN app are now available in the ESPN app.
Some time ago, ESPN updated the WatchESPN app on Roku, Fire TV, and Apple TV to be just the ESPN app. Now it seems that mobile devices are getting the same treatment.
You can continue to use the WatchESPN app until June 30th 2019. At that time the app will stop working.
