Cannot watch football on ESPN app

Jump to solution

I recently purchased a ROKU TV stick. I wanted to try something different from my Amazon FireTV sticks. I first tried the ROKU last Saturday and was unable to watch college football. I can get regular ESPN programing but the games themselves would not load. Why can I watch ESPN programming but not the games?

You'll need to contact either the channel provider or your subscription TV provider to inquire further. Licensing restrictions and/or technical issues may cause some content to be unavailable or to not play properly.
