If you love ESPN but are angry because Comcast won't let you watch it on your phone through the WatchESPN app, your luck just changed. The most recent update to the app fixes that exact issue: it now allows Comcast customers who get ESPN as part of the TV package watch the channel on their smartphone or tablet.


That's really the only major difference with this update - aside from the always-included bug fixes, of course. If you already have the app installed, you can pull the update now. But, if you're a Comcast customer who uninstalled it in a fit of rage after realizing that it was basically worthless to you, hit the widget below. Everything's gonna be alright.

      Everyone sucks. I find Comcast the best option in my area (San Francisco). Of course, I'd opt in for Google Fiber any time, but all the other options that are available suck compared to Comcast.

        I have Comcast now, after I moved away from an area with Verizon FiOS. The picture quality is superior to Comcast's, in SD & HD. I, too, am waiting for some Google Fiber goodness!

      I pay $19.99/month for 35 mbps download/5 mbps upload and HD cable TV with HBO. I have no complaints. Very reliable connection for me as well. My homeowner's association pays for the cable tv, so all I pay for is internet. Nothing around here matches it yet... not until Google Fiber shows up ;)

    One downside to upgrading to Jelly Bean was losing flash. I could still use Espn3.com through the browser, so there wasn't a big deal. Fortunately, only baseball is on right now (which I have mlb.tv.. and the quality is so much better than espn3.com). There wasn't any regret with upgrading to 4.1.1, but this just made my day!

          I think its my ROM, Google Play Movies aren't working either. I can't play any video it seems. Going to try a new ROM today... decisions, decisions

    Strange that only a few providers support this. No surprise that 2/3 of ratings are only 1 or 2 stars.
