If you’re a college football fan trying to watch tonight’s national title game, we hope you get ESPN as part of your cable package. Otherwise, you might be in trouble.
The ESPN app has been struggling all evening, presumably due to a high volume of traffic. It has crashed on people attempting to watch the game through the app.
As you can imagine, this is not going over well with those affected by the outage.
Anyone else having issues streaming the game on the ESPN app?

Can 1,000,000 of you get off the ESPN app so I can watch this game?

So is the ESPN App constantly crashing for anyone else?

Hey @espn , any way I could get the biggest game of the year to work on your app that you promoted would be streaming? If you could that would be great…thanks

These are just some of the reactions on social media. There are plenty we couldn’t use because they are quite NSFW.
Fans unable to see the action so far have just missed a bunch of great defense and punting. Neither team’s offense has hit its stride just yet.
The Worldwide Leader better get this all figured out soon though.
