      Just wondering when and if ESPN3 is going to come to DirecTV? We're big college basketball fans and checking the schedule we noticed that some of the games are going to be shown on ESPN3.

      ESPN3 is just an online service. It used to be called ESPN 360, but they renamed the service a couple of years ago. You can watch it for free at ESPN's website here: http://espn.go.com/watchespn/player/_/source/espn3/ or watch it through an Xbox 360 gaming system if you have an Xbox Live account.

      They're not just an online service. ESPN3 requires an agreement between your ISP and ESPN in order for you to watch. This may coincide with a cable TV carriage agreement (Time Warner I know for sure.)

      With regard to the original question, the more relevant question would be whether you can watch ESPN 3 with your current ISP.

      This doesn't help. When attempting to verify access to WatchESPN access to ESPN3, we have only these choices:
      BendBroadband
      Bright House Communications
      Comcast XFINITY
      Midcontinent Communications
      Time Warner Cable
      Verizon FiOS TV

      That's it. No DirecTV... dead end.

      DirecTV doesn't support ESPN3. DirecTV still hasn't made a deal with ESPN3 to provide it to us.
      This is ticking me off because I'm missing a GRC race right now.

      I have Time Warner Cable for my ISP but they don't provide ESPN3 unless you have cable TV service with them as well. I have Directv and I don't anticipate that changing any time soon! I used to have Windstream for my ISP and they provided ESPN3, but their service in our area was too slow for the various streaming media I use, so I switched to Time Warner. More "customer first" mentality from one of our media giants!

      I just checked ESPN3 website. You can put in your zip code and your current TV provider (not necessarily your ISP) and it will tell you whether you have access. It says DirecTV subscribers do not currently have access. As mentioned below, you might have access anyway if you also have an XBOX live account or a Cable TV account that does offer access to ESPN3. It then gives you a box to enter your name and email address to send a message to DirecTV to tell them you wish they were subscribed to ESPN3.

      DirectTV has a college bb package it wants its subscribers to buy. Espn3 access would work against this.

      XBOX Live does not give you access to ESPN3 live sports unless your ISP already does.

      Unfortunately, Windstream has stopped providing access to ESPN3, as of today (March 1, 2013). The Windstream representative that I spoke with indicated that it's because "ESPN3 will no longer broadcast live events". I spoke with ESPN and they indicated it's not true. So I don't know if there's some misunderstanding between the 2 companies, or it may be that since Windstream (at least in South Carolina) can provide discounted bundles with Dish Network, perhaps that comes into play. I realize that ESPN3 will black out some events that are shown on ESPN/ESPN2/ESPNU in the local market, but they assured me that no changes are planned. I've emailed Windstream asking them to reconsider; if anyone who reads this is with Windstream and is disappointed, please consider contacting them and perhaps we can convince them to change their mind.

      just missed the second half of the BYU Virginia game because ESPN switched coverage to 3, just like they did last year. If my hundred bucks a month isn't enough to get me access to ESPN 3 and Direct doesn't give a damn, its time to switch to Comcast.

      It's through your internet provider. If you have DirecTv through Verizon then you will select Verizon and enter your acct info and it should work.

      Wrong. You don't have DirecTV "through" Verizon--it's a satellite service. Verizon MAY allow you to receive espn3, but that's irrespective of whether you have DirecTV. And Time Warner cable ISP will NOT let you view espn3 if you have DirecTV--they require you to have their (TWC's) tv package with ESPN before they'll stream it for you even though you have the TWC ISP service.

      I have had friends tell me that if you do not get the TV service with your ISP in some cases, they (the ISP) will not give you access to ESPN3.com. I'm not sure if this is fact or fiction? I get TV service currently through AT&T U-Verse as well as Internet and we don't have an issue with accessing ESPN3.

      DirecTV does not support ESPN3 which bummed me out because I used to watch it on my phone app. Time Warner Cable does support it however.

      Since DirecTV doesn't support ESPN3.com / ESPN3, I guess the best "end-around" is to simply DVR the live ESPN programming to watch. Not as good as ESPN3.com, since you miss out on the games that aren't broadcast on the lower-tier packages with DirecTV, but at least something for the consumer who wants to watch ESPN on a mobile device such as an iPad or Android tablet.

      You need to research the ? before you try to put it off on something else . You have to have a tv provider to watch espn3 and a lot of other sites.
      I can't get directv apps to work either so I can't watch it on my tablet.For that much $ you should be able to watch it anywhere

      Actually, Time Warner will only support a cable account, not an internet account.
