Its a crap app. Went to youtube tv and can watch everything no buffering. Watch espn doesnt buffer on my IPad but on roku or apple tv it does, and no idea why.

It could be your device as well

I have buffering issues through Apple TV and directly through my tv’s apps. No issues at all running it through my Xbox, pc or iPhone.

Ultimately, I think the espn app just works better on certain devices. It could be some devices need to be updated, or certain devices are affected more by interference than others.

The app itself is bad, and ESPN's hosting ISP does not have infrastructure to support more than 10 people streaming data at the same time. Maybe the have little incentive to upgrade the size of their pipe...
