Updated to correct spelling on Sep 7, 2017.
I was not going to watch this but the voice in my head said, "There is absolutely no way ESPN/Dsney[sic] is going to create an |app| that allows live events in the market someone wants to watch". NBC sports live app is the benchmark that fox sports and ESPN x 4 channels can't match. All NFL, pro Baseball, pro Hockey and the list goes on has absolute control what gets on an app. Xfinity struck a deal where "In Home" & "on the Go" control what content goes to mobile, tablet, desktop and online. Sports is the most blacked out content -- "In home only" with some out of market games in "Go". i have been beating the stuffings out of these apps -- only 2 work as advertised; NBC mobile app and xfinity stream. Fox sports works most of the time but is worthless for auto racing live. ESPN app lasted 5 minutes on my mobile devices.

Why do you add a "d" when you shorten advert? It's "ad"
