Live streaming of sports is no longer available

I've been on Dish for 15 years. Before HD was even available in my area. 

For the past 10 years, I was able to log into ESPN with my Dish account to watch football when traveling.

That is no longer available unless my receiver is online. I don't want my receiver, I want to log in to ESPN with my 110 dollar a month Dish account.

 

I am one of the many that are unplugging from Dish.

 

Just as soon as I get home.

 

Ya'll can take your tracking/spying/internet hacking crap out of my house now.

 

See ya', Dish....good riddance....

If you’re watching on the ESPN website or APP, there would be no way to watch your receiver. If you’re watching through DishAnywhere, it would require your receiver to be online, as that is place shifting.

The ESPN website doesn't allow me to watch when I sign in because I get an error that my receiver is not online.

 

DishAnywhere doesn't allow me to watch because I get an error message that my receiver isn't online.

 

My receiver has never been online, I will never have a receiver online. 

 

Any more suggestions!?!

The ESPn website would have nothing to do with the receiver at all. It would be Disney’s server and the only thing you’re getting from Dish is the credentials for what you’re subscribed to. I would contact ESPn about that, as Dish wouldn’t have anything beyond that authentication.

I'll just start using my AT&T Uverse connection. 

 

I don't need to contact ESPN about the Dish software.

 

The Dish website would not let me watch CBS, ESPN, ABC, etc. 

 

The Dish website !!!   Error message is my receiver is not online.

 

Any more suggestions !?!

Hello, sfcpace! We would be more than happy to take a look into this with you. To use DISH Anywhere, we would need to connect the DISH receiver to the internet and keep it connected to the internet.
