Re: Brighthouse/WatchESPN dilemma
said by caps321:Sorry you must be a BHN subscriber.
I'm an internet only subscriber to Brighthouse and have Uverse for television. Around September 2011 ESPN3 switched to WatchESPN and the main difference I can tell is the ability to watch ESPN, ESPN2 channels on the service. My main reason for viewing is ESPN3's broadband 'only' channels.
Since the change, I get a message saying I need Brighthouse television. I did manage to have it working for a day by using Remote Access with my AT&T credentials. However, that was cut off as well and now gives me a message saying I can't sign in on that website.
I understand ESPN wants you to pay for the channels to watch them online. (Even though I only want to watch ESPN3 content.) However, does it really matter if I pay another provider rather than having them bundled?
Is it possible to get some sorta waiver since I do in fact pay for ESPN and if so.. Who would I contact? ESPN's 1800 number, Brighthouse, or AT&T?

at&t doesnt have a deal with them to offer the channel, brighthouse does. Therefore you have to have brighthouse tv if you want that channel unless att eventually works out the deal to carry the channel as well.
