This is a subscription service so the live channels wont work unless you subscribe.
Also I don't like to criticize emilsvennesson after such a great addon has been made in such a short space of time but it should also be noted that this service will not work with a US IP,
I'm not sure of all the countries its available in but I'm pretty sure its a pan European service, the website will show the non European countries where its also available .

Quote:I haven't tested forwarding in archived games, but that's nothing I have control over I'm afraid. The addon only resolves the URL from ESPN Player, and the actual playback is being done by Kodi/ffmpeg. Have you tried the same game on an iPad/iPhone and verified that the same problem doesn't exist there?

Tommorow I will test it with my Ipad.

Only games, which are cutting by ESPN have the problem in second half. The counter start with 0:0:0.

In non cutting games forwarding is no problem.

BTW there are the cfb Playoffs and bowls in the college Pass. And only ESPN Conference Finals?

March madness?

Other Sports like Lacrosse, Hockey or Little League?

I can't comment on other sports as I pretty much only use this for football, but if last season is anything to go by the College Football Playoffs and National Championship game will be on this service as well as many major bowl games (here's hoping I'm watching The Buckeyes in Tampa via this addon in January Smile )

Think anything available on ESPN, ABC and the SEC Network that is available in the US.

Thank you sooooo much for this add on. Works perfect. Just the forward issue from ESPN. Not sure how they handle this.

For the Bowl Games they will not show the Cure Bowl (CBS), Foster Farms Bowl (FOX), Arizona Bowl (Campus Insiders). All other games will be on the ESPN Player. Including the National Championship Game.

Here you can see which games are on the Player. And they show some more FCS and Division II and III games.
FBS

FCS
http://www.espn.co.uk/college-football/f.../81/week/5
Div II/III
http://www.espn.co.uk/college-football/f.../35/week/5

This overview is also very good as alternative.

http://mattsarzsports.com/Season/Content...-ayNiQjXyk

The majority of NCAA fixtures broadcast in the USA on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, ESPNews, ABC and ESPNU will be shown live and on-demand on ESPN Player. EXCLUSIVE: ACC Network Extra and SEC Network+ college football fixtures will be available from the start of the 2016 season.

The SEC Network, ESPNU and Longhorn Network are also available as full 24/7 linear channels on ESPN Player. These channels are available as simulcast (i.e. as live) and not available on-demand. Certain fixtures (specifically from ESPNU) may be offered as a standalone fixture and could be available on-demand, please check the schedules for more information.

Thanks for this, replays of Big Ten games at least work in here in the UK as well as having English commentary Smile.
The quality isn't the greatest but if I get to view the odd Buckeye game I can't view any other way this service could be a goer for me,
for example there was absolutely no way for me to view the recent Ohio State-Oklahoma game here in the UK other than searching out dodgy streams (luckily a good friend in the US let me use their cable login to use Fox Sports Go for it),
so I now have an alternative to look to for those games I cannot get by paying for them Smile

About Eversport.tv

They show all Pac-12 Network and Big Ten Network games for free. Also some Big Sky games.

They will also show Big10 Network College Football games for free. Pac-12 also but not for free.

They try to get a better feed for the Big Ten games.

EDIT: Pac-12 Football not free anymore.

Thank you SOOO MUCH for developing this. frankly, works better than anything I have seen on the ESPN player. One request would be to be able to filter by sports.

Thank you!
