Summit Sportsman National Championship on ESPN3 Viewing Q&A

Tuesday, 31 January 2017

Below is a Q&A overview of details regarding the upcoming ESPN3 Live Stream broadcast of the Summit Sportsman National Championship and how to access the content on the WatchESPN app.  This should assist you in easily connecting to the broadcast this weekend from Immokalee Regional Raceway.

Who will be able to access WatchESPN content?

Users with a WatchESPN affiliated TV or internet provider must authenticate to gain access to live ESPN networks, events and replays.  

Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, PlayStation®4 and Android mobile users who do not subscribe to an affiliated video provider will have access to ESPN.com video on demand clips only.

To access the Summit Sportsman National Championship Live Stream you will:

Go to WatchESPN.com and click the blue “Watch Now” button on the top of the page OR you can click the Summit Sportsman National Championship Live Stream logo on IHRA.com

You will be directed to an ESPN log in interface (example below) where you will select your cable or satellite provider from the menu and then be directed to log in using your cable or satellite provider online account username and password.  (If you do not have an online account set up with your existing cable or satellite provider you should establish that account first before trying to use the WatchESPN log in interface).  You must be an ESPN subscriber with your existing cable or satellite provider to be able to access ESPN3’s Live Stream.                  

Programs onESPNrequire you to sign-in with your TV provider.


How do I start watching WatchESPN?

If you have already verified/authenticated with your TV provider, you will be able to navigate and watch all content that is available with your TV subscription.

Is there a cost to download the WatchESPN app?

WatchESPN is free. All users will have access to the video clips including highlights, trending videos, news and analysis. However, you must be a subscriber of a participating TV or internet service provider in order to have access to live ESPN networks, events and replays.

What time does the broadcast start?

Schedules will vary depending on the venue but most events will have coverage beginning at 1:00pm Saturday and 12 Noon on Sunday based on the time zone that the venue is located in.  The Live Stream coverage will begin with first round of eliminations both days.

Will the coverage time be bumped due to another event happening?

No. Unlike traditional TV coverage, Live Stream coverage does not get bumped.  There will be multiple events going on that are broadcast by ESPN3 at the same time.  All of them are live.
