Watch ESPN App Issue - "User Not Authorized" Error


Watch ESPN App Issue - "User Not Authorized" Error

I'm a U-200 subscriber, I get all of the ESPN channels on u-verse.  I recently moved to Kansas City from Chicago, and since the move I haven't been able to access Watch ESPN online.  I've tried from my laptop, phone and two different tablets.  I just get the User Not Authorized error.  Does anyone know how to fix this?  I don't have time to spend an hour on hold waiting for tech support.

Re: watch ESPN app not working with ATT

NONE OF THE ABOVE WORK. ATT has had this problem for years. When speaking to their help department, the fix was..."If you get television service with us then the app will work".....EXCELLENT. So, you mean all I need to do is pay for television service, which negates the need for the app. Thanks a pantload. While you're at it, can you email me a temporary password so I can get into my email account that I'm locked out of because I forgot the password? Thaaaaanks.

@joshuapepe   Did you try this one that seems to work:




The one that fixed @Traduce's problem above yours. Smiley Surprised



Please NO SD stretch-o-vision or 480 SD HD Channels
Need Help? PM ATT Uverse Care (all service problems)
ATT Customer Care(billing and all other problems)
Your Results May Vary, In My Humble Opinion

Re: Watch ESPN App Issue - "User Not Authorized" Error

Finally solved this. Discovered this completely by accident after spending two hours trying to figure it out.


For AT&T U-Verse- you have to create a special ID to access website like ESPN and HBOGo. 


So log into AT&Ts website go to: Profile--> Account Users-->Member ID or AT&T E-mail  and Select "Register for a member id".
