UPDATE:  It’s not happening… yet

When ESPN3 was announced for Xbox LIVE many sports fans were ecstatic. However there was a large group of fans who were left with nothing but frustration and disappointment. While Time Warner Cable and Bright House customers could access the still access the app, live streaming for current games were disabled.

In order to enjoy the full experience ESPN3 on XBL had to offer, you needed to get an access code from your ISP. Until recently this has been impossible for Time Warner and Bright House customers. Microsoft stated back in December 2010, that the full service would be available to those customers “soon”. As you can see, that’s clearly not the case until now. It only took close to a year, but Time Warner Cable customers can now enjoy the full experience ESPN3 has to offer. By heading over to the authentication website you can log in to your Time Warner Cable account and you will be granted with an access code.

Unfortunately for Bright House customers, no agreement has been made between the companies. Nine months later and counting, those customers are still without full access.

  1. I got authenticated though time Warner… But still can pull up live events. Getting a E09 error when I try to watch them

  2. Wondering what your original source was for this as I have found nothing on official TWC sites about it launching.  How did you know the authentication site was working today?

    • What is going on here?  This is very strange.  Anyone have any updated info?  I hate these guys,  only reason I got an xbox was to watch espn3 on it because I figured it was easier than hooking up my computer every time.  

  4. I’m having the exact same issuesw.  It’s unbelievable how hard twc pushes against internet video streaming.  I’m about to switch to dsl if they dont get this addressed.  College football is too close!

  5. I got into an online chat session with a TWC rep and they confirmed that this rumor is false and there is no estimated date for the release of ESPN3 for Xbox Live for any TWC customers.

  7. What’s with the new update for the ESPN app on Xbox. I just had to update my app and it looks different. I wasn’t asked to put in a code but I can’t tell if it is capable of getting live games. Anybody know what I’m talking about?
