Streamers unhappy as WatchESPN down for Rose Bowl

BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — Fans looking to watch the Rose Bowl on their tablets or computers are getting an error message instead of the WatchESPN stream.

The cable network's online feed of the first College Football Playoff game went down on Thursday night, leaving anyone looking to watch the game anywhere besides a television out of luck.

The stream feeds video services on tablets, phones, computers and other streaming devices like console game systems or Roku boxes.

ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz says the network is aware of the issues and is working to resolve them as soon as possible. He says they are sorry for the inconvenience.

The network echoed that statement on Twitter, where incensed viewers were sounded off on the issue.
