    I’m having the same problem on my fire stick. It works on everything else and I can log into spectrum on other apps.

    Hello @JJ17 and welcome to the Spectrum Community!

    What types of troubleshooting have you tried to resolve this issue? Have you rebooted the modem and router and uninstalled and reinstalled the app to see if that helps at all?

    Thank you.

    I’ve restarted and rebooted the fire stick, deleted the app and checked my log in. I do not have access to the modem and router because I live in a apartment building that includes cable and internet in the rent, so I’m only given the password to those.

    Hello again @JJ17

    Are you receiving any sort of error message when you attempt to log into ESPN?

    Thank you.

    No, it just sends me back to the sign in page

    Good evening @JJ17

    When it comes to accounts that are provided to tenants, you wouldn't be able to login to third party apps because the account belongs to the property owner and not each individual. If you do have your own account, let us know and we can check for you by sending a private message to get your info. But given your earlier comment about the apartment building providing your services, I believe that is why you wouldn't be able to login to third party apps.

    Good to meet you :)

    I can log into other apps fine, it’s just ESPN I can’t log into.

    I apologize for the frustration. We have been advised that our app team is aware of the ESPN issue and they are working on getting a fix in place as quickly as possible.

    Is this still an issue? We can't login here either.

    i have the same problem. Is it related to the reCaptcha requirement? It doesn’t come up in the fire stick browser and then I get returned to the sign in page.

    I have the exact same problem here in Florida. Signed up for ESPN+ and have Spectrum and ESPN+ askes me to log in to Spectrum and I show password and 100% typing in correct email address and password. It goes to the website but it just blanks out the screen, then pops back up to the Spectrum log in screen and have to do it all over again.... and again.... and again. Have uninstalled and reinstalled the app, rebooted my Firestick, tried everything. I can log into Spectrum thru ESPN+ on my computer and on my cell phone, but ABSOLUTELY will not log into it on my Firestick.

    Actually if on my computer I go to (the website the ESPN+ app takes you to in order to log in to Spectrum) you just get the Spectrum logo and a never-ending spinning circle.

    When I try to watch ESPN on my Firestick and need to log into Spectrum to authenticate it acts like it is working and then reverts back to Spectrum sign in page. I have verified password is correct, reloaded ESPN app, etc. etc. I have seen in previous posts that this has been a recent problem. Has anyone else been having this problem? Is there a fix?

    The app authenticates to your account using information from the modem. Restarting the modem refreshes the authentication and often resolves failed log in attempts.

    I'm still having this same issue (and have been for months). When is this going to be corrected?

    Hello @DAub205

    Welcome to our community! I'm sorry to hear you're having issues logging in to ESPN. If the troubleshooting mentioned in the thread is not working, if you have access to a computer or mobile device that you can log in to ESPN on, you can link your ESPN login to your Spectrum account there and those credentials should follow you over to the Firestick once you login with your ESPN account information.

    Restarting the modem doesn't work. Uninstalling and reinstalling the app doesn't work. Resetting the fire stick doesn't work. It is the same issue on the ESPN app and the ABC app. It asks you to log in to your provider and when you select Spectrum you just get a blank screen.

    It has been going on for months. At least since September. Nobody seems to care or is concerned.

    Hi @pagoda! Welcome to our community.

    Are you only having this issue on the Firestick?

    Have you tried linking your ESPN account following Renee's instructions above?

    Is the software on your Firestick up to date?

    Can you try a factory reset on your Firestick? You will need to set everything back up on it as if it were new.

    How do I link my account as Renee suggests? On my phone it just spins too.
