    Default Watch ESPN app with Time Warner problems

    I am a Time Warner subscriber for cable and am trying to use the Watch ESPN app on my new Galaxy -- SCH-1535 with Android 4.1.1

    The app worked fine on my Incredible 2 and Rezound.

    With the Galaxy, I run the app and try to sign in as a Time Warner subscriber....I get an error on the page and never get a chance to enter my user name/password info.

    I had a similar issue. The time warner info takes a long time to load up. But eventually it will load up and allow you to login. Did you also install the adobe air app as well?

    No, my Time Warner Screen never loads...the screen goes black, but "behind" the black, you can see an error message saying the "Webpage is not available"...and the URL is in a day-glo purple font.
    If I choose one of the other providers - Verizon Fios, for example -- the log in page opens fine. (Of course, I can't log in through these other providers since I don't have them!)

    Well I'm not sure what to tell you. It works for me. Then again I have a galaxy nexus.

    Yeah, my problem only started when I switched from the Rezound...so don't know if it's a Galaxy S3 problem, or a Android 4.1.1 problem.....or maybe the Time Warner sign in screen requires Flash?

    It may be a gs3 issue since it works fine on my galaxy nexus and I have time warner as well.

    When you go to sign in, you're redirected to TW's servers, so ESPN is correct that the problem is most likely on their end. I don't have TW, so I can't test myself, but does their login page utilize Flash? That would explain why folks with older devices are able to connect while newer ones cannot.

    One other thing to try that I don't think has been mentioned here: To those with problems, have you tried logging in from mobile network AND home wifi (assuming your home wifi is provided by TW as well)? Maybe it's a DNS issue?

    Ok. I think I have figured it out. At least for mine and it seems to be the same issue with twc666. If I use my mobile network, then I can never get to the login screen. If I connect through a wifi connection, it will work every time. I tried it twice both ways, to verify the results.

    That's weird, but it works for me that way too...if I disable the mobile network and go through wi-fi, it loads the Time Warner log in page....mind you, my home internet is NOT Time Warner!

    So, loading the page with wifi loads the page, loading with the mobile networks leads to an error. This makes no sense to me...

    And it doesn't really solve my problem, because I want to be able to use Watch ESPN on my phone when I DON'T have wifi....if I have wifi, I would use my iPad!!

    On further examination, by logging in using wifi, then shutting down wifi and restarting the mobile network, I was able to then make the app work on strictly the mobile network.
    It "remembered" that I had already logged on successfully....so it's a workable work around...at least temporarily!

    But that brought up another problem I have with this phone....after shutting off the mobile network and turning off wifi, I had to restart the phone to restablish the 4G connection. I tried turning Mobile data on and off, but it couldn't connect. The same thing happened earlier tonight..I was on the subway and when I got off it still couldn;t connect to 4G (or 3G or anything, actually), until I restarted the phone...

    This sounds like a dns issue on Verizon's mobile network then....

    The Galaxy Note 2 doesn't support Flash and thats why it doesn't work. I know we can sideload Flash but that way the Watch Espn app doesn't see it. Why, I don't know.

    This is a Galaxy S3 forum, not Note 2, although since Jelly Bean, the S3 doesn't support Flash either. That is not the problem here, however, as it was confirmed by several here that if they are connected to wifi the logon page loads, just not when using mobile data, which indicates an issue getting to the site (such as routing or DNS), rather than a Flash issue. If the issue were strictly dependent on Flash, then it wouldn't work over wifi either.

    Watch ESPN app will work without Flash loaded at all -- I use it on my Nexus 10 all the time, and it has never had Flash. Some questioned that perhaps the login site for TW utilized Flash, and therefore was preventing it from opening, however that has been proven to not the be the case.

    We have none of the cable providers in my **** ant town. It would be mighty nice of someone to let me use the user//pw info to watch ESPN the app.

    same thing happening here with NCAA Live app. It think the TWC page is timing out actually and that's why we get the error. Oddly enough, if I keep turning the phone from portrait to landscape and back to portrait several times, it eventually connects to the TWC login page. I haven't figured out yet the exact timing or sequence and it's trial and error but eventually it works. I enter the data on the login page and then it takes a few tries there as well. I keep hitting the submit button several times. It may crash and go back to "page not found" and I have to start over again. I think it is some type of time out problem with TWC. Keep trying, eventually it will work. Works like a charm on WiFi but I struggle on over the air.

    Hey everyone......... This is a problem with the timer on the application itself (For the Note/2, S3 and S4 devices) due to the implementation of IPv6. And time warner does not have an IPv6 resolution for their domain:
    Samsung devices follow the next steps on DNS queries
    If IPv6 is available in the device (and network), DNS stack follows:
    1. Sends IPv6 query to DNS server1 and waits for response or 5 seconds timeout
    2. In case of timeout sends IPv6 query to DNS server2 and waits for response or 5 seconds timeout
    3. In case of timeout retries IPv6 query to DNS server1 and waits for response or 5 seconds timeout
    4. In case of timeout retries IPv6 query to DNS server2 and waits for response or 5 seconds timeout

    This means that if DNS server does not provide any response, the device waits totally 20 seconds before sending IPv4 query. Usually 20 seconds timeout does not happen as the DNS server sends an empty response in case the server has no IPv6 resolution information (Like in this case!) so when the device attemepts IPv4 the aplication has already timed out and buumm "there is your error"

    So if you all want to have this resolved give a call to the app developer and ask them to extend the timer on that App!

    Hope this helps
