Bump for greatness.
Try a different browser and/or update flash player. I accessed it fine last night from my mac with hotspot enabled. I think I was using Firefox. It was showing me as being located in NY.
I had to change my browser to Firefox in order to get it to work, so that probably is the problem. As someone mentioned earlier firstrow sports will probably have a link to the game for those that dont have ESPN3 access. Since I cancelled my DirecTV last summer I use this for most of my sports watching. Have yet to find a game that I wanted to see that wasn't available...and its free.
Just a heads up on FIrstrow .It tends to be littered with adult popups when you first pull it up if that matters to you.
(In my best George Bluth voice) And THAT'S why...you DON'T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS. Didn't occur to me to check if it was available for Mac.
It sounds like my initial guess was right on the system internet settings. Still stuck in class and can't verify just yet.
As for the Mac users, are you saying it didn't work with Safari but did when you switched to Firefox? That would be strange since we're talking about Flash. Then again, Flash sucks, so anything's possible.
Please, please, please, please, please listen to this man.
bump, going to try this
I'd love if this could be locked for this weekend. I'll be out of town at the game and my wife will prob need these instructions and the cell service in BDS will be...well...

god bless u man i was hopin someone would do this thank u so much..i have bought evey game 4 yrs.but im layed off now its hard ..
Several people referenced macs. Most newer ones have a mini hdmi out port. If so, get the mini hdmi to hdmi cable and the game will show up on an hdtv if you have one. Probably obvious but just throwing it out there.
Okay, I was wrong. It doesn't modify the system proxy settings. It also doesn't create a new network connection. I'm not entirely sure how it works but clearly it's at a very low level. That being said, I had no trouble signing into AT&T and loading an ESPN3 video through the proxy in Qatar, even with Firefox.
For the people on Windows who are having trouble, I've had a lot of success using a program called UltraSurf in the past. It will set up your internet connection options to use your computer as a proxy, so if you use IE or Chrome, you'll be good to go. In Firefox, you'll need to set it to use the system proxy settings (Options > Advanced > Network > Settings... > Use system proxy settings). No clunky install/uninstall procedure - just a simple executable you can delete at any time - and best of all, no ads.
You can also do this yourself using a tunneling program like Tor, but it's extremely complex and technical, and hardly worth it with tools like the aforementioned available.
That port is actually Mini DisplayPort, which is similar to Mini HDMI, but I believe (not sure) also carries analog signals. This is important because there is a Mini HDMI standard but you won't find it on a Mac. There do exist Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapters that carry digital video and audio and this is easily your best option for an HDTV. If you want it for the game tomorrow, you can drop by your nearest Apple Store and probably find an officially endorsed one to pay out unfortunate orifices for. Otherwise, you can get a much better deal on Amazon.

Ya know what really grinds my gears?
ESPN is advertised as "Powered by AT&T". Yet, I cannot watch it on my internet (U-Verse) that is powered by AT&T...
OR, if you have Apple TV at home, like I do, just airplay it to your HDTV. Works like a charm.
I assume charter has espn3 right?
“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”
Nobody "carries" ESPN3. Charter may have partnered with them to allow you access to ESPN3.com with your Charter login credentials.
Didnt know if u could answer but does anyone know if the game can be watched through xbox 360? I have added the espn app but there isn't an app for espn 3. Anyone know if the game can be watched through this app?
You are correct. And the link is already up -
Appreciate the info, gonna try it out today. RTR
does anyone else have a stupid popup at the top of your browser after donwnloading the shield?
