Unless you have residual income kicking around, why would you pay more for a nearly worthless service that says "ESPN" on it instead of just using a regular phone to go to sports websites!!??
Hold on; wait... does this mean my Stuart Scott Cable Service is going to get discontinued???
In any case, not surprised they're discontinuing the service, but I figured there would be enough ESPN humping people out there who would have gotten it.
Its just dumb..how much does that phone cost plus service??
I can get ESPN anywhere there is a wireless connection..which is everywhere in the universe
The original ESPN Mobile phone, just the phone, was $500!!!!. Can you believe it? They lowered that of course because people (most people anyone, I'm sure a few boneheads shelled it out) obviously weren't that dumb; to $199. The service was roughly $20 to $50 more per month than other service plans that let you visit any sports website; with ESPN Mobile, you could only access ESPN content.
"Unlimited" access to content really meant 35 mb downloadable per month (as in, viewable) and the voice service was lousy, at best.
Yeah, I really don't see a single reason to get it unless you're like that guy in the commercial who hangs out in front of ESPN studios trying to get an autograph from, of all people, Kenny Mayne.
Don't be that guy.
