Kansas, ESPN Apologize for ESPN+ Glitch

The Big 12 and ESPN rolled out ESPN+ during Big 12 media days and while it’s mostly been a success for the conference, it has had its problems at times, like this past weekend for KU-UMKC.

Last Saturday’s broadcast on Big 12 Now/ESPN+ featured several moments where the picture cut in and out or the images on the screen were hard to view.

KU and ESPN on Sunday each released statements explaining the glitch.

ESPN said in a statement, “Our production of the Kansas City vs. Kansas game on Saturday night from Sprint Center experienced isolated intermittent transmission issues that occasionally impacted the audio and video feed. We apologize for the issues and their impact to fans.”

Kansas Athletics followed up with the a similar apology, pinpointing ESPN’s hiring of a “production truck” as part of the problem.

“We consulted with ESPN who confirmed the issues were isolated to this particular game production,” KU’s statement read. “We apologize for the inconvenience.”

Frankly, it’s still worth it for Big 12 fans to get on ESPN+ now for a reasonable price of $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year. You can sign up here through out link below.
