    I do not currently have a cable subscription, only an internet subscription through Knology. But Comcast has a deal right now that is cheaper than my internet only price that includes internet and basic economy cable. This economy cable package does not include ESPN. Do i need to subscribe to a package with ESPN to access WatchESPN on my Apple TV? Or is a Comcast cable package enough?

    I would love to switch and pay less money while getting access to Watch ESPN.

    While I can't confirm by actually logging in, I think that's the point is that you have to have ESPN as part of your TV package.

    I have that same Comcast package, I get like 5 channels and HBO, no ESPN. I went to ESPN on my Apple TV and set it up and it says that I do not have the credentials to watch ESPN on my Apple TV. Hope this helps

    You should be able to watch ESPN 3 content but nothing on ESPN or espn2.

    You need to have ESPN as part of your cable subscription to access most of locked content in the app.
