    Has anyone else had an issue with the ESPN radio station in the Radio app not working? It worked in the past (I listened to the college football championship game on it, so I know it was working in early January this year) but since about mid-march for me, I can never get it to load. The radio app itself works (I can listen to bloomberg, etc), but only the ESPN station no longer works (I don't subscribe to Apple Music, so I'm not sure if they moved it to part of the subscription package, but to be clear, I was never a subscriber & it did work earlier this year).

    I tried to listen to the Golden State Houston game last night & the station just won't load. If I go over to ESPN on safari or the ESPN app on my iPhone, it works fine.

    Would anyone be willing to see if the ESPN radio station works on their apple watch & let me know (Radio App->ESPN)? I'm trying to figure out if it's an issue on my watch or a station that no longer works at all (This happened with the NBC Sports station. It stopped working, but then it was removed a month or so later.

    Thanks in advance,

    Just tried it on my Series 4, it tries to load, connect airpods, then the > arrow comes up. tap on it, and it attempts to load, but then goes back to "not playing". I'd say it's broken..
