Illustration for article titled WatchESPN Goes Down During One Of Biggest ESPN Broadcasts Ever

There's precedent for this: WatchESPN also went down during the USA-Germany World Cup match. We'll update whenever the streams go back up—if they ever do.

Update (7:30 p.m.): WatchESPN appears to be back up on computers and Xbox, but Roku still seems to be struggling (and, thus, mobile devices might still be down too).
