ESPN App VPN Issue

The last couple of weeks whenever I use the ESPN app it knocks off my VPN (IPVANISH). Not a big issue but I do have to remember to reconnect when I’m finished. I tried split tunnel but same result. Thought?

If you subscribe to like Spectrum, Hulu etc, you don’t need a VPN to connect the app

It is weird, an app shouldn’t disconnect your VPN. While you should likely split tunnel the ESPN app anyway, nothing in a streaming box/stick should open and kick you out of your VPN. Assuming you have the most updated versions of everything, the ESPN app, IPV and your box OS?

Yeah. Everything is up to date and the VPN never disconnect for anything else. Like I said it’s not a big issue but I just found it unusual.

Is espn app different from espn+? I have espn + and use my vpn (ExpressVPN) server at a different location to prevent my favorite teams broadcasts from being subject to blackout. I used to have IPVanish several years ago but found some of their server locations had problems doing this.

I completely agree with you, while in theory, the VPN should do its job, many times is the individual server within the VPN that becomes a problem. I’ve had this happen with several apps,especially

Yes the app is different. It is free if it’s part of your tv package. I use it mostly for SEC secondary sports.
Appreciate the reply.
