WatchESPN not working?

  • Hello,
    I just got back to Opera recently and I'm very pleased with the experience. However, I'm experiencing with difficulties with WatchESPN. When I visit http://espn.go.com/watchespn/ , I click on a link to the game, and the selection for which television provider I use doesn't show up. I have click to play enabled and put it on the exception list, and i tried with allowing all plugins as well. I put an exception for it in the pop up manager in the settings.

    I'm not sure if this was the right place to post, I could not find a 'report a site' feature for some reason.

  • Is Opera Turbo enabled ?, found in the main menu, fifth item up from the bottom. If so (ticked), disable it (remove the tick).

  • Thanks! that seems to have done the trick. Some other questions: Why does it work? Also I'm wondering, what exactly does opera turbo do? I know that it compresses things which benefits for people on slow connections, but what if I'm on a broadband fios connection? Thanks

  • should i not use it if i use a broadband connection?

  • As you have already said, it is designed to be used on slow connections and the compression ability can benefit some users who have a very limited cap on their internet traffic quota. But it's up to you whether you use it on a broadband connection, though it is not really recommended. As you have just experienced, it can limit what content you have access to and cause incompatibilities and can actually slow down the overall performance you experience through Opera.

    This is mainly down to the fact that you are routing you connection through a proxy server.

  • That makes sense. Thanks a lot, cheers!
