Key Takeaways

  • Possible causes of this error include server issues, high app traffic causing connection problems, system malfunction, improper app installation, or accidental deletion of app data.
  • Solutions include checking the official servers, verifying internet connection stability, and restarting the device and router.
  • If none of these solutions work, contact ESPN customer help and support.

  1. Check Internet
  2. Restart Router
  3. Update System
  4. Restart The Device
  5. Uninstall The App

Check The Servers Of ESPN

There might be a chance that the error code 1008 has temporarily occurred due to server problems. It includes the server being under maintenance or being repaired. So, the best thing I recommend is checking the servers using Downdetector.

Sign Out And Sign In Again

Another possible solution I found is to eliminate the error code 1008 by signing out of the app, as it would delete the bug or the problematic files. Then sign in again after a few moments since it is possible that the app needs to be refreshed as it may have lost its connection with the servers. My teammate mentioned fixing the error using this method, and it seems others on Reddit have also found success with this approach.

Check Your Firewall Setting

You can log into your router by opening its configuration page and typing onto a browser window. You will need a username and password to enter, so ensure you know that.

It is usually “admin” for both. Go through the apps and try to tinker with your firewall settings (if necessary).

Generic fixes may work, but signing out and signing in again to your ESPN account is a potential fix.Lastly, if the above methods do not help you fix your error code 1008, I strongly recommend contacting the officials by contacting their help center.
