Pre-negotiated access, so playable by absolutely anyone anywhere.
These streams may play straightaway in your browser under Win 10, MacOS, or more recent versions of iOS. Otherwise, you may have to install a browser add-on to make it native HLS playback capable.
For a bunch of other ways to view these streams, e.g., on a media streaming device like Roku or Fire TV, see "How to View and/or Record HLS URLs" at:
Note that these WatchESPN replay streams aren't subject to the same limitations as WatchESPN live streams, however, they DO eventually expire and become invalid. In the past, they've been good for 8 hours or more, but this year, they seem to be good for MUCH longer..
I try to refresh them periodically (see last refresh date below), but If they won't play and you think they may have expired, reply to this message and I'll refresh them if necessary.
