As usual, Hoo TV provided HLS URLs to the replay streams while I downloaded it shortly after the game (done at 10:07 PM ET), processed it, and finally uploaded it, complete at 12:27 AM to you know where. The Hoo TV provided HLS replay streams are no longer valid (they expire), but the Hoo TV downloaded/processed/uploaded replay pristine (see link below, specially set to be accessible by anyone for the time being).
I also just checked the WatchESPN replay and it looks fine via Kodi, Roku, and PC, so I don't know why it was corrupted/pulled for you (and your setup?). Maybe it was, but just during window when you tried? I also have very little if any problems with the live stream, at least none that were not of my own making.
Sometimes WatchESPN seems to work or not in mysterious ways. Cutting out the middlemen and going lean and mean definitely improves things though, i.e., no browser overhead, no WatchESPN player/app overhead.
