    AquaKILLAH KEVI voted down because you didn't mention using xbox pause first. You should edit the solution.

    ClaytThaGreatI never had to say xbox pause. Not sure why all the downvotes. His directions worked perfectly.

    Jay InsomniakThere is no need for a pause. I followed these instructions with no issue.

    This must be done on a video clip. It CANNOT be done while watching a live event as you cannot get the pause menu.

    1.) Simply, load the ESPN app. Select any (non live) video.
    2.) Hit cn_B on your controller to open fullscreen.
    3.) Then using your kinect say "Xbox Pause," then "Xbox Select" (to highlight green text), then "Sports Guide."

    Achievement unlocked.

    **Note: Kinect peripherals are required for this achievement.

    Thanks to the Summer 2016 update, you can now get this achievement without Kinect! I just unlocked this with the help of the Cortana app and my headset. This solution is very similar to others, but without Kinect!

    1. "Hey Cortana! Open ESPN App."
    2. Play any video and press B for full screen.
    3. "Hey Cortana! Pause Video."
    4. "Hey Cortana! Switch to ESPN App."
    5. Then say "Sports Guide."

    Achievement Unlocked!

    J PinderIt does work, but your solution doesn't. It bothered me for a while, but it's simply a difference in wording.

    Step 4 should be:
    4. "Hey Cortana! Select." (This highlights the options that you can speak.)

    You should update your solution with this wording. "Switch to ESPN App," only works outside the app itself, and doesn't bring up any options for selection. It was very confusing.

    AlehldeanThis comment for this solution is what finally worked for me.

    Felt like an idiot yelling at Cortana trying all of the other solutions till I read this comment and it worked first time.

    Deadsh0tGGA bit off topic, but when I started the app (outside US, if it matters), it said that it needed an update, and I ended up with the new ESPN Xbox app, which apparently doesn't come with the achievements (I launched it and I didn't get the first achievement).

    Do you guys have any ideas?
