Samsung UN55D7000 TV won't Play ESPN3

The only reason I bought the UN55D7000LF TV was to get access to ESPN3 on the web. My internet service provider is one of four companies nationwide which carries ESPN 3 as part of its service. Now that I have the TV, I cannot get the content to play. ESPN3 web page opens up just fine. All the sports items are available to play, whether "live", "replay" or "coming up". The play icon is even on the screen. The problem is, when I hit play, nothing happens. It appears as if will play the content, but ends up not playing it. All my other devices in the house play ESPN3 whether via wifi or hard wired, including my Samsung galaxy Tab (GT-P7310MA).

Can somebody tell me what is going on. Do I need to return this TV?

HD Tech.

ESPN 3 is ESPN's web based streaming channel. Its not a TV channel or an Aapp. Its strictly web based. ESPN uses this platform to show live sporting events which they would not normally carry on the main ESPN or ESPN 2. They also have replays of a wide range of sporting events which they maintain up to one week on the site.

Hope that helps.
