Disney kicks off video streaming push with ESPN+

Disney kicks off video streaming push with ESPN+

A closer look at the schedule should make it clear whether ESPN+ is worth it for you.

In addition to being the sports media giant's first big push into digital subscriptions, ESPN+ is also parent company Disney's first streaming launch since it took a majority stake in technology company BAMtech previous year, with the explicit goal of helping Disney move into streaming.

ESPN today is debuting its highly anticipated ESPN+ over-the-top digital service, with new company President Jimmy Pitaro calling this the "beginning of a new era of innovation for ESPN".

Disney first announced past year that it would be launching its first ever direct-to-consumer video streaming service in the form of ESPN+, with pricing confirmed in February ...

ESPN+ is designed for fanatics who want more sports programing, and for people who can not find their favorite teams or sports on TV, Disney executives said.

HOME: The most personalized and complete content experience.

En ese sentido, destacó que la Cumbre de las Américas permitirá que los países asistentes debatan este problema que afecta a toda la región.

Dubbed ESPN+, the subscription-only, direct-to-consumer service will cost $4.99 per month and launch alongside a redesigned ESPN digital app. Subscribers will gain access to live sporting events beyond those available on ESPN or ESPN2, such as Wimbledon matches or additional Major League Baseball games, as well as the full slate of the network's "30 for 30" documentary series and other original programming. "This new product reflects our direct-to-consumer strategy focused on combining our beloved brands with our proprietary, industry-leading technology to give users unparalleled access to our world-class content". Well, we are about three weeks into the season, and today ESPN+ has been launched. The app offers scores and news from recent games, along with video highlights and audio clips. And you're definitely not getting the big stuff.

Pitaro added that ESPN+ wasn't created to compete with distributors like Comcast, AT&T and Dish Network's Sling TV that offer cable bundles.

SPORTS: One-click access to a fan's favorite teams, leagues and sports and quick navigation to complete coverage of any of the dozens of sports and leagues ESPN covers around the world. The Disney-owned service is subscription-based, giving sports fans access to live sports, ESPN original programming and on-demand content.

Apple: iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.

ESPN+ is already available on a number of platforms, including Android, Chromecast, Fire TV, iOS, Apple TV, and on the web.
