Everywhere you look, there is some network starting their own streaming service to get people to purchase in an economy where most people can barely afford to do simple things in order to get by as it is.
Well, another streaming service is apparently in the works, the Information reported Thursday.
Amazon is reportedly in early discussions with Disney about working on the streaming version of ESPN it is developing, while possibly also taking a minority stake in the sports network. This new service would let subscribers watch live ESPN without the need for cable TV.
ESPN is also considering charging customers $20 and $35 a month for the service, which would make it the most expensive streaming service in the country.
Amazon has a lot to offer Disney with its ability to stream live events, and a customer base that Disney could use to promote ESPN’s new streaming service.
Amazon is not the only company Disney is reportedly talking to as the New York Post reported that Disney has been in talks with media companies such as Amazon, Apple, Google, Microsoft, Verizon, and T-Mobile, to name a few.
The Information also reported last week that Verizon and Disney have started talks about a possible partnership with Verizon and ESPN.
