Huge news coming from ESPN on the future of their main channel.
All sports fans know ESPN for operating several television channels, including ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNews, ESPNU, ESPN Classic, and ESPN Deportes.
The main channel is ESPN, which has always been available for fans who have a basic cable package. Things may be changing very soon.
ESPN is considering selling its primary channel straight to consumers as a subscription streaming service, according to the Wall Street Journal.
This project is currently known as “Flagship.”
According to the article, which cited many anonymous individuals, Disney has yet to decide when it will implement this adjustment. According to the article, Disney would continue to offer EPSN as a television channel even after splitting it off into its own streaming service, despite live sports on ESPN are a key lure for the diminishing number of consumers who pay for the traditional cable bundle.
Though Disney currently offers its ESPN+ streaming service, that doesn’t include access to the flagship programming that airs on ESPN’s traditional cable channel.
Nowadays, every major channel seems to have some type of subscription service that are dipping into the pockets of consumers.
Like the others, many people will pay while others will choose more illegal routes like usual.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
