Streaming service launches Disney's OTT aspirations today

Streaming service launches Disney's OTT aspirations today

A Disney spokesperson has defined their service as "thousands of additional live events" packed in a single package. While you don't need to be an ESPN+ subscriber to get some benefit, however, it's clear that the new on-demand and live streaming is the centerpiece.

ESPN+ is available on iOS, Android, Apple TV, Chromecast, Fire TV, and online. The basic fact to consider is that a subscription to ESPN+, which will cost you $5 a month, won't give you ESPN - in fact, you will gain access to programmings that are not on ESPN. CBS Sports HQ utilizes the combined resources of CBS Sports, CBSSports.com, 247Sports, SportsLine, CBS Sports Fantasy and MaxPreps to deliver a robust sports network with live news and reporting, game previews and post-game analysis, must-see highlights, projections and in-depth statistical breakdowns. The programming of the existing eight ESPN networks (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN Classic, ESPNews, ESPN Deportes, the Longhorn Network, and the SEC Network) will be integrated together with ESPN+ into one experience on the same app. Customers with a paid subscription authentication will still be able to watch all the programming they get today from ESPN regardless if they subscribe to the new service or not. Customers also will see Major League Soccer games, college sports from 20 USA conferences, and boxing and Grand Slam tennis matches that do not air on TV. ESPN+ will also include college sports, and ESPN Films' titles. Additionally, you'll find sections for Scores, Watch, Listen (podcasts), and Sports. ESPN+ will feature streaming games from Major League Baseball, Major League Soccer and the National Hockey League.

The service is accessed through the "Watch" section in the ESPN app, and it's joined by ESPN's other original and featured content.

ESPN+ is owned by Disney Direct-to-Consumer and global, a division of The Walt Disney Company. Walt Disney Company, which owns ESPN, has plans for several streaming services across their various brands. That will include content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm, including exclusive content only offered through the new service.
