ESPN, FOX, and Warner Bros. Discovery this week have agreed to create a joint venture to launch a new streaming sports service in the U.S.
The service will offer a combined package of linear sports networks and direct-to-consumer services, including content from all major professional sports leagues and college sports.
The service is expected to launch in Fall 2024 and will be available through a new standalone app.
Specific details about pricing and bundling options will be announced at a later date.
The service aims to provide sports fans with a comprehensive and convenient way to access their favorite sports content.
The service will include linear sports networks like ESPN, ESPN2, FOX, FS1, TNT, TBS, and more.
It will also include direct-to-consumer services like ESPN+.
Content will span major professional sports leagues like the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, and WNBA.
College sports, UFC, PGA TOUR Golf, Grand Slam Tennis, and international soccer will also be available.
Sports fans will have access to a wider range of content in one place. The service may offer competitive pricing compared to individual subscriptions. The new app is designed to be user-friendly and convenient.
This joint venture could significantly change the landscape of sports streaming in the U.S. It could lead to increased competition and potentially lower prices for consumers.
