ESPN, Fox, and Warner have teamed up to start a new sports streaming service. The service will carry the major sports leagues, including NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, as well as college basketball and football.
The Wall Street Journal reports that the service will launch later this year:
The as-yet-unnamed service will be offered directly to consumers, who would be able to stream all of these companies’ sports content, the companies said in a statement, following a report in The Wall Street Journal about the new venture.
Each of the companies will have one-third ownership of the new service, which is expected to launch in the fall. The companies didn’t announce pricing.
The chief executives of Fox, Warner Bros. Discovery and Disney -- ESPN's majority owner -- said the new offering would increase choice for fans and give a new sports-centric service to those who have cut the cord to traditional pay-TV.
I've been wanting a service that offered major sports apart from cable. Now, it looks like we'll have it. My Streaming Life could get a lot better this fall.
