ESPN plans to launch a subscription streaming service offering multiple sports — but not “current” content running on its “linear” cable networks.
The new service will include “live regional, national and international sporting events” from both ESPN and BamTech, a third of which was just bought by ESPN parent Walt Disney. Many such events currently run on ESPN’s non-linear streaming service ESPN3, which is only available to cable, satellite or telco TV subscribers.
BamTech, which was originally created by Major League Baseball (MLB), is a streaming technology company whose clients besides MLB include HBO Now, the National Hockey League, the PGA Tour, WWE Network and Ice Network.
ESPN did not say when the new subscription service will start or how much it will cost.
