ESPN Stuck Amid an Awkward Situation

Disney plans to bet its future with streaming, rising above its past from the linear cable television. However, Disney’s present is a combo pack of these two. The high profile asset, ESPN has caught up in the middle of its past and future. The Disney-owned sports network, ESPN, had been a profit engine for decades that had earned billions of dollars every year. However, at the same time, Disney+ is all set to go live from Nov 12 with its family-oriented streaming services at $6.99 per month. Disney+ will be having a whole library of old and new shows which will include Disney and Pixar movies, Star Wars, Marvel movies, The Simpsons and many more. What the consumers won’t get in Disney+ will be the sports. Disney has a separate sports streaming, ESPN+ that had shows some live sports, UFC, NBA or NFL games at $4.99/month. However, it had a subscribership of 2.4 billion by the end of Q2 but Disney+ is expected to 2 million subscribers right after one day.
