ESPN, FOX, & Warner Bros. Announce Sports Streaming Service

New Sports Streaming Service from FOX, ESPN, Warner Brothers

ESPN, FOX, and Warner Bros. Discovery have joined forces to bring sports fans an exciting new streaming service. This collaboration between three media powerhouses will offer a comprehensive package that includes popular live channels such as ESPN, FOX, Fox Sports, ABC, and more, as well as other exclusive content.

The service is planned to launch sometime in Fall 2024 and will provide users with access to a wide array of sports programming. From live NFL and NBA games to MLB, NHL, and college sports, viewers can expect to enjoy their favorite teams and athletes in action.

The joint venture, owned equally by ESPN, FOX, and Warner Bros, will offer a standalone app for seamless streaming. While specific pricing details have yet to be released, sports enthusiasts can look forward to experiencing the thrill of their favorite sports and events in the convenience of a single streaming platform.

Unlike other streaming packages that have limited content and may only be focused on one sport, the latest venture from ESPN, FOX, and WB will have a large array of sports including both pro and college. Listed below are some popular options users can expect to find with this service:

  • NFL/UFL
  • NBA/WNBA
  • MLB
  • NHL
  • B1G, Big 12, Big East, SEC
  • PGA Tour/PGA Championship/The Masters
  • Wimbledon/US Open/Australian Open
  • FIFA/MLS/UEFA/CONCACAF
  • UFC/Top Rank Boxing
  • Formula 1/NASCAR
  • and more

The service will include popular cable channels such as ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, SECN, ACCN, ESPNEWS, ABC, FOX, FS1, FS2, BTN, TNT, TBS, truTV, and ESPN+ for both live streaming as well as highlights, replays, and analysis.

New Sports Streaming Service

Walt Disney CEO Bob Iger noted the following on their latest innovation:

The launch of this new streaming sports service is a significant moment for Disney and ESPN, a major win for sports fans, and an important step forward for the media business, this means the full suite of ESPN channels will be available to consumers alongside the sports programming of other industry leaders as part of a differentiated sports-centric service.

Warner Brothers CEO David Zaslav also expressed his excitement for this new merger that will provide a wide array of sports content:

At WBD, our ambition is always to connect our leading content and brands with as many viewers as possible, and this exciting joint venture and the unparalleled combination of marquee sports rights and access to the greatest sporting events in the world allows us to do just that.

In today’s streaming landscape, dozens of media companies are competing for viewers’ attention leaving the market saturated and unappealing. One way to combat this is to combine various services which we have seen in the past including HBO Max & Discovery Plus as well as Disney+ and Hulu.

This will be a welcome addition to the streaming landscape as live sporting events dominate the television ratings and many only have cable or other IPTV Services solely for this purpose.

  2. $50 mentioned in another article.

    This is going to be a Dagger through the heart for the Cable Companies. So many people (Mainstream not us) holding on to their cable subs because of Sports.

  6. ile stick to streaming an save the £50 :+1:

    This really is groundbreaking. I think this might be the end for traditional cable companies and if so Fuc$ Them!

  9. Avatar for teehar teehar says:

    they’ll just stick it to their internet only subscribers

  10. Avatar for TXRon TXRon says:

    They had better be careful. In my area ive seen lotsa seniors switch over to one form of 5g internet or another.

    “There are also a few things we don’t know yet. Price is a big one. But if it’s priced in a reasonable way — and it’s hard to see why it wouldn’t be, given it’s such a big bet for these companies — it truly represents an existential threat to cable TV.”

  12. Like anything else entertainment related. They will suck you in for a cheap price and then jack up the price in never ending increments.

    So advertisers will pay big bucks to air their products on their streaming service and subscribers will pay big bucks to watch their commercial laden streams.

    Big corporate wins again.

    Btw, could they be doing this to curtail or at least hamper the illegal streaming services? Consolidate their efforts into developing a non-hackable broadcast stream?

    Think about it. For a lousy $50 bucks you get almost all the sport entertainment. Sports I would arguably say is the #1 selling point of all the “unverified” iptv services.

    A sports addicted nut with a decent ota setup would probably jump ship on a lot of these iptv services.

    "While there’s no confirmed cost yet, combining the prices of service from all three companies costs upwards of $27.

    So it wouldn’t be surprising to see it cost somewhere between $20 and $30. In terms of signups, interested consumers will be able to sign up through a dedicated app."

  13. Avatar for MarkxG MarkxG says:

    Nonsense! these channels don’t need to be hacked. You are already getting them in your IPTV service!

    Why? If someone is getting all these channels now with a quality IPTV service paying $7.99-$15.00/month why would they ditch their IPTV service to pay $40-$50/month?

  14. Go bother someone else.

    That was not a Troll reply (at least not this time!). My questions are valid points to your post. And you will know when I am bothering you :yawning_face:

  16. If the price is around the $50 price point, I could see it being a very attractive option for many if they have a decent broadband service. For the “count me out crowd” on here, remember that we are not the typical consumers.

  17. You do realize where the borrow streams come from? Don’t you? Their death makes it hard for us to get the some we like.

  18. Hotwheels is correct.

  19. Avatar for MarkxG MarkxG says:

    Yeah the IPTV providers will just Pirate the channels from this new service. I have to disagree here but we will find out this Fall

  20. I disagree. The more sources that stay in business, the better off IPTV is. More streams sources to borrow and more choices of IPTV service.

  21. Avatar for teehar teehar says:

    well there is a pretty big caveat there…unless I overlooked it,it doesn’t include CBS or NBC sports,nor their locals.So it’s kind of only half a solution.

  22. Avatar for MarkxG MarkxG says:

    Right, but I suppose one could use an OTA Antenna for the local CBS and NBC channels. I’ve never done that and don’t no how good the reception would be but lots here do it

  23. Avatar for teehar teehar says:

    yea I have tried for 40 plus years,off and on to get ota here in these mtns…no go.Still plenty of rural areas left.Heck you’d be surprised at the number of folks here that can only get fixed isp or dsl internet service.Many still rely on satellite for tv still.Hard to imagine that here we are nearly 2025 and still no 21st century internet or tv options.

  24. The fixed cell network ISP should be a good solution for outlying areas, but sadly T-Mobile, Version, etc tend to concentrate their 5G resources in places near highly populated regions.

    I have a cousin who uses Starlink. He says that it’s a good service, but expensive.

  25. In the article they mention both CBS and NBC and went on to state the sports programing on those networks are available ota ,with the exception of Peacock.

  26. It’s not only that hot wheels.

    All the sources of IPTV, prestige TV, movies, etc need enough paying customers for those sources to continue be highly profitable to provide the incentive to produce content and provide coverage for sports.

    $50 is too high.
    Forget it.
    They are missing Sports sources; Locals, NBC sports, CBS sports, Golf and others.
    They are Priced out already if anybody just thinks about it for a minute.
    Just get Youtube TV for $73 ($23 more)
    and now you have nearly all the other sports sources,
    CBS Sports Network, All your Locals which have Sports, Golf, etc which are NOT included in this package.
    Plus with YTTV unlimited DVR, and MULTI-SCREEN which is just starting
    but should include “pick your own games” by Fall it seems.
    Do you think this new service will allow Recording, or Multiscreen???
    What am I missing??

  28. I read this in one on\e of the links posted above. They are saying around $20-$30 a month.

  29. Very good points. You are absolutely correct.

  30. Avatar for teehar teehar says:

    yep then in my mind it’s not truly a true live sports solution.CBS and NBC parent companies have loads of big time sports.NFL,March Madness,the Olympics.

  31. I understand, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this venture pans out. That a few more companies may opt in.

    I no longer am a sports nut. I played enough in high school and college and even in city leagues to last a lifetime.

    NFL, basically a conversation piece at the local bar
    NCAA, only if my teams are doing good. (IU, ND) and during the final 4 [soon to be final 8-10] and March Madness.
    MLB, only during September///maybe?
    Golf, the 4 majors and something to talk about on a Sunday afternoon at a sports bar.

    The rest of the sports world I don’t give a hoot about anymore.

    So, no, I will not be buying their packaged sports sub. lol

  32. Flt, $23 is kind of a deal to a lot of people.
    Also, YTTB has a history of raising it’s price relatively often.

    OTA networks are not the issue, for those who are including them in their issues with the possible service. Theoretically, they are available for free for the majority of the population.

    If you’re not a hardcore sports/gambling fan, this discussion is irrelevant.

  33. I’ll be shocked if prices start lower than $40.

  34. Very interesting. Sounds like what we’ve been looking and waiting for in our house. Peacock is cheap and we get Paramount + free. We’d rather have a legal paid service that just works instead of streaming from sketchy sites/services. Let’s see how it’s priced.

  35. Avatar for teehar teehar says:

    Peacock isn’t that cheap to get your local affiliate.That requires premium which atm is $10.You also have to pay an upcharge to paramount plus to get your local channel,which is another $12.So when you start adding it all up you’re right back to a fubo or youtube live price.The devil is always in the details.I stand corrected…the cost of peacock to include your local NBC affiliate is now $12.
