ESPN App Updated With New ESPN+ Streaming Service

ESPN App Updated With New ESPN+ Streaming Service

On Thursday, it debuted ESPN+, which will cost $4.99 a month and offer subscribers access to live sporting events, as well as on-demand and original content, like a new basketball analysis show from Kobe Bryant and the series Draft Academy. ESPN+ is just the first on-demand and live video delivery service that Disney is planning to launch, with a Disney-branded video on demand service coming in late 2019. The programming of the existing eight ESPN networks (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN Classic, ESPNews, ESPN Deportes, the Longhorn Network, and the SEC Network) will be integrated together with ESPN+ into one experience on the same app. Customers with a paid subscription authentication will still be able to watch all the programming they get today from ESPN regardless if they subscribe to the new service or not.

College sports will range from 20 different athletic conferences across the country and other live sports include rugby, cricket, boxing, tennis and golf.

ESPN+ is available within the ESPN mobile app on Apple, Google and Amazon platforms.

I tested an iPhone version that subscribed to ESPN's TV channels and ESPN+, and it was easy to pull up live games, replays and other clips playing on any of the main ESPN channels or the add-on service.

ESPN is now offering a free first month for new subscribers (until April 19th), with a cost of $4.99 per month month afterward, or $49.99 annually. However, you should note that its offering is not similar to the ESPN we are all familiar with.

"I, personally, am incredibly excited about the potential", new ESPN President Jimmy Pitaro told reporters at the company's CT headquarters.

The new service shouldn't have any impact on BYU or local sports, according to the Deseret News. You will be able to view ESPN documentaries, and an original National Basketball Association show called Detail that will be written and hosted by Kobe Bryant.

The big question: What do Disney and ESPN expect out of ESPN+?

Netflix doesn't give you access to every show, but there's always something to watch. Adding the 30 for 30 archive is definitely one way of helping to prop up the variety bag of live events, and eliminating ads all over ESPN as part of your subscription is nice, too.

ESPN+ has a weeklong free trial. If you sign up before April 18, your free trial will last 30 days as part of a promotion.
