Redesigned ESPN app is coming next Spring to stream live games, real time scores and more
Dah dah dah. Dah dah dah. That, ladies and Gentlemen, is the iconic ESPN Sportscenter theme. If you're a die hard sports fan, you can hear it playing in your mind. Dah dah dah. Dah dah dah. ESPN even uses it with its app to alert users of a notification. Now, ESPN and its parent company Disney are planning on adding a streaming service next year called ESPN + that will be available from a redesigned ESPN app. Disney CEO Bob Iger says, "This one app (will offer) sports fans far more than they can get on any other app, website or channel."

The streaming service will allow users to catch the latest scores and highlights. Authenticated viewers will be able to stream ESPN's channels that will show "thousands of live sporting events. While the Disney executive didn't mention what the service might be priced at, he did make it clear that the entertainment giant isn't running a Mickey Mouse operation. Iger hinted that because the new service will cost more than say, Netflix or Hulu thanks to the lower amount of traffic expected for the ESPN+ service.


ESPN+ is expected to launch next Spring, perhaps in time to debut with the start of the 2018 Major League Baseball season.

Last ditch attempt to forestall the bitter end. ESPN is tanking, and might be out of business by next spring. They are hemorrhaging subscribers, and loosing views big time. But hey, why not offer another crappy app? Surely that'll distract people from their idiotic political ideology bs.

Kind of a lame statement. Espn/Watch espn is used way more than ever. That's why all the video streams are super laggy (no it's not my fiber internet that is the issue). Only thing that doesn't lag is basketball games due to the less popularity.
