ESPN is getting in on the streaming wars.
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. However, it doesn’t offer access to content on ESPN; this is a supplemental app, and won’t include NFL or NBA games, but will include MLB and MLS.
The new streaming service is the first offering from the Disney-BAMTech deal, which was announced last August. Disney will debut its own streaming service in 2019, which is set to include a new Star Wars series as well as movies pulled from Netflix.
You can start a free 30-day trial now.
