ESPN Streaming Service to Launch April 12 for $4.99/Month

Disney Sets ESPN+ Launch Date

The ESPN+ streaming service with access to live sports and original programming will cost $4.99 per month. "ESPN3 will still have thousands of live events and, while some content will shift to ESPN+, we will actively program live events across both platforms". College games, boxing bouts, Grand Slam tennis tournaments, PGA Tour events, global rugby, and worldwide cricket matches will also be available through ESPN+.

ESPN, the Walt Disney-owned media brand, says ESPN+ will be an integrated part of a completely redesigned and reimagined ESPN App - an "all-in-one digital sports platform for fans".

The ESPN+ streaming service, which will feature live sports events, on-demand content, original films and shows and studio programming, will launch on April 12.

The funding brings the total USA humanitarian assistance for the war-torn country to over $854 million since 2017. While the coalition has eased the blockade, restriction on deliveries persist.

Unfortunately this is about all ESPN has released regarding boxing and college wrestling on its new ESPN+ streaming service.

If you want to survive in the post-cable world, you're going to need a standalone streaming app - one that doesn't require you to sign into your non-existent cable provider to watch content. It isn't much for now but more live coverage of these sports is promising.

MLB - MORE THAN 180 GAMES; A GAME PER DAY THROUGHOUT SEASON: ESPN+ will feature a game each day, seven days per week, throughout the regular season, representing every MLB team (blackouts apply).

Putin tightens Turkey alliance with nuclear project, Syria talks
The Akkuyu NPP with four VVER-1200 nuclear power units will be built in the province of Mersin on the Mediterranean coast. Erdogan and Putin met eight times a year ago and regularly speak on the phone.

If you are an Iona College alum or a huge fan of Alabama gymnastics, it looks you're going to have to pay a little extra to watch your favorite games and events. Soccer fans, meanwhile, will have exclusive access to full Major League Soccer out-of-market schedule, and Chicago-area subscribers will be able to view in-market Chicago Fire matches. The app will also give users a daily schedule of National Hockey League games throughout the upcoming 2018-2019 regular season. In theory, the ESPN app then becomes one-stop shopping for your sports streaming.

It's a move that cable networks like CBS, ABC, NBC, The CW and HBO have already made and others - like Disney-owned ESPN have announced but not yet launched. The service will also be available at ESPN.com, and will be sold via an annual package priced at $49.99.

For years ESPN has been the worldwide leader in sports. Finally, there'll be global rugby and cricket.
