According to reports, ESPN is already moving toward the future. According to Sports Illustrated:
“Sling TV, a new web-TV service offered by Dish Network, will allow subscribers to stream ESPN through the internet as part of a $20 per month package, Peter Kafka at Re/code reports.
Dish says the service will be available soon and will come with 10 other non-ESPN channels, including TNT, TBS, CNN, Food Network and Cartoon Network.
ESPN’s current WatchESPN service requires viewers to receive ESPN as part of their TV package.
The new service, according to Kafka, will appeal to those who want to watch cable television – sports broadcasts in particular – but do not want to remain tethered to standard cable TV subscription bundles. In October, HBO made a similar announcement that it would makes its HBO Go service available as a standalone product.”
