Disney Breaks Up With netflix

gold7_001

Disney will be launching a new, stand-alone ESPN streaming service in 2018. This is wonderful news to those who have left cable behind but still yearn to watch sports. It is also big for ESPN, which has had a rough couple of years. The sports media empire lost 12 million subscribers since its peak in 2011, and the company fired a number of high-profile employees in 2017, including NBA reporters Marc Stein and Chad Ford. Former ESPN writer Bill Simmons claimed that the company was too slow to recognize the importance of digital infrastructure. 

The new ESPN service will offer “approximately 10,000 live regional, national, and international games and events a year, including Major League Baseball, National Hockey League, Major League Soccer, Grand Slam tennis, and college sports. Individual sport packages will also be available for purchase, including MLB.TVNHL.TV and MLS Live.”

“Veronica Mars” creator Rob Thomas and Alloy Entertainment received a two-book deal with Vintage Books to publish a new series based on the adult life of the popular titular character. The books will feature an original mystery series and will pick up where events from the forthcoming Veronica Mars movie ends. The book could also help promote the movie and serve as a bridge to a potential film sequel. The film is slated to be released in 2014, and publication for the book will be timed to the release of the film, and will most likely arrive in spring 2014.
