Thread: ESPN+

    No one is complaining about them adding all the extra stuff and charging for it. What people are worried about is if you are already an ESPN subscriber paying $8 a month and are satisfied with the network and streaming content you get, the possibility of having them move the streaming content you are paying for and like right now to ESPN+ so you now have to pay $13 to get it. It's mainly complaining about the principle (if it even happens, no one knows yet).

    Example: I only watch football, don't watch any other sport professional or amateur. So, I'm already paying $8 a month to get ESPN and can watch every GS game either on TV or on WatchESPN. If they move all Sunbelt sports to ESPN+, I will have to pay for ESPN in order to see the games that are under TV contract since they will not be on ESPN+, and pay another $5 to get the other games. I typically cannot go to games but donate four season tickets to WINGS every year and donate monetarily as well. I think I have to full right to complain about the extra $5 if that happens but I hope it won't.....and I will still pay for it so I think I'd have the right.

    It is the exact same legitimate argument many cable subscribers already have about paying for a bunch of channels they don't want just to get the one they do which brought on streaming media and "clip the cord" to the rescue.....and the streaming media providers are just going to go to the exact same methodology watch and see.

    SBC and GS are getting paid. That's the deal. This isn't for just "small" college football, it will also carry 500+ SBC sporting all year. So baseball, basketball, soccer, etc...

    Also reported to show out of market MLB and MLS games and probably more. It's way better than CUSA deal in my opinion. And it provides a nice one stop shop for most of GS sports. Any other games will be shown on regular TV.

    Y'all *****ing about $5/ month is why we can't have nice things. I'm currently debating on whether or not to cut the cord. I really don't know how much if any it'll save after picking all the a la carte options I we need to make the while family happy. We will see, but either way I will add E+ to my streaming lineup.
    Seriously, if you live in Atlanta, going to one game in Statesboro will exceed the cost of an entire year on ESPN+. My gas money to and from the Boro once would exceed $60. I’ll gladly pay this paltry sum.

    Looks like I'll be snip-snipping next week. Got some fire sticks set up with some nice apps to get pretty much everything streaming and on demand free and putting an antenna in the attic. Only real issue for me will be watchESPN content during football season but figure I'll just either get a directv now, youtubetv, or hulu live subscription for $40/month during football season or be a moocher off someone else since I've been the moochee for the last few years.....probably going to get some WTF texts in a few days.

    I definitely blows that ESPN wised up and started charging for their streamable content, but it's not like we had the option to stay on WatchESPN for free. WatchESPN is going to be greatly reduced and will eventually go away all together. It was either hop on ESPN+ to get guaranteed cable games or try to pull a CUSA and stream on Facebook live. I'd would rather just pay for plus at that point anyway.

    WatchESPN will not go away because it requires a cable subscription to have access to it.

    You're thinking about ESPN3.

    It won’t go away yet but most of it’s content will be moved to Plus. The only things that will be on ESPN3 will be things like skycams, Spanish announcers, and halftime shows.

    Disagree, the masses want to watch P5 games so that's not going to a seperate subscription content. People who pay for ESPN through dish/cable are still going to have access to the games streaming. As you know the local markets decide what game you get on TV but with streaming ESPN is able to offer all the other games on ESPN3/WatchESPN. Think about it, if they move everything to +, why have and pay for cable/dish? That would kill ESPN.
    No longer eating crow for saying "The TO is gone get over it!!"

    My bad. You don't have to get teste. I'll cut it out. Heh heh.


    WatchESPN will not be gutted. ESPN gets $8 per traditional tv subscriber, and only those have access to watchESPN content. They will not move all the most desirable content to a $5 platform, ESPN+. The idea is to put enough on ESPN+ to entice cable subscribers to add it on (thus paying $13) and entice cord cutters to at least pay $5 for what it offers.

    There is a vas deferens between what you two are talking about.
