Well I am a Premier League fan of Liverpool here, and in the US of course already we get more than enough coverage via the excellent production of NBC’s networks.
We also now get great coverage of Italy’s Serie A on ESPN channels.
Travel Pat thank you for sharing this feedback on DAZN, which interestingly is headed by John Skipper who was ousted effectively at long last and far too late from from his position as head of ESPN. Even more interesting is that Skipper also has tapped the notorious Jamie Horowitz for DAZN’s content so as to help build “The Netflix of Sports.”
In November, Disney+ is launching in the US and the service is being stated to include also the already existing ESPN+ service.
My oh my how the plot will thicken for sports coverage in the US after about two months.
I’m taking notes from you all on this post because live online streaming on demand via such services, which many of us in the US have done anyway via the pirate seas to catch various sporting events not on TV over the years, will replace far more sports coverage that has been on cable television.
As noted on another thread from the summer, this year I’ve noticed already for example ESPN pushing more of the content they used to run regularly on the cable channels and on ESPN3 onto ESPN+ as a scam of sorts given that such content was included in the past at no additional charge.
And of course in particular in the summer, on ESPN we are left with all kinds of filler crap on the regular channels along with all the annoying fake sports debate shows. Mercifully, such days of scrolling through the drudgery of so many channels on cable to find something are ending as more such services launch and add content well into the next decade.
