More cord cutters will leave and will start watching their shows online. You already have tv programming streaming online. ABC and Disney channels you could stream online new episodes of the tv shows online.

Seems the ESPN Classic have been taken off of our lineup for Suddenlink. The contract was not renewed. I thought it was part of ESPN?

They are phasing ESPN Classic out as a channel. Going to on demand on their app with it.

I rather keep that than the SEC, Longhorn, Big 10 and ACC networks. They could take them to on Demand app.

They know you'd rarely pay for those, so they make the one you would pay for the on demand app.

Interesting. I though maybe it might be a good candidate to be rebranded as the ACC Network. In a somewhat related note, I recently saw an article that mentioned the Big12 is looking into an over the top streaming Big12 Network.

I don't believe ESPN Classic has an HD feed, so there is no HD channel position to rebrand.

ESPN Classic looks like would be replaced by ACCNetwork. Why? Classic is where people watch the classic stuff. ESPN News is where there should be no need of. That one should have been gotten rid of.
