RE: ESPN+ Rolls out on April 12
They must have had some last minute kinks with the Roku channel that kept it from being available at launch.

I'm curious how aggressive ESPN+ will be at obtaining rights other networks currently have. I'm thinking La Liga currently on BEIN would be a nice add to ESPN+ but is ESPN willing to spend money to obtain rights that will benefit the new platform long term??

ESPN could get the AFL for production costs. Currently the AFL actually pays CBSSN to televise one game a week.

RE: ESPN+ Rolls out on April 12
Why would ESPN pay the AFL anything? There’s only 4 teams and 75% of them didn’t even exist 2 years ago.

If enough people subscribe, maybe they will pony up the money for La Liga, but I’d be shocked if BeIN wanted to let that go.

I think ESPN+ and ESPN are the same app, just different subscriptions.

Notice the "ESPN+" in the menu:

Maybe they can bring in Arena Football at large? There are several leagues to choose from.

Cool. So, do you think it's worth $5 so far?
