ESPN's New Streaming Service, ESPN+, Is Set To Launch On April 12

Disney Sets ESPN+ Launch Date

Announced today, the ESPN+ subscription will debut on April 12th, and that's the date you can expect to see a library of sports content that includes live event coverage, ESPN originals and on-demand options for $5 a month.

ESPN unveiled its new streaming service, which it's calling "ESPN+", on Thursday, April 12.

Zidane tells Real Madrid players not to expect Cardiff's miracle against Juve
They trail leaders Barcelona by 13 points in the league and were knocked out of the Copa del Rey by Leganes. But the former French World Cup victor added: "I would have liked to avoid Juventus , for lots of reasons".

ESPN+ will be the company's first direct-to-consumer TV service. As I mentioned earlier this year, ESPN+ will essentially carry filler content that didn't make the cut on the main ESPN channels. More games are expected to be added as the service matures, though streaming rights are more hotly contested than ever, as the NFL's recent experiences have shown. With streaming rights for numerous leagues already parceled out among the major broadcasters, there were questions about what type of programming ESPN would be able to offer to lure new subscribers to ESPN+.

In addition to the major domestic pro sports leagues in the U.S., ESPN+ will air thousands of college sporting events (primarily from smaller conferences), PGA Tour golf, hundreds of matches from three of the Grand Slam tennis tournament (all except the French Open) and scores of worldwide sports such as rugby and cricket. On the MLB front, there'll be an ESPN+ MLB game every day throughout the regular season, for a total of more than 180 games. "They will get all of that as a part of a completely re-imagined, increasingly personalized ESPN App that provides easy, one-stop access to everything ESPN offers", said ESPN President James Pitaro in a statement. This comes in the form of being able to purchase MLB.TV for just $24.99 per month.

UK's Queen Elizabeth attends Easter service at Windsor
Most of the family walked to the chapel while the queen , William and Kate arrived by vehicle , the AP reported. It is understood Prince Philip missed the annual Maundy Service on Thursday because of a problem with his hip.

It's a move that cable networks like CBS, ABC, NBC, The CW and HBO have already made and others - like Disney-owned ESPN have announced but not yet launched. Rugby fans will get matches from SANZAAR (including Super Rugby, The Rugby Championship, the Lions Series, Mitre10 Cup, Currie Cup, Bledisloe Cup and other global matches), the HSBC World Rugby Sevens series, and 18 regular-season matches in the inaugural season of Major League Rugby, the new American professional rugby union league. A similar offering will also launch ahead of the National Hockey League season.

A Disney branded service featuring content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel & Lucas Film is scheduled to launch next year.
