The probability of success for ESPN+

Parks Associates analyst Brett Sappington agreed that it will be compelling for some customers, particularly due to content that won’t be available elsewhere like MLS games and some of the college sports. But he questioned how valuable the service would be to fans of the MLB and NHL.

“If you’re a sports fan, are you interesting in a generalized sports service with little pieces from everywhere?” said Sappington, guessing that baseball and hockey fans would likely go for MLB.TV or NHL.TV.

ESPN+ will be offering MLB.TV for an additional $24.99 per month and said it will do the same with the NHL beginning with the 2018-2019 season.
