Embattled ESPN Cries Uncle: Streaming Now On the Table

Disney CEO Bob Iger said at a conference Tuesday, “Rights are not an issue, It can be done… but there are issues we face doing it. Pricing is one of them.” […] A standalone, subscription streaming service might be an option to pick up some of those lost subscribers. In order to believe that, though, you have to believe that the 7 million lost subscribers were fans of ESPN. My guess is that most of those 7 million lost subscribers were not ESPN fans. Rather, they were individuals sick and tired of paying for an obscenely-priced cable or satellite package — and a big reason for that obscene pricing is ESPN. – John Nolte, Breitbart
