Per WSJ, Fox, Warner Bros Discovery and Disney are forming a joint venture (1/3 ownership each) for a new sports streaming service. ESPN+, HULU and Max subscriber would all (currently) have access to this streaming service. It is expected to launch later this year, so watch for selected sports programming to move to this new service.
But as sure as God made little green apples, expect this to become an extra-cost option at some point. All those billion dollar conference agreements gotta pay the piper at some point.
