Exciting news for sports enthusiasts and Disney fans! The much-anticipated joint streaming venture between Walt Disney’s ESPN, Fox, and Warner Bros. Discovery has been officially named Venu Sports. After months of speculation and rumored names, the collaboration of these media giants has finally unveiled their new sports-only streaming platform, setting the stage for an exhilarating shift in how we watch live sports.

Interestingly, the official website for Venu Sports, launched today, is owned by FOX Corporation, providing a hint about who might be leading this major project. According to media analyst Rich Greenfield, FOX is likely the tech powerhouse behind the venture, presumably leveraging its acclaimed streaming technology that powers Fox Sports. This could set the stage for Venu Sports to emerge as a game-changer in delivering seamless sports streaming experiences when it launches this fall.

Regarding pricing, The Athletic reported that the subscription cost for Venu Sports is expected to range between $40 and $50 per month. While no final price has been confirmed, Fox CEO Lachlan Murdoch hinted at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media, and Telecom conference that the service would be positioned in the higher end of the initial estimates. Thus, eager fans should prepare for a price point within that range.

So, what can you expect from Venu Sports? Set to launch in late summer 2024, the platform is designed to go live just in time for the start of the college football season. Warner Bros. Discovery has confirmed that the new service will be bundled with Max, while Disney ensures subscription options through Hulu and ESPN+.

Here’s the exciting lineup of channels you’ll get with Venu Sports:

* FS1
* FS2
* truTV

The service will broadcast a plethora of sports, including NFL and UFL football, NBA and WNBA basketball, MLB baseball, NHL hockey, and thousands of college sports events from conferences like the ACC, Big 10, Big 12, Big East, and SEC. You can also catch the College Football Playoff, PGA Tour golf events, Grand Slam tennis tournaments, cycling races like the Giro d’Italia, top-tier soccer including the FIFA World Cup, and major auto racing competitions.
