The song sounds like a sampled version of this so now when I hear it I'm conditioned to feel excitement and suspense about a game might end.

Sounds like no more games on Bally. As a fan that doesn’t (legally) get Bally, this is good news for me.

A bunch of people are championing the death of Bally (and rightfully so, it sucked), but I'm curious who the game rights fall to. ACCNX is already pretty tough to watch, if they somehow make a lower tear or dilute the already-bad production work among a couple more games on a given Saturday, I can't imagine what we're gonna get is gonna be any better than the RSNs. I guess as long as it's viable to watch (or moreso than Bally) then it's an improvement, but I'm skeptical.

MLB is propping up Bally's, once the season is done Bally's is done.

ESPN has worse production values than Bally.

^^ And Raycom will still be producing them. So quality will still be

But at least it's available OTA and not an unconscionably long contract

^^ I think news outlets reporting that are missing the nuance in what Iger actually said. He's angling to ditch everything but ESPN. With ESPN he just suggested they're open to "strategic partnerships" or "an equity share" or some such shit. Which I think boils down to "give me boatloads of cash and I'll cut you a piece of that sweet, sweet ESPN revenue engine." For us consumers, that probably will mean even more ESPN branding on other platforms, like Amazon/Netflix. So the opposite of ESPN dying. Bahaha.

ESPN wouldn't be firing half of their on air personalities if they weren't "dying". People don't watch SportsCenter every night like they used to, lots of people have cut the cord, etc. Their best days are in the past.

Layoffs aren't really a good indicator in this environment. Layoffs are just the cool thing to do right now to show some profit increase as consumer spending slows down. The decline in studio programming ratings is interesting, but I think can be largely be contributed to the drop in cable subscribers.

ESPN is still a massive and highly influential (aka loaded with cash) media entity. Obviously they were slow to adjust to cord cutting. But a lot (or all?) of that has to do with being so deeply in bed with the old school cable/satellite providers. They could have gambled their 4 billion + in revenue and just thrown the switch on ESPN+ as a standalone subscriber package years ago, but its hard to shoot the 100 million subscriber cash cow in the head all at once.

Instead they've absorbed the pain of the contracting cable subscriber market (down to <74 million). Iger is almost certainly about to use that contraction as an excuse to tell the old cable business partners to deal with it and launch a full standalone subscription product.

Time will tell, but IMO ESPN is far from dying, and rather is on the verge of shaking up the whole cable market even more by offering a standalone subscription model. I won't be surprised if they end up with record revenue and kill a couple of smaller cable companies in the process.

The production quality of raycom games is better than the production quality of all but the best game ESPN carries across all conferences every week. Every single other ESPN produced game is TERRIBLE.

Yeah I think this will happen in the next 5 years there's too much $ in it for Disney not to. Maybe it will happen in tiers and not all at once.

live broadcasts are about all that’s left for networks to rake in advertising money

ESPN’s not going anywhere
