It's time to do something about the most expensive channel on cable -- ESPN

It's time to do something about the most expensive channel on cable -- ESPN

Getting tired of paying for channels I don't watch; seems I am not alone.  Although I like to watch sports, only a handful of the games I watch are on ESPN.  For $96/year, I could skip a few games and find something else to do. 

56% Would Drop ESPN In A Heartbeat If It Meant Saving $8 A Month On Cable

Hi djc06001. 

 

We build ESPN into certain service packages as part of negotiated agreements. We look at our channel lineup from time to time and realign availability as needed. Each year, we consider changes to our channel lineup to better align our more popular packages with the most viewed programming. If you’d like to discontinue receiving the channel I can help with finding new package options.

 

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Get a Dragonfly and watch what you want streaming. No more money to ESPN. Pay a couple hundred up front, don't miss games, and save a ton of money. Best part is there are no monthly payments. Take the power back from greedy and often leftist companies. I'm cancelling cable altogether.

I'm surprised how little I watch it.  MLB Network does a better job with baseball.  There is no auto racing on ESPN.  Maybe I'll watch SC when I care more about football.  I know the individual networks are scared of a-la-carte programing so like in the case of ESPN Disney negotiates all their offereings and do what they can to get all their channels on a basic tier.
