As if Disney isn't already taking over the world with Black Panther, Avengers Infinity War, and Solo: A Stars Wars Story, the billion-dollar entertainment company has announced the release date of their new streaming app for ESPN.

On April 12, ESPN will launch a subscription-based service, called ESPN+, that may fix that problem for $4.99/month, or a year for $49.99.

The new streaming service comes from BAMTech, formerly Major League Baseball's Advanced Media Arm and now a partly owned subsidiary of ESPN owner Disney.

Following ESPN's announcement it will launch its standalone streaming service April 12, the network also unveiled the name and branding for it.

ESPN+ is a product of ESPN, Disney Direct-to-Consumer and BAMTECH Media. This new sports streaming app would be dubbed ESPN Plus and would provide a slew of streaming options for sports fans.

United should have added to their lead before the break with the Swans fortunate to only be 2 goals adrift at halftime. Liverpool were unable to hold onto second place as United moved two points ahead of them at Old Trafford.

The network opted to name the service "ESPN+" which is read as "ESPN plus". The service offers one Major League Baseball game a day and games beyond that will cost an extra $24.99 a month through the MLB's subscription service. Likewise for hockey fans, the service will also stream over 180 National Hockey League games for the 2018-2019 season. More games are expected to be added as the service matures, though streaming rights are more hotly contested than ever, as the NFL's recent experiences have shown.

RUGBY & CRICKET - HUNDREDS OF MATCHES FROM INTERNATIONAL RUGBY AND CRICKET: ESPN+ will serve rugby and cricket fans in the USA with more of their beloved sports, throughout the year. Fans of Olympic sports will also get hundreds of wrestling, swimming and diving, gymnastics, and ice hockey events from a variety of conference partners nationwide exclusively on ESPN+.

Some sporting events, such as this year's NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, will not be available due to contracts with other networks. That will include content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm, comprised of both movies and exclusive media. Coverage will include Thursday, Friday and some Saturday and Sunday play during the events.

If that's not enough, fans will also get over 100 days of live golf from over 31 PGA Tour events, hundreds of Grand Slam Tennis matches, and hundreds of worldwide rugby and cricket matches.
