ESPN May Be In More Trouble Than We Thought – CINEMABLEND


In the month of October 2016, ESPN lost a whopping 621,000 subscribers who switched cable/satellite plans or dropped their plans entirely. That’s more than the number of people that watch many of its analyst-driven shows. And even though this is the worst month for the network, it’s not at all the first alarming exodus of viewers. In 2011, ESPN had 100.1 million subscribers, which is where things peaked, and now the numbers have dipped down to just over 88 million, with around 4.2 million of those 12 million subscribers leaving just in the last year. This is not a trend that appears to be going away, especially with more sports networks, websites and streaming platforms becoming available. (Perhaps the Hulu deal will help, but probably not that much.)
