Coolest Things About ESPN+ Streaming Service, From ’30 for 30’ Film Library to Live Sports Events

ESPN dove into the digital world on Thursday with the launch of ESPN+, a $4.99 per month direct-to-consumer subscription streaming service, and a new-look ESPN app.

The content offered includes live events, personalized experiences, niche sports, signature programming, and the full library of “30 for 30” films.

New ESPN president and co-chair of Disney Media Networks, James Pitaro, introduced the new service to media members at the network’s Los Angeles base earlier this week, where he described it as a “new era of innovation at ESPN to serve sports fans in new ways to expand our audience, expand our reach and expand our engagement.”

Pitaro was named as the replacement to former president John Skipper on March 5.

“We are looking at it through two lenses — number one, the maniacal, the fanatic … the sports fan who just wants more sports,” Pitaro said. “And then number two, the sports fan who has been underserved by traditional linear television, who feels like he or she has not had direct access to the sports or teams they love.”

The app will be the next generation of existing the ESPN app, he continued. “It will be our best and most modern expression of our brand. It will be clean and easy to navigate … the basic premise and principle is ‘let’s get out of the way of the content and let the content shine,’” Pitaro said, adding that experiences will be personalized, so that they are “serving the right content to the right user at the right time.”

Included in the 10,000 live events on ESPN+ (which will be identified on the app by a gold flag) are MLB, NHL and MLS games (but no NFL as of yet), and also fringe sports that are usually harder to find, such as rugby, cricket, PGA tour events, English Premier League, lacrosse and boxing.

Former Cornell Big Red football player Pitaro was also very excited about ESPN’s partnership with the Ivy League — which he swears was set in motion before he became president — along with over a dozen mid-major college conferences.

“When you compare it to what is available right now and what is upcoming from our competitors, we very much like our hand here,” he said.

Pitaro also stressed that this was just the beginning of ESPN’s digital offerings. “We love the breadth of content that we are launching with, but this is the first inning and we are going to be adding more content on a regular basis,” he said.

“There will be three core pillars [of the ESPN app], as it really is a three-in-one service,” Pitaro explained. Those are: a first layer of news, scores, highlights, audio, live radio and podcasts; a second layer of TV Everywhere with access to live linear programming; and the third layer is ESPN+, the direct-to-consumer subscription service.

The first content to launch on ESPN+ will be “30 for 30” doc “The Last Days of Knight,” tracing the rise and fall of Indiana University basketball coach Bob Knight through investigative reporting by director Robert Abbott.

“In addition to the deep storytelling, ESPN+ will bring fans closer to their favorite teams and favorite athletes,” said Connor Schell, ESPN’s executive Vice President of  content, who co-founded “30 for 30” with Bill Simmons in 2009, said.

The service will also include new shows such as “Draft Academy,” following a handful of top prospects heading to the NFL Draft, “Quest for the Cup” in partnership with the NHL, and Kobe Bryant’s analysis show “Detail,” where the Lakers legend breaks down “the smallest, smallest level of basketball” action during the NBA playoffs.

The other shiny object that the network executives are most proud to share on ESPN+ is the company’s archive dating back to 1979, making the platform the “single place you can watch every ’30 for 30’ film, to dive in and come out a few days later,” plus boxing libraries, vintage college basketball games, and film from each year of the Masters or Indy 500.

Kobe Bryant: Oscar Makes Me Feel a ‘Greater Sense of Responsibility’ to Bring Diversity to Hollywood

Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant says that his Oscars win last weekend has given him a greater sense of “responsibility.”

“How do I carry this night beyond this night?” Bryant said to Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday night’s broadcast.

“Now there’s a greater sense of responsibility. How do I provide more opportunities for even more diverse and new voices to be heard in this industry?” he said. “In the animation business, there’s a serious lack of diversity.”

Neither Kimmel nor Bryant addressed the backlash that sprouted up after the basketball player’s Academy Award win for Best Animated Short Film for his “Dear Basketball.” During and following the show’s telecast, several people on social media brought up the sexual assault case against Bryant from years ago.

When Bryant was 24, he was accused by a 19-year-old hotel employee of sexual assault in Colorado. He was arrested on a felony charge at the time, but because his accuser was unwilling to testify, the case was eventually dropped.

“Although I truly believe this encounter between us was consensual, I recognize now that she did not and does not view this incident the same way I did,” Bryant said at the time, after the charges were dropped. “After months of reviewing discovery, listening to her attorney, and even her testimony in person, I now understand how she feels that she did not consent to this encounter.” He later settled a civil suit filed by his accuser out of court.

Kobe Bryant Tells Jimmy Kimmel What He Didn’t Have Time To Say At Oscars

No stranger to countdown clocks, basketball great Kobe Bryant was nonetheless brought up a little short, time-wise, on the Oscar stage this past Sunday, and last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live he told Kimmel what he would have said, as he accepted his trophy for Dear Basketball, if he’d had more seconds.
“The most important part I got out,” Bryant said, “and that was thanking my wife and thanking my daughter.” If he’d had more than the five seconds left after director Glen…

Unsurprisingly, ABC’s broadcast of the 2018 Oscars was the most emotionally reacted-to programming during the period measured with an impressive 1,019,966 Emotional Reactions (ERs). As fans flocked to screens around the country to take in the red carpet glamour and cheer on their favorite stars, one person emerged as being a major conversation driver: Kobe Bryant. The former NBA star won the Oscar for best animated film for “Dear Basketball.” Viewers were happily surprised, and congratulated him en masse.

Arie Luyendyk Jr. sparked a firestorm of conversation during part one of the season 22 finale of “The Bachelor” on ABC (127,090 ERs) when he proposed to Becca… but ending up breaking up with her to chose the other final contestant, Lauren. Viewers expressed shock and utter contempt at his actions. This tops off a season in which Arie has often been, uh, less than desirable in the eyes of fans.

James Harden was one of the main drivers of conversation during the NBA game between the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Clippers, which was broadcast on ESPN and generated 87,739 ERs. During the first quarter the Rockets guard’s crossover dribble made Clippers guard Wesley Johnson fall over — and then Harden stared him down before sinking a third point shot. Although Harden denied accusations of blatant disrespect, many viewers felt differently.

Gary Oldman’s Ex Accuses Oscars of ‘Awarding Not One But Two Abusers’ (Report)

Gary Oldman’s ex-wife Donya Fiorentino has called out the Academy following his Best Actor Oscar win Sunday night, accusing it of rewarding abusers.

“Congratulations, Gary and congratulations to the Academy for awarding not one but two abusers with Oscars,” Fiorentino told TMZ on Monday. “I thought we had evolved. What happened to the #MeToo movement?”

Oldman, who portrayed iconic British prime minister Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour,” was accused by Fiorentino in 2001 of physically and emotionally abusing her during their four-year marriage.

Fiorentino, who was the actor’s third wife, claimed in court documents that Oldman once beat her with a phone in front of their young children. She also said that Oldman was spending “over $18,000 in a weekend at hotels in New York, drinking several bottles of vodka, whiskey and wine per day, paying for prostitutes, his hotel room and drugs.”

Also Read: Oscars Viewership Drops to All-Time Low of 26.5 Million

She filed a report with the Los Angeles Superior Court at the time, but police didn’t pursue charges against Oldman.

According to the New York Daily News, Oldman has denied the allegations, calling Fiorentino’s claims “replete with lies, innuendoes and half-truths.”

NBA star Kobe Bryant, whose “Dear Basketball” won best animated short, is assumed to be the second “abuser” that Fiorentino is referring to.

In 2003, Bryant was arrested in Eagle, Colorado after a 19-year-old hotel employee said she was raped by the former Lakers player. In court documents, the accuser said Bryant invited her up to his room under the pretense of touring the hotel and then kissed and groped her despite her attempts to rebuff him, and eventually raped her.

Criminal charges were dropped when the accuser declined to testify, but a separate civil case was settled out of court.

A rep for Oldman did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment. Fiorentino could not be reached for comment.

Gary Oldman’s Ex-Wife Criticizes Oscars for Giving Awards to ‘Not One but Two Abusers’

“What happened to the #MeToo movement?” asks Donya Fiorentino.

Time’s Up made its presence felt at last night’s Academy Awards, but not every moment was seen as a positive one. Two of the most controversial developments concern newly minted Oscar winners who’ve faced serious accusations of their own: Best Actor honoree Gary Oldman (“Darkest Hour”) and Kobe Bryant, who shared the Best Animated Short trophy with Glen Keane for “Dear Basketball.”

Donya Fiorentino, Oldman’s ex-wife, has weighed in on the evening by asking “what happened to the #MeToo movement?”

“Congratulations, Gary and congratulations to the Academy for awarding not one but two abusers with Oscars. I thought we had evolved. What happened to the #MeToo movement?” she said in a statement to TMZ. Fiorentino, who was married to Oldman from 1997 to 2001, accused the actor of physical and emotional abuse following their divorce; her allegations include an incident in which he’s said to have attacked her with a telephone. Oldman has denied these accusations.

Bryant, meanwhile, was accused of rape in 2003. The case was eventually dropped when his accuser refused to testify, but she later filed a civil suit against the NBA star that was settled out of court.
