We've talked about chord cutting for almost a decade. It was ...


inevitable especially due to bundling. This is why many of us were so critical of the ACC being so slow to create a ACC Network.

However, I guarantee ESPN and perhaps ESPN2 will still be the most popular network when it goes a la carte. I'm sure Disney will "bundle" ESPN3 with their flagship network. Content is king. Skipper figured that out a long time ago. That's why he paid billions / long term deals with the ACC, SEC, Texas, NFL, MLB, MBA, and most likely the NHL (in 2020). Skipper gets it.

One exception ... the Cartoon or Disney Network could be more popular than ESPN. When kids want it, it's incredibly powerful.
