A Little about the ESPN Channel

ESPN, which is short for Entertainment and Sports Programming Network is one of the most important channels in any lineup for the modern American audience. The network − co-owned by the Walt Disney Company and Hearst Communications – was founded in 1979 in Bristol, CT. From here on, the channel has gone into operation via auxiliary studios across the U.S. including Miami, New York City, Las Vegas, Seattle, Charlotte, Washington D.C., and Los Angeles.

Today, ESPN reaches approximately 76 million homes around the U.S., and broadcasts in over 200 countries. Although there has been a drop in the audience since the rise of streaming TV services, it is still going strong. Other than the flagship ESPN channel, there are quite a few other ESPN sister channels including ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN Desportes, etc.
