A Little about ESPN Sister Channels on Suddenlink

ESPN2

ESPN2 is now more like an extension of the flagship channel ESPN—but the aim behind its launch was to keep the programming format informal, and focus more on the coverage of mainstream sports that the younger audience found appealing. Initially, the channel was also used to air technologically experimental broadcasts of events. With time, however, the youth-oriented program format was phased out in favor of the more conventional style.

Currently, ESPN2 simulcasts many game telecast with ESPN—as part of the Megacast broadcast i.e. a single telecast across many ESPN channels with each showcasing coverage from a unique angle. ESPN2 is also the ESPN home for coverage of tennis—with all four tournaments of the Grand Slam as well as U.S. based tournaments aired on the channel. In 2017 ESPN secured the right to Formula One World Championship, and the majority of events is carried by ESPN2.  

ESPNews

To start off with ESPNews featured a rolling news format that included around the clock coverage of sports news and highlights. But with time that changed. And, now the channel primarily airs simulcasts of ESPN Radio shows, overflow event programming, and reruns of ESPN’s lineup of studio shows aired through the week.
