ESPN's new streaming video service that comes with live baseball and hockey games will debut on April 12.

Iger's and Disney's hope here is that ESPN+, with its relatively cheap price tag, will be a solid supplement to the likes of Netflix, Amazon Prime and HBO that offer TV shows and movies, but not much sports content.

Michael Paull, the president of BAMTECH Media, said, "ESPN+ will connect fans directly to sports they love wherever and whenever they want".

ESPN, the Walt Disney-owned media brand, says ESPN+ will be an integrated part of a completely redesigned and reimagined ESPN App - an "all-in-one digital sports platform for fans".

The new $4.99-per-month streaming service promises a steady stream of live sports, original content and on-demand programming from its library.

The app comes from Disney's new realigned Direct-to-Consumer and worldwide group - which houses media, technology and distribution of content created by Disney's Media Networks and Studio Entertainment groups.

Educators say years of austerity in many states have led to the stagnation of salaries and the hollowing-out of school systems. Many Oklahoma schools were closed Monday and will remain shut Tuesday to honor the teacher protests.

Disney's technology unit, BAMTECH, a unit of Disney Direct-to-Consumer and global, is backing the services. That will kick off with the Amir Khan vs. Phil Lo Greco fight in Liverpool, England, which will be held on April 21.

MLS - MORE THAN 250 GAMES: At launch, an ESPN+ subscription will provide exclusive access to the entire MLS Live out-of-market schedule (blackouts apply). Also not included in the statement were the major college sports conferences for which ESPN has broadcast rights.

If you are an Iona College alum or a huge fan of Alabama gymnastics, it looks you're going to have to pay a little extra to watch your favorite games and events. As well as accessing it through the ESPN app, it'll also be available through the company's website. Instead, ESPN seems to be targeting people who've already given up on cable, with a package that restores access to some live sports. These fights will not be seen live on regular ESPN TV channels.

MEN'S AND WOMEN'S SOCCER, VOLLEYBALL, FIELD HOCKEY: ESPN+ will have hundreds of games this fall from soccer, volleyball and field hockey as the 2018-19 academic year gets underway.

- Rugby and Cricket: Rugby matches from Sanzaar and Major League Rugby as well as cricket matches in New Zealand and Ireland.
