Entertainment Studios, Inc., one of the largest independent producers and distributors of film and television, with 41 shows on the air, and owner of seven 24-hour HD cable television networks, is launching a new, direct-to-consumer global streaming OTT subscription platform, SPORTS.TV.

So what exactly is on Sports.TV? “High Profile and independent sports networks” means what. Lazy reporting that looks like its lifted right off the press release. Byron at his best.

Basically…he’s creating a junky sports portal in a space where the Player’s Tribune and 27 other sports sites (not to mention Siri and Google Now) already have primacy. Also, I suspect this is a sad attempt for Byron to force his stupid useless rerun channels down the throats of cable providers with a ‘new’ sports network since Spectrum and Comcast have literally laughed off his $10 billion carriage lawsuits. The television industry needs to stop indulging this man; he has low-effort programming that is generally awful.
