ESPN, Inc. Key Developments

MSG Networks and ESPN New York 98.7FM Extend Radio Broadcasting Agreement

MSG Networks and ESPN New York 98.7FM have agreed to a multi-year extension of their agreement that ensures 98.7FM will continue as the exclusive radio broadcaster of New York Knicks and New York Rangers games. ESPN Radio 98.7NY has broadcast Knicks and Rangers games to sports fans since 2004. The agreement includes full pre- and post-game coverage for both teams, and a continuation of a multi-tiered cross-promotional effort between The Madison Square Garden Company, including the Knicks, Rangers and MSG Networks, and ESPN New York 98.7FM.

BT Sport and ESPN Signs Seven Year Agreement

BT Sport and ESPN announced that it have signed a seven-year agreement to expand the range of company content on BT Sport. The agreement also covers the use of the company brand and potential joint digital media initiatives. The new long-term collaboration builds on the successful relationship between both brands following the acquisition of ESPN's UK and Ireland television business by BT plc in 2013. As part of the new deal, BT Sport has the opportunity to use the company brand in a range of different ways with the company remaining part of the BT Sport channel line-up for the long-term. The deal will see BT Sport expand the amount of programming it receives from the company, up to 5,000 hours per year. Among a wide range of content, programming supplied during the course of the agreement will typically feature the Verizon IndyCar Series, NCAA College Football and Basketball, X Games, the AFL (Australian Football League) and more. There is also enhanced availability of existing content supplied by ESPN, such as the Emmy Award-winning ESPN Films documentary series, plus the introduction to BT Sport of world football show ESPN FC, and some of the most well-known brands in United States sport television including Pardon The Interruption and Around The Horn. In the months ahead, BT and the company will continue to explore ways the two companies can collaborate around various digital media initiatives. Additional elements to the deal include the ability for BT Sport to take in key company supplied programming directly to its studios in London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park handing greater flexibility and efficiencies to both parties.
