By Dan Stapleton | 10 January 2017 11:53:37More than a dozen people have already asked ESPN about the recent decision to cut the sports channel from its sports channel watch list.
It’s not clear if the decision to eliminate the channel was prompted by the fact that ESPN had previously been involved in an antitrust dispute with Comcast, which had accused the sports network of monopolising cable TV, the Los Angeles Times reported on Monday.
But many analysts and industry watchers have said that Comcast’s antitrust suit was politically motivated, and that the decision by ESPN was also driven by politics.
This was not the first time that ESPN has been cut from the list.
In 2012, ESPN was forced to pull from its NBA TV channel because it had lost its license to carry the network’s coverage of the NBA Finals.
The network was rebranded to ESPN Classic.
ESPN Classic, a live, streaming version of ESPN’s basketball programming, was also dropped from the Watch list in 2016, but it was later reinstated.
In a statement, a ESPN spokesperson said the decision was made by ESPN’s executive producers and anchors, and was based on the network “growing revenue and its ability to continue to grow its product.”
As we said in November, ESPN Classic is a live stream, so we have no intention of removing the service from our Watch list,” the spokesperson added.
“As we’ve said before, we’re committed to bringing our basketball coverage to a new audience. “
We also want to make it clear that we don’t view this as a sign that we’re going to be shutting down ESPN Classic,” the spokesman said.
“As we’ve said before, we’re committed to bringing our basketball coverage to a new audience.
We look forward to continuing to bring ESPN Classic to more platforms in the future.”ABC News reported on Saturday that the network was considering relocating to a different site in New York, where the majority of its programming is currently filmed.
“This is a tough day for ESPN, and we are all disappointed in the decision,” ABC News’ Jeff Zeleny wrote in a blog post on Saturday.
“We are working to move to a smaller facility in the city of Los Angeles.
The ABC network has always prided itself on its commitment to diversity, and our commitment to equality, and today’s decision is a disappointment to all of us.
We wish ESPN the best of luck moving forward.”ESPN’s move to move the network to a location near Los Angeles comes after the network last year announced plans to build a new, 100-acre campus at the Los Alamitos Nuclear Power Plant in New Mexico, which would make it the largest nuclear power plant in the world.
The company announced the move in January to save on cost and energy, which was seen as a key part of its argument against Comcast’s bid to buy Time Warner Cable.
The move also coincided with Comcast’s announcement that it had bought NBCUniversal for $45.7 billion.
“We want to thank the employees, the partners, and the fans who have made ESPN the most beloved sports network in the history of the world,” a spokesperson for the network said in a statement.
“While we are disappointed with the decision, we are committed to our team of writers, analysts, and other talent and we will continue to do the work to bring our audiences the most engaging content possible.
We will continue with the long-term vision of delivering the best sports content in the US and around the world.”
