ESPN lost another two million subscribers in fiscal year 2018 (hat-tip Outkick The Coverage). In fact, since 2011 ESPN has lost 15 million cable and satellite subscribers. Those 15 million lost subscribers equate to $1.44 billion a year in lost yearly revenue that ESPN will never be able to recapture. One could say it’s strictly the way the business is going these days with all the alternate means of watching sports, the cable unbundling and all the streaming options, but I think it also has to do with the fact that we’re just tired of all the liberal commentators yammering all the time about political & social issues like gun control, the NFL’s embrace of the anti-anthem protests, and Caitlyn Jenner’s ‘Most Courageous’ award to name just a few.
The wonderful Prager University sums it up well in this recently video release on the subject.
