The Most Anticipated Streaming Service of 2017 Is… (2017 Cordies Winners)




Gold trophy2017 was full of both new services and new service announcements. Many major new services were announced including a CBS Sports streaming service, a Disney service, a Verizon live TV service, and more.

But what service has cord cutters most excited in what is becoming a crowded field?

Let’s take a look at the most anticipated service that was talked about in 2017 but did not launch.

#3 ESPN Stand-Alone Service

For over a year now we have been hearing about Disney’s plans to launch a stand-alone ESPN streaming service. While it was announced in late 2016, we learned a ton of details in 2017. The service won’t include games aired on the current broadcast cable ESPN networks, but it will include new and additional sports coverage.

#2 Verizon’s Live TV Streaming Service

For months we heard that Verizon was planning on launching a live TV streaming service in 2017. Late in the year we learned that the live TV streaming service was being pushed back until 2018. Details of the service are still thin, but all signs now point to an early 2018 launch.

The winner for the Most Anticipated New Streaming Service is…

Disney’s New Streaming Service

A few months ago Disney announced that they plan to end their contract with Netflix in 2019 and launch their own streaming service. With Disney’s purchase of Fox, they now own (or soon will own) shows and movies from Disney, Fox, Marvel, Pixar, and more.

Other Services

Vidgo and CBS’s new sports streaming service both came in at 9%.
