New Online Streaming Service Disney Plus Will Affect XFL TV

Variety is reporting that last week Disney disclosed that it would offer a streaming bundle package of Disney Plus, ESPN Plus and the advertising-supported version of Hulu for $12.99 a month. Disney, which owns ESPN, ABC, and Fox, which are major TV partners for the XFL.

Disney Plus is set to launch on November 12th. Well ahead of the XFL kick off in February 2020. For the $12.99 price, fans should be able to watch all the XFL games online.

We are unaware of any home team blackout rules when it comes to XFL games. Fans should be able to view the XFL games online via one of these platforms as well as on cable.

Cable television has been hemorrhaging subscribers for the last several years. Live sports has been the only draw to keep fans from canceling their TV subscriptions. Disney sees the writing on the wall for cable TV and has dumped hundreds of millions of dollars into their streaming platform.

The XFL of 2001 would not have gotten the same TV deal as the XFL in 2020. The current state of cable TV helped the XFL negotiate with the networks.

For XFL UK fans, the company has said that Disney Plus will be in “nearly all major regions of the world within the next two years.” The question is will ESPN Plus be part of that roll out as well. Right now UK XFL fans have no way of watching games at this time unless they use a VPN service.
