Disney's bundle of joy, Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia, and Anouk Mertens on Eleven Sports

Aug 15, 2019, 06:00 AM

SportsPro editor at large Eoin Connolly is joined by editorial director Michael Long to discuss Disney's aggressively priced bundle for Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu. The US streaming race, rebundling, and the concept of added-value membership packages - which could, in sport, mean pricing in tickets or other experiences - are all on the table in the OTT era.

Then, as Anthony Joshua prepares to head to Saudi Arabia to retrieve his world heavyweight boxing titles from Andy Ruiz, there's a conversation about the pattern emerging for how events will be promoted in the controversial kingdom, and a brief reflection on the ongoing beoutQ dispute. And to coincide with Women in Sport Week on the SportsPro website, there's an interview with Eleven Sports chief operating officer Anouk Mertens.
