Pono will launch a streaming service this fall that it says will bring its subscribers closer to their favorite sports shows.
The move by Pono follows ESPN’s announcement that it would buy Pono, a streaming platform launched in 2011 that has gained momentum and is poised to make an early impact on the cable and satellite TV market.
The Pono platform will be available to customers for free, with Pono paying $20 per month for access to its premium channels.
Pono’s offering will include ESPN and other major sports, including the NFL, the NBA and the NHL.
The company has yet to reveal a pricing structure.
Pomodoro, which stands for Pay Per Minute, offers free, ad-supported streaming of popular content.
It offers a variety of pay-per-view options, including a live pay-champion match, as well as on-demand content.
Pono plans to launch a pay-TV service in the next few weeks.
The Pono service will be supported by ESPN’s “All Access” streaming service, which offers live streaming of its network programming, including sports and news.
The service will also include access to ESPN’s original content and its studio shows, including “Inside the NFL” and “The Herd.”
