When it began in 1993, ESPN2 was mostly a channel to show extreme sports and cater to younger viewers. Now, it’s a compliment to ESPN and has become home to soccer, tennis as well as the sports on the Mothership. This Friday, April 1, ESPN2 will reach 100 million homes, just a couple months after the Mothership hit the century mark.
100M Homes for ESPN2 Too
As of Friday, April 1, ESPN2 will be received in more than 100 million homes – No Foolin’! ESPN2, which launched October 1, 1993, has now matched ESPN and its 14-year head start with a nine-digit universe – 100,004,000 homes – just two months after ESPN hit the milestone (now in 100,122,000 homes).
ESPN2’s schedule boasts an extensive lineup of college football and basketball, as well serving as the home of NASCAR’s Nationwide Series and ESPN’s tennis offerings highlighted by all four majors. Studio programming includes an array of sport-specific shows, including NASCAR Now and NBA Coast to Coast, as well as the popular weekday morning block of Mike and Mike in the Morning (6-10 a.m.) and ESPN’s First Take (10 a.m. – noon).
