The two channels are produced by ESPN Star Sports, the ABC-Capital Cities’ sports network’s joint venture with News Corp.’s Asian satellite sports provider, Star Sports. The two channels are currently available exclusively in Hong Kong on now TV. ESPNEWS is the first 24-hour sports news channel in English in Asia.
ESPN Star Sports and PCCW will also soon launch Mobile ESPN, a live streaming service available to PCCW customers in Hong Kong.
