ESPN Caribbean is a regional ESPN service that broadcasts in most Caribbean countries (in English). Operated as part of the ESPN International division, the service is composed of ESPN and ESPN2; both were launched in 2007.

Programming[edit]

As with its American parent, ESPN offers a selection of events in the world of sport, while also providing a Caribbean focus on sporting events popular in that region. ESPN's Caribbean networks air in 32 countries and territories. Key programming includes America’s Cup Yachting, ICC World T20, ICC World Cup and Caribbean Super 50, La Liga, Italian Serie A, Golf Majors, NFL, NBA, MLB and Grand Slam tennis, as well as popular regionalized studio shows like ESPNFC.[1]

ESPN Caribbean also produces a regional version of ESPN.com, which provide sports news and programming information to Caribbean viewers.

ESPN Caribbean also programs ESPN Play, a specialized broadband network which broadcasts thousands of live games and events online each year. Content features enhanced coverage of events seen on ESPN and ESPN2, as well as some events exclusive to ESPN Play. In addition, ESPN Play also offers an archive of local content including ESPN events and original studio news shows. The service is available through participating service providers as part of the programming tier where ESPN's networks are available, at no additional cost. Sports featured on ESPN Play include Caribbean Regional Super50, ICC World Cup, ICC World T20, MLB, NBA, tennis, golf, among others.
