SI TV on Amazon Channels

Sports Illustrated launched its $5-per-month streaming service last fall exclusively through Amazon Channels, and now it's preparing to open up for a wider release. Soon, users will be able to subscribe directly and watch on Roku, iOS, Android and web browsers. The modestly-priced service won't livestream games to compete with the Disney-backed ESPN+, which just went live, or the upcoming Bleacher Report Live. Instead, Sports Illustrated TV offers its studio shows, sports films and the brand's lauded documentaries.

"As a sports fan, I am excited that there is such a healthy and a lot of different ways to engage with sports content," Sports Illustrated TV head of programming Josh Oshinsky told Deadline. "I don't think it's an either-or between ESPN+ or BRLive or us. We do things that they don't."

Sports Illustrated TV will feature ongoing weekly studio analysis shows like The Crossover, Planet Futbol and The Line. The streaming service's other content includes documentary series like Under the Cover, three new 2018 swimsuit specials and the first feature-length doc created specifically for SI TV, We Town.
