    If you don't subscribe to the CordCutter weekly newsletter, you should. It's a great way to keep abreast of the streaming TV landscape which is evolving pretty rapidly.

    Here's the latest issue about ESPN+ and more.

    After nearly two years of build-up, ESPN will launch a standalone streaming video service on April 12. The service, called ESPN+, will cost $5 per month or $50 per year, but won’t overlap at all with ESPN’s cable channels. That means no Monday Night Football, no Sunday Night Baseball, no playoff basketball, and no SportsCenter.

    It also means no playoffs or championship matches for many of the sports that ESPN+ does cover. The rights to those events are still carved up among major broadcast and cable networks, regional sports networks, and ESPN proper. As a result, ESPN+ doesn’t make cutting the cord any easier.

    Would it be reasonable to have the newsletter posted here the way Risks Digest is?
