    ESPN Mobile, Time for a Rebound

    When Disney shut down its start up ESPN Mobile service last year, it sent shudders through the Wireless Industry. It had been hoped that Disney's re-branded Sprint service would usher in a new age of target marketed cellular products. However, after nearly $150,000,000 in mobile investments and much lower than expected subscriber adoption rates, ESPN Mobile was shuddered suddenly late last year.

    In a bit of a reversal, Disney has now partnered with Verizon (a Sprint rival) to help relaunch its ESPN Mobile services. However, this time around, Disney will simply provide the content to Verizon over its $15 a month Vcast service rather than branding an entire phone network to the ESPN name. Disney will focus on what it does best - Content - And leave the running and billing of the cellular service to Verizon.

    Disney continues to operate a cellular services targeted toward families with young children called Disney Mobile, which remains on the Sprint network.
