Disney has started telling cable and satellite distributors that it plans to shut down ESPN Classic, which offers footage of old games, on Jan. 1, 2022, reports Sports Business Journal. ESPN Classic launched in 1995 as Classic Sports Network. In 1997, it was acquired by ESPN and rebranded as ESPN Classic.
