Disney subsidiary ESPN is to acquire France Telecom’s Orange Sport TV channel at the end of October. It is reported Orange will distribute the sports channel under the ESPN brand in France and internationally. The channel will be entirely managed by ESPN but Orange will continue to transmit French football league matches on mobile phones until 2012. In 2009, ESPN bought the English football league rights off Setanta.
