For years, cord-cutters ditching cable had few options for live sports. Dish will soon offer an Internet streaming service that changes that. For $20 a month, its Sling TV will offer ESPN and a few other channels online. It’s an attempt by ESPN and Dish to reach millennials who have little intention of paying for traditional TV. The risk is that it will also attract existing customers who just want to save money.
