Walt Disney‘s ESPN, Fox and Warner Bros. Discovery plan to launch a joint sports streaming service this fall, sources told CNBC on Tuesday.

The platform does not yet have a name or a price.

The competitors expect to form the joint service at a time when the value of sports media rights is spiking, but viewers have moved away from watching on traditional cable.
