ESPN Latin America, unlike its U.S. sister channels, has more programs related to football, such as live games from Spain's La Liga.

The Disney/Hearst Corporation joint venture has also added some secondary regional channels for the Latin American region in the last few years, like ESPN2, ESPN3, ESPN Extra and ESPN Premium.

In 2011 ESPN launched a new channel, named ESPN3, which is divided in four segments: Live (broadcasts live coverage of sport events), Compact (resumed sport events), ESPN 3.0 (extreme sports) and ESPN Series (featuring "30 For 30").

In November 2021, Disney announced that a new channel named ESPN4 would be launched on December 1, 2021 (except in Argentina and Mexico) after Disney rebranded Fox Sports' main channel in Latin America.[1][2]
