ESPN Latin America (on-air as ESPN) is the Latin American division of ESPN Inc., and broadcasts sports-related programming for the region in Spanish. It was launched on 31 March 1989.

ESPN Latin America, unlike its U.S. sister channels, has more programs related to football and tennis.

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, ESPN4, ESPN5, 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 ESPN 4 would be launched on December 1, 2021 (except in Argentina and Mexico) after Disney rebranded Fox Sports' main channel in Latin America with ESPN Premium, ESPN 4, ESPN 5, ESPN 6, ESPN 7 following on February 15, 2024, after Disney rebranded Fox Sports 1, ESPN Extra, ESPN 4, Fox Sports 2 and Fox Sports 3 respectively.[1][2][3]
