Yeah, if the niche exists, someone will fill it at some point in time. The problem is price. If you have a sports only streaming service, then the true cost of those channels is exposed and it doesn’t get diluted by everyone paying for them as is the case with cable/sat and streamers that have them.While true, I don't think it's a long term issue. It's likely a legacy rights issue that can get resolved as local streaming rights are offered/become available.
Live streaming also offers niche sports a chance for broader exposure. It's kind of telling that ESPN broadcast the American Cornhole League. You can also watch curling and rugby on NBCSN.
Even those who don't like sports watch things like competitive cooking on Food Network, or the Masked Singer.
For Boxing and I think a few other sports, DAZN is making some inroads.
