The company reported earnings per share of $1.87, a figure that was $0.08 short of the Wall Street consensus. ESPN, the company’s largest network, reported a big jump in programming costs – tied heavily to broadcasting rights – and a decline in subscribers. The company still reported a 20% jump in studio revenue year over year. Oil prices were falling Wednesday over concerns about Chinese demand.
