NEW YORK (AP) — ESPN Bet, a rebranded sports-gambling service owned by Penn Entertainment, has launched. Penn signed a $1.5 billion deal with ESPN for rights to the sports media giant’s name in August. Under the agreement, Penn will operate ESPN Bet while ESPN promotes the app across its online and broadcast platforms. A Penn spokesperson told The Associated Press that the app is planned to debut Tuesday afternoon, but did not provide a specific time. ESPN Bet was set to go live in 17 states.
