ESPN Australia/New Zealand is a 24 hour sports channel offered in Australia and New Zealand.

Initially, ESPN was known as Sports ESPN on the Optus Vision cable television system, and focused on sports aired by its home network in the United States, including American football, baseball, and basketball. In order to expand its local reach, it has shown an increasing amount of football games including La Liga in Spain, Italian Serie A (shared with Setanta Sports Australia), UEFA Champions League (shared with SBS), World Cup qualifying games, and Major League Soccer. Also on the network schedule are rugby matches and Cricket matches.

ESPN Australia has also commenced showing locally-produced content including Australian versions of PTI and SportsCenter. They also air a soccer discussion show twice a week called ESPNsoccernet PressPass which is hosted by Derek Rae.

ESPN HD was one of first five channels to be available in HD when Foxtel HD+ launched. ESPN HD commenced in June 2008.
