ESPN doesn't want to "undermine" the value of its TV content by airing games on its digital platforms, John Skipper, the sports giant's president, said at an industry event.

Skipper also defended ESPN's carriage fees, saying fees would be even higher if it switched from bundling channels to offering a la carte programming.
