ESPN Goal Line and ESPN Bases Loaded is a gametime-only cable channel operated by ESPN which launched on September 4, 2010. The channel is active during two college sports seasons; during college football season as Goal Line and through the NCAA Division I Softball Championship for college softball and NCAA Division I Baseball Championship for college baseball as ESPN Bases Loaded. In both cases, the show provides live look-ins and analysis of multiple games in progress. The coverage switches between games to show the most interesting plays, such as offensive teams entering the red zone (football) or with runners on base (baseball/softball).

During college football season, Goal Line operates from 3:00 p.m. ET to approximately 11:30 p.m. on Saturdays during the regular season, and may also be used as part of Megacast coverage of major games as an alternate feed. Bases Loaded operates during the early round of the NCAA baseball championship.

At its launch, the channel was made available to customers of Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks systems,[1] and became available soon after to customers of Verizon FiOS TV .[2] In addition, the channel is also carried on Dish Network, Comcast, Cox Communications, Charter Communications, Sling TV, Cablevision, Hulu and DirecTV.

The channel formerly operated a version of the service during the college basketball season known as ESPN Buzzer Beater, which broadcast on Wednesday nights and Saturdays from December to early March. In July 2017 ESPN announced that it had discontinued Buzzer Beater, in order to "shift resources to better position ourselves for the long-term". The Goal Line and Bases Loaded services were not affected by this change.[3]
