In 2018, cable sports channel ESPN launched ESPN+, a subscription-based streaming service for sports.
It’s a hybrid service that combines on-demand and live sports video content with an ever-expanding catalog of original shows, documentaries, and news from ESPN Insider, the network’s paid news content.
Here’s a quick rundown of how much the service costs and how much you can save if you choose a bundle package.
How much is ESPN+?
If you just want access to ESPN+, it’ll cost you $7 a month or $70 per year. If you do the math, signing up for a whole year instead of going month-to-month will save you about $14.
When it first launched, ESPN+ cost $5 a month or $50 a year. The rates were increased to $6/month in August 2020, and then increased again to $7/month in August 2021. Current subscribers will see the new pricing reflected on their first bill on or after August 13.
An ESPN+ subscription gets you access to all the video content and ESPN articles in the network’s database, including live and on-demand games that aren’t available to you locally, and even the beloved “30 for 30” sports documentaries.
You also gain the option to watch exclusive UFC fights for an additional fee. Existing members can purchase UFC PPV events for $70. Alternatively, you can sign up for an annual ESPN+ subscription with one UFC PPV event included for a total price of $89.98.
Bundling ESPN+ with Hulu and Disney Plus
The bundle includes ESPN+, the regular version of
with ads, which costs $6 a month, and Disney Plus, which costs $8 a month. The $14 monthly bundle is a good value as it saves you $7 each month. You can also upgrade to other versions of Hulu for an additional fee.
If you’re a current subscriber to one of the services, you can upgrade to the discounted bundle here without having to cancel your existing subscription.
