You might be here because you’re wondering: what is ESPN+? What content does it have? Which sports does it cover? Should I get it?
Well, ESPN+ is a sports streaming service with live game coverage, on-demand series and documentaries, and exclusive latest news articles on lots of sports. And ESPN+ gives you all this for only $6 a month. (That’s less than a game beer!)
Do you consider yourself an ultra sports fan? Then this streaming service is for you. So read on to find out everything you need to know about ESPN+.
How much does ESPN+ cost?
ESPN+ costs $6 per month. That’s less than a Dodger dog!
Recently, ESPN+ increased their monthly price to $6. But the good news is, ESPN+ kept its annual subscription at $50.
So we definitely recommend the yearly subscription to save $22 if you’re a sports fan because it’s inevitable that you’ll keep this streaming service all year long.
Can you really put a price on access to lots of sports content? We’re talking entertainment for hours and keeping you up-to-date on the latest sports news.
And here’s a bonus: if you love Disney and Hulu’s (with ads) on-demand content, you can bundle all three streaming services for $13.
You’d save about $6 total if you were to get all three individually. It’s worth that extra takeout meal you could afford to cut out of your diet, Jerry.
Does ESPN+ have a contract or fees?
Other than the monthly subscription fee, ESPN+ has no contract or fees whatsoever. Woot!
How do you watch ESPN+?
This streaming service is compatible with almost any device, as long as you’re able to download the ESPN app. Fortunately, you only need one app to access ESPN and ESPN+.
So, no need to worry about using too much space on your phone. You can keep all of your shopping apps still.
Just open up your ESPN app and tap on the ESPN+ tab, and voilà! You’re in. And you can watch your HD content on three simultaneous streams.
Here’s a list of all devices that can stream ESPN+:
iPhones, iPads, and Apple TV (generations 3 and 4)
Android smartphones and TVs
Amazon Fire TV
On the web (ESPN.com)
But if you want to stream the ESPN channel, you have to sign into your TV provider account on the ESPN+ app. ESPN+ is compatible with almost every TV provider, so that won’t be a problem.
But that also means . . . you have to actually have a TV provider to watch anything besides the live game coverage, like talk shows.
So ESPN+ can’t be a cable TV replacement. You’ll also need to have cable to watch the live NBA and NFL games on the ESPN channels since ESPN+ doesn’t have rights to their games.
So think of ESPN+ as a bonus to feed your sports addiction.
Which sports are on ESPN+?
ESPN+ has live game coverage, articles, and clips for not only popular sports but also a bunch of sports that don’t get much attention.
Are you a fan of rugby? ESPN+ has it. Is your cousin on an NBA G League team? ESPN+ has got your back. Does your daughter love to watch the WNBA? ESPN+ at your service.
But if you only want NFL or NBA game coverage, ESPN+ won’t be your pick.
ESPN+ sports coverage includes the following:
Soccer (MLS, Serie A, FA Cup)
Little League World Series
NBA G League
We should also mention that although there isn’t NFL or NBA game coverage, there is a whole section dedicated to news, fantasy football articles, and scores.
If you’re a UFC fan, then you might already have ESPN+. To get pay-per-view events, you’ll now need to be an ESPN+ subscriber.
Then you’ll have to pay that extra $65 for the actual PPV event. But it’s a small price to pay to watch Conor McGregor take out Donald Cerrone in 40 seconds.
