All the sports you’ll need

ESPN+ offers sports fans an easy way to watch their favorite games and keep up with their teams for a truly affordable monthly cost. It can be accessed on a wide variety of devices too.

How much does ESPN+ cost?

While ESPN+ doesn’t offer a free trial, you can sign up for a standalone ESPN+ subscription for just $6.99 per month, or you can bundle it with Disney+ and Hulu for just $13.99 per month. Alternatively, the Disney Bundle is also available with ad-free Hulu for $19.99 per month.

Both of these options come with no long-term commitment required, and you can cancel at any time. Additionally, there are no differences in the amount of content shown between either option; it simply depends on whether you find it valuable to also have access to the Disney+ and Hulu services.

If your streaming hardware doesn’t offer the ESPN app, there are still a few options for you. For Android users, you can use Cast ESPN+ to push the feed from your phone to a Google Chromecast. If you’re using an older Apple TV device, you can use an app called AirPlay ESPN+ to stream from your iPhone to your TV. Another option would be to update your streaming devices.
