ESPN+: Is it the Right Streaming Service for You?

ESPN+ is a live and on-demand sports streaming service that features live events, original studio shows, and acclaimed series that aren't on the traditional ESPN networks. Along with live sports, you also have access to ESPN favorites such as the full 30 for 30 library, ESPN+ Originals such as Peyton Manning's Peyton's places, and daily sports talk with names like Greeny, Chiney, and Golic Jr.

You can get access to all of the content on ESPN+ in a number of ways:

  • ESPN+ only monthly packages for $5.99/month or the annual plan for $59.99/year.
  • ESPN+ is also available through the Disney Bundle along with Hulu and Disney Plus for $13.99/month.

What Do You Need to Get ESPN+?

ESPN+ brings live sports coverage and commentary shows to a slew of devices directly through the ESPN app. All you need to get started is a subscription, which costs $5.99/month or $60/year, and a compatible device or a web browser via ESPN.com/watch. Download the ESPN+ app from your device's corresponding branded app store and you'll never again miss a second of the action — just as long as you're in range of an Internet connection.

How is ESPN+ Different?

ESPN+ serves as an extension of ESPN providing you exclusive sports content that you wouldn't otherwise get. This is best exemplified by how you access ESPN+. Rather than provide its own standalone app, ESPN+ is located in its own tab housed within the ESPN app. As a wholly sports-centric streaming service, ESPN+ stands out from the pack by providing both live stream coverage and exclusive, on-demand shows and games. Plus, if you're a fan of the UFC, you'll need ESPN+.
