The first call for many sports fans to stream games, matches, documentaries and races is ESPN Plus, the ESPN-owned streaming service that works on TVs, smartphones, tablets, computers and other screens.

With ESPN Plus you can stream loads of different kinds of live sports: MLB, PGA Tour, college basketball, NHL and more are housed on the platform, as well as loads of documentaries and factual entertainment shows about your favorite games.

ESPN Plus' big rivals on the market include DAZN, Fite TV and Apple TV Plus MLS, but the ESPN-owned service has a few advantages. It's cheaper than the competition and is more generalized too, making it a great jack-of-all-trades for people who'll be watching baseball one minute and golf the next.

One of the big draws to the service is that ESPN Plus is more affordable than lots of the competition at $10.99 monthly, and it's even cheaper if you get it as part of the Disney Bundle (more on that below). It used to be more affordable at just $9.99, until an October 2023 price increase, but it's still very competitive.

But even if you can't get or don't care for the Disney Bundle, and despite the lack of an ESPN Plus free trial, this is a great streaming service for sports fans.

What is the ESPN Plus price?

ESPN Plus currently goes for $10.99 a month, or $109.99 a year if you pay annually instead of monthly. You can cancel whenever you want, so, if your favorite sport isn't in season, just cancel and come back when you're ready.

And even better, you could also consider bundling the ESPN Plus subscription cost with a couple of other streaming services — Hulu and Disney Plus — known as the Disney Bundle for $14.99 per month. So it's not just good value in and of itself. Packaged with two of the most popular streaming services around, it's still extremely affordable to package. Here's everything you need to know about an ESPN Plus subscription plan.

We sometimes see other streaming deals on the service too, if you can't wait to see the games.

Save on ESPN Plus — consider the Disney Bundle

If there's any chance at all that you might also subscribe to Disney Plus or Hulu, then you absolutely must check out the bundle that gets you both of those services along with ESPN Plus for a single price. 

It's called the Disney Bundle, and it gets you Disney Plus, the basic Hulu subscription and ESPN Plus all for a single price of just $14.99 a month.

That gets you all the incredible content on Disney Plus, including films and shows from the world of Star Wars — The Book of Boba Fett and The Mandalorian — the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, which includes the excellent WandaVision and Loki. There's also Pixar, Nat Geo and of course the rest of the Disney universe. You get all that, plus Hulu and ESPN Plus.

And it gets even better.

If you're looking for a new way to stream live TV, you can add Hulu With Live TV to your bundle and make the ESPN+ cost make even more sense. That bundle costs $69.99 a month. So now you have ESPN Plus, Disney Plus, and the basic Hulu on-demand service, plus Hulu With Live TV, which gets you dozens of live streaming channels. That's just about the most cost-effective ESPN Plus deal there is.

What's included in ESPN Plus?

The biggest draw is the live streaming of thousands of sports, games and tournaments at any time — day or night. As well as live sports ESPN Plus also offers up original programming from sports talk studio shows, sports documentaries like Man in the Arena with Tom Brady and Dana White's Contender Series, exclusive articles from ESPN's sports writers and, is the exclusive home of UFC.

    Here are the list of live sports offered on ESPN Plus: UFC, Top Rank boxing, MLB, NHL, MLS, PGA Tour, Bundesliga, Premiere Lacrosse League, Emirates FA Cup, LaLiga, Cope del Rey, Carabao Cup, EFL Championship, US Open Cup, PFL, college football, college basketball, college lacrosse, college baseball, college hockey, college wrestling, Little League World Series, Australian Open, Wimbledon, US Open tennis, WTT, The Masters, PGA Championship, cricket, rugby, G-League basketball, National Lacrosse League
  • UFC:
    You can also justify the ESPN Plus subscription due to the fact that it's the exclusive home of UFC pay-per-view events. You can't watch UFC in the US without also having ESPN Plus.
    ESPN Plus is also home to all sorts of original content. Peyton's Places is the main attraction. It's nice to see Peyton Manning do something other than commercials but you'll also find the excellent 30 For 30 documentaries, Stephen A's World, and SportsNation. Other popular ESPN shows like The Jump and NFL Primetime are available on ESPN Plus too.

How can I stream ESPN Plus?

ESPN Plus is available on a whole host of connected devices. Start basic on your laptop and expand to everything from Apple iOS, Android, Amazon Fire sticks and Fire TVs, Roku, Samsung Smart TV, ESPN Plus on Chromecast, PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One/Series X and for the niche techies, the Oculus Go.
