Sports app ESPN Plus is one of the best streaming services to get if you're a fan of live sports, as well as documentaries and original programming about a wide range of games, and we're here to guide you if you need help streaming ESPN Plus in the Hulu app.

You see, if you want to, you can like ESPN Plus with your Hulu account, to get all your content in just one spot. This is because both apps, as well as Disney Plus, are owned and published by Disney.

To watch ESPN Plus through the Hulu app though, you do need to be subscribed to both services — the cheapest way to do this is with the Disney Bundle, which combines both and Disney Plus for a lower cost than any two of them individually. It's a great streaming deal that we recommend to everyone.

Once you have both, we'll run you through the steps required to watch ESPN Plus content through the Hulu app. If you've got the sports service and want to use other screens too, we have a few other guides below that may help.

Here's how to add ESPN Plus in the Hulu app: 

  1. Visit the account section on the Hulu website (opens in new tab).
  2. In the "Partner add-ons" section, look for ESPN Plus.
  3. Click the "Plus" symbol.
  4. Click "Review changes."
  5. Finish up, and you're done.
  6. Once that's sorted, you'll be able to watch ESPN Plus right from inside the Hulu app.

What do you get with ESPN Plus?

ESPN Plus means a ton of live sports, including college basketball, college football, soccer (that's football to everyone outside of North America!), hockey, MMA, boxing, cricket and more. 

And ESPN Plus is also where you'll find a world of new original shows, including the excellent Peyton's Places with Peyton Manning, and TJ and Boomer on NFL Primetime. The sports streaming service is also the exclusive home to UFC and it's the only place where you'll find the UFC's pay-per-view events.
