According to The Verge, citing internal documentation, the subscription cost of ESPN+ will increase to $5.99 per month in August, while a yearly subscription will remain $49.99. Existing monthly subscribers will reportedly be grandfathered in to the old rate for a full year.

The price increase puts ESPN+ at the same cost as the lowest tiered Hulu package and a dollar lower than Disney+ ($6.99/month or $69.99/year).

Also of note from The Verge’s article is that the Hulu/ESPN+/Disney+ bundle will remain $12.99/month.

Sophie Turner Shows Off Growing Baby Bump in Crop Top While Out With Joe Jonas

  Sophie Turner Shows Off Growing Baby Bump in Crop Top While Out With Joe Jonas The 'Game of Thrones' star isn't hiding her bump anymore!Sophie Turner hit the town this week with husband Joe Jonas and there was no covering up her growing belly. While walking down famous Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, California, the pregnant actress was seen sporting a face mask, plaid blazer, crop top, gray leggings, and white sneakers with Velcro closures. The expectant mom was carrying a bottle of Coca-Cola and a tiny purse.

ESPN+ (.99 a month ). You know ESPN . Chances are you already have ESPN on your favorite streaming service. But you need to give ESPN+ a look. Not only will you get live games from Major League Baseball, MLS, Serie A, UEFA Nations League, EFL and the NHL — you'll also get a world of

All of those companies sell packages that include ESPN 's TV channels. All of the ESPN+ content is integrated into a newly redesigned ESPN app I tested an iPhone version that subscribed to ESPN 's TV channels and ESPN+ , and it was easy to pull up live games, replays and other clips playing on any

In May, Disney touted 7.9 million subscribers for ESPN+ at the end of March, a substantial increase on the 2.2 million subs the service had a year earlier (prior to the launch of Disney+ and the creation of the bundle).

On one hand, this seems like an odd time for a price increase, given that the amount of live sports on the docket isn’t overwhelming right now. But in my opinion, this is more of a move to position ESPN+ for the fall, when the service’s main content providers (college sports, European soccer) will theoretically be ramping up. Also, ESPN+ will host the Bundesliga in 2020-21 for the first time and the network is paying a reported $30 million per year for the rights to the top German league, meaning that any way to recoup that rights fee will be welcomed (even if, when taken the grandfathering into account, ESPN+ won’t start bringing in the extra money from existing subscribers until the fall of 2021).

  Report: Players who opt out of NBA return must inform teams by June 24 Any player who chooses to sit out when the NBA resumes play must inform his team by June 24, sources told The Athletic's Shams Charania. A player who declines to play would reportedly lose roughly 1.1% of his salary for each game missed. However, players would not be disciplined for sitting out, according to Charania.

That’s because ESPN+ is built off the back of ESPN ’s already pretty robust omnipresence on PCs, tablets and smartphones. But ESPN+ ’s biggest selling point is that it ’s cheap and its $ 5 - per - month price tag is unlikely to break the bank for any of its subscribers.

Overall, I’m not all that bothered by an increase of one dollar a month, especially given this is the first ESPN+ price increase since its launch over two years ago. But if we see an increase in the yearly cost, or the bundle cost, before the end of the year, then I think we’re going to see some fans begin to get more annoyed.
