ESPN+ is now available

Check it out at ESPN.com . There is an icon in the upper right hand corner.

I just joined through Facebook.

It's free for a month then you will be billed 4.99 a month.

I don't know what devices work with ESPN+. I couldn't find a link.(edit -no Roku at startup but they do have Amazon Fire TV on the list)

They are supposed to have an MLB game every day during the regular season.

Plus an NHL game every day starting next season.

Do you post with a phone or something?

Just go to the task bar and CTRL C/CRTL V to copy and paste the link. Posting Links 101.


Also worth mentioning about this service, it appears it's now the exclusive home of the ESPN 30 for 30 documentaries after they air on TV.

The newest one: The Last Days of Knight (Bobby Knight documentary) is premiering early on the service.

No Roku sucks.
Blackouts also suck.
Other than that, it seems like a decent deal. If it ends up being like the ESPN app, it would be well worth the $5 a month. Interesting that they are streaming NHL games.

Re: ESPN+ is now available

I noticed some NHL playoff games were available on replay this morning after I was told by an ESPN+ rep that only the MLS would have replays.

In the past NHL.TV wouldn't have playoff games available for 72 hours because they were national broadcasts but here's hoping ESPN+ has some other kind of agreement.

Sucks about no Roku and I was having problems logging in with Amazon Fire(stick) yesterday.

Any word on College Football or Basketball Division II on ESPN+?

I don't know why they don't do minor league sports(Minor League Baseball and Hockey). The MILBTV app sucks and the AHL and ECHL are so overpriced I don't see why anyone would want their product.

I already have an MLB.TV account so what happens if you click on a game at ESPN+. I don't want to accidently order it again since I originally signed in with Facebook it's hard too say what would happen.

Re: ESPN+ is now available

So ESPN+ has the same blackout rules right? I'd subscribe if it wasn't so I could watch Dodger games

Re: ESPN+ is now available

I’m guessing so, but at 9:10 CST tonight, they are showing Nationals vs Dodgers.

Re: ESPN+ is now available

I received mis-information from 2 different ESPN + reps over the phone today.

They both said that MLS Live was an ad-on(like MLB.TV) and there would be an extra charge for that service.

WRONG ANSWER!!! It's part of the monthly ESPN + fee.

I was having trouble accessing MLS Live on two different computers and it was asking me for a 7 day free trial when I was already a subscriber.

Another thing one of them said that MLB.TV was only good during the baseball season. If you subscribe to MLB.TV through MLB.TV it is good year round. So if you were interested in subscribing to MLB.TV through ESPN + ,I would call and ask if it was good year round first before subscribing. Same is true about NHL.TV when they start that officially next hockey season.

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/09/20/espn...ve-months.html

ESPN+, the streaming video service from the sports network, has reached more than 1 million paid subscribers, the company said Thursday.

It's an impressive feat, given the service just launched in April.


ESPN+ will stream 10,000 live sporting events in its first year, in addition to on-demand content and past sporting events. It features games from Major League Baseball, the National Hockey League and global soccer events. It does not require its subscribers to buy a cable or satellite subscription, appealing to cord-cutters. The service costs $4.99 per month, or $49.99 per year.

"Combining sports, technology and the ESPN brand is a very powerful combination, and we are just getting started," Jimmy Pitaro, president of ESPN and co-chair of Disney Media Networks, said in a statement. "Very quickly, a wide range of sports fans have seen the value of ESPN+. With high quality programming and an outstanding user experience, ESPN and DTCI [Disney Direct to Consumer and International] are expanding the ways Disney is serving sports fans."

The ESPN+ service is part of parent company Disney's plans to increase its presence in the over-the-top streaming business. Disney also plans to launch a branded streaming service of its movies and original programming in 2019 and will pull its content off of Netflix. In addition, if the Disney-Fox acquisition formally closes, it will have a larger stake in streaming service Hulu.

Disney shares were up 1.1 percent After the announcement.

Re: ESPN+ is now available

Have they said anything about their subscription price for NHL.TV?

One good thing is you can watch 5 streams at the same time while the NHL.TV app allows only 3 streams at a time.

I wish they would get AHL.TV and ECHL.TV. Both are cheaper than last years versions and is supposed too be better quality.

That's a good reminder for me to cancel my free trial this weekend.

I like the content but I just haven't read it enough to pay for it.

Re: ESPN+ is now available

NHL.TV is a pay service that you can choose too get.

It doesn't come as part of ESPN+ but as an added extra.

They are supposed to show one free NHL every day(like they did with MLB and MLB.TV).
