How to watch ESPN Plus on your TV, Roku, computer, & more

ESPN+ is a streaming service offering from ESPN that offers live sports, original content, documentaries, and more. The way things are set up is a little different than the way most other streaming platforms operate, so there are a few things you’ll want to know before getting started. The ESPN+ content actually lives inside of the ESPN app, which is available on just about all streaming hardware now.

Within the ESPN app there is a separate section for the ESPN+ content, which has a fee of $5 per month to access. Whether you are looking to watch ESPN+ on your Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, or even Android TV, the way you access it is very similar. Let’s take a look at how to get started and watch ESPN+ content on your TV.

It may seem like a lot of steps are required to get things set up, but it only takes a minute or two to complete them all. Once you get through the set up once, you dn’t need to worry about it again, and every time you access ESPN from that device you will be able to hop right into the ESPN+ content.

If your streaming hardware doesn’t have an ESPN app available, there are still a few options for you. With older Apple TV devices you can use an app called AirPlay ESPN+ to stream from your iPhone to your TV. For Android users, you could use Cast ESPN+ to push the feed from your phone to a Google Chromecast. Of course, you could always upgrade your hardware to something newer, which would probably offer a better experience overall.

How much does ESPN+ cost?

You can sign up for a standalone ESPN+ subscription for just $5 per month, or you can bundle it with Disney+ and Hulu for just $12.99 per month.

Both of these options come with no long term commitment required, and you can cancel them at any time. There are no differences in the amount of content that is shown between either option, it simply depends on whether you find it valuable to have access to Disney’s new Disney+ service, along with the commercial-supported Hulu plan without Live TV.
