ESPN+ Reaches 14.9 Million Subscribers





In Disney’s Q3 earnings report today, the company shared subscriber numbers for each of its streaming services. ESPN+ reached 14.9 million subscribers, a 1.1 million increase for the quarter.

The price of ESPN+ is going up tomorrow to $6.99/month or $69.99/year, up from $5.99/month and $59.99/year. During Disney’s last quarterly earnings call, Bob Chapek, Chief Executive Officer, The Walt Disney Company explained that Disney would be focusing on “the expansion of our unrivaled portfolio of multiyear sports rights deals for ESPN and ESPN+” which was likely a factor in the company’s decision to raise the price of the service.

That expansion includes a new deal with the NHL to include all out of market games in ESPN+ subscriptions. ESPN+ has also recently acquired rights to SEC football, PGA Tour Live, Wimbledon, and La Liga.

While the price of ESPN+ is going up, there will not be a change to the price of the Disney Bundle. You can still sign up for the bundle with Hulu, ESPN+, and Disney+ starting at $13.99.
