In a move that’s set to delight a sport-lobing nation, Charter Communications, Inc. has teamed up with The Walt Disney Company to offer ESPN+ at no additional cost to Spectrum TV Select Plus customers. This deal enriches the viewing experience by integrating the streaming service with traditional cable packages, following a trend of blending linear television with digital content to meet the evolving demands of consumers.

Starting now, Spectrum’s TV Select Plus subscribers can access a massive amount of sports content, thanks to the inclusion of ESPN+ in their package. This addition doesn’t just bring live sports to their screens. It also unlocks over 3,000 hours of original programming. The partnership builds on a precedent set earlier this year when Charter and Disney made Disney+ Basic available to all Spectrum TV Select customers, further demonstrating their commitment to offering premium content without extra charges.

“Making ESPN+ available to our TV Select Plus customers allows us to cater to sports fans’ evolving viewing habits with one high-value video package that includes the best of linear and direct-to-consumer sports content,” explained Tom Montemagno, Executive Vice President of Programming Acquisition at Charter. “Making ESPN+ available to our TV Select Plus customers allows us to cater to sports fans’ evolving viewing habits with one high-value video package that includes the best of linear and direct-to-consumer sports content.”

ESPN+ on Spectrum is more than a simple addition of content. It’s a gateway to an exclusive sports viewing experience. With access to over 30,000 live events annually, subscribers can enjoy a wide array of sports, including UFC events, NHL games, college sports, international soccer, and PGA TOUR LIVE coverage, to name a few. The service also offers a deep catalog of on-demand original content like Peyton’s Places, The Captain, and the critically acclaimed 30 for 30 films.

Justin Connolly, President of Platform Distribution at The Walt Disney Company, highlighted the significance of this partnership: “The addition of ESPN+ to Spectrum’s offerings helps bridge the gap between linear TV and streaming services to provide a comprehensive entertainment solution for Spectrum customers.”

For Spectrum TV Select Plus customers, activating their ESPN+ subscription is a straightforward process detailed at spectrum.com/espn+. This package, offered at an additional $10 per month over the TV Select Signature package, not only includes ESPN+ but also a lineup of extra sports channels like MLB Network, NBA TV, and NFL Network. Customers who already enjoy Disney+ through Spectrum can link their accounts for seamless access, ensuring that their subscriptions are conveniently managed under one umbrella.

This partnership between Charter and Disney marks a significant step in the convergence of traditional and digital broadcasting, setting a new standard for how content providers can offer more value and flexibility to their customers. As the lines between cable and streaming get fuzzier and fuzzier, deals like this serve as a possible glimpse into the industry’s future, where access to content becomes as easy as switching on the TV.
