ESPN+ launched in April 2018 as a subscription service with additional sporting events on top of what you get with ESPN.
In July, ESPN made a deal with the AAC to bring a majority of AAC basketball games and some football games to ESPN. With that deal, Some AAC games will still air on ESPN, ESPN 2, and ESPNU like they have in the past; however, many of the other games will be moving to ESPN+. This followed a similar deal with the Big 12 that will include some Big 12 football games on ESPN+. So right now is the perfect time to take a look at what ESPN+ is and why you may want to get it.
What Can You Watch?
ESPN+ features a selection of live games from MLB, MLS, Serie A, FA Cup, EFL and NHL. Get in on the action with Live UFC Fight Nights, 30+ Top Rank Boxing cards, Grand Slam tennis from Wimbledon, US Open and Australian Open. Plus access to your favorite college sports like football, basketball, lacrosse, and more.
In May, ESPN+ said they will air 24,000 live events this year.
In addition to games and events, you’ll also find on-demand content. Stream award-winning ESPN originals including 30 for 30, E:60 and O.J.: Made in America as well as the newly released 30 for 30: The Last Days of Knight.

ESPN+ and Disney
With Disney owning ESPN along with Hulu and Disney+ launching this November, many were hoping there would be a deal if they wanted to sign up for all three services. Disney announced that you will soon be able to get all 3 for just $12.99 a month. This is a great deal as all three services would have cost $17.97.
