ESPN Plus is raising its annual subscription price to $59.99 in 2021


The cost for an annual subscription for ESPN #Plus subscribers will increase from $49.99 to $59.99 in 2021, according to #Variety. ESPN raised the monthly price of ESPN #Plus earlier this year to $5.99, and now the annual subscription is getting the same treatment.

#New subscribers will start paying $59.99 on #January 8th, 2021, and the new price will reportedly trickle down to existing subscribers a few months later in #March. #Disney had already announced that #Disney #Plus and the company’s bundle of #Hulu, #Disney #Plus, and ESPN #Plus would each cost $1 more starting in #March 2021, raising those prices to $8.99 and $13.99, respectively. #Streaming price hikes have been a theme of 2020; #YouTube TV raised its price, #Fubo followed not long after, #Netflix raised the cost of its most popular streaming plan by $1, and #Hulu’s #Live TV service got a price bump as well.

The pricing for ESPN #Plus’ UFC pay-per-view events will also change in #January. #Currently each match costs $64.99 to watch, but after #January 8th, that will change to $69.99. UFC pay-per-view matches are exclusive to ESPN #Plus in the US, so the price change will affect anyone who keeps up with MMA regularly. #Outside the US, the availability of matches varies depending on the region, but the official UFC site has the most up-to-date information.

These kinds of streaming service price hikes aren’t unusual, and if anything it gives some insight into ESPN and #Disney’s confidence in their service. There are new ESPN #Plus exclusives coming to the service next year, but ESPN’s biggest get is streaming rights to #Southeastern #Conference football, which will bring SEC games to the streaming service in 2021. #We’ll have to see if these are enough for existing subscribers to stick around.
