Sports fans are going to love that ESPN has announced that its standalone streaming service, ESPN+, is now available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Sports fans can access the subscription offering through the updated ESPN app on both platforms.
ESPN+ is for viewers who have cut the cord. It costs just $5 a month or $50 per year. This is a bargain for sports fans. Of course, it doesn’t offer every sport or every game and is separate from WatchESPN (an all-access pass to live streams from all of ESPN’s networks). ESPN+ offers live and archived sports streams from regional networks (as long as it isn’t blacked out in your area). You don’t have access to what ESPN is showing on its networks, but at this price for the MLS, baseball and other sports content you get it is well worth it.
It took the service only five months to get over a million subscribers, so people seem to love it. It’s a very smart move to make your streaming service available on as many platforms as possible, and ESPN is doing just that for its standalone offering. Sports fans have a lot to be excited about with this ESPN service.
