We all know ESPN as the worldwide leader in sports. But in the last few years, the business model of this network has changed completely. It has put more importance on its paid service known as ESPN+ or the ESPN app. The app is not a replacement for the TV channel but is a subscription add-on to ESPN which is becoming important for anyone who cannot access the content and coverage of the ESPN cable channel. The app offers it subscribers access to the insider content of ESPN.com and has a huge amount of coverage from the best reporters like Zach Lowe and Bill Barnwell.
Subscribers can also get access to sports coverage, events, shows and other content. There are three subscription choices for ESPN app. The subscription has been priced at $5 per month and $50 if purchased for a year. The app provides occasional deals for its users that has yearly ESPN app subscriptions with UFC Pay-Per-Views and if you love both of them, then you should watch out and you can save some portion of the money you plan to spend on the subscription. Also, you must remember that watching ESPN channels live will need a paid TV subscription from a cable, satellite or a live TV streaming service.
