The Disney-owned network had announced plans to raise the price of the streaming service from $6 to $7 starting Aug. 13. With the overall price increase, the cost of a yearly subscription also increased from $60 to $70.
According to company officials, as first reported by Deadline, the price for those bundling ESPN+ with Hulu and Disney+ will remain the same for now.
Also, UFC PPV costs will remain the same for now. ESPN raised the price of the fight promotion in December to $69.99 from $64.99. This was the second hike since the fight promotion partnered with the sports network.
Most content can be streamed on up to 3 devices at once with ESPN+, and more screens are not available for an additional charge. UFC-PPV 273 events can be streamed on two devices.
ESPN Plus With UFC PPV
According to ESPN+’s most recent earnings report, it accumulated 13.8 million subscribers, with the majority of those coming from UFC subscribers after the MMA promotion agreed to a multi-year broadcast deal with the company in 2019. Additionally, ESPN+ is now the exclusive distributor of UFC PPV.
ESPN+ launched at a cost of $5 per month with a limited catalog of content. In the end, the price went up to $6 due to the addition of exclusive content such as UFC fights and pay-per-view broadcasts.
UFC has continued to thrive since signing with the Disney-owned property, so the latest price increase reflects the burgeoning popularity of the promotion through ESPN+.
How much will UFC PPV Cost and is there a discount?
You can Subscribe to ESPN Plus for just $7 per month or for even less at $70 per year. If you’re looking for a larger streaming package (perhaps you’re new to streaming or cutting the cord) then the Disney Bundle is the best value by far. You get ESPN+, Disney+, and ad-supported Hulu for $14 per month.
Another great way to save on UFC pay-per-views is to take advantage of ESPN+ bundle deals ahead of UFC PPV events. A year’s subscription to ESPN+ would cost you $70, while UFC PPV tickets are $70 (a $5 increase from last year) – a total of $140. The pay-per-view bundle includes a year of ESPN+ along with the UFC PPV Price for just $90, saving you a cool $50.
Save $50 on the UFC 273 PPV
New ESPN+ subscribers who sign up before the UFC 273 PPV event will receive a $50 discount. After paying $70 for an annual ESPN+ subscription, the UFC 273 PPV costs $70. With ESPN+ you can get both for just $90.
UFC 273 Cost
UFC 273 can be viewed on ESPN+ in the United States for $69.99 or $89.98. The event starts around 10 p.m. Eastern Time.
On ESPN and ESPN+, you can watch earlier fights on the undercard live.
UFC yearly subscriptions Cost are currently $69.99.
At a discounted rate of $84.99, current monthly subscribers can get UFC 265 and an upgraded bundle. Subscribers can also purchase the event for $69.99.
UFC 265 and a yearly subscription are available for $89.98, which represents a savings of more than 30 percent.
What channel is UFC 273 on?
- Early prelims: UFC Fight Pass
- Main card: ESPN+ (pay-per-view)
- Prelims: ESPN/ESPN+
With an ESPN+ subscription, fans can watch the main card of UFC 273 on pay-per-view. As usual, the night is divided into three parts: the early prelims and preliminaries (on ESPN/ESPN+), followed by the main event on ESPN+.
ESPN Plus deals
ESPN Plus has not yet had a Black Friday deal since its launch in 2018. A great ESPN Plus deal or freebie may not appear this November…but we are also open to being pleasantly surprised.
The best way to save money on ESPN Plus is to sign up for an annual deal or get the Disney/Hulu bundle because discounts on the monthly prices of the service don’t seem to be available.
- ESPN Plus – $6.99 a month / $69.99 a year
- ESPN Plus, Hulu, and Disney Plus – $13.99 a month
- Access to UFC 268 + ESPN Plus + access to UFC 267 – $89.98.
Is there an ESPN Plus free trial?
ESPN Plus free trial expired a while ago, and we don’t expect it to return anytime soon. As with the also-removed Disney Plus free trial and HBO Max free trial, the service is cheap enough to give it a try for a few bucks to see if you like it.
