Monthly price of ESPN+ jumping to $9.99 in August
This is a tough sell, to be honest, even if there's an obvious motivation.
The ESPN+ price is rising to $6.99 a month, but the Disney bundle price is remaining the same for now
After a bunch of recent rights acquisitions involving ESPN+, parent corporation Disney is now raising the price for that service.
ESPN+ subscriptions are up slightly despite a lack of live sports, but that’s likely thanks to large growth in Disney+ bundle subscriptions
ESPN+ gained 300,000 net subscribers since the last earnings report in February, but a lot of that may be about the Disney+/Hulu/ESPN+ bundle.
