ESPN Plus is getting a price hike this month.


Beginning Aug. 12, new ESPN Plus subscribers will pay $5.99 a month, up one dollar from the current rate, an ESPN representative confirmed. This comes as sports like basketball and golf resume following a months-long hiatus during the COVID-19 pandemic

Current monthly subscribers will continue paying $4.99 a month for at least a year, ESPN says, though that could change. The yearlong ESPN Plus subscription will stay at $49.99 a year, and the bundle that includes Disney Plus, ESPN Plus and Hulu with ads will also remain at $12.99 a month. 

ESPN Plus launched in 2018 and racked up 1 million subscribers in its first five months. As of June, it now has 8.5 million subscribers, ESPN says.  The platform features live events, original programming and on-demand content.
