ESPN has confirmed that its streaming service is about to get more expensive. Starting Aug. 23, ESPN Plus will cost $10 a month or $100 a year. That's up from $7 a month or $70 a year.
There will be no change in the cost of the Disney Bundle, which includes Disney Plus, ESPN Plus and ad-free Hulu for $20 a month, or $14 if you get Hulu with ads. UFC pay-per-view events also won't be affected.
Subscribers to the streaming service are expected to be notified next week, as reported earlier Friday and confirmed by ESPN Plus.
