Subscription services — such as streaming platforms, beauty and lifestyle boxes, and food delivery — can come in handy. However, each one does cost money. If you’re looking to cut down on your expenses, monthly or annual subscription services can be a good place to start. If you’re interested in canceling ESPN Plus, here’s how to do it.
How can Cushion help me?
Cushion Bill Pay gives you more visibility and control over your finances than ever before. Many people get hit with bank fees—such as overdrafts and late fees—due to cash flow problems. With Cushion, you can consolidate and track all of your bills and BNPL payments in one place, plan your budget by reviewing what’s coming down the pike, and avoid overdraft fees by temporarily pausing payments that might overdraft your account and resuming them when you are ready.
What Is ESPN Plus?
ESPN Plus is a streaming subscription service that offers exclusive, on-demand streaming of live sports and events. You can catch soccer, golf, UFC, baseball, college basketball, and more with one subscription. Beyond that, you can tap into an extensive database of studio shows, series, select films, game replays, pay-per-view programming, articles, and fantasy sports tools. Then you can watch all of it from your smart television, phone, tablet, or computer.
ESPN Plus has more than 17 million monthly subscribers. Unfortunately, ESPN Plus does not give you access to traditional TV ESPN networks or any of their content.
How Much Does ESPN Plus Cost?
ESPN Plus offers a wide range of content for $6.99/month, which is significantly cheaper than other services out there. Annual subscribers can access the service for $69.99 per year, which amounts to 15% savings. You can also bundle ESPN Plus with Disney Plus and Hulu for $13.99 per month.
