How to Watch ESPN with Disney Plus
On arrival early this year, the Disney Plus streaming service shook up the world. It brought with it a full Disney library crammed with your childhood memories and familiar tunes. But you also get fresh and original content, along with famous franchises.
But what if you like Disney Plus but like watching ESPN just as much? You definitely want both subscriptions, but maybe you’re not sure if you should go for it. If that’s the case, you might want to consider subscribing to a Disney bundle that features ESPN+ and Hulu as well. That way, you get to enjoy all three streaming services at a lower cost.
How to Sign Up for Disney Bundle
The easiest way to sign up to a Disney bundle and enjoy all the great content from ESPN+ and Hulu is if you’re a new subscriber. Don’t get me wrong, you can get the bundle if you’re an existing Hulu or ESPN+ subscriber as well, but we’ll get to that later. To get the Disney bundle all you need to do is:
- Visit the Disney Plus website by following this link.
- Select “Buy Now”, which will be under the listed bundle.
- Enter your email address and then click “Agree and Continue”.
- Enter your billing information and proceed to follow the instructions on the screen. Then click “Agree and Subscribe”.
That’s it. You’ve signed up for all the TV shows, movies, and sporting events you like. One thing to remember, though, is that this bundle supports ads. At present, there’s no ad-free version of the Disney bundle. However, if you’re looking to lower the number of ads you see, and you’re okay with spending a bit more money, there is a solution.
You can subscribe to the Disney Plus bundle directly from Hulu and get the No Ads subscription. The thing is, you can’t watch ESPN+ on Hulu nor the Disney Plus app. So, the advertisements will be included while watching ESPN+.
In Case You Already Are an ESPN+ Subscriber
You’re still eligible to buy the Disney Plus bundle if you’re currently subscribed to ESPN+. All you need to do is make sure you’re using the same email you’ve used for your ESPN+ subscription. When you’re done upgrading to the bundle, Disney Plus will credit the resulting money savings to your new price in total. However, if you encounter some difficulty with this process or have any questions, refer to the Disney Plus help page to try and sort out the issue.
Other Ways to Watch ESPN+
ESPN+ is a Disney owned streaming service, so it makes sense that it’s included in a Disney Plus bundle. It offers a lot of exclusive sports events, and original programing. If you’re a fan of UFC and international soccer, ESPN+ gas got you covered. Similarly, for the fans of NHL and college sports, it’s the one subscription not to miss out on. But how can you watch ESPN+? You can subscribe by visiting the website.
- Download and install the ESPN app on your mobile device or smart TV. You can do that for Android here and iOS here.
- Open the app and tap on the “Settings” gear, in the upper right corner of the screen.
- Click on “Account Information” and then “Log Into ESPN Account.” You will then receive an activation code.
- Go to https://espn.com/activate using your mobile device or your computer and type in the code.
- Log in using your information and password.
- You will receive the information that your ESPN+ account is now linked. You will also notice the ESPN+ tab in your ESPN tab.
Can You Cancel the Bundle?
If you’ve gone through all the trouble of subscribing to the Disney Plus bundle, but then decide you don’t really need it, you can always cancel it. It might have seemed like a good deal, but if all you really watch is ESPN+, you don’t actually need the whole bundle. Therefore, you can just keep the $4.99 subscription.
If you choose to cancel the bundle, you’ll still have access to all three services until the end date of the billing period. However, there are no refunds for any of the previous months, not even partial refunds.
How Do You Like Your ESPN?
Do you prefer streaming services filled with movies or TV shows, or just sports? Either way, it’s great to have options. And Disney Plus bundle has something for everyone. For families and people with eclectic taste, ESPN with Disney and Hulu sounds like an amazing deal. But remember, you can always change your mind and cancel anyway.
