Does ESPN+ Have a Free Trial? 

Unfortunately, the answer is “no.” While ESPN+ did offer a free trial in the past, it hasn’t offered one since early 2020, when the offer was removed. Today, there is no way to try ESPN+ before you subscribe.

How Long Was The ESPN+ Free Trial?

When ESPN+ first launched in 2018, it offered an incredible 30 day free trial. You could try the service with no commitment for a full month. As the subscriber base grew, ESPN+ reduced the length of its free trial to 7 days, likely in an attempt to reduce the number of people who used the service for a month and then cancelled it without paying.

When Was The ESPN+ Free Trial Removed?

There was no announcement about this move, so as far as we can tell, ESPN+ quietly removed the free trial option from its website in early 2020. 

Will The ESPN+ Free Trial Come Back? 

Unfortunately, there’s no way to know whether or not the free ESPN+ trial will come back. We would bet that, if subscriber numbers start to slip in the future, ESPN+ may try to entice some new cord-cutters to its service by providing another week-long free trial. For now, though, there’s no way to try this service for free.

How Much Does ESPN+ Cost? 

If you do want to try out ESPN+, you can get started for a low price, thanks to its $4.99/month subscription cost. You can sign up for a single month, and cancel your subscription at any time within your first month to avoid being charged for another month.

While this isn’t as nice as a free trial, you can still see if ESPN+ is right for you for a relatively low price.

Did you know that ESPN+ can be bundled with Hulu and Disney+ for a fee of $12.99/month? If you take advantage of this offer, this is a great way to get a wide variety of streaming content for a low price.

Hulu has a huge selection of content, including Hulu Originals like The Handmaid’s Tale, as well as licensed content from FX, A&E, ABC, CBS and Fox. Hulu costs $5.99/month for an ad-supported subscription or $11.99/month without ads, but the best way to subscribe is by bundling it with ESPN+ and Disney+ for $12.99/month. With more than 80,000 episodes of TV and a good variety of movies, it’s a perfect pair for ESPN+.

Disney+ is also a great service to use alongside ESPN+, thanks to its huge library of family-friendly content from Pixar, Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, and much more. It lets you stream on 4 devices, and only costs $6.99/month if you don’t bundle it with Hulu and ESPN+.
