We could have used that bar circa 2000 when you needed to find a bar for a college hockey or tournament viewing event and only they had access to some oddball satellite network. So much better now with streaming and currently with streaming that has decent video quality, no dropouts and the camera guy actually tracks the puck.
People still whine, though.

You're in a chair in the sky.

ESPN+ going up to $9.99/month or $99.99 a year in August, a 43% increase.

Strange. Just got an email rom Google Play saying I'd be charged $69.99 on September 9 to renew.
Opened the ESPN app to watch the U21 lacrosse game and it confirmed $99.99.moon

Getting a new email is easy, if you're willing to make that one change. You could subscribe to a new account at the old price for one more year and let the old account's subscription expire.

I just signed up for a year for the first time. I also used a credit card "offer" that gave me 20% off any charge to ESPN+, so I wound up paying $56 for 12 months. Hockey and lax seasons are worth that alone. They should give me another discount if I agree to watch CU football.

I don't know if this deal is still available, but we signed up for a package of ESPN+, Disney+ and Hulu (with ads) bundled together at $13.99/month about a year ago, which at the time was less than the total of any two of those individually, and that's still what we're getting charged. Of course if all you want is ESPN+ that's still more than $99.99/year, but we use the others all the time - many of the best feel-good sports movies ever are on Disney+.

They just announced that the ESPN+/Disney+/Hulu (with ads) bundle is going up to $14.99/month in December. Will be $12.99/month if you're willing to watch ads on Disney+

cant really get worked up about ads.. its the way it all will be soon.. And the espn+ cost is still cheaper than it ever was on the other platform for vastly more content.

Seems to me what rankles is the size of the increase, not so much the resulting cost. Not to mention what the suit that runs Disney is paid ($32.5 million).
