ESPN+ normally costs $6 per month or $60 for an annual subscription, but new subscribers coming in for UFC 259 can get a 30% discount if they bundle the PPV event with one year of the service. With the deal, you’ll pay $89.98 for UFC 259 and a full year of ESPN+. Without the deal, that combination would normally cost $129.98.
The bundle deal also presents a good alternative for people who might be thinking of signing up for a monthly ESPN+ plan just to watch the PPV. If you sign up for one month of ESPN+ and buy UFC 259, it will cost you $76. The bundle deal gives you 11 more months of ESPN+ for only $14 more.
ESPN+ subscribers can also watch every UFC Fight Night event at no extra cost, and members get access to replays, highlights, more live sporting events, and a large library of ESPN original shows.
After a year, your ESPN+ subscription will renew at the normal $60 per year price unless you cancel or alter it. ESPN+ is also available in a monthly bundle with Hulu and Disney Plus starting at $13 per month. For more info on what’s included with ESPN+, be sure to check out our full breakdown.
