ESPN+ launched a few months ago, and it has offered up some pretty impressive streaming content, including loads of exclusive UFC content. Which it paid around $1.5 billion for. And has now amassed around two million subscribers. But ESPN+ is just getting started, and its biggest original show is about to debut this Monday.
On February 11, a new show called The Boardroom will be debuting, and it's hosted by Kevin Durant. The first two episodes will be premiering on Monday, and it's looking to be a pretty interesting show. This is a new show that ESPN has enlisted Durant's Thirty Five Media company to produce, there will be new episodes coming every week.
ESPN+ also has a number of other shows that will be coming in the near future, not to mention the fact it also has loads of streaming sports content coming this weekend. Over the weekend, you'll be able to watch the NHL Game of the Day - which is the Flames at the Penguins on Saturday and Capitals at Ducks on Sunday.
When it comes to college basketball, Yale will be at Columbia on Friday night. There are a number of CBB games set for Saturday as well, seeing as Saturday is always a big day for college basketball. This includes Vermont at Hartford, South Dakota State at North Dakota State, Yale at Cornell, UNC Greensboro at Wofford and Belmont at Tennessee Tech.
This is just a teaser of the tons of content that will be available on ESPN+ this weekend. It's definitely worth starting your free trial to take advantage of all of this content.
ESPN+ is an add-on streaming service, so it won't get you the regular ESPN channels or content. If you have cut the cord, you won't get a ton of sports content from this service, it's meant to be an add-on to what you already get. And that is why it is so cheap, coming in at just $4.99 per month. Considering the amount of content that ESPN+ has though, $5 is not bad.
With a ESPN+ subscription you also get less ads. That's available on ESPN+, ESPN.com and on its app on supported devices. It's also available on most streaming services. This includes Android smartphones/tablets, Android TV, iOS, Apple TV, Chromecast, Fire TV & Tablets, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Roku Players & TVs as well as Samsung smart TVs. So all of the major platforms are covered here.
If you're big into sports, no matter the league, then ESPN+ is going to be one of those streaming services that you are going to want to check out.

But the fact that it does not replace ESPN's current channels, is actually a good thing. As this doesn't become a mandatory streaming service to pay for if you watch a lot of sports.
