The monthly price will increase by $1 to $6.99, and the annual plan will cost $10 more at $69.99. ESPN+ has about 14 million subscribers.

ESPN+ has signed rights deals to stream LaLiga soccer exclusively from August and the golf PGA Tour Live from the next season, as it bets on the rise of streaming and lives sports after a pandemic-led slowdown.
