MLS LIVE to be added to ESPN+ lineup this spring; free to fans until ESPN+

Major League Soccer’s out-of-market streaming package MLS LIVE is set to be one of the featured sports offerings on ESPN+, a new ESPN streaming product that will launch this spring and bring ESPN sports programming to subscribers via a newly redesigned ESPN App.

ESPN+ will be available to fans for just $4.99 a month, and in addition to MLS LIVE, fans will have access to a lineup of other live sports and other ESPN content. The $4.99-a-month subscription represents a significant discount for MLS fans compared to last year’s $79.99 MLS LIVE full-season package.

In addition to the MLS LIVE package, ESPN+ subscribers will have access to hundreds of MLB and NHL games, PGA Tour golf, college basketball and football, among other sports that will be available both live and on demand.

Between the start of the 2018 MLS season on March 3 and the launch of ESPN+ this spring, MLS LIVE will be available to fans for free via MLSsoccer.com, the official MLS App and on Apple TV and Roku.

Details on out-of-market streaming in Canada will be announced at a later date.
