Spectrum TV Select Plus Customers Can Now Get ESPN+ For Free

Spectrum TV Select Plus customers can now get access to the ESPN+ streaming service for free. Charter and Disney agreed a new distribution agreement last year, which ensured Spectrum TV customers would get access to select streaming services at no additional cost.

The process of adding these free services began earlier this year, when Charter announced that Disney+ Basic had been added to all Spectrum TV Select packages nationwide. ESPN+ was previously confirmed as another service that would be added to Charter’s TV packages in the future, and that’s now in the process of happening.

Beginning today, ESPN+ is available to Spectrum TV Select Plus customers at no additional cost, making it possible for customers to access thousands of hours of live sports and original programming.

Through our collaboration with Disney we are providing a better experience for our customers,” said Tom Montemagno, Executive Vice President, Programming Acquisition for Charter. “Making ESPN+ available to our TV Select Plus customers allows us to cater to sports fans’ evolving viewing habits with one high-value video package that includes the best of linear and direct-to-consumer sports content.”

Similar to the free Disney+ subscription, the free ESPN+ subscription needs to be manually enabled. This can be done by signing in to your Spectrum account, locating the ESPN+ offer and clicking “Activate Now”. The Spectrum customer will then be redirected to an ESPN+ activation page where they can create their ESPN+ account and start streaming.

For reference, ESPN+ and Disney+ accounts tend to be linked via the same email address, so Spectrum TV customers that have already activated a Disney+ subscription will need to use the same account details when activating the ESPN+ account.

Once the offer has been redeemed, and the ESPN+ subscription activated, Spectrum TV Select Plus customers can start streaming the live sports and additional programming ESPN+ offers by downloading the ESPN app on a supported device, such as Charter’s Xumo Stream Box.
