How To Watch ESPN Online

ESPN is one of the most popular ways to watch live sport, and for good reason – as perhaps the most famous sports broadcasters in the world, it’s amazingly easy to keep up with whatever sport you choose. Whether you’re into football, tennis, golf, snooker, or something totally obscure, chances are someone will be talking about it on ESPN.

So how to get hold of all that good stuff? It can seem a bit complicated, especially when you realise how many different channels, packages and services Sky is offering. Not only that, what happens when you’re not able to be home for your favourite game?


We’re here to help you understand ESPN’s offer, and find a way of watching the channel anywhere that suits you best. Here’s how to watch ESPN online.

What type of device?

If you aren’t watching on a TV, then you’re going to want to use the internet to get access to ESPN. But what service you want might change depending on what kind of device you have.

If you’re using a laptop, you can stream directly from the ESPN Player website, with access to all their content directly in your browser, depending on what you’ve paid for (you’ll need to login before viewing). This is good because it optimizes the use of a larger screen and is easy to navigate.

If you’re on a mobile device (like a smartphone or tablet) you’re going to want to take advantage of ESPN+ – their app that allows you access to all the channels that you’ve paid for. The app is available on iOS in the App Store and on Android in the Play Store.

What package to go for

There’s a dizzying array of different ESPN offers available, and many of them may overlap with what you have available via your TV deal (if you have one). There’s sport-specific packages, such as a Football-only offer (currently £18 a month).

To get the right deal for your money, you’re going to need to take a good look around. To get everything that ESPN has to offer is around £10 a month, or you can get an annual pass for about £70. 

Once you’ve decided which package is the right one for you, you can start browsing and streaming straight away.

If you’ve got this far, hopefully you’ve been able to get an ESPN deal that works best for you – with so many different ways to watch and pay, there’s bound to be something that works for everyone. 

Make sure you keep checking back with ESPN to get the most out of your deal – not only is there a whole heap of content online and in-app, there’s also a chance you could bag yourself an upgrade or get access to something extra special.

Happy watching!
