STAMFORD, Conn. and BURBANK, Calif. – Charter Communications, Inc. and The Walt Disney Company today announced ESPN+ is now available to Spectrum TV Select Plus customers at no additional cost, as the two companies’ industry-leading distribution agreement from 2023 continues to benefit consumers by making streaming apps part of linear Spectrum TV bundle packages.

Charter’s activation of the ESPN+ direct-to-consumer inclusion offer means qualified Spectrum video customers can immediately begin streaming thousands of hours of live sports and original programming through the Xumo Stream Box or any other ESPN+ supported device. The availability of ESPN+, which currently retails for $10.99 per month, comes after Charter and The Walt Disney Company in January made the Disney+ Basic streaming app available to all Spectrum TV Select customers nationwide at no extra cost.

“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.”
