NEW YORK: Walt Disney will raise its monthly and annual subscription fees for sports streaming platform ESPN+ in the United States, the company said on Monday (Jul 12).

The monthly price will be increased by US$1 to US$6.99, while the annual plan will cost US$10 more at US$69.99, Disney said.

ESPN+ has about 14 million subscribers.

The fees for those getting a bundle of all of Disney's streaming services, including Hulu and Disney+, will remain unchanged and there will be no changes to its UFC pay-per-view prices.

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 live-sports making a strong comeback from a pandemic-led lull.

Disney and Marvel's Scarlett Johansson-starring Black Widow, which opened simultaneously in theatres and on streaming service Disney+ this month, made a massive US$80 million in its first weekend and US$60 million on Disney+.
