Price hikes, and this time it's ESPN+

If you've used the ESPN+ service, there's a good chance you're about to pay more for it. If you have it as part of the Disney Bundle -- Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+ -- then nothing is changing. But, if you subscribe to the service standalone, you're about to have to shell out an additional $3/month.

Yes, the price for ESPN+ is going up from $6.99/month to $9.99/month. And in case you haven't done the math, that's an increase of nearly 43%.

This is the third year in a row that it's gone up. The last two years, it went up $1/month. But this year, it's $3/month increase hitting subscribers.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, the annual subscription is going up as well. It was $69.99/year. That's going to $99.99/year.

Will I keep my subscription? That's easy. I don't have a subscription, so no. But, I may subscribe later in the year, during college football season. Three subscriptions ought to get me through the season. I can live with that.

I do hate that more and more prices are going up. This won't hit me hard, since, as I said before, I do not subscribe year-rout. But, it will has a slight impact on my Streaming Life, as well as for others.
