ESPN+ is ESPN’s top-tier subscription offering, a standalone service offering live and replayed coverage of sports, original shows, and specials, unique to the service. But it costs money. Knowing how to cancel ESPN Plus is useful in these times if you’re finding it just a bit too expensive in your current situation.

By itself, ESPN+ runs you about $5.99 per month or $59.99 annually. There are also better Disney-based bundles that including ESPN+ and Hulu all in one for $13.99. You can sign up for the bundle at the link below. You can also purchase a digital gift card for the service.
ESPN+ still has its advantages during the sporting seasons and has some wonderful extras as well. You might’ve got ESPN+ to dive into extra content, written articles, or you wanted to watch Michael Jordan play — there are 15 of his best games only on ESPN+. But hey, not every relationship lasts forever.
So, we’ve stepped through canceling the ESPN+ service in a few different ways, as it’s a little complicated depending on how you subscribed. ESPN makes it easy to get ESPN+, of course, but removing it isn’t hard, it just takes a few steps.
How to cancel ESPN+ on web:
Open your ESPN+ subscription account by following this link to the accounts page on plus.espn.com (note, this only works if you signed up on the web.)
- Hit Log In, and put in your ESPN account details.
- Then hit Manage.
- Hit Cancel Subscription.
- Confirm your cancellation: if you still want to go through with the cancellation, hit confirm.
Pick up the phone:
You can also cancel your subscription the old fashioned way by calling ESPN Customer Support at 1(800) 727-1800. This isn’t a secret tip, ESPN mentions this in its ESPN+ Subscriber Agreement. (Note that ESPN+ says it won’t do refunds, full, partial, or otherwise, so keep that in mind.)
Cancel ESPN+ in-app purchase through the Play Store or App Store:
If you’ve signed up for ESPN+ via your mobile device, you’ll need to know how to cancel a Google Play store subscription, which is described at the link in full.
For an Apple App Store subscription, Apple has a guide for iPhone that we have reproduced for you below:
- Open the Settings app.
- Tap your name.
- Tap Subscriptions. (If you don’t see “Subscriptions,” tap “iTunes & App Store” instead. Then tap your Apple ID, tap View Apple ID, sign in, scroll down to Subscriptions, and tap Subscriptions.)
- Tap the subscription that you want to manage.
- Tap Cancel Subscription. If you don’t see Cancel Subscription, the subscription is already canceled and won’t renew.
Canceling ESPN+ from other providers: Roku, Amazon, and more
It may be you’ve been signed up to ESPN+ from another provider, like Roku or Amazon or iTunes, and so on.
You might be ready to leave and cancel your ESPN+ subscription, but getting it done will require a few steps. ESPN+ thankfully has published a guide for canceling with Roku, a guide for canceling with Amazon, along with a guide for iTunes. Specific instructions are available for each provider.
That’s it, your ESPN+ subscription is canceled! Of course, you can continue using it through your existing billing cycle. It’s pretty easy to re-sign up if you decide you want to check what’s cooking. The Disney Plus/Hulu/ESPN+ bundle is our main recommendation there for $12.99.
