We’ll first walk you through the steps you’ll need to download the app. After that, we have a few tips to get you signed in quickly. Ready to get in the game? Let’s go.

How to get ESPN Plus on your Samsung smart TV

When you fire up your Samsung smart TV, the first thing you’ll want to do is grab your remote. Not the remote that came with your cable box, but your TV’s own remote. If it’s a newer Samsung TV, you’ll likely have a slim remote with just a few buttons. Then, follow these steps:

  1. Open your menu of apps using the home button.
  2. Navigate over to the option marked Apps and press Enter.
  3. Open the search bar and type in ESPN.
  4. Head to the ESPN icon and press Enter.

That’s all there is to it — you now have the ESPN app on your Samsung smart TV. You’ll notice that there’s no dedicated ESPN Plus app, which helps keep things easy and condensed. Now, it’s time to get logged in.

  2. Navigate down to Subscriptions.
  3. Press the Log In button.
