Bryce Harper signing with the Philadelphia Phillies this offseason was the big fish in the free-agent pond, so you know that every baseball fan is going to be interested in seeing if the 2015 NL Most Valuable Player can live up to the high price and expectations of his contract. And, whether you’re a diehard Phillies fan who lives out of market, or just a baseball fanatic who wants to see how Harper’s debut goes down, ESPN+ is the place to watch it all unfold.


Here’s the thing, though, ESPN+ isn’t just going to stop there, because the streaming service knows that MLB fans need as much baseball as possible. That’s why ESPN+ is broadcasting more than 180 games over the course of the entire MLB season when you have a subscription, meaning that, for just $4.99/month, you have access to the best games going on that night. Oh, and here’s a friendly reminder that ESPN+ offers a FREE 7-day trial, meaning you can get all that content without committing too much.

Repeat: ESPN+ offers a FREE 7-day trial!

We’ve got a feeling you’ll want to stick around with the streaming service for just $4.99/month, though, because ESPN+ has loads of other exclusive content that you’ll want at your fingertips, too, like UFC, ESPN Originals and other live sporting events.


In addition to the 180 live MLB games that ESPN+ will be broadcasting, for those seriously obsessed baseball fans, as part of an ESPN+ subscription, fans also have the option to purchase and watch MLB.TV from ESPN+, which offers hundreds of out-of-market MLB games the entire season. While that service is sold separately, it does come with options, with fans choosing between a full season ($118.99) or going the monthly route ($24.99).

From Bryce Harper entering his next chapter in baseball to tight divisional matchups and rivalries all season long, ESPN+ is the place to watch it all — and with that free 7-day trial, any sports fan would be crazy not to take advantage of the opportunity.
