MMA fans are getting treated to a big UFC event tomorrow: UFC 297. And since it’s a pay-per-view, you’ll need to hand over some cash to tune in. ESPN+ is the only outlet for streaming live UFC pay-per-view events like these in the United States, so if you’re looking for a way to enjoy all the action online, read on. We’ve got everything you need to know about UFC pay-per-views on ESPN+, including how to sign up, how much it costs, and how you can save.

ESPN+ is a premium streaming service for all things sports, from MMA and boxing to soccer and much, much more. Since launching its streaming platform in 2018, ESPN has continued to develop a very close relationship with the Ultimate Fighting Championship, and in 2023, ESPN+ is the go-to app for streaming UFC content. It’s also the only outlet where you can watch UFC pay-per-view events online. ESPN+ is compatible with virtually all modern PC web browsers and streaming-capable devices, which includes smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, and Xbox and PlayStation gaming consoles.

Subscribing to ESPN+ now costs $10 per month or an even cheaper $100 for the first year following a recent price increase. If you’re after a bigger streaming package — perhaps you’re new to the whole streaming thing — then the best value by far is the Disney Bundle . This rings in at $13 per month and gets you ESPN+, Disney+, and ad-supported Hulu. If you’re cutting the cord and ditching cable TV altogether and you want ESPN+, a great all-in-one streaming bundle is Hulu with Live TV. For $70 per month, this live TV streaming package offers more than 85 live TV channels along with Hulu, Disney+, and ESPN+, so you can watch UFC fights online and pay-per-views including the UFC 297 live stream.

ESPN also offers bundle deals ahead of every UFC PPV event, which is another great way to save on both ESPN+ as well as UFC pay-per-views. Normally, a year’s subscription to ESPN+ would cost you $100, while the price of a UFC PPV ticket is currently $80 after yet another $5 increase — a combined total of $180. If you’re new to ESPN+ or a monthly subscriber, though, then you can grab the pay-per-view bundle, which includes a year’s worth of ESPN+ along with the UFC PPV package for just $125, saving you a cool $55.

Despite how many streaming platforms there are, cable TV still exists, and, in fact, many new TVs still come with a coaxial input to support the traditional cable connection. But most services don't offer access to live TV channels -- for that, you need one of the best TV streaming services. Fubo is one of them, especially if you like sports, but it's also one of the more expensive options. The good news is that most of these streaming platforms offer free trials and other offers for new customers looking to sign up, and Fubo is no exception. If you're looking to cut the cord and are in search of a live TV streaming package, read on. We've got everything you need to know about the Fubo free trial currently available, as well as other ways you might be able to save some cash. At the very least, you can give the service a test run before spending any money.
Is there a Fubo free trial?

New subscribers can currently enjoy a seven-day Fubo free trial upon signing up. You do, however, need to enter your credit card information when you create your account. That means if you don't want to get charged, you'll need to cancel your subscription before the seven-day trial period is over.
