3 Options for Watching UFC Fight Night 184
You need to have an ESPN+ subscription even if you want to watch UFC Fight Night.
An ESPN+ subscription costs $5.99 per month. It costs as much as a movie rental.
If you don’t have an ESPN+ subscription yet, there are a few different options to consider, especially if you want to save a few bucks.
Option 1: Get just ESPN+ and you’ll automatically be signed up for a month-to-month ESPN+ subscription. It costs $5.99 per month, and you can cancel whenever you want.
Option 2: You can save 15 percent on your subscription if you get an annual ESPN+ subscription for $59.99. Paying month to month costs $71.88 per year.
Option 3: If you already subscribe monthly to Hulu and/or Disney+, you might want to consider getting ESPN+ through the Disney+ bundle. The Disney+ bundle includes Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+ for $12.99 per month. That saves you about 25 percent on all your household streaming compared to paying for them separately. You can easily consolidate your subscriptions and save about $6 per month.

Is ESPN+ on Comcast or Verizon Fios?
You won’t find ESPN+ in your channel lineup with DIRECTV or a cable TV service such as Comcast, Spectrum or Verizon Fios.
ESPN+ is a standalone streaming service. Other live sports include college basketball, MLB, NHL, top rank boxing, tennis and FA Cup.
A subscription to ESPN+ costs only $5.99 per month, and it basically gives your ESPN app a dramatic upgrade.
