ESPN+ Schedule (Updated Weekly)

The Weekly ESPN+ Schedule: NHL, College football and PPL Playoffs

ESPN+ isn’t a replacement for the ESPN, ESPN2 or any other network that you watch on a cable TV or satellite TV service. You can learn how to cut the cord and get those channels elsewhere. 

That said, ESPN+ has a vast lineup of live sports, original new shows, UFC and even old favorites like “30 for 30” episodes. You can try out ESPN+ for only $4.99 per month. So it’s pretty cheap. No contracts. And it works in your ESPN app.

The live sports lineup on ESPN+ includes 14 NHL games, 32 college football games, Cricket and PPL Playoffs. And next month, you’ll see college basketball return along with a massive schedule of Big 12 games. Oh, and there’s UFC 244, too.

Let’s start with some college football…
