How to cancel your ESPN+ subscription

Disney has recently confirmed a price increase for ESPN+ by a dollar a month beginning in August, bringing it up to $6.99 (and from $59.99 to $69.99 for the yearly subscription). If you were already hesitant about paying for ESPN+ (especially in off seasons) or you’d like to try a different sports app, you may be wondering how to cancel the service. Here’s how to get it done fast, with tips on canceling through Google Play, Apple, or Roku as needed.

Note: ESPN+ does not offer refunds or credits for partially used billing periods. Your current month’s fees are already gone for good — but if you want to save money next month, it’s important to act now.

Cancel on your web browser

This method is designed for those who signed up directly on the ESPN+ website or otherwise have an ESPN+ login that you can use. It’s simple and direct!

Step 1: Head to your login page and log in with your ESPN+ information.

Step 2: Select your Profile icon in the upper-right corner of the ESPN+ screen.

Step 3: Select your ESPN+ Subscription from the left-side menu, and confirm that you want to Manage it.

Step 4: You’ll now see your subscription details. On this menu, choose Cancel Subscription.

Step 5: Select Finish and ESPN+ will be canceled. You will receive an email confirming that the cancellation worked.

Note that ESPN+ will generally remember your login information even after your cancellation. This will allow you to reactivate an ESPN+ subscription in the future. That may be an attractive option if you are only interested in signing up for a specific season, so keep your login information around for next time.

Disney is also encouraging bundling multiple streaming services by keeping its ESPN+ bundle price the same if you also package in Hulu and Disney+. That’s a viable option if you want to combine services or are interested in adding a new service while keeping your old ESPN pricing. We have a guide on what you should know about this particular bundle before you buy.

If you already have ESPN+ via the bundle and want to opt-out even though the price is the same, you will have to log into Disney+ and unsubscribe from your bundle entirely, wait until the latest period ends, and subscribe to services individually.

Marshall updates its noise-canceling earbuds with better battery life
Marshall Motif II ANC in charging case.

Marshall's second-gen Motif ANC wireless earbuds -- appropriately called the Marshall Motif II ANC -- look exactly like the first-gen Motif, but under the hood are some welcome enhancements like better battery life, better active noise cancellation (ANC) performance, and support for Bluetooth LE Audio. The price, on the other hand, remains the same: you can buy them staring August 29 for $199 on Marshall's website. The company expects them to ship on September 12.

Marshall has a talent for understatement. Its press release for the Marshall Motif II ANC talks about the improved battery life twice -- the new earbuds now get six hours of ANC playtime on a charge and a total of 30 hours with the case (versus 4.5 and 20 on the first-gen) -- but never mentions that the new Motif now have Bluetooth Multipoint for connecting two devices simultaneously.

Disney already knows if you’re sharing your streaming account
The Disney World castle as seen in the Disney+ streaming app.

Along with a number of price increases, the other big news to come out of Disney's (fiscal) third-quarter earnings report was that the company is taking a serious look at account sharing — password sharing, if you will — and will begin to crack down on it in 2024.

In other words, it's going to do what Netflix has done, and it's time to pay up. But we don't yet know exactly what that will look like.

Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+ get new pricing schemes this fall
Disney Plus on Roku.

Disney+ — and along with it, fellow Disney-owned streaming services Hulu and ESPN+ — have never had the simplest of pricing schemes. And this fall they're going to get a little more complex -- and more expensive. And more countries are getting more options.

First up: Canada and some European nations will get the ad-supported option for Disney+ starting November 1, 2023. It'll run $8 in the former, and 5 pounds or 6 euros in the latter. Current subscribers will stay in the ad-free plan unless they actively decide to switch.
