There was a time where you needed both a cable subscription and a premium subscription to watch most live sports broadcasts. Boxing and UFC matches, for example, required purchasing an extra PPV or pay-per-view package. While many are still classified as PPV these days, the process for purchasing and watching them is much, much simpler. If you just want to watch your average sports broadcasts, such as a football, baseball, or even basketball game, it's also so much easier. Streaming, especially live broadcasts, has completely changed the game, and for many, it's such a welcome evolution. ESPN+ takes that a step further by offering an all-encompassing package for the modern, digital-savvy sports fan and enthusiast.

As if live broadcasts weren't enough -- and for some, they're not -- an active subscription comes with so much more, from premium articles and daily studio shows to documentaries and post-game breakdowns. You can always check out what an ESPN+ subscription gets you by visiting their site below, but you can also keep reading to learn why the sports-friendly service has completely revolutionized the way that we watch live sports.
