- The ESPN+ streaming service will present nine NFL games during the 2022 season.
- Live games include select Monday Night Football matchups, a Wild Card playoff game, and the London game.
- ESPN+ is $10/mo and can also be bundled with Disney Plus and Hulu starting at $14/mo.
ESPN+ is adding to its lineup of NFL content for the 2022 season, including multiple live games and the first ever ESPN+ exclusive matchup. ESPN+ has been absent in the past when it comes to live NFL coverage, so this year’s broadcast schedule should make the service a better value for football fans.
The majority of NFL games on ESPN+ will be Monday Night Football matchups, which will also air on cable channel ESPN and ABC. ESPN+ will also air Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli, also known to fans as Manningcast, for three weeks of the season.
ESPN+ costs $10 per month and can also be bundled with Disney Plus and Hulu for a current starting price of $14 per month. The price of the standard package will increase to $15 per month starting December 8.
Does ESPN+ stream NFL games?
A total of nine NFL games are scheduled to air on ESPN+ during the 2022 season, including five Monday night matchups, a wild card playoff game, two Saturday games and the annual NFL game in London.
The London game on October 30 will be exclusive to ESPN+. All other NFL games on ESPN+ will be simulcast on ESPN and/or ABC.
Although cable network ESPN will air additional NFL games throughout the season, not all of these matchups will air on ESPN+. Unfortunately, that means there won’t be any NFL games on ESPN+ for every week of the season.
