MLS to move its streaming service to ESPN+ this year

Major League Soccer's streaming service will become a part of ESPN+ when the new over-the-top product launches this year, the league confirmed on Tuesday.

The move will allow ESPN+ subscribers to stream out-of-market games that are not nationally televised, replacing the league's separate MLS Live service for U.S. users.

MLS Live cost $79.99 last season, while ESPN+ will be priced at $4.99 a month ($59.88 annually) and also include many other live sporting events and ESPN content.

Until ESPN+ launches, the league will make MLS Live games available for free on its website and streaming apps.
