New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on March 10, 2022) follows:

ESPN, the successful television network focused on sports, is one of the most recognized worldwide. The company has also adapted well to modern times where streaming services are key.

Through the ESPN Plus app, users can enjoy live streaming of matches, replays, news, stats and more. Unfortunately, it looks like the service is in the middle of an outage.


According to reports, multiple ESPN Plus users are currently unable to login to their accounts, or are receiving a message saying that their accounts have been deactivated.

ESPN Plus users unable to login or account deactivated

Recent reports indicate that many ESPN Plus users cannot access their accounts. There are also cases where their personal profiles are shown as ‘deactivated’.


@ESPNPlusHelp @espnplus Why is my account deactivated? Rumor is this is a systemwide issue??

When users try to log in, the service gets stuck on a loading screen with spining infinite circles.

@DisneyPlus @ESPNPlusHelp Holy moses its impossible to sign up to get your bundle. I get sent around and around in circles. my account is “managed by a 3rd party”. What a horrible experience, all so I can watch 1 hockey game.

The ESPN Plus team is already aware of the issue and working to resolve it. However, there is still no ETA for everything to work normally again.

We apologize for the inconvenience. We are aware of this situation and have escalated it to the appropriate department.

The origin of the problem seems to be a general outage on the entire Disney streaming platform. This means that, in addition to ESPN Plus, services like Disney Plus and Hulu are also down at the time of writing this story.

We will be monitoring the situation to update this story as events unfold.
