The Walt Disney Company announced plans to raise the standalone price of its ESPN Plus subscription streaming service by $1 a month to $6.99. 

The full-year commitment price is shooting up by $10 to $69.99. The price changes take effect in August. 

Importantly, however, the price of the service when bundled with Disney Plus and Hulu remains $13.99 a month. 

The price comes after Disney announced a flurry of new sports rights deals, including a pact with the National Hockey League to make 75 regular-season games exclusive to ESPN Plus. 

Disney also carved out an exclusive rights package with the All-England Lawn Tennis Club for Wimbledon live matches and replays, as well as LaLiga soccer and PGA golf.
