Arrow Disney+/Hulu/ESPN+ Bundle to Cost $12.99/Month — But There's a Catch

Disney+/Hulu/ESPN+ Bundle to Cost $12.99/Month — But There's a Catch

The upcoming launch of the Disney+ streaming service just got a bit sweeter sounding, with the disclosure of a price point for a package that adds in Hulu as well as ESPN+.

When Disney+ launches on Tuesday, Nov. 12 (for U.S. subscribers; and then rolled out to the rest of the world over two years), the new service’s ad-free content will cost $6.99/month (or $69.99/year).

But Disney CEO Bob Iger announced during a Tuesday earnings call that a bundle that combines the well-stocked Disney+ with Hulu’s ad-supported basic service ($5.99/month) as well as ESPN+ ($4.99/month) will total just $12.99/month.

The “catch” is that, as noted above, you get “Hulu with ads,” and there are no plans to offer a bundle with the ad-free version of Hulu

I don't see the problem. I didn't even know there was an ad free version of Hulu.

Disney is using its D23 fan expo to announce lots of details about its upcoming Disney+ streaming video service, which will throw in 4K content and up to 4 simultaneous streams at no extra cost.

The company said that the service will offer 4K Ultra HD video playback with support for Dolby Vision, HDR10 and Dolby Atmos audio on supported devices for available programming. Disney+ will also allow subscribers to concurrently stream video content on up to four registered devices.

These features are all included at the $6.99-per-month price that Disney+ will carry when it launches on Nov. 12. In contrast, Netflix only offers HD content and up to two simultaneous streams with its most popular plan, the Standard tier that charges $12.99 per month. Subscribers have to upgrade to the $15.99-per-month Premium plan to get 4K and up to four simultaneous streams.

It's going to be hard enough to get people to sign up for new services on top of what they already have, but unless there is a decent way of watching them, it will be impossible. There won't be many more streaming services coming on. It's soon going to get to the point of consolidation.

I signed up for a free week, but there really isn't much on there that I'm interested in, and since my computer is the only way to watch for me to watch there won't be any reason for me to continue. I am enjoying re-watching the Little Mermaid for the first time since it was re-released in theaters back in the 90s, but it's astonishing how much better animation is now than it was in 1989. It looks like it could have been done 30 or 40 years before that.
