Disney announces $12.99 bundle for Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+

Julia Alexander writing for The Verge:

Disney will offer a bundle package of its three streaming services — Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ — for $12.99 a month starting on November 12th, the company announced today.

This is nuts. I’m shocked Disney would price this bundle so low. In fact, I expected Disney to do what Disney does and go with a money-grubbing price. Just the Disney+ content alone looks to be more than worth this price, but bundle in Hulu and ESPN+ and it almost feels like they’re losing money. Of course, that’s absurd and probably isn’t the case, but I’m excited to sign up for this and enjoy all the wonderful content.

@ronguest I assume they’ll raise prices slowly, bundle together stuff we don’t want, and even require annual contracts eventually. Cable returns! Just over the Internet. But I have been known to be skeptical of large corporations…. 😉 I’d love to be proven wrong.


@Cheri This is already happening with streaming services – they’re bundling more and more “fluff” and raising prices. I fear deals like Disney will fragment streaming more and we’ll end up having to subscribe to multiple stream providers to get the content we want. Yeah, I’m cynical 😉
