Disney has announced the price of its upcoming streaming series, along with the price of add-ons. Disney’s streaming service, Disney+, will debut on November 12. The price of Disney+ will be $6.99 a month, as was announced earlier this year.
Along with Disney+, Hulu and ESPN will be offered as a bundle for streamers. The bundle will include Disney+; Hulu’s basic on-demand plan (not including Hulu’s live TV add-on); and the sports streaming service, called ESPN+. Disney announced this week that the price of the bundle will be $12.99 a month.
Earlier this year, Disney struck a deal to take full ownership of Hulu. Operational control of Hulu began immediately, and Disney quickly announced new content that was planned for the streaming service. One of the first announced projects for Hulu was “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.”
ESPN+ launched in spring of 2018. According to ESPN, the streaming service allows users to pause and rewind live games, plus full-game replays on demand anywhere in the US. Disney has owned assets of ESPN since 1996.
Disney CEO Bob Iger described the bundle by saying, “That $12.99 bundle offers consumers tremendous volume, tremendous quality and tremendous variety for a good price.”
While a date has not yet been confirmed, the bundle of Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ is expected to be available when Disney+ launches in November.
