Disney Plus-Hulu-ESPN Plus bundle: Price
Disney has confirmed that the price for signing up for the bundle is $13.99 a month. Hulu is currently $5.99 a month (with ads), ESPN Plus costs $6.99 a month, and Disney is $7.99 — so you’re getting a total savings of $5. The bundle also is currently at the same price as Netflix’s most popular Standard monthly subscription price. It’s also $1 less than the standard HBO Max subscription.
Disney is now also offering a version of the bundle with the Hulu No Ads subscription tier. That bundle costs $19.99 a month.
Disney has not yet announced if it will offer a yearly price for the Disney Plus-Hulu-ESPN Plus bundle. There’s no such plan for Hulu at the moment, but ESPN Plus is available for an annual fee of $69.99, and Disney Plus has a $79.99 yearly subscription option. Also, this bundle is currently only available for US residents.
Can I add the Hulu + Live TV version to the Disney Plus-Hulu-ESPN Plus bundle?
Yes, you can. Hulu + Live TV will give you access to over 60 live TV channels, plus cloud DVR features and streaming from an unlimited number of devices at home. Here’s how to add Hulu + Live TV to the Disney Plus and ESPN Plus bundle.
- First, go to the Hulu.com website and click on the “Star the free trial” button.
- Select the “Hulu + Live TV” option, which normally costs $64.99 a month.
- You should see a new option pop up asking if you want to get Hulu + Live TV, along with Disney Plus and ESPN Plus, for $7 more. Click or tap on the “Let’s Bundle” option.
- Complete your account information as normal, and you should be all set to get all three services for $72.99 a month.
Keep in mind that this bundle price supports the Hulu service with ads. You can add the “no ads” option as an add-on to the bundle; it will then cost $78.99 a month. Again, there’s no free trial with this bundle. If you already have the bundle, you will have to cancel it and wait until your current paid billing cycle ends. Then you can sign up again with the Hulu + Live TV version with the above method.
What can you watch?
The bundle offers a ton of content for not a lot of money. Disney Plus is the company’s family-based service, with access to tons of classic and more recent animated movies and TV shows. Disney Plus also has movies and shows from its Marvel Studios and Star Wars divisions. It also has a selection of library content from National Geographic and its recently acquired 20th Century Fox movies and shows. In addition, Disney Plus will be the home to many original and exclusive movies and shows on its own. It’s starting with theatrical releases like Soul and Hamilton, along with shows like The Mandalorian and WandaVision.
