Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+ Bundle Subscription Package Announced
The announcement came during an investors’ call, when Disney CEO Bob Iger went into some detail about the offering.
For $12.99 per month, the three services are priced at par or cheaper than its rivals. For instance, Hulu itself costs $5,99 per month — with ads — and about $12 per month for its ad-free experience. Netflix is about the same, being $12.99 per month for two screens in HD.
By comparison, ESPN+ also costs $4.99 per month. Together, the bundle comes with substantial savings. Iger says of the bundle:
“That $12.99 bundle offers consumers tremendous volume, trememdous quality, and tremendous variety for a good price.”
However, there are a few drawbacks. For instance, Hulu isn’t available in Canada. And, there are regional licensing issues for ESPN+, something which wasn’t directly addressed.
