Report: Disney+ to Offer In-App Shopping
Not only is your Disney+ subscription about to cost more, you’re also going to get bombarded with offers to buy Disney-themed merchandise. According to the Wall Street Journal, Disney+ will soon offer T-shirts, themed accessories, and children’s costumes associated with some of its shows. Users would scan a QR code on the screen that links to the Shop Disney website.
The report says some merchandise may be exclusive to Disney+ subscribers.
This is all part of CEO Bob Chapek’s plan to squeeze as much money as possible from Disney’s loyal fans. The company is said to be working up a membership program like Amazon Prime to offer discounts to members.
While some viewers may enjoy the opportunity to snag some additional Disney merchandise or pay for the privilege of a discount, others may cringe at the encroachment of more commerce from an already expensive ecosystem.
The company’s Q3 earnings call offered bombshell after bombshell. While combined subscribers of Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ topped Netflix for the first time, subscribers to all three services are facing price hikes.
Just a few days ago, ESPN+ increased its prices by 43%. Prices for the other parts of the Disney Bundle are going up as well. Hulu’s price hike arrives October 10, with increases for Disney+, the Disney Bundle, and Hulu Live TV arriving December 8.
Additional surprises may be announced on Disney+ Day: September 8. Be sure to bookmark The Streamable for full coverage of the day’s events.

And speaking of content, while Disney controls both Hulu and ABC, local Sinclair affiliates who broadcast ABC were dropped from Hulu on March 8, 2023 due to a carriage dispute. This means that in 28 markets (such as Portland, Seattle, San Antonio, Rochester, and others) subscribers will no longer see primetime ABC airings or local ABC news on Hulu Live TV until the dispute is resolved. Check here for a full list of affected ABC markets.
That being said, for the content that Hulu Live TV has (which is plenty), the service provides an unlimited DVR with the ability to skip through commercials. You also have the option to upgrade for premium channels, unlimited screens, and commercial-free access to Hulu’s on-demand library.Registrering
