Price Changes Coming to Disney+, ESPN+, Hulu, & Hulu + Live TV – How Much is Each Service Increasing?
The Disney Bundle is about to cost a bundle of cash. Today, the streaming giant announced sweeping price hikes for each of its services. We’ll break down the changes and how subscribers will be affected.
There will be three different dates important to subscribers:
- August 23, 2022 - ESPN+ price hikes
- October 10, 2022 - Hulu price hikes
- December 8, 2022 - Disney+ & Hulu + Live TV price hikes
If you subscribe to Disney+, things will change for you on December 8, 2022. That’s the day an ad-supported version of Disney+ becomes available.
|Service||Current Price||December 8 Price|
|Disney+ Premium (No ads)||$7.99/month||$10.99/month|
|Disney+ Basic (With ads)||N/A||$7.99/month|
If you’re sure you want Disney+ for a full year, you can save nearly $22 by getting an annual plan ($109.99/year).
Hulu (On Demand, Standalone)
If you only subscribe to Hulu on demand, your prices are going up October 10, 2022.
|Service||Current Price||October 10 Price|
|Hulu Premium (No ads)||$12.99/month||$14.99/month|
|Hulu Basic (With ads)||$6.99/month||$7.99/month|
Strangely, you cannot subscribe to a full year of Hulu without ads, but if you want a full year of the ad-supported service, you will save about $16 with the annual plan ($79.99/year).
Disney previously announced the upcoming ESPN+ price hike, set for August 23, 2022.
|Service||Current Price||August 23 Price|
|ESPN+ with ads||$6.99/month||$9.99/month|
|UFC PPV + Annual||$124.98|
If you want to keep your damage to a minimum, there is a benefit to subscribing to the Disney Bundle before December 8. If you do that, you will get a “legacy” rate as long as you don’t unsubscribe.
|Disney Bundle||Current Price||December 8 Price|
|Basic (With Ads): Disney+, Hulu||$2.99/month||$9.99/month|
|Basic (With Ads): Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+||N/A||$12.99/month|

Unfortunately, there is no annual plan for the Disney Bundle.

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.Inscríbete
