Disney will offer a bundle package of its three streaming services Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ for only $12.99 a month starting November 12th, the company announced during the its annual investors call today.
At $12.99 the bundle of three is the same cost as Netflix, which is currently in the process of losing their Star Wars, Marvel, and Disney content as we speak so it can be on Disney+ when it launches. Hulu is currently available for $5.99 a month with ads while ESPN+ is $4.99 monthly.
Hulu is not available in Canada, but Disney is interested in bringing it to an international market. “[Disney] doesn’t have anything to announce right now in terms of markets,” Bob Iger said in a press release.
Also Bob Iger:
“The positive response to our direct-to-consumer strategy has been gratifying, and the integration of the businesses we acquired from 21st Century Fox only increases our confidence in our ability to leverage decades of iconic storytelling and the powerful creative engines across the entire company to deliver an extraordinary value proposition to consumers.”
Disney will be rolling out several new series from Marvel like Loki, and Wandavision, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and What If while Lucasfilm has the upcoming and untitled Cassian Andor series and, of course, The Mandalorian which will premiere the same day Disney+ launches on November 12th.
