Disney+/Hulu/ESPN+ Bundle to Cost $12.99/Month

Disney+/Hulu/ESPN+ Bundle to Cost $12.99/Month

In addition to Disney, WarnerMedia is planning to launch its own streaming service that is expected to launch next year.

According to Paolo Pescatore, TMT analyst at PP Foresight, the move throws down the gauntlet to Netflix and other rival services, suggesting the package is competitively priced and seeks to reduce fragmentation. The bundle that includes Disney Plus, Hulu and ESPN Plus will be available for a discounted price of $13 per month, $5 less than you would normally pay for the three services separately, The Verge reports.

In April, Disney announced it would offer all its subscription services - including Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu - as part of a bundle package from 12 November 2019. The latter is especially baffling, considering that the 2003 movie, starring Steve Martin and Hilary Duff, is itself a remake of the 1950 original.

On the movie front, Disney+ will launch with more than 300 titles, including eight Star Wars pics, four from Marvel, almost 20 Pixar-produced features/shorts, 100 Disney Channel Original Movies, and 70 films from the Disney "vault".

Disney shares tumbled 5% in after-market trading Tuesday as the Mouse House missed Wall Street's third-quarter profit and revenue expectations.

This will set the stage for continuing chances for scattered showers and storms heading into the weekend as well. By Friday , an upper level ridge is expected to nudge eastward which will stabilize and dry out the atmosphere.

Disney, which is also studying opportunities to expand the Hulu business in global markets, will coincide with the launch of Disney+ platform with its bundled package roll-out of its on 12th November.

Disney+ is expected to launch on November 12, 2019 in the USA, with a global rollout expected in early 2020.

Iger made clear that this will not be happening on his watch, which in theory is good news for investors but bad news for people who want to be surprised at the movies.

Nope, they'll all be rebooted for Disney+, the upcoming streaming service. But, that said, now that Disney has shown its hand, Apple could announce a lower, more compelling price point or choose to bundle Apple TV+ with Apple Music for the same price as Hulu/Disney+/ESPN+.
