Disney shake up the streaming service wars with this irresistible offer.
Disney CEO Bob Iger has announced a bundle offer for their new streaming service that’s too good to refuse. During a shareholders meeting, Iger announced the $12.99 bundle. The $12.99 bundle will not only include Disney +, but also Hulu and ESPN +.
The deal offered by Disney means subscribers will save $5 a month, with the standard price of Disney+ being $6.99 a month, Hulu $5.99 a month and ESPN $4.99 a month. Disney’s cheap streaming service will be sure to dent its competitors, with it being much cheaper than Netflix and Amazon Prime. Currently, Netflix’s standard subscription costs $12.99 a month as does the full Amazon Prime membership, whilst Warner Media is expected to cost $16-17 when it launches later in the year.
Disney entering the streaming service wars should have its competitors worried. Disney + will have exclusive content for their site such as five different Marvel Shows that directly tie in to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, along with the highly anticipated Star Wars show, The Mandalorian.
Disney’s recent acquisition of Fox will allow Disney to showcase films produced by 20th Century Fox. Disney’s deal with Hulu and ESPN + will give subscribers an unprecedented financial offer. Hulu shows such as The Handmaid’s Tale along with ESPN’s back catalogue of sport, including major events such as the UFC and the Super Bowl all available to stream.
This may seem like a dream come true for Australians, but this is an exclusive offer to America only, with Hulu and ESPN+ only being available in America.
Disney + will launch on November 12 in America.
