We have known for a while now that the streaming service Disney+ is going to be available starting on November 12. On August 6, Disney CEO Bob Iger shared more news during a call to investors. We have learned that Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ will be available on November 12 as well as a bundle. The best part of all is the price. It will cost only $12.99 a month for all three services. With the amount of content that will be available, you may never need to leave your home again.
Disney+ will rely heavily on the Disney catalog, which of course dates back decades. There will also be new content, including shows based on Monsters, Inc., Star Wars, and Forky from Toy Story 4. That is just the tip of the iceberg. Hulu will continue to offer a combination of movies, TV series, and originals. Hulu with the bundle with Disney+ will continue to have commercials. On ESPN+ you will be able to watch hundreds of games, sports related films, and plenty more. Hulu currently costs $5.99 per month, ESPN+ $4.99, and Disney+ alone will be $6.99. Purchased separately, the cost would be $17.97. With the bundle it’s about the same as receiving ESPN+ for one cent a month.
More information on Disney+ is going to be released during the D23 Expo in Anaheim on August 23 through 25. I am going to be covering the bi-annual convention for Disney Dining, and I can’t wait to learn more!
