During Disney's earnings call this afternoon, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that an upcoming streaming bundle that includes access to Disney+, ESPN+, and ad-supported Hulu will be priced at $12.99 per month.

The upcoming bundle will be available in the United States starting on November 12, which is the same date that the Disney+ streaming service is set to launch.

Disney earlier this year announced pricing for the Disney+ service, which is set to cost $6.99 per month, making it more affordable than many streaming services on the market. Hulu is priced at $5.99 per month with ads and ESPN+ costs $4.99, so the bundle saves customers close to $5 compared to purchasing all three services individually.

Disney is planning to make Disney+ available through the Disney+ app, which looks similar in design to Netflix and other streaming services based on a preview shown off in April. Disney+ and ESPN+ content will be available on web browsers, smartphones, smart TVs, tablets, and game consoles, which is essentially everywhere that you can watch most streaming services.

The Disney+ service and the newly announced bundle will compete with Apple TV+, Apple's upcoming streaming service that is also set to launch this fall. Apple has not yet announced pricing for ‌Apple TV+‌.

It’s only a deal if you actually want ESPN. Is there a discounted bundle with just Disney+ and Hulu? I have no interest is sports.

Can they knock the price down another buck fifty and keep ESPN+ out of it?

Ad free or nothing! I tried Hulu with ads for the first month. It was worse than watching cable TV. So I switched to the ad free version. However, it's truly not ad free although it's light years better than ad supported. If Disney tries to shove it's content down my throat with ads, I'll definitely take a hard pass on it.
