Hulu on Disney+ Beta Launches for Bundle Subscribers

Disney today announced that customers who subscribe to its Hulu and Disney+ bundle can access Hulu content through a new "Hulu on Disney+" beta that aims to combine the two apps into a single app.


The beta is available to bundle subscribers as of now, with Disney planning to test the combined service before it rolls out in the spring. Bundle subscribers will see a Hulu title appear alongside Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic tiles in the Disney+ interface.

Clicking on the Hulu tile brings Bundle subscribers to the new Hulu Hub that has all of the Hulu content without the need to switch over to the Hulu app. The two-step launch process is meant to keep Hulu content separate from Disney+ content for parents who do not want the more adult content from Hulu accessible to children.

Disney said that it wants to better understand consumer needs and wants for Hulu on Disney+ before it launches in March 2024. Disney does not plan to replace either the standalone Hulu or Disney+ subscriptions, both will continue be available.

We need EU to fix the streaming crisis next.. there's too many services to track and pay for. Maybe we made a mistake by cutting the cord.
Good god no, keep the EU out of this.

This is all very basic:

10 Find a streaming service with content you want
20 Subscribe
30 Binge content
40 Unsubscribe
50 Goto 10

We keep Hulu as our fall back and rotate through Netflix, Max, etc.

The problem today is people are lazy and want to be subscribed to all of the services at once, which approaches cable package cost. If you are organized and just a little disciplined it is easy and the savings are huge.

I'm surprised an easy to use aggregation service hasn't appeared because streaming is well and truly a confusing, expensive and consumer unfriendly mess.

All I want from Hulu is:

1) A way to make the channel list primary so I don't have to look at their crappy search and content recommendation pages.
2) Picture in Picture or 4 up or two up or whatever.
3) A reasonable way to go back to the previous channel I was watching.

All I really watch is sports. I don't watch tv shows, or movies to any great degree. I had all of the above features on cable and I miss them. Especially during college football season and March Madness.

They were supposed to make things better than cable. They have not.

Unfortunately per a conversation with Disney support, if you have separate Disney+ and Hulu accounts, there’s currently no mechanism to merge them. You’ll have to cancel one of them, lose all your account history, and then convert the other account to the bundled subscription.
