Disney Plus, Hulu and ESPN Plus discounted bundle announced

Disney Plus, Hulu and ESPN Plus discounted bundle announced
Disney revealed plans to offer customers a better deal to those who feel that the basic streaming service, Disney Plus is not enough to quench their thirst for entertainment. The plan involves adding two more streaming services – the ad-supported version of Hulu and ESPN Plus.

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. The bundle will be available in the United States on November 12, when Disney Plus will be officially launched.

Those who would rather have Disney Plus and don't care about the bundle will only have to pay $7 per month for the basic service, which is half the cost of HBO Now and much less than Netflix's $12/month plan.

As far as international availability goes, Disney has yet to confirm whether or not the bundle will be available outside the US. Although the company confirmed plans to bring Hulu to international markets, the timing is unclear because of regional licensing issue. The same goes for ESPN+, so there might not be a bundle such as this available outside the US after all.

Little value for Canada currently. For myself, I will bounce into Disney+ occasionally, maybe a couple months of the year but so far the content planned is very limited for new offerings and certainly nothing appealing for me. Could care less about ESPN and Hulu isn't in Canada and certainly don't want an ad supported service.

It's crazy how much money you will need to pay just to watch all the shows you like from Amazon, Netflix, HBO, Disney+

Not sure what you mean by crazy. It would be $45/month in the States. For the amount of content you would get between those 4 services, I think that's extremely reasonable. Way less than you would pay for a decent cable package.

That's great value if your into Disney IP and sports I don't see how Netflix or especially Apple can compete with that

Yup, get ready for Disney to run everything on your television.... A slight exaggeration, but I wasn't happy when Disney got FX and the rest of the TV channels. Disney has been ruining a lot lately... ie Star Wars, Aladdin, Lion King.

Willing to pay if they bring all of the old original Disney (Chip n Dale, Pluto, Donald Duck, nephews, Goofy, holiday specials *Halloween, Christmas*, etc) cartoons and movies. Not those junks today.
