Apple TV+ and Netflix are about to get some serious competition from Disney’s upcoming streaming bundle that will combine three services into one.
Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed to investors during the company’s third-quarter earnings call today that customers will be able to get Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ for $12.99, the same price as Netflix.
Iger announced that Disney+ will launch on November 12 for $6.99 per month. ESPN+ currently costs $4.99 while Hulu’s ad-supported plan costs $5.99. Getting all three package on the $12.99 bundle costs $5 less than if you subscribed to them separately.
The Disney bundle is significantly cheaper than the HBO Max service that Time Warner plans to launch later this year for $16 – $17 per month. Apple TV+ is also set to launch later this year. Pricing details and a launch date haven’t been revealed. The service will be home to the growing catalog of original TV shows Apple has been working on for nearly two years now.
Disney+ will be the only place to stream all of the new Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars films. The company is working on a number of original TV shows like The Mandolorian that will be exclusive to Disney+. Considering Disney is the only company that has released 15 movies in the last 5 years that made $1 billion or more each at the box office, Disney+ might have the most impressive vault of content among all streaming services.
