Disney has also announced that Disney+ will get a price bump with major discounts for getting the Disney+/Hulu combo. From October 12th 2023, Disney+ Premium (with no ads) will be going up 27%, rising from $10.99 to $13.99/month for U.S. customers. Hulu without ads will be going up 20%, from $14.99 to $17.99/month. However, the price for Disney+ and Hulu standalone ad-supported tiers will remain at $7.99/month each, and with the bundle still $9.99/month. To really encourage people to stay or move to the ad-supported tier.
Disney is also going to be launching a new ad-free bundled subscription plan with Disney+ and Hulu for $19.99/month, a 37% discount from the standalone plans on September 6th 2023.
The Hulu + Live TV bundle will also be going up $7 dollars and ESPN+ will also increase by one dollar, from $9.99 to $10.99/month.
Internationally, Disney+ is also going to be launching ad-supported plans to Canada, the U.K. and eight other European countries beginning Nov. 1. The monthly pricing will be $7.99 in Canada, £4.99 in the U.K. and €5.99 in the European markets (France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Norway, Sweden and Denmark). And in December 2023, it will increase subscription prices of Disney+ without ads in those markets.
Joe Earley, president of direct-to-consumer for Disney Entertainment, said in a statement.
“The strong momentum of our ad-supported plans in the U.S. demonstrates the importance of providing consumers with choice, flexibility and value. We are excited to expand that offering in more markets across the globe, including in Europe and Canada, and to launch a new premium duo bundle of ad-free Disney+ and Hulu this fall, as we take steps toward making extensive Hulu content available via Disney+ later this year for bundle subscribers.”
