During Disney’s Investor Day event in December, it was announced that Disney+ would be getting a price rise in the United States in the Spring.
Subscribers have been getting emails today from Disney confirming that Disney+ will be going up on March 26th 2021.
The price will be rising from $6.99 to $7.99 a month.
The Disney Streaming Bundle, which includes Hulu with Ads, ESPN+ and Disney+, will also be going up in price a dollar, from $12.99 to $13.99.
At the Investor Day event, Disney said that the price rise would be coming because they are heavily investing in many new movies and series for Disney+ including multiple Marvel, Star Wars and Disney projects.
Last month, Disney increased the price of Disney+ in many countries, including the UK, Canada and Australia, by around $2 due to the addition of the new general entertainment brand “Star” and to cover the costs of all the new Original programming.
What do you think of this price rise?
