Verizon To No Longer Offer Disney+ For Free In New Plans
One of the many benefits of having a Verizon mobile phone plan is getting access to either Disney+ or the Disney Streaming Bundle, which includes Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu, as a bonus.
However, unfortunately, as the streaming services and mobile phone providers look to increase profits, according to a report from The Mobile Report, from the 18th May 2023, Verizon will stop offering Disney+ with its 5G plans. However, it will continue to allow subscribers to get a discounted Disney Streaming Bundle add-on.
This new add-on will be called “MyPlan” and will allow Verizon customers to add the Disney Streaming Bundle or other offerings such as Apple One or Walmart+ for $10 a month. The bundle add-on price is still lower than the normal price of $12.99, but obviously, this new deal isn’t as good as getting it for free.
If you already have a Verizon 5G plan with Disney+ or the Disney Bundle, you can keep the previous benefits until they move to a new contract.
Disney has partnered with Verizon since Disney+ first launched in 20219, and it has helped the streaming service grow with additional subscribers. However, mobile phone providers are also looking to offer cheaper bundles to attract both new and existing subscribers, especially with the cost of living crisis. Including extra add-ons is a nice perk, but ultimately the customer is still paying for these.
