Disney raises price of Disney+, Hulu; adds ad-supported tier


Disney will raise the price of ad-free tiers on Disney+ and Hulu later this year in the USA, the company has today announced.

First, Disney+ will be bumped from $8 USD to 11 USD per month from 8 December. While the $11 USD tier will be ad-free, a new ad-supported $8 USD tier will also be offered up; simply put, you can keep at your current charge but watch ads if you don’t want to pay an additional fee.

Sister streaming site Hulu will also bump up its ad-free package from $13 USD to $15 USD from 10 October. An ad-supported tier is already available, but will be raised from $7 USD to $8 USD at that same time.

There are other bundles available, and they’re being hiked up too: access to Disney+ and Hulu (with ads) will be set at $10 USD, while a package with ad-free Disney+ and ad-supported Hulu and ESPN+ will climb to $15 USD (or $20 USD without ads across the board).

Get all that? It almost makes you yearn for the days of cable packaging, eh?
