This week, we discovered the U.S. launch date and price for Disney+’s ad-supported tier, which the company indicated will be added to its service earlier this year.
The Walt Disney Company (TWDC) disclosed the facts yesterday as part of their fiscal third-quarter report.
Kareem Daniel, Chairman, Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution, made the following remarks during the announcement:
“With our new ad-supported Disney+ offering and an expanded lineup of plans across our entire streaming portfolio, we will be providing greater consumer choice at a variety of price points to cater to the diverse needs of our viewers and appeal to an even broader audience.
Together, Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ have over 100,000 movie and TV titles, TV episodes, original series, sports, and live events, making them the greatest streaming options available today in terms of value.
At debut, “no adverts in kids profiles or pre-school,” according to TWDC CEO Bob Chapek.
Unknown intentions exist for Disney+ outside of the United States. They could take this market’s experience into account before expanding.
On December 8, 2022, Disney will introduce its ad-supported subscription service to American customers.
Disney+ Basic (with advertisements) will cost $7.99 per month, with no option for an annual subscription.
The existing Disney+ Premium no-ads subscriptions, which cost $7.99 per month or $79.99 yearly, will increase to $10.99 per month or $109.99 per year.
Disney frequently combines Hulu and ESPN+ with Disney+; if you currently have one of those packages, the new pricing is as follows:
Disney Basic (with commercials) will cost $9.99 per month with Hulu and $12.99 per month with Hulu and ESPN+.
It will cost $14.99 per month for current Disney+ (ad-free), Hulu (with commercials), and ESPN+ subscribers.
Additionally, subscribers to Disney+ (ad-free), Hulu (ad-free), and ESPN+ (with advertising) will each pay $19.99 per month.
Hulu + Live TV
Here are the costs for Disney+ and ESPN+, which are now included with Hulu + Live TV:
The monthly cost of a Basic membership that includes adverts for all three services is $69.99.
Customers who now subscribe to Disney+ (ad-free), Hulu + Live (with commercials), and ESPN+ (with advertisements) will pay a monthly fee of $74.99.
Finally, a Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ membership without advertising will cost $82.99. Live TV will still have advertisements, though.
