How to upgrade Disney Plus to the bundle
Even with the Disney Plus price erring on the more affordable side where streaming services are concerned, it likely won’t suit those not falling into the younger demographic. That’s why the Disney Plus bundle is a great upgrade from just the bog-standard Disney Plus.
Come December 8 this will increase by just $1, to $14.99 a month.
Broken down, individually they cost:
- Disney Plus: $7.99 a month
- ESPN Plus: $9.99 a month
- Hulu (with ads): $6.99 a month
Subscribed to separately, then, you’d be looking at a cost of $24.97 a month, or $30.97 if you opted for Hulu without ads. With the bundle, you’re paying just $13.99 a month – that’s an almost $11 saving.
Opt for Hulu without ads as a part of your bundle bundle and it’ll cost $19.99 a month.
For those who want Hulu with Live TV, you can get Disney Plus essentially free in its $69.99 a month plan (opens in new tab). Want to forego ads on Hulu? Pay just $5 more to throw in ESPN Plus and Disney Plus for $75.99 a month (opens in new tab).
This is one exceptional Disney Plus deal – and if you’re considering signing up, why not go big or go home and sign up to the Disney Plus bundle for just $13.99 a month (opens in new tab)?
What can I watch on Disney Plus?
Want to step into the realms of fairytales, magic, and childhood nostalgia? Disney Plus has got you covered with its library of Disney classics – and then some.
On top of Disney and Pixar throwback titles, Disney Plus is home to many a Disney Plus Original, such as Obi-Wan Kenobi and She-Hulk. It’s also the place to watch the long-anticipated sequel to Hocus Pocus – streaming now.
There are even documentaries from National Geographic, including The World According to Jeff Goldburg and Apollo: Missions to the Moon.
Young or old, it’s fair to say nothing quite hits the heart like a movie straight out of the Disney and Pixar machine, making this the platform for avid Disney fans in particular.

Disney Plus bundle: what can I watch on ESPN Plus?
If there’s one glaring aspect of entertainment missing from Disney Plus’ roster, the answer is probably sport. Thankfully, with the Disney Plus bundle, the inclusion of ESPN Plus more than caters for sporting spectators.
As well as hosting live sports including UFC live streams (with access to exclusive PPV events, too), NHL, college basketball, and the Emirates FA Cup, ESPN Plus also has its very own original titles exclusive to the streaming platform.
From Peyton’s Places with Peyton Manning, to Stephen A’s World with Stephen A. Smith, these ESPN Plus Originals give insight into key sport personalities and their craft to their chosen game.
ESPN Plus subscribers also get complete access to the 30 for 30 library. This includes the likes of The Infinite Race, all about an indigenous community in Mexico called the Tarahumara who kickstarted the barefoot ultrarunning craze, now devastated by drug cartels.
