Disney+ Monthly Subscription to Increase In Spring 2021
Today was a HUGE day for Disney+ as the Walt Disney Company held its annual Investors Day. If you’ve been following along with us you’ll know that Disney took the opportunity to reveal lots of details regarding upcoming programs heading to the streaming service in the year ahead! The company also announced better than expected subscriber numbers with 137 million subscribers across all Disney platforms.
With hundreds of programs in the pipeline and ambitious plans for the future across Hulu, Disney+ and ESPN, its not surprising the media giant has made plans to increase the fee on monthly paid subscriptions beginning in Spring 2021.
According to an official statement from The Walt Disney Company, beginning on March 26, 2021, Disney+ will go up by a $1.00 monthly in the US. This brings the monthly cost of subscription up to $7.99 per month or $79.99 per year. If bundling your Disney+ package with Hulu and ESPN+, the monthly cost will be $13.99 per month.
The European Market will also have their prices hiked up to €8.99 a month also starting in March.
The increase comes just after Disney+ launches the first of its Marvel-focused series WandaVision which is slated to debut on January 15th. Hot on its heels for March 19, 2021 will be Falcon and the Winter Soldier and May will mark the premiere of Loki.
With a big increase in new content Disney is banking on subscribers not minding too much about a dollar a month increase. It should also be noted that though no one likes it when their streaming gets pricier streaming frontrunner Netflix also recently hiked its prices by $1 a month for standard plans and $2 a month for the premium service.
