Hulu Adds Disney+ and ESPN+ to Subscription, While Raising Their Price
Hulu announced Friday morning that there will be an increase in the price of its live TV subscriptions by $5 a month. They will also be adding Disney+ and ESPN+ to the subscription tier. The price increase starts on December 21, 2021. The streaming service will cost $69.99 per month for the ad-supported subscription and $75.99 per month for the ad-free version.
Current subscribers that bundle Disney+ and Hulu + Live will see their package decrease because the price decrease essentially drops what the Disney bundle with Hulu and live TV costs. the ad-supported live TV offering is currently $72.99 a month while the ad-free offering is $78.99 a month. Non-bundled Hulu + Live TV subscribers will no longer have the option to opt-out of the bundle.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Hulu + Live TV remains the strongest when it comes to average revenue per user, averaging $84.89 per user while the standard Hulu subscription averages $12.75 per user, according to Disney’s latest earnings report.”
