If you’re not already a subscriber, it’s definitely time to take the leap. Disney+ has thousands upon thousands of hours of great content to watch on its own, but smart people out there will opt for the bundle. For just $12.99 per month, you get a bundle with Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ with all the live sports you could possibly want. That’s right, $12.99… and it includes multiple screens and 4K streaming. That’s less than you’ll pay for one month of Netflix’s premium service on its own if you want 4K, and with this bundle you get all three services!
