If you are a fan of Marvel, Star Wars, or Pixar, you probably already subscribe to Disney Plus. The service had 130 million subscribers as of December, and Disney expects to add over 100 million more by late 2024. Of course, there are still plenty of people who have not taken the plunge, and Disney wants to give them a cheaper way to do so. Hulu subscribers can now add on a Disney Plus subscription for the discounted price of $2.99 a month.
Hulu subscribers get a Disney Plus discount
Early last spring, Disney introduced a bundle that included all three of its streaming services. Appropriately dubbed The Disney Bundle, it featured subscriptions to Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN Plus for $12.99 a month. The price has since gone up to $13.99 a month.
If you planned on joining all three services anyway, it’s a solid deal that can save you a few bucks. But what about the customers who don’t care about live sports? Previously, the only option was to subscribe to the other two services separately, but that finally changed. Hulu subscribers can now add Disney Plus to their plans for $2.99 a month. This is now available to subscribers of either the standard Hulu plan or the Hulu (No Ads) plan.
When Disney Plus first arrived in late 2019, a subscription cost $6.99 a month. Last March, Disney raised the price by $1 to $7.99 a month. If you already pay for Hulu and want to get Disney Plus as well, you can save $5 every month with this new offer.
Hulu now lists Disney Plus and ESPN+ as Partner Add-ons on its website.
“For an additional $2.99/month, eligible Hulu-billed subscribers can get the Disney+ Add-on to access content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and more via the Disney+ app and website,” Hulu explains on its website. “Head to your Account page to sign up for the add-on and activate your Disney+ account. Then download the Disney+ app or visit DisneyPlus.com to start streaming!”
