Disney have announced that along with Disney+, they will be adding ESPN+ and Hulu for just $12.99.

This comes as a huge shock to many as it looks like Disney is coming right for Netflix, with its new streaming service package costing the same as Netflix’s most popular plan in the US.

Naturally you’ll still be able to subscribe to Disney+, ESPN+ or Hulu separately, but the combined package comes at a cheaper option.

Individual plans for Disney+, ESPN+, and the basic tier of Hulu cost $6.99, $4.99, and $5.99, meaning that five dollars will be saved if you want all three of them and take Disney up on their upcoming package.

As Deadline report, the Hulu plan will be their ad-supported one, meaning you’ll likely still be subject to advertising if you subscribed.

This is supposedly going to become available come the 12th of November, when Disney+ launches to the public.

The news was announced by Disney chief Bob Iger during the company’s third-quarter earnings call with Wall Street analysts, as he said:

Nothing is more important to us than getting this right,” Iger said about Disney’s streaming venture.”

He also went on to mention how Disney are reaching out to competitors such as Google, Amazon and Apple to allow Disney+ to be available on their platforms. He said:

We think it’s important to achieve scale relatively quickly and they’ll be an important part of that.

Thus far it’s unclear whether such a package will be offered here in the UK, or elsewhere.

It was also announced that properties like Home Alone, Night at the Museum and Diary of a Wimpy Kid would be rebooted for the streaming service.

Disney+ will also bring with it plenty of Marvel TV shows, with Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige hugely excited for what’s to come:

WandaVision will be unlike anything we’ve done before, and I’m excited to talk to people more about it, eventually. And you see Daniel Bruhl coming back to Zemo and having more time to spend with these beloved characters in Falcon and Winter Soldier. Loki returning — it’s an embarrassment of riches, all of it extremely thought out by the team Marvel Studios, to do it in ways that I hope will satisfy fans who are anticipating it, but in a way they are absolutely not expecting it.

Exciting stuff…
