Disney+: New Pricing And Bundle Details Revealed
During a call with media and Disney investors to report on third-quarter earnings, CEO Bob Iger dropped some new information regarding the bundling and pricing of the upcoming Disney+ streaming platform. The service, set to go live on November 12, will be made available as a package deal for those who choose to go that route, for $ 12.99 a month. The bundle will include Disney+, ESPN+, and the ad-supported version of Hulu.
Those who would rather keep their stream service subscriptions un-bundled will pay $ 6.99 a month for Disney+ alone.
Iger also mentioned that members of the Disney fan club, D23, will be offered the opportunity to subscribe to the Disney+ services first–a promotion that will likely be elaborated on at this month’s upcoming D23 Expo in Anaheim, California.
In addition to the bundle pricing, Iger spoke to the potential of new Disney+ projects, citing “reimaginings” of films like Home Alone, Night At The Museum, Diary Of A Whimpy Kid, and Cheaper By The Dozen as potentially on the docket for Disney+ down the line–though it is currently unclear just what was meant by “reimaginings.”
Are we on the precipice of a Disney+ specific Home Alone cinematic universe? Only time will tell.
