Disney's new streaming bundle wants to compete with Netflix
Get all the ultra original storyline live-action remakes of old Disney movies in one place.
'MURICA — Disney has finally dragged its clunky feet into the streaming race by offering a bundle of its three streaming services—Disney+, ad-supported Hulu, and ESPN+ for $12.99 a month starting November 12.
The $12.99 price coincidentally happens to be the same as Netflix's standard service tier and Amazon Prime Video.
Disney really has the pulse of consumers. Hulu—but with commercials? Isn't that just cable TV? But who doesn't like a few—or a ton—of annoying ads while streaming shows?
Mickey really connected with a grand slam including ESPN+ — especially since the bundle is only offered in the U.S. — where finding sports content or fat people talking about sports is next to impossible.
Disney+ is the diamond in the rough that people will come for.
All your favorite Disney cartoons, their live-action remakes, their eventual remasters, which will hopefully then get recycled back into cartoons, all in one place—the Disney creative circle of life.
But the real question—actually the only one—how many times will Disney let you share your password?
