ESPN+, Disney+, And Hulu’s New Pricing Schemes This Fall

Web Desk — Neither Disney+ nor its fellow Disney-owned streaming services Hulu and ESPN+ have had the simplest of pricing schemes. This fall they are going to be a little more complex and expansive with more options for more countries.

Starting November 1, 2023, Canada and some European nations will get the ad-supported option for Disney+. It will run $8 in the former, and 5 pounds or 6 euros in the latter. Current subscribers, unless they decide to switch, will stay in the ad-free plan.

Things are getting more complicated in the US, with additional options and a number of pricing changes across Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ — and with all three as the Disney Bundle.

Joe Earley, president of direct-to-consumer for Disney Entertainment, said in a press release that the strong momentum of our ad-supported plans in the U.S. demonstrated the importance of providing consumers with choice, flexibility, and value.

Earley further said, “We are excited to expand that offering in more markets across the globe, including in Europe and Canada, and to launch a new premium duo bundle of ad-free Disney+ and Hulu this fall, as we take steps toward making extensive Hulu content available via Disney+ later this year for Bundle subscribers.”

Breakdown across the board:

Disney+ pricing

With ads: $8 a month (unchanged)

No ads: $14 a month, or $140 a year, effective October 12

With ads: $8 a month (unchanged), or $80 a year

On the subscriber numbers side of the ledger, Disney+ now stands at 46 million subscribers in the U.S. and Canada. It has just shy of 106 million worldwide. ESPN+ now stands at 25.2 million subscribers, down about 100,000 from the previous quarter.
