Disney Plus and Hulu will see price increases next month

Disney Plus is set to get a price increase next month with the service jumping up in cost. Disney officially announced the changes on November 4. Stating that the monthly subscription fee for Disney Plus would get an increase on December 8.

There is a caveat, of course. This is going to be the new price for the ad-free tier. See, the change is in line with Disney’s release of the ad-supported tier coming out at the same time. When that new tier releases, it will become the new $7.99 plan. You’ll still be able to pay the same price, just not for ad-free content.

Disney Plus currently costs $7.99 a month and you don’t have to deal with ads. So that means you can binge as much Star Wars and Marvel content (let’s be honest, that’s why you have the service) as you want without seeing a single ad break.


But that’s all set to change in the next few weeks. If you haven’t already done so, you may want to consider upgrading your plan to the annual membership if Disney still allows it at the lower per month price.

The price of Disney Plus will increase to $10.99 a month if you want to avoid ads

Paying an extra $3 a month may not seem like a lot, but that will add up over the course of a year. That’s $36 extra every year. Disney isn’t the only streaming service raising prices either. Netflix is raising its prices as well in the lead up to an ad-supported tier. Which will no doubt have some subscribers feeling the extra pinch if they happen to have both services.

Disney is also raising the price of Hulu bundles. There are two packages to choose from. Starting December 8, subscribers can get a bundle that contains Hulu’s ad-supported tier, Hulu + Live TV with ads, the ESPN+ with ads, and the Disney Plus ad-free tier for $75 a month. There’s also the bundle option where Hulu has no ads for $83 a month.


Hulu by itself will remain the same though for its ad-supported and ad-free options. Disney is also increasing the price of its Legacy bundle which contains Disney Plus with no ads, Hulu with ads, and ESPN+ with ads from $13.99 a month to $14.99 a month. Even if you’re already on this plan. It will also no longer be available to subscribe to after December 7.
