Disney Plus is a popular streaming service that currently has exclusive rights to Marvel content. Disney also owns ESPN+ and Hulu, which is why they offer them in a discounted bundle.

After Netflix and Apple TV Plus, Disney has also raised the price of its streaming service, which implies that their subscribers’ pockets will become even lighter.

Similarly, Hulu with No Ads bundle has been increased by $7/mo and has gone from $75.99/month to $82.99/month.

It’s impossible to use them all. I was thinking of canceling Netflix and HBO Max several weeks ago. I didn’t but I still wanted to get rid of something. The price increase from Hulu made it easy to say goodbye to my Disney bundle today.

This notification created widespread confusion among Hulu subscribers. As a result, Hulu Support has clarified that this alert only applies to Hulu + Live TV subscribers. Others can simply ignore it.

This has coincided with the price increase by Disney Plus where the base plan has gone from $7.99 per month to $10.99 per month starting December 8, 2022. The ad-free version goes from $12.99 per month to $14.99 per month.

Additionally, the Disney+ (No Ads) Add-on will be discontinued on December 8, 2022. Existing users who purchased the add-on before it was canceled will be able to keep it as long as they do not cancel or remove it from their plan.
