The Walt Disney Company held their Q3 2019 earnings call today, during which CEO Bob Iger discussed the upcoming launch of Disney+ and shared some exciting news for those planning to subscribe.

  • Iger announced that users will be able to sign up for a bundle of Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu, upon the launch of the new streaming service, for just $12.99 a month.
  • Hulu, when subscribed to through this bundle, will include ads.
  • The monthly subscription cost of Disney+ on its own was already set at $6.99.
  • Monthly subscriptions to Hulu start at $5.99 while ESPN+ subscriptions start at $4.99.
  • All of this adds up to about a $5 discount per month when subscribing to the bundle as opposed to all three services individually.
  • Iger also shared some news regarding the content that will be found on Disney+.
  • The CEO announced that popular films Home Alone, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Cheaper by the Dozen, and Night at the Museum, are expected to be “reimagined” for Disney+.
  • There were no further details shared on exactly what this means or when these “reimagined” films would be available.
  • Additionally, as announced last week, D23 Expo 2019 attendees and D23 members will get an exclusive subscription offer for Disney+ during the expo.
