Cable Is Back With Disney Hulu Max Streaming Bundle

Streaming services are finally starting to look a bit more like the cable bundles of yore, as Disney and Warner Bros Discovery have made the huge move of teaming up for a streaming bundle. Instead of paying for these services separately, this summer, you’ll be able to get a bundle that combines Disney+, Hulu, and Max for one consolidated monthly price. Currently, the pricing options for this bundle aren’t available, but there will be ad-free and ad-supported options to choose from.

Disney And Warner Bros Discovery Team Up


Disney+ and Hulu are already available as a bundle due to the companies both being owned by Disney, but the addition of Max will be a big value-add for people who want access to all the content these services have to offer. It’s also a pretty groundbreaking move, as you don’t often see streaming services from separate companies bundled together, especially if the companies themselves are making the offer. Some third-party companies like Verizon offer bundles, like the Netflix and Max bundle, but that would require you to be a Verizon customer

The Cost Of Savings

This Disney+, Hulu, and Max bundle gives consumers some more flexibility. Both Disney and Warner Bros Discovery are calling it “the best value in entertainment,” which could be true depending on the pricing of the bundles. Right now, you can get a basic subscription to Disney+ and Hulu with ads for $9.99 per month and pay the same price for a Max subscription with ads.

Presumably, this means that we can expect the Disney+, Hulu, and Max bundle to be less than $20 per month for the ad-supported tier. Meanwhile, the ad-free tier of Disney+ and Hulu is $19.99 per month, and the Max standard ad-free tier is $15.99 per month. This means we should likely expect the ad-free tier to be less than $36 per month to make these bundle deals people would be interested in.

Cable Is Irrelevant But Its Spirit Lives On


Subscribers can get a trio bundle of Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+. It seems likely that the new Disney, Hulu, and Max bundle will allow some sports add-ons, considering both Warner Bros Discovery and Disney are on board for upcoming sports streaming that offers subscribers live and on-demand fees from sports broadcast partners like Fox. With major companies teaming up on streaming bundles like these and giving consumers access to live sports and other live TV events, cable is steadily becoming increasingly irrelevant.

This Should Be Good For Consumers

This could be good news for consumers if the Disney+, Hulu, and Max bundle can save subscribers money on these three services. Hopefully, it will mean more flexibility in the market instead of subscribing to many different services and getting charged ten monthly bills. Then again, there’s always the chance that we’ll be forced into bundles and price hikes instead of allowing for a la carte selection of the streaming services we use.

For now, the Disney+, Hulu, and Max bundle seems like it could be a good thing. We’ll have to wait and see when they announce prices for the bundles later. Stay tuned, and we’ll keep you updated.
