Hulu Increases its Monthly Price by $1 as Disney pushes its streaming bundle
The majority owner of Hulu (Disney) has increased the prices of its other streaming service over the recent years hence making its bundle that includes all of them look more attractive. The price of the Disney bundle however which includes Hulu, Disney Plus, and SSPN Plus does not appear to be going up along Hulu’s prices.
Regardless, the price already went up by a dollar earlier this year which was when Disney Plus got a one dollar per month price hike.
Currently, it costs $13.99 a month for a version with ad-supported Hulu and $19.99 per month for the ad-free Hulu. If you would like to have all the services together, this is a very good deal compared to buying them separately. This would literally save you $8 every month.
