The Hulu Disney Plus merge date is fast approaching, with subscribers no doubt keen to see the two services combined. Here’s the need-to-know info on when Disney Plus and Hulu will combine, as well as information on the bundle.
When is Hulu merging with Disney Plus?
Hulu is merging with Disney Plus by the end of 2023.
Disney plans to have Hulu content available on Disney Plus by the end of December 2023. This means that in 2024, Hulu content will be viewable on Disney Plus and users won’t have to switch apps, meaning less friction.
When can I buy the Disney Plus Hulu bundle?
The Disney Plus Hulu bundled is available now, even without the merging of services.
At the time of writing, there are three bundles available for US customers. These are:
- Disney Bundle Duo Basic at $9.99 per month.
- This includes Disney+ (With Ads) and Hulu (With Ads).
- Disney Bundle Trio Basic at $12.99 per month.
- This includes Disney+ (With Ads), Hulu (With Ads), and ESPN+ (With Ads).
- Disney Bundle Trio Premium at $19.99/month.
- This includes Disney+ (No Ads), Hulu (No Ads), and ESPN+ (With Ads).
When the merger is complete, those with one of the above subscriptions will be able to access both Disney Plus and Hulu content from the same app. This limits the friction users experience when moving between services, saving time.
It’s worth mentioning that those with a legacy Disney Bundle will still be able to continue that subscription, so long as they do not cancel or change it. This older package includes Disney+ (No Ads), Hulu (With Ads), and ESPN+ (With Ads).
