Disney Will Offer a $12.99 Disney+ Bundle with Hulu and ESPN+

Now, it appears a bundle deal including Disney+, Hulu and ESPN will launch November 12 for an astounding $12.99 per month.

The bundle price is competitive with the monthly fees for Netflix, whose standard two-screen plan costs $13, and Amazon Prime Video, which sets users back $12.99 a month. It would only be the second time that Disney managed to top $1 billion in film profit over a single three-month period, after reporting a profit of $1.01 billion in the quarter initiated by "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".

Thanks to the box office performance of Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel, and Toy Story this past fiscal quarter, Disney saw its revenue increase by 33% year-over-year to $20.25 billion.

Should Apple's streaming service cost more than Disney's newly announced bundle, it could be in trouble from the outset.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge was supposed to be one of the biggest rides coming to Disneyland but according to Disney CEO Bob Iger, the ride has actually scared people away. There, the company will finally unveil just what the Disney+ streaming service looks like and will offer Disney fans the chance to be among the first to sign up. The recent Cheaper by the Dozen movies starring Steve Martin, themselves remakes of the 1950 film, also grossed over $300 million - making all three titles easy choices for Disney to build out its family-friendly base on Disney+.

Disney also included results from Hulu, the online streaming service in which it acquired a controlling stake with the Fox deal. People also held off on visiting Walt Disney World in Florida until Galaxy's Edge opens there later this month, McCarthy said. Disney+ will have a ton of great content sourced from all of Disney's properties, as well as plenty of original shows that will not hit competing platforms.

At its US theme parks, revenues were down thanks in large part to the increased cost of getting the Star Wars themed land, Galaxy's Edge, ready for opening.

Other factors Iger and Disney officials attributed to the decline in visitors were one-day ticket costs being raised "substantially" and the ongoing integration of Fox's entertainment assets.

"It is important for us to continue to fuel those channels with enough quality and original programming to support these businesses as they exist today", Iger said.
