Disney Plus has now launched its new Duo Premium plan, offering subscribers the option to save on the cost of ad-free Disney Plus and ad-free Hulu subscriptions.
Last month, Disney announced a new round of price increases which are due to increase the price of Disney Plus, ESPN Plus, and Hulu. Once those price increases take effect next month, the cost of Disney Plus Premium will increase from $10.99 to $13.99 a month. Likewise, the price of Hulu (No Ads) will increase from $14.99 to $17.99 a month.
If a subscriber was to subscribe to both of these subscriptions separately, they would be looking at a total of $31.98. This is where the new Disney Plus Duo Premium plan comes in, as it offers a way to significantly save on both plans.
The new Disney Plus Duo Premium plan costs $19.99 a month and unlocks access to Disney Plus Premium and Hulu (No Ads), resulting in a saving of $11.99 each month, based on the new prices due to take effect next month.
As a reminder, Disney already offers a Disney Bundle Duo Basic plan which, unlike the new Premium version, doesn’t offer an ad-free viewing experience. Instead, Disney Bundle Duo Basic combines Disney+ Basic (With Ads) and Hulu (With Ads) for $9.99 a month.
Considering the Disney Plus Basic plan typically costs $7.99 a month (currently available at just $1.99 a month thanks to a new limited-time deal), and Hulu (With Ads) also typically costs $7.99 a month, the bundle plan results in a saving of around $6 each month.
As has been the case for some time now, subscribers also have the option of adding ESPN Plus to either bundle with the Disney Bundle Trio Basic bundle costing $12.99 a month (increasing to $14.99/month in October) and the Disney Bundle Trio Premium plan costing $19.99 a month (increasing to $24.99 a month in October).
