Verizon has expanded its partnership with Disney+ to include Hulu and ESPN for some customers. Wireless customers on two of the most expensive unlimited plans will receive the Disney Bundle package free for a year.
Beginning Thursday, August 20th, the Disney three-way bundle will be included in Verizon’s Play More and Get More unlimited plans for as long as customers stay on those tiers. The bundle of Disney+, Hulu (with ads) and ESPN Plus is regularly $12.99 monthly. If all of the streaming services were bought separately, it would cost customers $19.
Two other wireless plans will include six months of Disney+ at no charge, but not the full bundle.
“Our new Mix & Match plans make the choice clearer than ever: customers get the best network and the best value with Verizon,” said Frank Boulben, SVP Marketing and Products of Verizon Consumer Group. “We led the industry by giving customers Disney+ on us. Now we’re adding The Disney Bundle, which includes Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+, for more entertainment choices that appeal to a variety of interests. We can’t wait to see what customers choose to suit their needs.”
“The addition of The Disney Bundle to our agreement with Verizon reinforces our commitment to providing their subscribers with access to high-quality entertainment from Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+,” said Sean Breen, EVP, Platform Distribution, The Walt Disney Company. “We are always looking for the most advantageous ways for consumers to experience our content and we are pleased to work with Verizon so that they can provide their customers with these appealing new offers.”
Verizon’s Get More Unlimited (starting at $55/line with four lines) includes Disney+, Hulu and ESPN Plus along with unlimited access to Apple Music. Play Unlimited (starting at $45/line with four lines) also includes the Disney Bundle plus six months of Apple Music free.
