    I wonder if they'll consider a bundle of just Disney+ and Hulu. I have zero interest in ESPN.

    I agree. But I think, if you paid for Disney+ monthly and Hulu monthly, it would still be more than $12.99 total. So whether ESPN is there or not, that price is still a bargain whether or not you used ESPN.

    Doubt it. Simply put, they need people like you to pitch in your extra few bucks to keep the price lower (and therefore more attractive) for those who want it.

    HBO Max, the ball's in your court...

    I am so opposed to paying for streaming of ESPN that I might be dumb enough to purchase Disney+ and Hulu individually so as not to have it. It looks like the bundle only includes the "with commercials" version of Hulu and I'm already on the commercial-free plan. I'm certainly happy to continue paying the extra dollar a month or whatever it is to not have commercials.

    The question I have is what will become of Hulu+Live TV, which includes ESPN. If you added Disney+ that would be $52. It seems like many will dump it in favor of this new bundle...

    Give me a bundle with the following and I'd drop cable tomorrow:
    • Hulu + Live TV: $40
    • No Streaming Commercials: Add $4
    • Enhanced Cloud DVR: Add $15
    • Disney+: Add $6.99
      =============================
    • Total: $65.99/mo
    I'm currently paying $54.99/mo for the "Action & Entertainment" package on FiOS, plus another $4.99/mo to rent the CableCARD. So for an extra $6 a month, it'd be a no brainer.

    The current price for all that is $67.97/mo ;)

    Hulu w/no ads + Live TV $50.99
    Enhanced Cloud DVR $9.99
    Disney+ $6.99

    If you can get by with the regular DVR that comes with it, you can get it all for $57.98. Put up with Hulu ads and you're down to $51.98.

    ESPN+ is not the same as the ESPN you get through a TV subscription. ESPN+ does not include the channels, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN News, ESPN U, SEC Network, etc.

    ESPN+ is basically what used to be called ESPN 3, the online video content that use to be free with TV subscriptions. They just started making everyone pay extra for it even if you had a TV subscription.

    I’m a sports fan but mostly just baseball, football, basketball and golf. I tried ESPN+ for a few months last year and it didn’t add much value for those sports. I hardly touched it so I have no interest in the service anymore.

    With no option to include Hulu without ads, this bundle is worthless to me. Not to mention I have no interest in ESPN+. I’ll glad pay for Disney+ and Hulu without ads separately. Try again Disney. Give me a option with no ads for around $16 and I’ll bite.

    It's worth noting - in the original article I posted, Iger says the service will start with 300 movies then grow to 400.

    Source? Just curious where this came from because we know it will not include their entire library, at least not at launch. Some movies are still under contract to Netflix.

    Where’d you get that from and why not just include that instead of having us badger you for the source.

    I’m ok. Not angry even a little bit.

    That image came from something and is pretty important info.
    Why not just include where it came from?

    That was totally unnecessary.

    And that was asking like a gentleman, so I am happy to repost the link...

    Sorry I hurt your feelings.
    Wouldn’t it have been just as easy to post the link in the first place.
    I’m just confused as to why one would have to ask you for the link.
