Coming soon: Price increase for Disney+, bundle with Hulu, ESPN+

The increase will be effective later this month.

The monthly price for Disney+ and the Disney+ Bundle with Hulu package will be increasing by the end of the month. 

On March 26, the cost of each service will rise by $1/month. Disney+ by itself is currently $6.99/month, with the price set to rise to $7.99/month.

The bundle that features Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+ will also see a $1 increase, going from its current rate of $12.99/month to $13.99/month, also on March 26. 

Prices for existing subscribers will increase on first bill on or after March 26. 

The yearly subscription for Disney+ is rising by $10 to $79.99, which averages out at $6.67 per month. 

If you lock in a one-year deal – meaning you pay for an entire year up front – right now, you can get Disney+ for $69.99 and avoid the price increase for a year, which averages out to $5.83 per month. 

ESPN+ subscribers will be getting more content with an agreement between the NHL and the sports network that will see ESPN serve as the national home for professional hockey, effectively replacing NBC Sports as the national lead. 

The seven-year contract will see the Stanley Cup Final and Stanley Cup Playoffs televised on ABC and ESPN, in addition to 100 regular-season games per season on ESPN channels and ESPN+. 

Many of the national games will be streamed live on ESPN+ and Hulu, with more than 1,000 out-of-market games (non-Wild games in Minnesota) available to ESPN+ subscribers. 

ESPN+ can now be accessed through Hulu, Hulu announced Wednesday
