MUMBAI: With the launch of Disney+, Walt Disney Company (Disney) will offer a bundle package of its three streaming services — Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ from 12 November. The bundle has been priced at $12.99 a month.

Disney chief executive officer Bob Iger revealed the plan for the bundle during Disney’s quarterly earnings call with Wall Street analysts. Iger also disclosed that Disney is in talks with Apple, Amazon and Google to distribute its highly awaited Disney Plus and the newly announced bundle on their platforms.

“The positive response to our direct-to-consumer strategy has been gratifying, and the integration of the businesses we acquired from 21st Century Fox only increases our confidence in our ability to leverage decades of iconic storytelling and the powerful creative engines across the entire company to deliver an extraordinary value proposition to consumers,” Iger said in a press release.

Disney+ will enter the market with 300 film titles and 7,500 episodes of Disney TV series. Eight of the films will be from the Star Wars franchise, 18 will be Pixar, 70 will be from Disney Animation and four will be Marvel.
