If you’ve been looking to try Disney Plus, but haven’t wanted to spend the money, you’re in luck. Disney Plus just announced a new promotion that’ll let you access their streaming service for several months — at a fraction of the cost. And if you’re already a Disney Plus subscriber, you can still take advantage of these savings.
Disney Plus Basic (with ads)
So, if you’re interested in saving on streaming (and don’t mind ads), you can now get Disney Plus Basic (with ads) for just $1.99 a month for three months. The standard price for a Disney Plus with ads subscription is $7.99. The deal is available for both new and returning customers in the US only, and in total can save you $18. You’ll want to jump on this fast though; the promotion expires September 20.
Despite this discount, the company is planning another price hike for its other subscription options starting October 12. According to CNBC, while the price for Disney Plus with ads will remain $7.99 a month, there will be a 27% price increase for commercial-free Disney Plus, bringing it to $13.99 a month. The price of an ad-free Hulu subscription is also being raised to $17.99 a month, a 20% price increase. Hulu with ads will remain $7.99.
