Earlier this week, Verizon announced some changes to two of its Unlimited plans, which would offer up Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu for free to its customers.
Verizon won't automatically move you to these plans, so you will need to make the changes for yourself. Luckily, nothing else about the plans have changed, you're just getting more free stuff. But if you are a current customer, you will need to go ahead and "upgrade" to this new plan.
New customers can simply select the plan, when they sign up.
What is the Disney+ bundle?
The Disney+ bundle is a bundle that Disney offers, and it includes Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu for $12.99 per month. Verizon is now offering this bundle in two of its four unlimited plans.
With this bundle, you're going to get a ton of great Disney content on Disney+, loads of sports (both live and original content) on ESPN+ and Hulu which has movies and TV shows. During this time of us all being stuck at home, and needing something new to watch, this is a really great bundle to include with Verizon plans.
Which plans include free Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu?
Verizon has four unlimited plans (five if you count the Just Kids one), and they start at $70 per month for a single line.
But only two of them will get you Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu free (Verizon's wording is "included" and not free).
Those two plans are the Play More Unlimited and the Get More Unlimited plans for $80 and $90 respectively.
The best plan for most people is going to be the Play More Unlimited plan. That is because it offers Premium Network Access (aka 50GB of high-speed data before you might get slowed down), 15GB of 4G LTE Mobile hotspot and unlimited after that, as well as Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu included. You also get Apple Music for six months, and 5G is included at no extra charge.
With the Play More Unlimited plan, you also get streaming video at 720p instead of 480p on the Start Unlimited plan.
How do I activate my free Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu?
To activate your free Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu, you will need to do it through the My Verizon app.
Once you're in the app. Tap on Account.
Then tap on Add-ons.
From there, swipe over to Entertainment.
Now you'll see a "Learn More" button for each service. Click on that, and it'll give you some details about the perk, and at the bottom there is an "Enroll" button. Tap on that.
This is going to enroll you in the perk and then have you sign into Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu.
That's pretty much it. From there, you're all set and will have Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu included for the life of your account. This is a $12.99 value, and definitely worth the price.
