Now that the ad-supported tier of Disney+ is finally available – at least in the US – it’s time to take a look at the many different versions of the Disney Bundle and find out which streaming bundle is the best for everyone. Disney is giving users a bit more flexibility now with these bundles, since there is one that only includes Disney+ and Hulu, without ESPN+.

So today, we’re going to go over each bundle and help you decide which one is the best for you.

Disney bundle pricing

There’s now three bundles from Disney:

  • Duo Basic – Disney+ and Hulu with ads for $9.99 per month
  • Trio Basic – Hulu, Disney+ and ESPN+ with ads for $12.99 per month
  • Trio Premium – Hulu and Disney+ are ad-free, ESPN+ with ads for $19.99 per month.

These are all pretty self-explanatory. You can get it without ESPN+. And then the other two are with or without ads. Disney, unfortunately, is not allowing you to mix and match ads and no ads for Disney+ and Hulu. Nor can you get Disney+ and Hulu without ads and without ESPN+, which is a bummer.

Disney Duo Basic

The Duo Basic is going to be perfect for those that don’t really watch many sports. Since you’re getting Disney+ and Hulu with ads included here. The pricing is also very good. Since Disney+ Basic with Ads is $7.99 per month and Hulu with ads is $6.99 per month. So you’re saving roughly 33% over the regular price here.

You’re also getting a ton of content here. As Disney is not limiting what is available on the ads-version of either service. You’ll get the full library and the ability to stream in 4K as well.

Disney Trio Basic

If you want sports too, then the Disney Trio Basic is a good bundle to subscribe to. This one is $12.99, and it’s also a really good value. Since Disney+ with ads is $7.99, Hulu with ads $6.99 and ESPN+ is $9.99 now. That makes this a $25 bundle that you’re getting for essentially half off.


With ESPN+ included, you’re going to be getting 75+ exclusive NHL games here, LaLiga, Bundesliga, MLS, MLB, college football and basketball and a whole lot more.

Disney Trio Premium

Then we have the cream of the crop. The Disney Trio Premium. So this is ad-free Disney+ and Hulu, but ESPN+ will still have ads. That is unfortunate, but since a lot of their content is live, ads are going to exist no matter what.

This bundle is $19.99, but it would normally be $36. So it’s still a really good price here. Since ad-free Disney+ would cost you $10.99, Hulu without ads is $14.99 and ESPN+ is $9.99.



So which bundle should you get?

Each bundle is really good actually, especially at their bundled prices. If you’re not a big sports fan, and definitely not a big UFC fan, then getting the Duo Basic might be the best option. Sure you’ll have to deal with ads on Disney+ and Hulu. But on Disney+ at least, they are pretty limited, at just 4 minutes per hour of programming. Hulu is a bit longer, as we all know.

Now, if you do want sports from ESPN+, either of the Trio bundles is pretty good, and basically the same. The only difference is ads or not on Hulu and Disney+. Of course, I’d recommend the cheaper Trio Basic plan, since it is just $12.99 per month, which is impressive for getting three streaming services.
