If Disney wants to make things easier tying all of these things together is a clear move. Executives at ESPN have previously hinted a package may be in the cards.

Mayer said Disney”will probably package at a discounted price to offer more value for customers.” Hulu’s monthly subscription lately dropped to a beginning price of $5.99. Additionally, it supplies a $11.99″no commercials” program and Hulu with Live TV, which can be $44.99 / month. ESPN+ costs $4.99 per month or $49.99 annually. The open question is Disney+ will be; that something we are hoping to learn as today’s event continues on.

Pairing its services together will produce a challenge yes, but may eat into the cable industry and internet TV services like YouTube TV and Sling TV. It is likely that some consumers will not require a cable bundle if they have got sports programming TV episodes, and Disney’s vault of Marvel movies and classics in one bundle for a straightforward price.

To kick off its Investor Day presentation this afternoon, Disney laid out its direct-to-consumer strategy, going over the numerous assets that put the company in a strong position as it prepares for a major face-off using Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, along with other video streaming solutions. (Disney took a controlling stake in Hulu with the completion of its acquisition of 21st Century Fox assets)
The specifics here will prove interesting: Can there be a package including Hulu’s live TV support? Since that will look next to the standard combo, but it’s what you will need if you want to see ESPN the cable channel to ESPN + in addition.
