Disney+ to rise from $6.99 to $7.99 in the United States

Disney+ has confirmed plans to raise the price of its streaming service in the United States.

The company has revealed that from tomorrow (March 26), the price of its service will rise from $6.99 to $7.99, but it’s possible to lock in the $6.99 subscription by signing up before then.

To save even more money, you can subscribe for an annual pass at $69.99, which effectively means you’ll be paying $5.83 per month for the next year rather than $7.99/mo.

For those looking to take advantage of the Disney+ bundle, which offers access to Disney+ as well as Hulu and ESPN+, you should upgrade now: the price will climb from $12.99 to $13.99 and $18.99 to $19.99 for the ad-supported and ad-free subscription respectively.

The price rise was first announced in December, and follows news that the company has reached 100 million subscribers around the world. By comparison, Apple is still offering its Apple TV+ subscription service for free, and offers just a handful of shows in its catalog.
