More changes are coming to Disney’s collection of streaming platforms. During a recent earnings call, Disney CEO Bob Iger said that he hopes to merge Disney+ and Hulu into a “one-app experience.”
“While we will continue to offer Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+ as standalone options, this is a logical progression of our [direct-to-consumer] offerings that will provide greater opportunities for advertisers while giving bundle subscribers access to more robust and streamlined content, resulting in greater audience engagement and ultimately leading to a more unified streaming experience,” Iger said.
Iger didn’t stop there. According to a report from Variety, Iger also has plans to increase the subscription price of Disney+. It wouldn’t be the first time that the company has done so. Last year, the company increased the price of its ad and non-ad-supported tiers by $3. As for when these changes may take place, it’s unclear.
“It has not really been fully determined,” Iger said when discussing when and how these changes would take place.
“Where we are headed is for one experience, with general entertainment content on Disney+.”
