Disney+ seems really good, before even noticing that it's ridiculously cheap relative to Netflix which has basically just become a storage center for my daughter's repeated viewing of The Grinch.

I suspect being cheap won't last long.

Looks like get Hulu account first, and then add the Disney plus bundle and you can have an ad free Hulu with the discount.

https://help.hulu.com/s/article/disn...language=en-US

Before getting the bundle, there are a few things to keep in mind as an existing Hulu subscriber:
•You’ll need to sign up for the bundle via Disney+ (not Hulu)
•You’ll need to use the same email address associated with your Hulu account
•You’ll have new Disney+ and ESPN+ accounts along with your existing Hulu account
•You will continue to be billed separately for your Hulu subscription
•As long as you keep your eligible existing Hulu account, Disney will give you a credit towards your Disney bundle subscription in the amount of $5.99/month — the value of the Hulu (ad-supported) plan included in the Disney bundle (however, you’ll keep the Hulu plan you have)

Use my brother's ad-free hulu. My family will likely use my family's Disney+ subscription I just bought (signed up for a year, $69.99)

I pay for:

AT&T Tv Now: $60/month (just got the notification price is going to this. I'm pissed, and would cancel, but I'm still grandfathered in from a promo DTVNow offer, and getting HBO included for only $5 extra a month).
Netflix: $18/month
Amazon Prime: $129 a year ($10.75/month)
Disney+: $5.83/month
Apple TV+: $4.99/month (I have a free year though because I got a new iPhone this year).

Total = ~$100/month. Maybe a bit less because Prime has other benefits I pay for other than just video. This doesn't include my internet bill. I'm about where I was bill-wise per month before I cut the cable cord. Very interested in where these streaming wars will take consumers. I doubt I'll sign up for HBO max, but of course, we'll see.

Do you use Netflix? I found Hulu to be a pretty clean substitute in the end.

I got an email from Verizon saying Disney+ is free if you have an unlimited data plan. Didn’t read the T&C, so there may be a catch, YMMV, etc.

I was just doing that math swimmer.

Sling - 45
Hulu - 11.99
Netflix - 12.99 (how are you paying 18?)
HBO Now - 14.99
Disney+ - 6
Total 90.97

Since Disney includes ESPN, I think I'm getting rid of Sling. I'm basically paying $45 for All In with Chris Hayes at this point. I might miss some MLB playoff games on FSN but I can deal with that. I think I'm going to cancel HBO too. I only watch John Oliver anymore.

I have Prime for "free" shipping, I rarely watch anything on there.
