Disney and Verizon have expanded their partnership and the new distribution deal means that some Verizon customers are now eligible for FREE Disney streaming services! The bundle includes Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+, giving qualified unlimited plan Verizon customers access to thousands of different television shows, movies, and live sports.
This goes beyond what we initially reported in October 2019, when Disney and Verizon’s initial deal offered a free year of the Disney+ streaming platform to FiOs internet clients and both new and existing 4G LTE and 5G unlimited wireless customers.
According to the Press Release:
Beginning August 20, Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+1 will be included in select Mix & Match Unlimited wireless plans.
Disney+ is included in the “Start Unlimited”, “Play More Unlimited” and “Do More Unlimited” plans which range in price from $35 to $55 a month. Disney+ costs $6.99 per month as a stand-alone service.
The least expensive “Start Unlimited” tier includes 6 months of Disney+ while the next 2 tiers include the full bundle of Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ for the length of your Verizon service. The Disney+ bundle currently costs $12.99 per month.
It is worth noting that FiOS pay-TV packages were not included in the original Verizon + Disney promotion or this new, expanded version.
“We led the industry by giving customers Disney+ on us. Now we’re adding The Disney Bundle, which includes Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+, for more entertainment choices that appeal to a variety of interests. We can’t wait to see what customers choose to suit their needs.”
Disney EVP of Platform Distribution Sean Breen shared in a press release:
“The addition of The Disney Bundle to our agreement with Verizon reinforces our commitment to providing their subscribers with access to high-quality entertainment from Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+. We are always looking for the most advantageous ways for consumers to experience our content and we are pleased to work with Verizon so that they can provide their customers with these appealing new offers.”
