The Disney+/Hulu bundle is for the ad supported Hulu. I hate ads. So unless they announce a no ads bundle it's $11.99 Hulu (no ads) + $6.99 Disney+ = $18.98.

"Belzebuth" (Shudder) was worth the watch. Mostly in Spanish with subtitles but above average horror. Got "Godzilla" UHD to watch tonight. Usually not real 4K because of the CGI.


Still waiting for the rental price of "Captive State" to come down. From what I've read it bombed at the BO so they must be trying to recoup with a $6 streaming rental price when everything else out that long is down to as little as $3 on weekend deals. It is or was at the box but only on DVD.

Apple TV+ finally gets its price: $4.99

Quote:
Apple TV+ will launch on Nov. 1 at a cost of $4.99 per month. “The price of a single
movie rental,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said on stage. “This is crazy!”

The low price clearly aims to undercut Netflix and Disney’s forthcoming Disney+
service, and shares of Netflix and Disney both dropped on the news.

I'd say still overpriced given that its just a handful of original programs with no catalog whatsoever.


Disney and Netflix stock dropping is laughable considering this is not even close to being a replacement for either one.

Pretty impressive lineup for its launch. Love seeing the Spider-Man series from both '81 and '94 as well as the Disney afternoon cartoons, Chip n Dale: Rescue Rangers and the original Duck Tales.

Every Disney movie, TV show available day one on Disney+

I read in Australia we won’t get all of the tv shows and movies some are still licensed to Stan.

That list is not going to be the same for the US. For one thing I see they list Black Panther, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Avengers:Infinity War all of which are currently on Netflix. The Netherlands obviously has different distribution contracts.

Am I missing something or is pre-ordering not as cost affective as the Disney+ Hulu ESPN+ bundle?

Pre-ordering Disney+ ($6.99/mo. regular price) discounted $40 for 3 years = $4.72/mo. (saving $3.37/mo. if you include the $40).
All 3 services alone costs $17.97/mo. Bundle of all 3 will be $12.99/mo. (saving $4.98/mo.)
Prices exclude taxes.

Currently I already have Hulu, so to spend the extra $2 to have ESPN+ seems like a good idea.
For someone that can front the money and doesn't want or need Hulu or ESPN+, sure the 3 year pre-order can work out for them.

HTPC/Gaming PC (i7 860, SSD, GTX 660 Ti+), Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii-U, Wii, N64, NES

I threw caution to the wind and signed up. I'll pay the $6.99/month not to be locked into a 3 year contract. But I'm goofy like that.
