Breaking it down: why Disney is hiking prices for Hulu and Disney+

If you like streaming Disney shows and movies without commercials, be prepared to pay more for the privilege. On Thursday, the Mickey Mouse company announced it will soon raise prices across its three streaming services — Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+. This means that customers who pay extra to enjoy ad-free interruptions will have to shell out a little more cash for that privilege. The new prices will primarily impact streamers who watch the ad-free version of Hulu and Disney+, which will increase by $3. Cord-cutters who watch live TV channels on Hulu will also see the cost of service go up, as will fans of sports who watch games on ESPN+.
