Re: Hulu -- News and Notable New additions

I'm just waiting to see if there's another .99 or 1.99 black friday deal.

I'm thinking maybe not if they really want to push people to the bundles.

I don’t mind Disney + and Hulu merging into one app. Other territories have already done it.

I love having ESPN+ and Hulu already merged together. I don't really care for the ESPN app and prefer Hulu. It will be nice to have all three in one app.

Whatever they do, they need to improve/fix the buffering for live sports. Even when Iím on wired internet (250 mbps), the app will buffer and/or crash.

When watching the On Demand, DVR, or Hulu library, the app is 100% fine.

I wonder what that means for those of us with the Verizon bundle which has D+ with no ads and Hulu w/ ads?

I barely use Hulu because of all the ads. They used to show movies without ads. Just made you watch 3 minutes of ads before a movie. Now they scatter them throughout the movie. Fuck that.

Considering all the issues I have with the Hulu app on Apple TV device, I really hope the new app is better. The app locks up all the time and even restarting the device doesn't always fix it.

Re: Hulu -- News and Notable New additions

My $1.99/mo "Hulu with Ads" Black Friday special is ending in a couple weeks. I am not cancelling my account, because I have the grandfathered $2.99/mo "Disney+ No Ads" add-on.

What I do have is an American Express Blue Cash Everyday card, and it has an activated benefit, where it will give you a $7 credit back per month if you charge at least $9.99 through Disney+, Hulu, or ESPN+. (This also works with AMEX Blue Cash Preferred card and Platinum card (Platinum benefit is $20/mo with no minimum spend required)).

So my cost now is "Hulu with Ads" $7.99/mo, plus "Disney+ No Ads" Add-on $2.99, minus $7 statement credit.

Yep was watching college football on Hulu yesterday and the audio kept cutting in and out. Switched to the regular ESPN app and everything was fine.

Iím in pretty much the same situation. My $1.99 Hulu expires tomorrow, but I donít really need Hulu but love the grandfathered $2.99 no ads Disney+.

Are you sure that what we have after the price increase qualifies for the Amex $7 off? The fine print specifies itís for any bundle. Not sure what we have is technically a bundle.

I was going to switch to the cheapest bundle, $15, to get the $7 off and lower my soon to be $11.47 total, but would hate to add ads to Disney.

Yes, if you read the fine print on the benefit it says: ""Qualifying purchases” include Disney Bundle monthly subscription purchases of at least $9.99 a month (excluding taxes) and any other monthly or annual subscription purchase or add-ons of at least $9.99 (excluding taxes) in any one calendar month purchased at U.S. websites DisneyPlus.com, Hulu.com or Plus.espn.com made on your enrolled Card Account."

So, basically, each month that you have a charge of $9.99 or more from Hulu.com, DisneyPlus.com, or Plus.espn.com, you'll get the $7 statement credit, regardless of what your plan is.

If you're looking for something to watch, check out To Catch A Killer. It's a pretty good throwback to those 90's "FBI hunting a serial killer" movies.

Re: Hulu -- News and Notable New additions

99c per month Hulu with ads is back for eligible accounts (usually you need to have an account that hasn't been subscribed for like a month or so)

Re: Hulu -- News and Notable New additions

I can't find a way to "upgrade" my account to just the Disney no ads Hulu no ads 19.99 a month. Is the only way to let it expire and then resubscribe on the Disney+ side (which does have that option)? Or am I missing something.

That's exactly it, it appears. The "Disney Bundle Duo Premium" is only available through disneyplus.com:

Re: Hulu -- News and Notable New additions

That seems really short sighted since now I have to wait until my current Hulu plan expires before resubbing to Disney Plus.
