Hulu on Disney+ One-App: Is the Disney Bundle a Good Deal?
"Can I watch Disney Plus and Hulu content in the same app?"
The answer is yes! The beta version of Hulu on Disney Plus went live in the U.S. on December 6 and the official version will be released in March 2024. Disney Bundle subscribers may notice a new added Hulu tile on the main screen of the Disney Plus app. They are able to watch the vast majority of Hulu videos and movies, such as Only Murders in the Building and The Bear, directly on the Disney Plus app without having to switch between the two apps.
A Disney spokesperson expressed hope that the change would incentivize more users to upgrade to the Disney Bundle. What is Disney Bundle? How to upgrade? Keep reading the following article to find the answer!

Disney Plus Subscription
>> Disney Plus Basic
You can access Disney Plus' entire library for just $7.99 a month, with no restrictions on what can be accessed specifically for ad-supported subscribers. But you'll see ads before the video starts and throughout its playback, roughly up to a total of four minutes of ads per hour. You are allowed to stream Disney Plus in Full HD, and even 4K Ultra HD, HDR10, Dolby Vision and Expanded Aspect Ratio with IMAX Enhanced once your device supports it. The unfortunate aspect of this subscription is that downloading are not supported.
>> Disney Plus Premium
If you want to download and watch the titles on the go, Premium plan is the preferred one which costs $13.99/month ($139.99/year). In addition, you will have access to the Share Play feature and Dolby Atmos audio, which are unavailable to Basic plan subscribers. As with Basic users, you can create up to seven profiles per account and watch on up to four devices at once.

>> Hulu With Ads
For those who do not care about being bothered by ads and do not require the download feature, Hulu With Ads may be the best option. Only $7.99 a month ($79.99/year) provides full access to Hulu's streaming library. You are eligible for watching high definition videos including 1080p, 4K, HDR, HDR10, HDR10+, and Dolby Vision. There are also stereo 2.0 and surround 5.1 options available.
>> Hulu No Ads
If you want to binge-watch more Hulu content without advertisement and download for offline viewing, you'll need to pay $17.99 per month individually (no annual version). The remaining features are also the same as the With Ads plan, including allowing two devices to watch online at the same time, creating up to six profiles as well as the Watch Party feature.
The Disney Bundle offers plans that save you a significant amount of money compared to ordering each service individually. Please note that Disney Bundle does not offer a free trial.

Although some of the subscription prices for the Disney Bundle have gone up from what they were before, it doesn't stop it from remaining the most popular bundle. In addition to many adult-oriented web series, Hulu also complements popular content in crime and thrillers, romance, and horror that are underserved on Disney+. If you want to subscribe to a service that includes Hulu and Disney Plus, subscribing to a bundle is a cheaper way to do it. Even with the cheapest Disney Bundle subscription, you can access the entire library of Disney Plus and Hulu library at an even better price.
Whichever way you purchase the Disney Bundle, you will need to meet the following 2 requirements:
- be a resident of the U.S. or certain U.S. territories.
- be 18 years of age or older.

Alternative Method to Save Videos from Disney Plus and Hulu
This article provides an effective way for Disney Plus Basic and/or Hulu With Ads subscribers to download their favourite TV series and films to watch offline. Download the program called VidiCable on your Windows or Mac computer, log in to your account, and download ad-free HD videos. If you are a Hulu user with Max Add-on, it is also available for you to use VidiCable to download Max programming, as VidiCable supports downloading videos from up to 50 sites.
How to Use VidiCable to Download Movies and TV Series?
Step 1 After installation, launch the program on your computer desktop. If you open the VidiCable for the first time, you need to select the video site you want to download.
Step 2 Taking the Hulu US site as an example, you need to log in to your account to access the Hulu library directly on VidiCable.
Step 3 Open the "Settings" window and select the output settings for your downloads. For example, you can set the video to the output format of MKV and select High Definition to save it, and so on.
Step 4 One of the best things about using VidiCable is that it brings all the platforms together into one program. And you can browse all the content of the streaming platform directly within the program. There is no need to download a separate app or visit the official website to find videos.
Step 5 If you want to see more detailed settings for the selected video, please access the "Advanced Download" window. You can see the specific video quality codecs, audio codecs and subtitle codecs of each video and then save them according to your needs.
Step 6 Download Disney Plus videos
Then, you can find your output videos in the "Library" tab. All the videos are already ad-free by default during the download process. And you can flip through the videos to watch them whenever you want, and even if the platform removes them, they'll be on your device forever.
Currently, the Disney Plus app deeply integrates content from Disney+ and Hulu, making it more convenient for users to experience both services at the same time in one app. If you want to use both platforms, you might as well subscribe to the Disney Bundle. In addition, if you want to download movies from Disney Plus and Hulu, try VidiCable.
