If you love sports, but also binge watch The Handmaid’s Tale and The Mandalorian, you’ve definitely been paying a significant amount each month in subscription fees. And that doesn’t even include Netflix, HBO and Amazon Prime. Sadly, you can’t just flip on the TV these days and have all your favorite shows in one place. Oh, you’re paying for live TV in addition to streaming? Well, it’s time to consider paring down on stand-alone services — without having to say goodbye to your favorite TV shows.
Depending on your go-to platforms, you can save a bit of money by opting for various streaming bundle deals. Following the example above, instead of paying separately for ESPN+ Plus, Hulu and Disney+, the platforms teamed up to provide customers access to them all for one low monthly fee. On top of that, you might even score some new subscriber add-ons, free trials and other streaming deals by opting for a bundle over multiple standalone streaming services. If you pay for your subscription using an eligible cash-back credit card, you can earn an extra 3% to 6% back on select streaming services. Some issuers even offer a special incentive for Disney Bundle subscribers.
Not only will one payment lower the overall cost, but it’s also way more convenient to have a single bill. If you cut the cable cord only to find yourself juggling a bunch of separate streaming services, now is the time to see what bundle fits your personal programming schedule and let the savings flow.
The Best Streaming Bundle Deals
Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu
Bundle Price: starting at $12.99/month | Separate Services: Disney+: starting at $7.99/month, ESPN+: starting at $9.99/month, Hulu: starting at $7.99/month
When you compare the monthly cost of each service, the Disney+ Bundle is clearly the way to go for anyone who regularly watches Disney+, ESPN+ or Hulu content. You’ll save 37% with the budget-friendly Duo Basic plan (which only offers ad-supported Disney+ and Hulu), 49% on a Trio Basic plan (which features all three services with ads) and 44% per month on the nearly ad-free Trio Premium bundle. One thing to note is that only the ad-supported version of ESPN+ is included with this bundle. If you want an ad-free ESPN+ subscription, you’ll have to forego this bundle deal and purchase a standalone annual ESPN+ subscription.
No matter which option you choose, you won’t be penalized for not bundling sooner. According to the Disney+ FAQ page, if you have access to any of the three services, you can sign up for the Disney Bundle with the same email, and your monthly fee will be automatically adjusted to just $12.99 a month. We recommend evaluating what shows you value most while comparing streaming bundle offers. If you prefer one platform’s exclusive content more than the rest, it may be worth sticking with that service (and springing for a higher quality of life with an ad-free subscription). If you’re dead set on streaming Star Wars after the game, this might be a good deal for you. There’s no free trial or Hulu promo code available for this streaming bundle, so keep that in mind before inputting your credit card information.
Hulu and Max
Bundle Price: $23.98/month | Separate Services: Hulu: starting at $7.99/month, Max: starting at $9.99/month
If high costs and excessive ads are your main reasons for cutting the cord, the Hulu with Max bundle might not be worth your while. You need a Hulu base plan to purchase the Max add-on service, which costs an additional $15.99 per month.
Even with a pricier Hulu base plan like Hulu + Live TV, you won’t save any money by opting for the Hulu with Max bundle over two separate subscriptions.
Hulu and Spotify Premium for Students
Bundle Price: Free for one month, then $4.99/month | Separate Services: Hulu (ad-supported): $7.99/month, Spotify Premium Student: $4.99/month
Effectively waiving the cost of Hulu’s $7.99 ad-supported plan, college students save 72% with Spotify’s Premium for Students offer. Remember, non-students pay $9.99 per month for Spotify Premium. The basic Hulu plan is built into Spotify’s popular student plan, so you won’t save (or waste) any money if you choose not to use it.
Snagging both popular services for only $4.99 a month is a no-brainer for those who qualify, though the deal was much better when it included free SHOWTIME access. Still, new users enjoy a free one-month trial and have the option to cancel before the first bill arrives. Even if this offer only includes ad-supported Hulu, it’s still a decent entertainment deal for students who want to keep up with the latest music, TV shows and movies.
AMC, Shudder, IFC and Sundance
Bundle Price: $6.99/month | Separate Services: Shudder: starting at $4.75/month, IFC Films Unlimited: $5.99/month, Sundance Now: starting at $4.99/month, BBC America: starting at $4.99/month
Currently on sale for just $4.99/month, AMC+ is a bundled streaming service targeted towards prestige media connoisseurs and film buffs. Given the sheer mass of beloved franchises and movies stored within the AMC+ catalog, there is no reason to pay for Sundance Now, Shudder, IFC Films Unlimited and BBC America separately. This tremendous library includes hit series like The Walking Dead and Mad Men, as well as acclaimed films like Fight Club and Boyhood. You can also try it free for seven days.
