Disney Bundle essential for soccer fans and families

Disney Bundle

The Disney Bundle offers seemingly unrivaled value. And, in a market as deep as soccer streaming, the bundle now seems essential.

In present times, streaming services dominate the soccer market. Consequentially, that often means purchasing multiple subscriptions to quench our thirsts for European soccer.

One of those programs comes through ESPN+, which offers an array of leagues for U.S. viewers.

However, ESPN, part of the Disney family of services, is now part of a bundle to save money for the whole family.

The Disney Bundle provides access to three paid-services: Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+. The great thing about the Disney Bundle is the amount of soccer provided in its coverage. ESPN’s emergence as a premier soccer carrier in the United States makes its acquisition almost essential.

The bundle comes in at a base price of $13.99. Admittedly, it is roughly double the price as ESPN+ on its own. Still, the value involved in the $13.99 price tag is hard to match. And depending on what type of Netflix account you have, getting three services through the Disney Bundle (Hulu, Disney+ and ESPN+) can be more enticing than what Netflix offers.

Disney+ provides all the classic programs Disney produces. Next, Hulu allows subscribers to watch and stream thousands of TV shows or movies. Finally, ESPN+ provides live coverage of domestic and international sports. For many, the Disney Bundle is essential for soccer fans, both casual and passionate. The programs through Disney+ and Hulu only make the deal that much sweeter.

Disney Bundle includes ESPN+, a must-have for soccer

Passionate fans understand how hard it is to keep track of what soccer games are on. An in-depth schedule of each day’s games helps to keep track of what is on. But, even then, some games require specialized subscriptions.

ESPN+’s commitment to soccer is now an essential piece of a soccer fan’s subscriptions. The amount of content pushed out or streamed by ESPN+ includes leagues and competitions from around the world.

The most notable leagues aired exclusively on ESPN+ include LaLiga, Bundesliga, Championship and MLS. Also, tournaments such as the International Champions Cup and the FA Cup use ESPN+ as their homes in the United States.

With soccer’s growth in the United States combined with the development of streaming services, ESPN brought soccer to the front of their plans. Now, we see soccer games on broadcast television through ESPN, with all games appearing on ESPN+.

Beyond live streams of games, ESPN also uses their subscription-service to air their studio shows. Among these shows, ESPN FC whips around with analysis of major news and events from around the world.

Another added bonus with ESPN+ is how it has more than soccer. Yes, we would be hard-pressed to find a sport better than the beautiful game. Still, ESPN+ has exclusive coverage of the NHL, PGA Tour, Tennis grand slams and UFC and Boxing fights.

Access to additional content

If you are solely a fan of sports, then it seems impractical to get the Disney Bundle. However, this is not the case.

The wealth of other content available in the bundle makes it too easy to subscribe to. And, what is even better, is the money saved.

Broken down, ESPN+ is available on its own for $6.99. Next, Hulu’s base price is set at $5.99. Then, Disney+ comes in at $7.99. In total, if one wanted all three of these services, it would be $20.97 for the base rate. That is an easy $7 saved per month.

Hulu

To start, Hulu provides content in the form of TV shows and movies. The provider also creates original content not seen anywhere else on the market.

Hulu, both in the Disney Bundle and on its own, can be upgraded to also carry live TV. Yet, this comes at a significant jump in price. It is over $50 to include the live TV portion of what Hulu provides. That will provide access to news, live shows and some other sports not on ESPN+.

For the sports fans, ESPN+ has their games appear on the Hulu homepage. This helpful integration allows you to easily track what events are happening when you decide what to watch.

Disney+

The Disney Bundle obviously includes Disney+, the additional service that features movies and shows from the media mogul. Star Wars, the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Disney’s array of classic movies dominate Disney+.

As is the case with Hulu and other content providers, Disney+ concentrates much of its distribution around exclusive shows and movies. Shows like Loki or the Mandalorian exist only on Disney+. Also, movies including Hamilton are available through the service.

For $13.99/month, it is hard argue the value available in the Disney Bundle. Even if you do not see yourself as a major TV-show-watcher or a movie fan, the reduced costs in the bundle make the opportunity low-risk.

    @Hans They still have in their website that Peacock offers early access to Jimmy Fallon? Is it true? Absolutely not, but it is hard for people to tell because they also don’t show original air date. “NBC couldn’t arrange a pissing contest in a brewery.” Very funny and completely agree. They shouldn’t be allowed to broadcast even my office Olympics.

    My go to site for soccer streaming content is WST and without having the streaming information here the ability to find where to watch the games would be difficult.
    I also love Rugby and nothing equivalent exists anywhere like it, so I frequent a Reddit forum but it is not well organized and inside info is often missing. So thanks and well done for an excellent job.

    “A typical example for me is Peacock. Because it has nothing to offer besides the EPL”
    Let me add to this something I just discovered this morning. On Peacock there was exclusively streamed the movie “Boss Baby: Family Business” FOR 60 DAYS ONLY. This started July 2nd and is no longer available. That is very poor but not unexpected from them, did I miss out on it NO. The Internez at is best. NBC couldn’t arrange a pissing contest in a brewery.

    @Christopher Harris. Don’t worry about this Yespage schmuck. With the extra content that the streaming services have it is worth mentioning for sure. The ESPN+ NHL deal I think could have big trickle down effect on the soccer coverage and viewership too. In terms of money spent and allocation by ESPN. Also allow viewers like me to keep ESPN+ partially because of the NHL. But I happen to enjoy and watch the Bundesliga content on there too. And right now if I had a 2-3 hour block to watch sports. I’ll take a Bundesliga match over an NHL game by the way.

    @Chris The content of the website is great. It is certainly my favorite soccer-related content to read. And is my favorite and most relevant podcast, surpassing Guardian’s Football Weekly, Gab and Jules, Talking Fussball and Posse de Bola.
    The user comment section is also very good. With some exceptions, there are very knowledgeable and intelligent people commenting on the website, which is a huge plus. I usually can’t have this kind of conversation without calling friends abroad.
    In relationship to the bundle, the other non-soccer content is also very relevant from a customer perspective. Soccer does not live in a vacuum and all the other content plays a huge role and needs consideration.
    A typical example for me is Peacock. Because it has nothing to offer besides the EPL and not all games are live, I will default to ESPN (Bundesliga) and Paramount (UCL, Brasileirao, and Serie A) instead.

    So shilling general streaming providers now? ESPN+ is for soccer, the other stuff comes extra and has zero soccer involvement. Bad enough WST needed a rebrand to WSCT to properly indicate that this site is virtually all about soccer coverage now, not soccer.

      We’ve been writing more original stories about soccer the past two weeks than we have in the past two months. We’ve interviewed former U.S. internationals Taylor Twellman and Bruce Murray. In the last fortnight, we’ve also written articles and published a podcast about the transfer window, as well as the unique relationship between Athletic Club and the Basque region, as well as Arsenal’s poor start to the season, plus the financial hit Chelsea made when they signed Lukaku for the second time. As well as many other articles.

      But you want to focus on one article that talks about The Disney Bundle, to make soccer fans know it exists?

      Overall, our site is unique in that we’re the only one that features articles about how and where to watch games on television and online, as well as still writing pieces about the sport itself too. That doesn’t change, and it’s been that way for at least a few years now.

    This is what I am subscribed to. I have a policy to only pay for one streaming service at a time. So this is the one I use. Enjoy seeing Bundesliga, Eredivise, EFL/FA Cup, and even Belgium. NHL too once that gets going. Not too interested in college sports or UFC. Not a La Liga fan though.

    It’s a beautiful thing 3 services for the same price as Netflix’s one. Simply beautiful. Disney Plus is amazing and let’s you relieve the old and new of your childhood. Hulu is okay with some shows like Handmaid’s tales and Malcom in the Middle. I don’t know if they have Family Guy anymore but they need to add that. The soccer/football fans ESPN Plus. La Liga, Bundesliga, MLS, and FIFA Qualifiers. To get ESPN and local broadcasting your going to need your tv subscription username and password. Fantastic product for the price. A must have for the entire family. #ESPN+, #Disney+, #Hulu
