Want to stream She-Hulk: Attorney at Law or Andor? Then you might want to quickly sign up for a Disney Plus subscription. On Thursday, December 8th, Disney will debut a new ad-supported tier that’ll cost $7.99 / month. The existing ad-free plan, meanwhile, will increase from $7.99 / month to $10.99.
However, the good news is that you can avoid the price hike so long as you subscribe to an annual ad-free plan before the end of today, December 7th. Even better, you don’t need to be a new subscriber, either. Right now, in fact, both new and returning customers can still subscribe to a year of Disney Plus for $79.99 before it increases to $109.99 on Thursday.
In case you’re wondering, the ad-free annual plan offers a few extra perks, like the ability to download content so you can stream Pixar movies or Star Wars and Marvel shows without an internet connection. That could come in handy when, say, you need to keep the kids (or yourself) entertained during the long car ride back home to visit family this holiday season.
No worries if purchasing an annual plan outright is out of your budget, though. By the look of things, the ads in the $7.99 / month plan may not be as distracting as they sound. Earlier this year, former Disney CEO Bob Chapek said the ad-supported tier will have a “lower ad load and frequency to ensure a great experience for viewers.” Plus, ads won’t run on kids profiles, either, so you won’t need to upgrade to the ad-free monthly plan if you’re subscribing to Disney Plus just for your children.
