Disney to Meld Disney+ and Hulu Into One App

Posted by in category: futurism

Long rumored but never confirmed, a new app that combines Disney+ and Hulu content is finally on the horizon. Disney CEO Bob Iger made the announcement during the company’s second-quarter earnings call and suggested the new app would be on the market by the end of 2023.

“I’m pleased to announce that we will soon begin offering a one app experience domestically that incorporates our Hulu content via Disney+, while we continue to offer Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+ as standalone options,” he said. “This is a logical progression of our [direct-to-consumer] offerings that will provide greater opportunities for advertisers, while giving bundle subscribers access to more robust and streamline content, resulting in greater audience engagement and ultimately leading to a more unified streaming experience. We will begin to roll out this one app offering by the end of the calendar year and we look forward to sharing more details in the future.”
