On December 8, Disney+ will be launching an ad-supported tier. Along with the new plan option, Disney will be making some changes across its slate of streaming services “giving viewers ultimate flexibility in choosing an option that suits their needs.”

When the ad-supported tier launches on December 8, Disney+ with commercials will cost $7.99 per month. The price of ad-free Disney+ will be $10.99. On October 10, Hulu without ads will increase by $2 per month, from $12.99 to $14.99 and Hulu with ads will go up by $1 per month from $6.99 to $7.99.
