It’s likely that the changes are being made ahead of the Disney+ launch on November 12 and the Hulu, Disney+, and ESPN+ bundle deal.
Here’s the summary of what you’ll find in the updated terms, as shared by Hulu in the email.
- We make some updates in anticipation of new products and services that will be available in the coming weeks.
- We share important details about services that are available through third-parties, including information on access, billing, and cancellation.
- We describe a few differences across service offerings, including age limitations for purchases and the features available to you.
- We provide a refresher on how billing works, including clarifying payment method authorization, promotional offers, billing holds, and pausing your subscription.
- We describe some changes to our dispute resolution process in the unlikely event an issue arises, including the process and rules for bringing a claim, payment of arbitration fees and costs, and limitations on liability.
There is likely a second reason for these changes. Disney now has full control over Hulu. It is very likely Disney wants to put their stamp on Hulu’s terms and conditions. Though these changes most likely maiend at getting Hulu ready to start selling Disney+, ESPN+, and for the already announced bundle plan that will include all three.
