Endeavouring to appeal to the masses, Disney Plus has introduced more and more new titles that branch out from its otherwise tame material. Even so, unless you’re a huge Disney fan, or have younger members of the family, there may be little to attract you to the streaming service. Until now, with US customers able to sign up to the Disney Plus bundle, throwing sports coverage and more mature titles into the mix.

What can I watch on Disney Plus?
Want to step into the realms of fairytales, magic, and childhood nostalgia? Disney Plus has got you covered with its library of Disney classics – and then some. On top of the aforementioned Disney and Pixar throwback titles, Disney Plus is home to many a Disney Plus Original, as well as the exclusive home to Broadway hit, Hamilton. Not forgetting it’s your one-stop-shop for everything Marvel, Star Wars, and of course The Simpsons.
With all 31 seasons of The Simpsons, you’ll also be able to watch the Marvel movies in order, as well as being the place to watch Loki and other new Marvel spin-offs. The same goes for Star Wars, the only place you can binge The Mandalorian online.
You’ll also find documentaries from National Geographic, including The World According to Jeff Goldburg and Apollo: Missions to the Moon.
Then there’s Disney Plus Premier Access, which gives you front seats to new Disney releases, giving you the ability to be one of the first to watch Black Widow. If that isn’t enough of an incentive, some new films from Walt Disney Pictures are going straight to Disney Plus without any additional cost. You could watch Luca, Pixar’s latest feature length film, without paying the Premier Access fee when it dropped on the platform in June 2021.
Young or old, it’s fair to say nothing quite hits the heart like a film straight out of the Disney and Pixar machine, making this the platform for avid Disney fans in particular.
Disney Plus bundle: what can I watch on ESPN Plus?
If there’s one glaring aspect of entertainment missing from Disney Plus’ roster, the answer is probably sport. Thankfully, with the Disney Plus bundle, the inclusion of ESPN Plus more than caters for sporting spectators.
As well as hosting live sports including UFC live streams (with access to exclusive PPV events, too), NHL, college basketball, and the Emirates FA Cup, ESPN Plus also has its very own original TV shows and movies exclusive to the streaming platform. From Peyton’s Places with Peyton Manning, to Stephen A’s World with Stephen A. Smith, these ESPN+ Originals give insight into key sport personalities and their craft to their chosen game.
ESPN Plus subscribers will also get complete access to the 30 for 30 library, a catalog of content that is known to have revolutionised sport documentaries. This includes the likes of The Infinte Race, all about an indigenous community in Mexico called the Tarahumara who kickstarted the barefoot ultrarunning craze, now devastated by drug cartels. Be Water follows Bruce Lee’s struggle with identity, split between Hong Kong and Hollywood as a martial artist and actor.
If you live and breathe sports – especially those showcased on ESPN Plus, – this is definitely one worth signing up to. Better still, with the Disney Plus bundle, you can enjoy three streaming platforms at a reduced rate, with entertainment for all the family to enjoy.
What can I watch on Hulu with the Disney Plus upgrade?
TV shows and movies might be sorted for the younger viewers in your household with Disney Plus, but what about when you want to settle down and binge something with a higher age rating that feels a bit more… you know… adult. Hulu has got you covered with a ton of fantastic, compelling titles.
From Little Fires Everywhere starring Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington, putting class, race and privilege under a microscope, to the gritty, eye-opening adaption of Margaret Atwood’s of The Handmaid’s Tale, with all four seasons available to stream now.
There is even titles for kids if you’re having a non-Disney day. Included in the Disney Plus bundle as a part of the $13.99 package, you can also get Hulu with no ads for $19.99 in the package, too – still excellent value for money when you think about how much these three streaming services would cost bought separately.
