d+ with ads is $8/m, no ad's $14
then they start bundleing hulu & espn

I am shocked they didn't email you, I was grandfathered in on the $70 annual and I got an email a month ago that they were increasing it.  I cancelled, because they are not giving me enough material.  I'll let the shows build and then just buy one month to binge.

No email from Disney plus re the increase.

Good point about the quantity of material on D±

I usually get an annual plan for the discount. But if you know how to binge properly, it makes more sense to go monthly. Do each service a month at time to binge your programs; however, you won't be able to join the online community for your favorite series.

Yeah, that's how they got me - I saw the email a month ago about the price increase and didn't actually read it bc I'd already heard about the increase on the news. I didn't realize the notice that my renewal was coming up was buried in there too.

I did the math and it's probably still the best deal for me for one more year, but I HATE Disney so much right now. Just disappointing and sneaky at every turn.

It's cheaper to sign up for Hulu and then add Disney to your Hulu plan.  I've been paying $4.99/month for Hulu+Disney for the last year.  I got the email this month saying that will go up to $7.99/month.

Hulu isn't worth it to me

I was just charged for Paramount+ -- they did notify me they were going to change me
They did allow a refund of the annual fee

I'll be switching to monthy soon.  Anyone heard of any deals for Paramount?

Get Paramount+ Essential for $1.99/month or Paramount+ with SHOWTIME for $3.99/month for 3 months. Limited-time offer ends 12/3/23. New and former subscribers only.

I did my yearly cancellation of Hulu in preparation for this.  I'll pick the $2.99 bundle with Disney+ for the next year.

Apple tv first 3 months free with if you subscribe via your target account

I've been on a sequential stream of Apple TV trials for a couple of years.  There are so many of them.  I have 3 different pending offers on devices currently.  Another one expired last week because I had no use for it.

They are still offering free trial codes monthly.  The last one I know about is southpark but that expired yesterday.  Either there is already another code out or there will be one shortly.

I've been thinking about subscribing to Paramount+. What shows and movies make it worth subscribing?

"Evil" is great, and Yellowjackets (if you get the plan that comes with Showtime).

You can almost always find a code for a free month of P+ though - and usually, when you go to cancel, they'll offer you another free month
