Disney and Hulu Annoucing Price Hikes Again, How Can Louisiana Save
And just when you thought things weren't going to go up any more news has come that Disney and Hulu will be raising their prices per month for their individual streaming services.
This comes on the heels of a rate hike that happened last year according to LifeHacker Newsletter.
And don't think you are going to do an end-run around all the rules by just sharing with 18 of your closest friends, because LifeHacker says Mashable reports the streaming services are doing what all the other streaming services are doing; they are cracking down on how many people can use your username and password.
Ugh! Another streaming service deciding to pass on the cost of doing business to customers is nothing new, and while I can personally live without Disney and Disney+, I don't want to live without Hulu.

I am a HUGE fan of the show Justified, the original one, and the new Justified: City Primeval. I watch Justified back a few years ago, but I want to watch it again from the beginning. I love Timothy Olyphant. Hulu also has other great shows.
So, here is the thing, if you don't bundle Disney+ and Hulu, you will pay more. Disney+ will go from $10.99 a month to $13.99 a month. Hulu "premium" (no commercials), by itself, will go from $14.99 to $17.99 a month. Last December, Disney went from $7.99 a month to $10.99, and now it'll go up again.
What to do? According to LifeHacker, on September 6, if you bundle Disney+ with Hulu then you get them both for $19.99 per month. Okay, that sounds more reasonable. I'm pretty siked that I think I can fit this in my budget because I can FINALLY watch season 2 of The Mandalorian. Yay, baby Yoda!
