Throughout the last couple of weeks, I have re-acquired my ad-free Hulu with the new bundle that also has Disney+ and ESPN+.
One aspect of my life that has changed over the last year is how much I value my time. I work a lot and try to get things done as quickly and efficiently as possible so I can enjoy myself later on in the day.
I did have the previous Disney+ bundle that contained ads with the Hulu subscription, which I was fine with initially. However, something changed this spring and I hated seeing the ads. It wasn’t anything against them, I am very fond of marketing and think Hulu is a great place to advertise. It’s just that when I think about how much time is wasted watching an ad, I think about what I could have done with those extra 5-10 minutes in my day where I could have really benefitted or done something else with that time.
This is why when the time was right, I signed up for the $18.99 a month Disney+ bundle with ad-free Hulu on it, and ESPN+. It has everything I want at a price I would say is fairly reasonable.
My favorite feature of this subscription is obviously not having to watch ads. Again, I love talking about marketing and advertising with my friends, and think Hulu is a great platform to advertise on, but for me, since I can afford it, I’m going to say if I can avoid it, I’d rather not watch them.
Another notable feature of the subscription is that I can download episodes of my favorite TV shows and movies for offline viewing. I did this a couple of times before I switched to the $12.99 a month Disney+ bundle last year. It’s quite useful and will come in handy if I have to travel in a car where I am not the driver or I’m on an airplane.
I’d say in 2020 that the ad-free version of Hulu, whether it’s with the Disney+ bundle or just through Hulu itself, is a great way to save time, not watch ads and watch content offline too.
The Disney+ bundle with ad-free Hulu costs $18.99 a month. You’ll have to sign up through Hulu to get this bundle. The standalone ad-free version of Hulu costs $11.99 a month, and can be subscribed to through Apple with in-app purchases.
Hulu is available on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV and Mac.
