Is Hulu included in Disney’s new Spectrum bundle?
Disney and Charter Communication settled their dispute by announcing a bundle between the two entertainment providers. The companies were previously at odds over carriage fees, the fees cable providers pay companies to carry their channels, according to CBS News.
This led to Disney-owned channels, including ESPN, being temporarily unavailable on Spectrum’s cable packages during the U.S. Open and the return of college football.
Spectrum customers can now get the ad-supported version of Disney+ with the Spectrum TV Select package. Customers with the TV Select Plus package will get Disney+ and ESPN+, according to a press release from Disney. A bundle including Hulu has not been announced.
