Hulu adds Starz to its premium add-ons

“Following news of Hulu’s plans to move towards skinnier bundles, including those consisting of premium add-ons, the streaming service this morning announced the addition of Starz to its service. The Starz premium add-on will be available across all tiers of Hulu’s service, including its Limited Commercials and No Commercials plans, as well as its Live TV service.

It costs an extra $8.99 per month – the same price it sells for on rival services, like Amazon’s Prime Video Channels, for example.

This is the fourth premium add-on to come to Hulu, and the most affordable, following HBO, Showtime, and Cinemax, which cost $14.99/month, $10.99/month, and $9.99/month, respectively. Hulu, so far, has been surprisingly slow to roll out a customizable set of add-on subscriptions for those who want access to premium entertainment or sports programming.

Meanwhile, rival live TV service YouTube TV offers the NBA League Pass, Fox Soccer Plus, Curiosity Stream, Showtime, Starz, AMC Premiere, Shudder, and Sundance Now. Sling TV breaks up its extras into bundles customers can pick and choose from, and AT&T’s DirecTV Now offers programming tiers with optional add-ons, too……………………………….”

“Disney’s first major move in the streaming wars comes with a super-sized punch.

Announced Wednesday, Avengers: Endgame will be available to stream exclusively on Disney+ starting December 11 — a little less than a month after the new streaming platform debuts on November 12.

For dedicated Netflix, Prime Video, and Hulu subscribers with a love of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that may mean adding another service to their monthly entertainment bill this winter.

At the time of launch, Disney+ will carry an initial subscription price of $6.99 per month — as well as be available at a discounted offering of $69.99 per year.

While it was anticipated that Disney would corner the market on streaming Marvel films, the exclusive streaming of Avengers: Endgame will likely prove a massive draw for customers.

At present, Endgame has made $2.27 billion dollars at the worldwide box office, making it the second-highest grossing film of all-time, after Avatar — and continues to climb towards that #1 spot. Disney+ is primed to make the most of their winning film, lining up a number of Marvel spin-off series for streaming exclusivity as well.

Viewers looking to own Endgame (and possibly see it sooner) can turn to Amazon, where it is already available for pre-order. While no official digital release date for Endgame has been announced, it is anticipated to arrive sometime this summer as its predecessor, Avengers: Infinity War, shared a similar release date and hit the digital shelf on July 31, 2018. ”
