Prices are going up for Hulu + Live TV subscriptions, but it's not all bad

Disney really wants people on its Disney Bundle.

What you need to know

  • Hulu is raising the price of its Live TV subscriptions by $5 per month.
  • The streaming service will now include Disney+ and ESPN+ with the service at no extra cost, as a consolation.
  • The change will go into effect on December 21.

Hulu is raising its prices again, but this time the increase affects subscribers of its Live TV service. As noted by Variety, the company will increase the cost of its Live TV subscription options by $5 per month.

This will bring the price to $70 per month, which puts it above rival services like YouTube TV. However, the streaming service does offer 4K at no extra cost on many of the best streaming devices. Additionally, Disney is apparently sweetening the pot by bundling Disney+ and ESPN+ at no extra cost as a consolation for the price increase.

That does sound like a nice consolation, considering that the bundle normally costs $73 per month, and both Disney+ and ESPN+ cost $8 and $7, respectively. For customers on the ad-free version of Hulu + Live TV, the price will increase to $76 per month, which is slightly cheaper than the $79 cost of the Disney Bundle price.

However, this isn't the first price increase that Hulu customers have faced as of late. On October 8, Hulu's lower-tier subscriptions went up by $1 as a way to move current and new customers towards the Disney Bundle.

Fur Hulu customers who are interested in Disney+ and/or ESPN+, we can walk you through how to switch from Disney+ to the Disney Bundle. However, if you're a current Live TV subscriber, you won't need to do anything when the change goes live, and it will happen automatically, so long as your email for the respective services is the same.

The new pricing will take effect on December 21, giving subscribers a month to brace for the change.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Google says attackers worked with ISPs to deploy Hermit spyware on Android and iOS

Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge A sophisticated spyware campaign is getting the help of internet service providers (ISPs) to trick users into downloading malicious apps, according to research published by Google’s Threat Analysis Group (TAG) (via TechCrunch ). This corroborates earlier findings from security research group Lookout , which has linked the spyware, dubbed Hermit, to Italian spyware vendor RCS Labs. Lookout says RCS Labs is in the same line of work as NSO Group — the infamous surveillance-for-hire company behind the Pegasus spyware — and peddles commercial spyware to various government agencies. Researchers at Lookout believe Hermit has already been deployed by the government of Kazakhstan and Italian authorities. In line with these findings, Google has identified victims in both countries and says it will notify affected users. As described in Lookout’s report, Hermit is a modular threat that can download additional capabilities from a command and control (

Duke Nukem is getting a movie from some guys who could actually pull it off

The one true Duke. I wouldn’t be surprised if you have no idea who Duke Nukem even is — that’s how hard the classic video game franchise cratered a decade ago. Today, the character is mostly known as a punchline for video game vaporware jokes, about how Duke Nukem Forever spent 14 years in development hell only to become a huge flop. And yet for years now, Duke’s corporate owners have been whispering that a movie is coming, culminating in The Hollywood Reporter ’s story today : Legendary Entertainment has tapped Cobra Kai creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg to actually produce a feature film. I don’t quite know how to react! As a gamer who actually quite liked Duke Nukem , Duke Nukem II and Duke Nukem 3D, I absolutely agree that this movie should never be made because Duke Nukem has no depth and no story and was always designed to be a caricature .
