One of the biggest selling points for Verizon Wireless has been the ability to get Disney+ or the Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ bundles free with your Verizon Wireless plan. Now according to a report from The Mobile Report, Verizon will stop offering Disney+ with its 5G plans and instead provide a discounted Disney+ plan you can add to your Verizon service plans.
These new plans will reportedly be called “myPlan” and be offered as “Unlimited Welcome” along with “Unlimited Plus” plans. With these plans, you will be able to add additional services for $10 a month.
So now you can decide if you want Walmart+ membership, Disney Bundle, 100 GB Mobile Hotspot, Apple One, and more added to your plans for $10 each. This is a discount over the standard Disney Bundle price but not as good as the free offer you had in the past.
Overall, these new plans are slightly cheaper but also come with 500 GB of uncapped data speeds. After you use up 500 GB of data, your plan will be capped at 5 Mbps speeds.
If you already have a Verizon 5G plan with Disney+ or the Disney Bundle, you will get to keep it until you make a change. Sadly new customers are not going to get these offers.
Verizon will reportedly announce these plans on May 15th, and they will go on sale on May 18th.
This all comes as Verizon is reportedly looking to counter T-Mobile’s new plans by offering these new, slightly cheaper plans. The one big selling point here is the ability to have more flexibility in what you want to add to your Verizon plans. Not everyone wants Disney+.
Now, for example, you will be able to also get a monthly play credit you can use on Paramount+, Netflix, AMC+, HBO Max, and more as long as you are willing to subscribe through the Verizon Wireless’s billing system using +play.
We will have full coverage of these changes once Verizon officially announces them.
