Verizon is making big changes to its unlimited data plans that include more perks for the same price.

Starting August 20, Verizon introduces “The Disney Bundle.” Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+ will be included in select plans. These services are available separately as a bundle for $12.99 per month.

The Disney Bundle will be included in the new Play More Unlimited and Get More Unlimited plans, according to a Verizon news release.

Verizon Wireless Adds New Perks to Some Unlimited Data Plans

Verizon plans featuring the new video streaming perk are not cheap. For a single line of service, Play More Unlimited is $80 a month and Get More Unlimited is $90 a month. Taxes and fees are not included in the price.

For four lines of service with auto pay, Play More Unlimited drops to $45 a month per line and Get More Unlimited is $55 a month per line.

Verizon’s cheapest unlimited plan, Start Unlimited, doesn’t include The Disney Bundle. However, the Start Unlimited and Do More Unlimited plans offer Disney+ for six months.

  • Start Unlimited: Disney+ for six months
  • Play More Unlimited: Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+ included
  • Do More Unlimited: Disney+ for six months
  • Get More Unlimited: Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+ included

In addition to the video streaming perk, Apple Music and cloud storage are offered depending on the plan that you choose.

The chart below helps you compare the plans. Keep in mind that the pricing is per line for an account with four lines of service and enrolled in auto pay. Taxes and fees are extra.

Existing Verizon customers who are already receiving 12 months of free access to Disney+ can move to the new plans with The Disney Bundle included or pay $6 a month to stay with their current plan and add Hulu and ESPN+.

All of the new plans support Verizon’s upcoming 5G nationwide network, according to the company.

Final Thought

Verizon’s new plans featuring The Disney Bundle are a better value than before, especially if you have four lines of service and can drop the per line price to $45 a month before taxes and fees.

But for one or two lines of service, there are far more competitive options — including from Verizon-owned Visible.

With Visible, you get unlimited talk, text and data on Verizon’s network for $40 a month. Its Party Pay feature drops that price to as low as $25 a month. Taxes and fees are included.

Visible and other low-cost providers don’t offer perks like The Disney Bundle, but they can cut your phone bill in half.
