Verizon extends Disney deal

August 18, 2020

US multiplay telco Verizon and The Walt Disney Company have extended their existing agreement, which Verizon says gives customers even more reasons to be on its network.

Beginning August 20th, Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+1 will be included in select Mix & Match Unlimited wireless plans, along with features such as Apple Music and the ultra-fast speeds of 5G Ultra Wideband.

“Our new Mix & Match plans make the choice clearer than ever: customers get the best network and the best value with Verizon,” said Frank Boulben, SVP Marketing and Products of Verizon Consumer Group. “We led the industry by giving customers Disney+ on us. Now we’re adding The Disney Bundle, which includes Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+, for more entertainment choices that appeal to a variety of interests. We can’t wait to see what customers choose to suit their needs.”

“The addition of The Disney Bundle to our agreement with Verizon reinforces our commitment to providing their subscribers with access to high-quality entertainment from Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+,” said Sean Breen, EVP, Platform Distribution, The Walt Disney Company. “We are always looking for the most advantageous ways for consumers to experience our content and we are pleased to work with Verizon so that they can provide their customers with these appealing new offers.”
