Even as these streaming services, of which there are many, continue to rake in customers, prices aren't set in stone. Which means, eventually, a price hike is probably going to happen. Hulu's no stranger to that, and now the service is doing it again, with new price plans going into effect starting in October of this year.
Disney+ subscriber count continues rising as the entertainment conglomerate added an impressive 16 million subscribers in the June quarter for a total of 116 million paying customers.
