The Platinum Card® from American Express is the gift that keeps on giving.

Cardholders now have the option of free or discounted access to 3 additional digital entertainment channels: Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu

The latest additions are among the most popular in mainstream entertainment channels and streaming platforms that cover everything from Disney films for the kids (and adults) to the most important sports events, as well as the seemingly endless amount of choice that comes with Hulu.

Let’s unwrap this latest gift from American Express.

Amex Adds New Digital Entertainment Platforms

One of the most recently added perks of the Amex Platinum card is enrolling in the digital entertainment credit of up to $20 each month (up to $240 annually) on eligible purchases made with your card on 1 or more of the following: Disney+, The Disney Bundle, ESPN+, Hulu, The New York Times, Peacock, and The Wall Street Journal. Enrollment is required.

The new additions to this perk mean you now have more choice when deciding how to spend your credit.

In fact, just by opting for 1 of the new additions, you can get access to all 3 as each platform offers bundles that include Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu. You can, of course, choose to subscribe to just 1 of the platforms, depending on whether you’re more into sports than Disney. However, there’s definitely value to be had when bundling all 3 together. If you’re already signed up to 1 or more of the platforms, you should be able to upgrade easily to a bundle if you decide you’d like access to all 3.

The pricing and the make-up of each of the platform’s bundles vary slightly — here’s what you can expect to pay:

Disney+

Packages covered by the $240 annual digital entertainment credit:

  • Monthly — $7.99
  • Annual — $79.99 ($16 cheaper than a monthly subscription)
  • Disney+ plus Hulu (with ads) and ESPN+ bundle — $13.99 per month
  • Disney+ plus Hulu (no ads), and ESPN+ bundle — $19.99 per month

Bottom Line: The $19.99 per month bundle option with Disney Plus is definitely the best value if you want to subscribe to all 3 platforms — the best part is it would be fully covered by the annual $240 digital entertainment credit that comes with the Amex Platinum card. The only option it doesn’t include is Hulu’s Live TV option.

  • Disney+ plus Hulu (no ads) + Live TV, and ESPN+ bundle — $75.99 per month

ESPN+

Packages covered by the $240 annual digital entertainment credit:

  • Monthly — $6.99
  • Annual — $69.99 ($14 cheaper than a monthly subscription)
  • ESPN+, Hulu (with ads), and Disney Plus — $13.99 per month

Hulu

Packages covered by the $240 annual digital entertainment credit:

  • Monthly (with ads) — $6.99
  • Monthly (no ads) — $12.99
  • Annual (with ads) — $69.99

Final Thoughts
