Here is the main difference in features between the two packages.
Both of these plans offer on-demand streamed content, including Hulu originals and hundreds of shows and movies. With a Hulu Basic plan, you can create up to six user profiles and stream simultaneously on two profiles. You can subscribe to two options:
The cheaper option is the Hulu ad-supported plan costs $6.99 per month.
The Hulu (no-ads) plan costs $12.99 per month and gives you additional access to offline viewing.
The Hulu Disney bundle subscriptions come in three different types:
The Hulu, Disney Plus, and ESPN add-supported plan costs $13.99 per month. This gives you access to all the on-demand content on all three platforms, as well as live sports on ESPN.
The Hulu, Disney Plus, and ESPN ad-free plan costs $19.99 per month and gives you ad-free access to the above, as well as the option to download and watch content offline.
The Hulu, Disney Bundle and Live TV plan costs $69.99 per month and lets you access all of the above, plus over 75 different Live TV channels.

If you are not billed directly by Hulu and are signed up with third parties, you will not be able to upgrade or change your plan through Hulu. You will instead need to go to the third party. It is also important to note that not all third-party billing providers give you the option to update to every Hulu plan.
On Disney Plus
If you are billed through Disney Plus, you can only choose to have the Hulu Disney Bundle package with or with ads. There is no option for live TV.
If you want to upgrade to include live TV in your package, you will need to cancel your current plan, the Disney bundle, through the Disney Plus website and then re-subscribe to it through your Hulu account.
If you are billed through Amazon, you cannot add the Disney bundle to your subscriptions however you can upgrade your account to include live TV through Hulu directly, on the Hulu app or through the Hulu site on a web browser by going to the Manage Plan section in your account settings.
If you want to sign up for the Disney bundle, you will have to go to the Disney Plus website and sign up there. You may choose to cancel your current plan before you do this.
With Spotify for students
If you are billed through Spotify for students, there is no option to upgrade. You may only use the basic plan.
If you want more content or an upgraded Hulu plan, then you will need to sign up through Hulu directly on the Hulu account page.
Verizon comes with access to the Disney bundle but does not offer any other options to upgrade to different plans. This means if you want to add Live TV or upgrade to a new plan you will need to create an account on Hulu and re-subscribe there.
With a Roku or Xfinity
If you signed up for Hulu through your Roku or Xfinity smart TV, you could upgrade your package through the TV.
For the Roku TV (only if you are billed through Roku):
