The Shortlist 8/9: Behind the Disney Bundle and the Amazon-FedEx Break Up
The Magic Kingdom is keeping an eye on cord cutting. Disney announced a new bundled streaming service this week which includes ESPN-Plus and Hulu as it braces for the future of television.
Disney’s bundle will sell for $12.99.

There should be plenty of revenue coming into retailers in August as kids go back to school. According to the National Retail Federation, more than $80.7 billion will be spent on school supplies this season.
The NRF has tracked back-to-school shopping since 2003, and expects families to spend approximately $22 more this year for K-12 students and $54 more dollars for college students year-over-year.
