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.

Amazon has plenty of items available for $12.99 but they will be getting to your doorstep a little differently from now on. The company and FedEx announced the end of their partnership this week.

The partners turned rivals have become less and less reliant on each other over the last two years. FedEx stated that less than 1.3% of its total revenue in 2018 came from Amazon.

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.
