Walt Disney Co. shares surged the most since December 2020 after the company reported better-than-expected subscriber growth for its streaming service and said it would raise the price of Disney+ by 38% to boost revenue. 

On Dec. 8, Disney will introduce an ad-supported version of the flagship streaming service and raise the price of the ad-free option to $11 a month, the entertainment giant said Wednesday. Prices for some packages that include Hulu and ESPN+ will also rise.
