Just in case you missed the news. The Walt Disney Company reviled the new streaming platform “Disney Plus” with their filmmakers and other executive producers during a public shareholder meeting.
Disney Plus will rival with Netflix who at the time held contracts for Disney content until now. Everything Disney owns that is currently on Netflix will expire and when it does they won’t be coming back.
While Netflix continues to raise prices, Disney Plus will be starting its subscription service at $6.99 per month, with an annual option of $69.99 saving you $13.92 per year if you choose that option. This is very generous compared to other streaming services available. I still expect Disney to raise the price over the next 5 years after they get more content under their belt.
Netflix continues to be a top choice for streaming content however they don’t have the production assists that Disney does. With both animation studios, television and movie studios.
Now that The Walt Disney Company has acquired most of 21st Century Fox they have the power to produce more exciting content for Marvel and others on this platform, let’s not forget that The Walt Disney Company also owns 60% of Hulu, so they control the majority of that service as well.
Like Netflix, Disney Plus will not have commercials or any kind of advertisement. Content is divided by category on the platform making it easy to find the TV show or movies you want.
In the image above you can see that the home screen of Disney Plus is similar to what we are already used to. Disney will also be granting access to all of their movies and TV shows at launch, so you can rewatch all of your favorite Disney Movies and cartoons, including movies from Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar.
Disney Plus streaming service will launch on November 12, 2019
Will you be subscribing to the service at launch?
