The previously announced Disney Plus streaming service will debut this fall and will cost nearly 60 percent less than rival Netflix…
We now know key details about Disney’s new streaming service. Thanks to an email update and an investors’ call with CEO Bob Iger, quite a bit of information is out to the public.
Disney Plus Streaming Service Details Released, including Price and Content Library
Disney first announced its streaming service months ago but until now, there were very few details about it.
The new Disney plus streaming service will make its debut on November 12th of this year.
The inaugural price is $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year — $5.83 per month prepaid for a year. (That’s approximately 58 percent less than the middle Netflix tier, which now costs about $14 per month or $168 per year.)
As expected, content will include Marvel, Pixar, National Geographic, Star Wars, and Disney. Here’s part of the email announcement:
“We’re bringing you an exciting collection of brand new entertainment inspired by our favorite characters and worlds. Our Disney+ Originals include Monsters at Work, a new animated series featuring Mike, Sulley and a whole new group of monsters; The Mandalorian, the galaxy’s first live-action Star Wars series, written and produced by Jon Favreau; High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, a new series that takes place at the actual high school where the original movie was shot, as students count down to opening night of their first-ever production of the musical, High School Musical; as well as a range of unscripted series giving a real-world peek inside the Disney universe.”
It will also include the first 30 seasons of The Simpsons. Disney Plus will likewise offer its classics, as well as its newest hits and popular franchises:
“Timeless classics, today’s favorites, tomorrow’s discoveries. You’ll find epic adventures from Star Wars and thrilling documentaries from National Geographic, including the Academy Award®-winning Free Solo. Plus action-packed superhero movies like Captain Marvel and Avengers: Infinity War. Family favorites include animated classics from Snow White to Frozen, Moana, and Coco, along with TV series like Hannah Montana and The Suite Life of Zack & Cody.
