Disney Plus will experience its first price increase in late March of next year, but will also reward subscribers with tons more content…
During its Investor Day event last week, Disney revealed it would bump up the cost of Disney+ by $1, effective March 26, 2021. That puts the total monthly charge at just $7.99 or $79.99 per year. Likewise, the cost of its Hulu and ESPN+ bundle, will also go up by a buck, to $13.99 per month. But, the nominal increase is a very small price to pay for what’s in store for subscribers.
Disney to Raise Disney Plus Streaming Subscription Price by $1
Disney announced that it would release about 10 new Marvel series, along with 10 more Star Wars series, and 15 live-action Disney, Disney Animation, and Pixar series. However, that isn’t all — all of its will go straight to Disney Plus. Moreover, there are new documentaries planned to be released on the streaming platform. And, Disney is now scheduled to bring additional content to consumers with the launch of Star+, slated to roll out to Singapore February 23, 2021, followed by Eastern Europe, Hong Kong, Japan, and South Korea.
Star+ will go live in America next June, beginning at $7.50 per month. It will likely include movies and shows from Disney’s acquisitions of ABC, FX, Freeform, Searchlight, and 20th Century Studios. So, it will probably feature franchises such as Marvel’s Deadpool, Alien, Predator, Die Hard, and ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy.
