Disney+: How Much Will The New Disney Streaming Service Cost?

Disney+: How Much Will The New Disney Streaming Service Cost?

Disney Plus will roll out in the United States on November 12 at a price of $6.99 per month, well below the $13 monthly fee charged by Netflix, which holds a dominant position in the streaming sector. Subscribers will be able to download all of the shows and movies on Disney's service to watch offline.

The company is banking on what it terms a "treasure trove" of assets to make its upcoming rival service, Disney+, a Netflix-killer.

Disney+ will launch "with a robust library of theatrical and television content" and will release more than 25 original series and 10 original films, documentaries and specials in its first year, according to the company. If that wasn't enough, Disney also revealed last week it plans to invest $1 billion toward producing original content for Disney+ by the end of next year, including series revolving around the storylines of specific Star Wars, Marvel, and legacy Disney characters. Each episode will explore a pivotal moment from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and turn it on its head, leading the audience into uncharted territory.

"Magic of the Animal Kingdom", a series that takes a look at how keepers take care of the wildlife at Disney's Animal Kingdom and EPCOT's SeaBase aquarium, available year one.

These new series join a long list of already announced titles including "High School Musical: The Series", "Monsters at Work", the new season of " Star Wars: The Clone Wars" and "Loki", among many others. With the official announcement of this show, it seems that we will be in store for more odd couple missions that we caught a bit of a glimpse of in Captain America: Civil War.

Of course, it certainly won't hurt that Disney can now supplement its studio, parks and resorts, media networks, and consumer products segments with Fox's portfolio of film and TV franchises, notably including Deadpool, Avatar, X-Men, Fantastic Four, This Is Us, Modern Family, The Simpsons, and (as Iger noted) National Geographic. "We'll continue to enhance the user experience with a constant pipeline of high-quality programming, making the service even more appealing to consumers". Disney also picked up FX Networks and doubled its ownership in Hulu to a controlling 60% stake through the deal.

As for the user experience, Disney promises that Disney+ subscribers will be able to create customer profiles and receive personalized experiences curated to their own unique tastes.

It'll be available in the United States on November 12, 2019 and it's expected to drop in Canada shortly after. You can see that slide below.
