It’s been a long time coming, however, Disney has finally released more information regarding their upcoming streaming service.
Disney Plus as it’s called will roll out in the US as of Nov. 12, 2019. Following the launch, the service will also make its way to Canada, the Netherlands, Australia, and New Zealand. There’s no set date for rollouts in any other regions as of yet.
Pricing was also released and it’s very aggressive if I’m being honest. For a month of Disney Plus, except to pay $6.99 a month or $69.99 per year in the US. While other markets will see comparable pricing as well. In addition, you can also pick up a bundle that includes Disney Plus, Hulu and ESPN+ for $12.99. This bundle seems appealing, especially since it adds HULU. Though, I can see a bit of content here for folks who already subscribe to the existing HULU and Spotify bundle. No word how that will be affected as of yet.
As for how you’ll be able to watch the service, Disney had already stated that both Roku players/ TV’s and the PlayStation 4 were compatible. Today they’ve announced that iOS, Apple TV, Android, Android TV, Google Chromecast and Xbox One will be supported at launch.
So the big question is, why should you subscribe to Disney Plus? Well, for starters, once this service is online, it will be the only place to watch your favorite Disney shows. The company has already announced that most if not all Marvel films will be pulled from Netflix as of 2020. In addition, Disney has announced multiple original shows that will be home to the service. This includes Marvel’s animated series What If?, Loki, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Hawkeye and The Mandalorian for starters.
