We finally know more about Disney+, the upcoming streaming service from Disney! In addition to this, the service includes parental controls, offline viewing, 4K HDR support and will be priced at $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year. "A post-Endgame MCU will be extremely different and extremely focused on Disney+ tying into our future movies", he said. The service will launch first in the United States, with plans to release in other markets later. Disney CEO Iger says that all Disney movies will be available to be exclusively streamed on Disney+.
The studio first announced back in 2017 that it would be ending licensing deals with streamers like Netflix and launching its own branded streaming service. That is cheaper than rival Netflix, which charges $US13 per month for its most popular streaming plan, but the Disney service will have a narrower focus on family-friendly shows and movies. It'll also be the exclusive streaming home of Disney theatrical releases, starting with Captain Marvel, which will be available to stream when the service launches.
During today's presentation, the Company unveiled a first look at the Disney+ offering, which will launch in the USA on November 12, 2019 at $6.99 per month. Projects already in the works include a Monsters Inc. spin-off series, a The Sandlot TV series, and many new Marvel projects. Its animated classics, including "Aladdin" and "The Jungle Book" will be available on the service when it launches. The show will be based on Luna's character, Cassian Andor.
Created to super-serve the most ardent fans, Disney+ will provide subscribers with a feature-rich product experience that makes it easy to navigate, discover, and watch their favorite programming with immersive brand tiles and dedicated pages for Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic. Netflix films such as the award-winning "Roma" and "The Ballad of Buster Scruggs" have either become available for streaming on the same day or just a few days after their short runs in theatres.
