Disney Finally Dropped The Details About Its Upcoming Streaming Service And The Internet Is Freaking Out

Updated on

Is Disney+ about to be the go-to streaming service? Some folks on the Internet think so, especially since Disney has finally unveiled more details about the upcoming service. With everything it offers, Disney fanatics are already planning to say goodbye to their other subscriptions!

Going Live

The company revealed that its upcoming streaming service, Disney+, is indeed coming to consumers this year. The service will officially launch on November 12 and will cost $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year. That’s lower than the current monthly cost of Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

Much like its competitors, Disney+ will be available on a variety of screens. “The Disney+ service will be available on a wide range of mobile and connected devices, including gaming consoles, streaming media players, and smart TVs,” Disney shared in a statement. So customers will be able to watch their favorite shows and flicks whenever they want.

The Wonderful World Of Disney

Disney+ is giving fans literally everything they could imagine in the company’s catalog. Throwback Disney cartoons as well as Disney Channel TV shows and original movies, old and new, will be a part of the service. Movies and shorts from Pixar as well as the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the Star Wars film and TV series.

What’s even better is that the service will give access to all 13 of Disney’s Signature Collection films (previously locked away in Disney’s vault!). That includes The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and more. Disney+ will also offer the live-action films the company has made over the years.

A Special Surprise

Another interesting twist is that Disney+ will offer family-friendly movies and shows from Fox including Malcolm in the Middle and all 30 seasons of The Simpsons! With all of this amazing content, it’s no wonder that people are ready to leave Netflix and the rest in the dust.

“Disney+ at $6.99/month and $69.99/year could be a Netflix killer. Or at least seismically shake up the streaming game,” Alisha Grauso, editorial lead at Atom Tickets, said on Twitter. “Seriously though, #DisneyPlus is cheaper and a better value than all the major movie channels, half the price of HBO, and includes content literally everybody will want,” shared Twitter user @jmatthewlucas. Looks like this new service is going to be a game changer!
