Today, Disney unveiled what could be the next and best thing for streamers and cord cutters. I’m talking about Disney+.
Disney+ will cost $6.99 a month and be available on your usual devices like the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV and Mac, as well as smart TVs too.
Like with Netflix and Hulu, users of the service will be able to create profiles so that they can watch what they want to watch and not have everyone else’s shows and movies. As we have seen with the previous services mentioned earlier, they allow for organization and simplicity for watching content.
Also, the service will look a lot like how the Netflix interface is right now, according to a photo tweeted by Disney CEO Bob Iger today.
Disney+ will include 500 Disney movies as well as 7,000 episodes of Disney TV shows. All of the content on the service will be available to download offline.
There will be five sections of the service, which are Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic.
As of right now, Disney+ will have four new original shows. One will feature Marvel’s Loki character, there will be a Star Wars TV series and another show will be about High School Musical.
The entire series of The Simpsons will be added to the service and will be exclusive to just Disney+. Right now, users can stream The Simpsons on the FX Now app and available on FXX on-demand.
There are currently plans to make it so that consumers can get Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu all on one subscription. The details on the price is still unknown.
Disney+ will be launching on November 12, 2019 and cost $6.99 a month.
