The launch of Disney + is scheduled for November 1
2th. The new streaming service will be filled with exclusive content from Disney and is an attractive alternative to Netflix at $ 6.99.
Of course there is more. Disney + arrives at a time when there seems to be insufficient room for another streaming service. So how is it going to be innovative? What kind of original content can we expect on Disney +, and is there anything unpleasant about the service we have not heard of yet?
Disney + has a sleek, exclusive library
The Disney + Library will be filled with approximately 400 to 500 films and approximately 7,000 TV episodes. That's not much compared to Netflix's library of more than 1,500 television programs (19459010) and more than 4,000 films. But Disney + balances its lean library by offering a ton of exclusive content.
You can expect most of this content to come from Disney's back catalog (and from the catalog of its other features, such as Pixar, FX, Marvel, and Lucasfilms). Disney + gives you access to all of Disney's animated classics (even if they're in the "vault"), all Pixar movies, all Star Wars movies, most of Marvel's movies, The Simpsons and various other programs.
There will also be a handful for Disney shows and movies. Get ready for a Star Wars: rebooting Clone Wars, two live-action Star Wars shows, and some Marvel shows (Falcon and Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, Hawkeye). You can see the complete list of Disney + originals on Wikipedia.
Wait, Disney owns FX and (most of) Hulu. Will the exclusive shows of these companies land on Disney +? The answer is no, especially because Disney wants its new streaming platform to be family friendly. Rumor has it that most FX programs will land on Hulu and Hulu will be Disney's destination for his "adult" traits.
It's cheap, really cheap
Do you remember how Netflix used to be super cheap? Well, those days are long gone, but Disney + is going along with Netflix Consider security as the cheapest way to stare mindlessly at your TV.
As a stand-alone service, Disney + costs only $ 6.99 per month .You can even use Disney + through your Hulu account (as Subscribe to the Add-On for the same price of $ 6.99, provided you want to keep all your shows and movies in one place. (This option may be exclusive to Hulu + Live TV subscribers – Disney h but this is not clear.)
You can also pay Disney + as a package with ESPN + and Hulu. This package costs only $ 12.99 per month, which is the price of the standard Netflix streaming plan. Before you get too excited, we'll talk about the version of Hulu that contains ads. And at this time, Disney has also announced no package with ad-free Hulu. Yes, crap.
