Disney recently unveiled their new streaming service called Disney Plus (Disney+). This paid service will compete alongside other popular streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and in some cases will partner with Hulu for R rated films like Deadpool. Disney Plus will be strictly family friendly and will host some big blockbusters from Marvel and Star Wars.
Disney Plus Launch Date
Disney+ will debut on November 12, 2019 just before the holidays and their highly anticipated sequel Frozen 2 on November 22.
Disney Plus Price/Cost
Included in the announcement of Disney+ was shared the introductory price of $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year. These prices are for the U.S. market and could change, however the price seams fair compared to the competition.
