The long-awaited Disney+ streaming service is almost ready for launch.
The U.S. will get to experience the magic of the 300+ Disney titles and 7,500 episodes of television on November 12, 2019. And one of interested consumers’ top questions has been cost. It was announced last month that Disney+ would be an add-on option for Hulu subscribers, but again price was still a question.
But all of these details have now been ironed out and released by Disney CEO Bob Iger.
One important feature we’ve learned is Disney+ will feature ad-free content at no additional costs! The monthly fee for the service will be $6.99/month (or $69.99/year, saving you almost $14 in the long run). Additionally, you’ll be able to get Hulu’s basic service ($5.99) and ESPN+ ($4.99) along with Disney+ for a monthly total of $12.99 (for a savings of almost $7).
There is one small detail to note about the package deal: the bundle only features Hulu’s basic plan, which is not ad-free. Currently, Hulu offers an ad-free service for $12.99/month but at this time there is no plan to offer the bundle with this option.
Disney+ is set to debut with some impressive content. The Mandalorian, a live-action Star Wars series from Jon Favreau, Marvel’s Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World, every The Simpsons episode, 70 of your vault favorites and so much more are all set to be available on launch day. We also learned at San Diego Comic-Con that plenty of original content from Marvel will be premiering on the service beginning in 2020, making this a staple in entertainment.
Stay tuned for further Disney+ details as we get closer to November!
