3 years ago



In case you didn't know, Disney is rolling out its streaming service. And, this Thursday the time has come to reveal the details. How is it different from similar streaming services like Netflix or Hulu? Oh well, it does have a lot to offer users, and here's what the Typical Student team has learned. 


What's Disney Plus?




Robert A. Iger, Disney’s CEO unveiled the exclusive details on what Disney Plus is all about. 

  • According to Iger, the new Disney subscription video service will stream films and shows from "Disney, Pixar, the “Star Wars” franchise, National Geographic and Marvel." 
  • In the first year of its existence, Disney Plus will offer 10 original movies and 25 original TV series, which will include three "Avengers" spinoffs.
  • Also, all 30 seasons of "The Simpsons" along with nearly all the "Star Wars" movies will be available. Apart from the above, users will enjoy the entire Pixar library, family-focused films, and TV shows like "The Sound of Music" and "Malcolm in the Middle." 


Cost Of Disney Plus Subscription




 Given that Netflix’s cheapest plan is $9, and its standard plan is $13, Disney Plus has high chances of winning over the audience from day one.  Disney Plus arrives November 12 in the US with a subscription cost of only $7/month or $70/year. Disney said it's rolling the streaming service out in Europe and Asia starting next year. The expected number of subscribers by 2024 is about 60 million to 90 million.
