As you may have already heard, Disney is going to give Netflix a run for its money with Disney+, the brand’s very own streaming service. In addition to revealing a new immersive hotel to Disneyland, the entertainment giant has shared more details on its streaming service.
We now know that, for a starting price of $6.99 per month, there will be more than 500 feature films and over 7,500 TV shows, including the much anticipated original series like Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian and Falcon and Winter Soldier, coming from Disney, ABC, ESPN, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, FX, 20th Century Fox, Fox Searchlight, National Geographic, Star, as even Hulu which, btw, is majority-owned by Disney.
According to what we have read, the experience should be more or less the same as you have with Netflix, including the ability to download shows for offline viewing. The latter is unlimited and so, what’s stopping you will be how much storage space you have on your trusty device(s).
In addition, content will stream in 4K, HDR and in Dolby Atmos, and mind you, that’s for the base plan of $6.99, not just the $12.99 a month bundle which comes with ESPN+ and Hulu. And now, for the most important question that every consumers will want to know: can you share password with Disney+? Well, it seems that it is possible. Disney+ will allow up to four concurrent streams per account, according to a report.
However, the company isn’t quite worried about password-sharing from eroding its earning as it is confident that, at $6.99 a month, it will be cheap enough to entice people to get their own account. Meanwhile at the D23 Expo, Disney also show off to guests the UI on Apple TV and as you can see, it is no stranger to Apple TV users.
Disney+ will be available to iOS, Apple TV, Android, Playstation 4, Roku and Xbox One. Disney+ will be officially available starting November 12, 2019.
