Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon may be streaming giants, but can even they stand up to the combined might of the Avengers, the Galactic Empire, and… Olaf? Nope, we don’t think so either, but we’ll find out for sometime next year when Disney launches its new streaming service, which will be going head-to-head with them and bring with it a massive programming counter-punch. And if you’re wondering what this service is all about, you’ve come to the right place — scroll down to get all of your Disney streaming service questions answered and read a guide to the different original shows and films that will be featured!
What is the Disney streaming service’s name?
For a brief time reports claimed that the service would be called “Disney Play,” but that has been labeled false from the Mouse House. Now we know that’s actually called “Disney+.”
What is the price of the Disney streaming service?
Less than Netflix — that much we know. While that service charges subscribers between $8 and $14 a month, Disney’s cost will be lower than that, part of the reason for which comes from the fact that much of its content will come from within the company’s deep library (more on that in a moment!).
What TV shows are included on the Disney streaming service?
For starters, let’s remember that besides Disney-related product, the company is also the owner of Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and the Muppets — which means that there is an opportunity for a ton of original content. As the head of Disney, Bob Iger, told Variety, “We have the luxury of programming this product with programs from those brands or derived from those brands, which obviously creates a demand and gives us the ability to not necessarily be in the volume game, but to be in the quality game.”
