Disney Plus is coming, and lots of people are pretty excited for it. We're 50/50 on it so far - we'll wait to see what the library offers before making any judgements on the platform.
As the launch date approaches, we're slowly being dripfed information about what Disney Plus will offer. Here is everything we know so far:
It'll be November 12th 2019 for most of us (that's everyone in the US). Other countries don't have confirmed release dates yet, but we imagine it will be available everywhere by the end of the year.
The price will start from $7 per month, a very competitive price for a streaming service.
500 movies and 7,500 tv show episodes will be available on the platform - not much compared to the likes of Amazon Prime or Netflix, but when the movies they have includes the likes of Star Wars and Avengers, it'll still be enough to draw subscribers. Plus, Disney have done a good job at teasing the release of a few new tv shows which will be exclusive to the platform, like The Mandalorian
Pretty much in all the ways you can currently watch Netflix - smart TVs, tablets/smartphones/laptops, Xbox One/PS4 etc. Disney have confirmed distribution agreements with Apple, Sony, Microsoft and Google, so all of their devices will be supported.
There will be some pretty cool features, including:
In short, we know what Disney+ will cost, the titles it will have and the features it will have.
