Disney+ Announcement Sends Company Stock Soaring

Disney+ Announcement Sends Company Stock Soaring

A monthly subscription will be available for $6.99, with annual subscriptions costing $69.99. Disney has already begun the process by removing its content from Netflix. We don't know when it will arrive in the United Kingdom, for example, but the firm intends to get the service online and available in "nearly all major regions of the world within the next two years".

The service also plans to bring some programming not traditionally associated with the House of Mouse to Disney Plus, some of which comes from the company's recent acquisition of 21st Century Fox.

It will launch on November 12, 2019.

Lee also announced that an unscripted series titled Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2 will premiere on Disney+.

Choosing a streaming service used to be simple. Sure, you'll still have to have a Netflix account but it'll be totally worth it. Its announcement comes weeks after that of Apple TV+, Apple's (AAPL) streaming service due out later this year with content from Hollywood heavyweights such as Oprah, Steven Spielberg, Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. That includes the likes of Captain Marvel, which will make its debut at home on the streaming service instead of, say, Netflix.

Even the best comparative charts aren't detailed enough to explain how these services stack up against each other. Though a full list of supported devices has not been announced, the company did confirm support for Roku and Sony products.

Disney+, which is Disney's first foray into direct-to-consumer streaming service, will debut exclusively in the USA sometime this fall. What if you're an anime junkie? Not to mention when they do add more content, it usually means raising prices as well.

$7 a month (or less for a yearly price) is just so value-packed, considering the catalog Disney is offering.

Frankly, I'm exhausted of being squeezed for more each month. By the sound of it, you'll be able to binge on all the superhero movies and animated classics you can handle, because Disney+ is coming to consoles. In addition, there will be original programming including a show based on Disney's successful High School Musical franchise and another one based on Monster Inc. "These will be both new and continuing stories and one of the things we're most excited about is that these will be major storylines set in the MCU with ramifications that will be felt both in the Disney+ shows we're producing and our features on the big screen".

But on to what you're likely here to read about, the content.

My point is: There are too many video streaming services.
