Disney announced the pricing for its new streaming service on Thursday, and it’s lower than you might think!
CEO Bob Iger revealed the details on the company’s new streaming service at an investor day at the company’s Buena Vista studios in California.
Disney+ will be $6.99 per month and $69.99 annually (or $5.83 per month). The service won’t have advertisements, so you won’t be interrupted while watching. Television shows and movies from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic, plus 30 full seasons of The Simpsons will be available for subscribers to watch.
Iger explained that Disney+ contains a lot of family content. “If consumers want sports, they can subscribe to ESPN+. If they want adult content, they can subscribe to Hulu, and if they want family, there’s Disney(+),” Iger said.
“I’m pretty optimistic about the ability for this thing to work. Particularly when you make it accessible because of the content we’re putting on, because of the user interface and because of the price,” Iger expressed.
“We’re designing a product that we want to be accessible to as many consumers as possible,” Iger said. “We just feel that Disney is loved by so many millions and millions of people around the world.”
Disney is predicting on getting 60 to 90 million subscribers by 2024. Disney+ won’t go live until November 12, but we are so excited!
