Streaming has become the newest form of media. With sites like Netflix and Hulu becoming increasingly popular among consumers, Disney has recently decided to join in the fray, working on its own streaming site called Disney+.
Though netizens aren't that eager to spend on another streaming subscription, Disney has been building up hype over Disney+ by teasing fans with exclusive Marvel and Star Wars series in Disney+, including shows like Lucasfilm's The Mandalorian, the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story prequel series, and all the different live-action series Marvel is developing for characters like Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Loki (Tom Hiddleston), Scarlett Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), and Vision (Paul Bettany).
However, despite the excitement over Disney+, there's actually been very little information about the site itself and the cost of its subscription. Until now that is.
Disney just recently held a presentation day for its investors, and during the event, the Mickey Mouse House revealed its plans for its direct to consumer services, including Disney+'s exact launch date (via ComicBook.com).
It's now been confirmed – Disney+ is going to launch on November 12 this year.
Not only that, but Disney has also revealed the cost of a subscription to the site, saying that fans are going to have to pay $6.99 per month to gain access to its roster of films and series. This is interesting news. It seems like Disney+ is a dollar cheaper compared to its competitors with Netflix and Hulu both costing $7.99.
