Disney+ is the upcoming service of the Disney and its shaping up to prove itself quite a deal for the TV viewers. According to media sources, the service is launching on 12th November this year which will support 4 simultaneous streams along with free 4K.
All of these services will be offered to Disney+ subscribers for a sum of only 6.99 dollars per month. In addition to that, subscribers of Disney+ will be made able to create as well as manage 7 of their individual profiles on a single account.
Disney+; a strong competitor for Netflix:-
This is going to make Disney+ a strong competitor for the highly dominant streaming service Netflix. Netflix has already raised its subscription prices this year along with placing in some additional limitations for their simultaneous streams. The cost for a Netflix subscription fee for its standard definition plan is 9 dollars per month with a single stream. For those subscribers who want to stream in HD, they will need to pay a subscription fee of 13 dollars per month and then they will receive 2 streams simultaneously. As for the service of Netflix with 4 simultaneous streams and 4K, the subscription fee is about 19 dollars per month.
These price changes for Netflix have been drastic and the blame has been placed on the dip of the Netflix for its US-based subscribers in the last quarter as per CEO of Netflix, Reed Hastings. This is the first massive dip for Netflix’s subscribers since 2011. This caused the overall growth of Netflix to tumble down along with having its stock prices getting lowered by a lot.
Other Disney+ streams and their fees:-
It is to be mentioned here that not all bundles of Disney+ such as Disney ESPN and Disney Hulu will have the 4 simultaneous streams and 4K benefits. For that bundle, subscribers will have to pay 12.99 dollars per month. With this fee, they will receive 2 streams for the ESPN bundle and one basic stream for the Hulu bundle which will have ad support.
Disney+ making competition with Netflix fierce:-
As of now, Netflix has the most outrageously stocked library of content as compared to Disney+. However, Disney+ is filling up on its library of contents with some original shows. The news about streaming limitations and 4K benefit was announced at the Disney D32 Expo where it was also announced that some original shows and movies will also be coming on the platform of Disney+.
There is a report that Disney+ is bringing series of Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk and Moon Knight on its platform as it original shows. Also, Disney announced that the live-action adaptation for the movie “Lady in the Tramp” will also be a Disney+ exclusive along with the series titled “Obi-Wan Kenobi” which will star Ewan McGregor.
