The next Disney + Disney streaming service is emerging as a good deal. According to CNET the service will be launched on November 12 with support for four simultaneous and 4K transmissions included, all for the base price of $ 6.99 per month. Subscribers can also create and manage up to seven profiles in a single account.
That will make it highly competitive with Netflix, which increased its prices earlier this year and has more stringent limitations on simultaneous transmissions. Netflix now costs $ 9 a month for a standard definition plan with only one transmission available. If you want HD streaming, you must pay $ 13 a month, and that offers you two simultaneous streams. For 4K and four simultaneous streams, it costs $ 16 per month. (The company also recently raised prices in the United Kingdom.)
Netflix price changes have been so dramatic, in fact, that CEO Reed Hastings blamed the increase in US subscribers. UU. The last quarter, the first decline in national Netflix users since 2011. The setback slowed Netflix's overall growth and also caused its shares to fall.
Notably, Disney's ESPN and Hulu package for Disney + will not have the same benefits of simultaneous streaming. With the package, which will cost $ 12.99, subscribers will only get two simultaneous ESPN + streams and a basic Hulu broadcast with advertising.
Of course, Netflix has a much more robust library than Disney + at the moment, but Disney is completing its next platform with a series of original programs. The streaming limitation and 4K news, which were revealed during interviews at Disney D23 Exhibition, join a series of new announcements about shows and movies that will arrive at Disney + later this year. CNET also reports that Disney will release new episodes of original series on Disney + weekly, as opposed to all at once as Netflix, a strategy that will probably help you extend the lifespan of your previous programming program while play catch up with competitors.
The company is bringing a series of Ms. Marvel to its platform, as well as one focused on She Hulk and another on Moon Knight. Disney also announced today a live adaptation Lady in the Tramp that will be exclusive to Disney + and confirmed the highly anticipated original Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor.
Prior to D23, Disney has promised a number of other attractive Disney + benefits, including numerous other Star Wars series such as The Mandalorian and a seventh season of Clone Wars ; shows centered on the popular Marvel Hawkeye, Falcon / the Winter Solider and Loki characters; and streaming exclusivity for a series of high-profile movies like Frozen 2 and live action The Little Mermaid.
