In the world of online streaming, two platforms dominate the others. Hulu is one of them, and Netflix ranks slightly higher. That’s all going to change on November 12, 2019, when Disney rolls out there highly anticipated Disney Plus service. On April 11, the company unveiled its plans to step into the streaming game and so far fans can’t wait.
It used to be that people could enjoy movies or TV shows produced by the magical kingdom on Netflix and or other platforms, but that won’t be the case anymore. Everything related to Disney is getting stripped from other services and placed on theirs, along with a whole lineup of new originals like a series dedicated to Marvel villain Loki starring Tom Hiddleston.
On paper, this seems like a great idea. It will only cost $6.99 per month, which is substantially cheaper than the current top competitors. The room collectively gasped after hearing how little it will cost.
“One of the many unique qualities of Disney films is their evergreen appeal. Starting with Snow White in 1937, our films were designed to entertain people of all ages,” Disney CEO Robert Iger said at a presentation to announce the service. “Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars films share that same powerful characteristic, and they’re all going to populate Disney Plus.”
Until further notice, Netflix will still have an advantage with video programming lineup since they’ve spent billions of dollars over the past six years on original shows such as House of Cards and Stranger Things. Will you switch over on November 12?
