The wait is finally over, and the centerpiece of Disney streaming service is already here to serve all of the great entertainment it promised to dish out at launch
Following an initial test run in the Netherlands, the highly-anticipated Disney+ officially launches in two countries- the USA- it’s home country, and Canada for a start. As promised by the company, the new streaming service comes with a load of entertaining original contents including the first episode of the very first live-action Star Wars series, “The Mandalorian,” along with a deep library of Disney, Pixar and Marvel movies and shows — not to mention the first 30 seasons of “The Simpsons.” which has got the attraction of many lately.
So far, the streaming service is available on the web, iOS, Android, Roku TV, among several others. Additionally, some gaming consoles also offer support for the latest streaming service in town.
While this is not the first streaming service for Disney, the Walt Disney Company had– in a similar attempt– launched ESPN+ last year, taking over the operational control of Hulu following its acquisition of Fox. Now, apart from the respective subscription for the various platforms, Disney is now offering a combo package that it refers to as Disney Bundle, at a monthly price of $12.99 — around the same as a basic Netflix subscription.
Disney+’s subscription still remains as initially informed at $6.99/month. However, the yearly subscription is a little cheaper and will cost $69.99/year (the equivalent of $5.83/month).
