A lot of news has come out recently regarding Disney’s upcoming streaming service, which doesn’t have a name yet. In a Q4 earnings call, Disney CEO Bob Iger gave an idea regarding pricing on how much the service will cost monthly, he did by saying:
“Our plan on the Disney side is to price this substantially below where Netflix is,” “That is in part reflective of the fact it’ll have less volume,”
He also added that the service will launch with “a lot of high quality,” and that over the course of time when other titles are added, the price will increase. To give you an idea, Netflix currently ranges in its price from $7.99 to $13.99, by Iger’s comments, the starting price for Disney’s service could be below the $7.99 mark.
As Disney is preparing to make this a juggernaut in the streaming providers atmosphere, they have tried to acquire Fox (for which you can read more here) in order to add franchises to the service such as the “X-Men” , Simpsons, and many others. The service is set to launch in 2019 and will be ad free. What do you think of the whole idea of Disney having its own streaming service? Will it be a hit?
