April 13, 2019 | Business | No Comments|
Disney laid out its streaming strategy on Thursday in a nearly three-hour presentation during its Investor Day in Burbank, California.
Disney’s executives introduced the world to Disney+ and exclusive new content on the service, including its “Star Wars” series, “The Mandalorian.”
Disney packed a lot into those three hours. Here are the five most important things to know about Disney+:
1. Disney+ will be here for the holidays at a low price: The company’s new streaming service will launch on November 12, 2019 in North America. It’ll cost $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year.
It will be the exclusive home for streaming Marvel, “Star Wars,” Disney Animation and Pixar for relatively cheap: Disney+ will cost half of what Netflix charges for its standard plan.
2. The Disney+ homepage looks awfully familiar: Disney gave investors a look at the interface of its new service and it sure looked a lot like the homepages of Apple TV or Netflix.
