Disney+ Streaming Service Will Come to Consoles Later This Year

Disney had a huge investors meeting today, where they shared the official details behind the launch of their upcoming streaming service Disney+. Now we know that Disney+ will drop on November 12th for $6.99 a month. Naturally, the service will also be supported on numerous other devices such as computers, smartphones, streaming media players/devices, and many others. Disney CEO Iger says that all Disney movies will be available to be exclusively streamed on Disney+. Disney+ will also get the first spin-off Rogue One and this year's still untitled Star Wars 9.

Disney+ will include content from across the Disney brands, including Walt Disney Animation, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic.

While it's not a huge surprise that Disney+ is coming to consoles given that so many other streaming services have rolled out onto these platforms over the years, it's still a big market that Disney+ seems to be aiming for in its attempt to take on major streaming competitors in its field, such as Netflix and HBO. That is cheaper than rival Netflix, which charges $US13 per month for its most popular streaming plan, but the Disney service will have a narrower focus on family-friendly shows and movies.

Disney Plus is preparing an insanely exciting slate of content day one for fans.

During today's presentation, the Company unveiled a first look at the Disney+ offering, which will launch in the USA on November 12, 2019 at $6.99 per month.

Earlier this week, the company announced it will premiere a "Monsters, Inc." spin-off TV series to on the streaming service in 2020. "WandaVision", starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, "Falcon and the Winter Soldier", starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, and a series around the "Thor" character Loki is planned, starring Tom Hiddleston. The company also recently acquired 21st Century Fox, which means it can now develop content based on such franchises as Avatar, The Simpsons and the X-Men. Diego Luna and Alan Tudyk will be joining forces once again for a new show based on Cassian Andor for the streamer.

It was believed that there would be a long wait for Star Wars to hit the streaming upstart, as the rights to broadcast the first two trilogies were housed at TNT and TBS.

To paraphrase a certain Agrabah magic carpet user, Disney+ is ready to show you a whole new world of streaming.
