New Streaming service, “Disney+” released on November 12, 2019

In September 2017, Disney announced plans to create its own streaming service to challenge Netflix, Hulu, and other streaming services. Just over a year later, that service was given a name, “Disney+” with a price of just $6.99 per month and $69.99 a year.  

Disney+ is intended to compete with Netflix, the industry leader and other streaming services. It won’t have as many movies or television shows as Netflix, but Disney hopes to draw customers in with lots of highly popularized content. Eventually, Disney is working on adding more content, but they are more focused on expanding to other countries. 

According to, “Tom’s Guide,” Disney+ launched November 12 at midnight (PT) in the U.S. Disney later announced that the service will be available in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain on March 31, 2020, as of September 23, 2019. 

Disney+ currently hosts hundreds of Disney-related movies and television series and different varieties. Classic animated features like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Pinocchio,” modern-day Disney Channel fares like Descendants, vintage live-action features including The Parent Trapand Old Yeller, a huge collection of ’90s Marvel cartoons, almost every Star Wars flick, Pixar movies, and so much more.  

According to, “Android Authority,” The service currently includes most Marvel movies (16), as well, with only seven of the films including, “Black Panther,” and “Avengers: Infinity War,” but they are currently unavailable until 2020 due to a licensing agreement with Netflix.
