Disney's streaming services will available soon, and it looks like a better deal than Netflix and Amazon Prime.
Disney has been pulling or limiting its titles from major streaming networks for a while now. Favorite Disney films are either unavailable on Prime Video, or they appear for a limited time at a steep price. Many of us who are crazy about Disney classics have been itching for access to our family favorites. The time is almost here, and the price is right.
The Disney bundle will cost $12.99 per month and it will include Disney, ESPN, and ad-supported Hulu. The Disney Video streaming service will include all your favorite classics and new Disney releases.
Disney has acquired Fox, and will also offer all episodes of “The Simpsons,” “The Sound of Music,” “The Princess Bride,” and “Malcolm in the Middle.”
There is talk of reimagining some old favorites, like "Home Alone,” “Night at the Museum,” “Cheaper by the Dozen,” and “Diary of a Wimpy Kid.”
As soon as their theatrical and home entertainment windows have closed, subscribers can access all of the Disney films released in 2019. That includes "Frozen II," which will be available on the platform by the summer of 2020. "Frozen II" will not be available through any other streaming service.
Those who just want to subscribe to Disney+ can do so $6.99 a month, or $69.99 for a full year.
Sports enthusiasts will want the whole package since it includes ESPN.
So many people are canceling their expensive cable contracts for more affordable streaming services. Sports fans often cannot part with cable services because they need ESPN. Disney is poised to change this with its new offering. $12.99 per month is a fraction of cable's cost.
The ESPN+ service, which launched last year, has already grown to reach 2 million subscribers. We are betting the bundle will make this fast growth even faster.
Amazon Prime and Netflix are certainly affordable, but neither offers their own Sports Network. Disney's new bundle is working out to be the best deal out there.
