Disney reveals huge content roadmap ahead of US launch

Disney’s online video streaming service, Disney, is set to launch in the US on November 12th, bringing with it an incredible amount of first-party content from Disney, Fox, Marvel Studios, National Geographic and more. 

Right now, November 12th is set to be the service’s US launch date, with Disney planning a worldwide rollout for all major regions over the coming months and years, with the service hoping to match Netflix’ coverage by 2021. 

Initially, the service will cost $6.99 in the US or $69.99 per year, offering customers a lot more value than what Netflix offers. This pricing is subject to change as the service evolves, though at this time the service’s base tier will include 4K HDR streaming and playback for downloaded videos offline, both of which are highly sought after features for some users.  

With Disney, the media giant plans to host almost all of its content under one banner, confirming that all 30 seasons of The Simpsons will be available on the service alongside over 7,500 television episodes of shows and over 500 films will be available on the service at launch. 

When it comes to new and exclusive content, Disney has already confirmed that a new season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and a live-action series called “The Mandalorian” will be available on the service. At launch, 10 original films and 25 original series’ will be available on the service.
