Disney+

The cost of a subscription will be as low as $6.99 a month or $69.99 for a year.

Disney’s highly anticipated streaming service is expected to launch Nov. 12, 2019. And Disney+ is sure to give all other streaming services a run for their money when it does. The cost of a subscription will be as low as $6.99 a month or $69.99 for a year, CNBC reports.

For comparison, Hulu’s standard plan costs $11.99 per month. Netflix’s standard plan costs $12.99 per month. YouTube TV just raised its prices to $49.99.

People are already planning their streaming service getaways once Disney+ arrives.

The Simpsons is also set to exclusively stream on Disney+, according to Variety.

In a Twitter thread Thursday, Disney+ announced that it will have all Pixar animated shorts available on day one of its roll out. It will also include new Pixar shorts, including Toy Story spin-offs like as Forky Asks A Question, featuring the film’s newest character, and Lamp Life, featuring Bo Peep.

Disney gave Twitter users a glimpse into what the platform is going to look like and some of its features. The service will allow users to download content, which can then be watched offline. Viewers will also get to create their own profiles with customizable avatars.

All Pixar films and the Walt Disney Signature Collection will be available on the first day of launch. Subscribers will also get an inside look at what it takes to make an animated movie with Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2.
