If you’re as obsessed with Disney as I am, then you’re probably excited to hear that Disney will officially be entering the streaming wars with Disney+ on November 12, 2019! You’re probably wondering which of the thousands of shows and movies you’ll watch first. From new and old shows to classic Disney films and newly acquired franchises (Stars Wars & Marvel), there are so many options! I for one will be watching Kim Possible and A Goofy Movie first.
You probably also want to know how much it costs. Well, this new Disney-only streaming service will only cost $6.99 per month, or $69.99 per year. That’s pretty good compared to $8.99 per month for Netflix, or even the $7.99 per month for DC Universe.

The interface will be a lot like Netflix with rows of sections including a recommendations list, TV shows, movies, and genres. Unlike Netflix, however, there will be five sections fixed to the top:
Also like Netflix, users can create individual profiles. Plus, child profiles will automatically have parental controls placed on them.
While it has been stated that Disney+ will eventually host every Disney film, the platform will start with about 7,000 shows and 500 movies. In addition, Disney+ will exclusively hold the rights to The Simpsons - that’s all 30 season available to stream!
If you were worried about the first six Star Wars films not being available to stream via Disney+, don’t fret, because they’ll be there. There will even be a new Star Wars show called The Mandalorian, a series focused on Cassian Andor from Rogue One.
There will also be a variety of live-action Marvel movies and shows to choose from, with Captain Marvel being the first Marvel movie to stream exclusively on Disney+. You’ll also find new shows focusing on characters like Loki and Hawkeye, so be sure to look out for those when you start streaming!
Disney+ will be available to stream on Smart TVs, web browsers, plus also on tablets, mobile devices, and game consoles. It will also be available via Roku and Sony devices. You can also download content to view offline.
