Folks are excited about Disney+. If you didn’t already buy the three-year-upfront D23 plan for Disney+ streaming, the doors are now open for subscribers, at rates of $69.99 annually, or $6.99 per month. That’s a pretty decent price. It may be that they want to get a lot of customers in the door before they are forced to raise rates in the not too distant future.
The service just started taking sign-ups during the Emmys, while other streamers (mostly Amazon) were busy taking home trophies. This streaming service has over 25 original series and ten films promised in the first year alone, so it will be interesting to see if they’re on the stage next year getting trophies of their own.
Getting the annual plan is the only way you can get a discount at this point in time, while those wanting to bundle their subscription with access to ad-supported Hulu and ESPN+ at a $12.99 rate will have to wait until the service officially launches November on 12th to sign up. If you’re still convinced that the service will be worth it in these early days, there is a free 7-day trial period. So u=you can try it and see if you like it.
