The countdown is on!
In just 49 days, Disney+ will launch in the U.S. and Canada with unrivaled entertainment offerings. Consumers in the U.S. can sign up early for Disney+ and be among the first to start streaming on November 12, 2019, when the service debuts. Pre-order is now live for the general public through launch on DisneyPlus.com, with monthly and annual subscriptions available for purchase at $6.99 and $69.99, respectively, with a seven-day free trial beginning November 12.
In its first year, Disney+ will release more than 25 original series and 10 original films and documentaries, including The Mandalorian, from executive producer and writer Jon Favreau, and Lady and the Tramp, a timeless retelling of the 1955 animated classic, both streaming at launch. Subscribers will also enjoy unprecedented access to a vast collection of films and TV series from iconic brands, including Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic. (For a more comprehensive look to what else is coming to Disney+, check out our expert guide.)
Subscribers will be able to stream content from Disney+ on a wide selection of mobile and connected TV devices at launch, including gaming consoles, streaming media players, and smart TVs. Subscribers will enjoy high-quality and commercial-free viewing, up to four concurrent streams, unlimited downloads, personalized recommendations and the ability to set up to seven different profiles—including the ability for parents to set up special Kids Profiles that feature an easy-to-navigate, child-friendly interface to better access age-appropriate content.
Subscriptions automatically renew, with the option to cancel at any time before each renewal date. As previously announced, on November 12, U.S. consumers will have the opportunity to purchase a bundled offering of Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu (with ads) for $12.99 per month. The bundle offers access to all of the Disney+ programming plus thousands of live sporting events, sports-themed original series and award-winning sports documentaries from ESPN+, as well as Hulu’s award-winning original content and on-demand streaming library. Consumers who are interested in the bundle offering should wait until it becomes available at launch November 12.
