That price is the same as Netflix's most popular plan, which allows streaming on two devices simultaneously. By that point, Disney plans to be investing more than $2 billion on original programming.
In spite of this news, the crown jewel for Disney is still the Disney+ service itself that will be the streaming home for Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar and so much more content.
Disney+ is set to launch in the USA on November 12 of this year, and although they've said they will be launching in Canada as well, no official date has been released.
Are you going to D23 Expo? Those subscriptions alone cost $11 per month, combined, so you're saving about $60 per year with that new bundle.
Video streaming competition will intensify soon, with Apple Inc, AT&T's WarnerMedia's, HBO Max, and Comcast Corp's NBCUniversal, planning to roll out new services. I'm not sure that will be sustainable in the long run - even given the bundle will include ad-driven versions of products -but get it while the price is cheap, people.
We all know the Disney juggernaut will be rolling out its own streaming service this year in an attempt to bring Netflix and Amazon Prime to its knees (sort of). With this bundle, Disney has further sweetened the deal for interested customers. Need cord cutting tech support?
It is unclear what form the reboots would take, or when they might appear on the streaming service, which launches November 12.
The bundle, which is only available in the United States, will nearly certainly put pressure on Netflix and Amazon who have similarly priced services - and could be a key strategy in getting folks to ditch those services for ones offered by Disney. There are others out there, notably Apple, Amazon and Google for instance that we've been in discussions with about distribution.
