Online streaming business is set to become more competitive by the end of this year. Disney has announced that its highly anticipated streaming service, which is set to take on the likes of Netflix and Amazon, would launch in the US on November 12.
The company said the viewers would be able to watch its content on Disney+ after paying a subscription fee of USD 6.99 per month. The service will offer Disney’s films and TV shows, including Marvel Studios’ superhero films and “Star Wars” franchise, along with the products it acquired from Rupert Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox. Disney’s animated films including the classics such as “Snow White”, “Cinderella”, “Aladdin”, “Beauty and the Beast”, “Moana”, and “The Little Mermaid” will all be available to stream when Disney+ launches. The entire library of Pixar will also be available within the year, the company said in a statement.
Disney, which recently completed its acquisition of 21st Century Fox, also announced that the entire 660-episode-plus library of Fox’s “The Simpsons” will be coming to Disney+ when it is launched.
