Best Answer: While Disney has not announced the official price of their upcoming streaming service quite yet, we can guess that it will actually be cheaper than Netflix, which starts at $9 a month.

Everything Disney, all the time: Disney+ (Price TBA)

So we can expect Disney+ to actually be cheaper than Netflix?

That's correct. Bob Iger, CEO of Disney, said in a 2017 earnings call that he wants to undercut Netflix's prices in order to attract as many subscribers as possible.

"I can say that our plan on the Disney side is to price this substantially below where Netflix is. That is in part reflective of the fact that it will have substantially less volume. It'll have a lot of high quality because of the brands and the franchises that will be on it that we've talked about. But it'll simply launch with less volume, and the price will reflect that."

Considering that the cheapest Netflix plan starts at $9 per month, we're expecting it to be something less than that. Perhaps it may even be $5 a month, just like ESPN+, which is also owned by Disney.

Of course, this is all just a guess from us, going off of what Iger has said. But if Disney+ is going to be as cheap as $5 a month, then it'll definitely be much more enticing to many people, considering how vast the Disney library is.

What will Disney+ offer?

Disney+ will pretty much offer all of the family-friendly content that Disney is known for. This includes all classic Disney movies, Marvel, Lucasfilm (Star Wars), Pixar, and National Geographic.

Essentially, the Disney Vault is dead once Disney+ launches. The Disney Vault is the old policy that Disney had where they would put physical and digital releases of its classic movies on a moratorium, so you'd only be able to get them during limited releases. But since the Disney+ streaming service will include all of the classics, the Vault is pretty much dead.

Disney has also been pulling its content from other streaming services, such as Netflix, to get ready for the launch of Disney+. It will also be the only place for streaming new movies after they premiere in theaters, starting with Captain Marvel.

On top of that, Disney+ will have exclusive original content, such as shows based on popular Marvel characters like Loki, Scarlet Witch, and more. And for Star Wars fans, there will even be some original Star Wars programming, including a live-action show called The Mandalorian.

When will Disney+ be available?

There is no official word on a release date yet, but Disney has said that Disney+ should be available in late 2019.

More details about Disney+ will be revealed in the coming months. We'll be sure to keep you updated as more information becomes available.
