Yeah that sounds right up my alley.

Man roll in Marvel Comics Unlimited at a discount and I'm even more in.

So I see Netflix is losing Clone Wars in April.

Do we have release date for the Disney+ service yet?

I wish all of the old cartoons featuring Micky and Minnie, Donald and Goofy will be shown. I haven't seen any of those since I was a kid.

Launches November 12th. $6.99/month or $69.99/year. Easy buy for me.

Done and done.

To put this in perspective this is less than DC Universe (granted DC Universe just got a whole lot better if they really add all those comics to it)

They are going to get their hooks in you and raise the price every year like Netflix did, but man... Netflix just raised their prices too. If they don't change to a cheaper, annual pass, I'm going to be dropping them and subscribing like every 6 months or so to binge.

Disney is going for Netflix's throat with that $7 a month price.

By 2025, that monthly fee will be something ridiculous like $19.95. It's only going up once they establish a user base.

It's a pretty safe bet. Look at YouTube TV. Started​ at $35/month and now, two years later, it's $50.

Look at everyone in this thread that's jumping at D+ low price. No way it will stay there.

Eh, enjoy the price now and don't worry about it. Unless they are putting subliminal messages in it to force you to subscribe, you can always not renew (if I were a youtube TV subscriber, I would have cancelled). Hopefully the competition between the streaming services will result in somewhat stagnant prices, though.

Netflix at least still has the adult content stuff covered; the problem is going to be if Disney bundles this with Hulu for cheaper than Netflix.

And whoever is in charge of Apple+ has to go back to the drawing board on price tonight, I'm sure.

Man this is coming to the Nintendo Switch too?

Re: Disney to launch streaming service in 2019 & ESPN service in 2018

500 Movies and 7,500 Episodes isn't that much. Their catalog is enormous. Especially considering that they're including stuff from FOX, ABC and NatGeo. The Simpsons, Boy Meets World and Malcolm In The Middle is about 1000 episodes. And there's over 100 Disney Channel Original Movies. I think people are going to be disappointed with how much stuff is missing.

That would explain my over enthusiasm to pay for yet another streaming service because it's cheaper than the other streaming service I'm already paying for and underutilizing.

$6.99 a month for all 30 seasons worth of that show -- that's a fucking no-brainer right there.

And prepaid for the year is $5.83 a month. Take my money now!

Well, he is probably right but Netflix cost me what...$15.95 right now, which is no longer crazy cheap so I expect Disney to incrementally increase the monthly rate every 12-18 months. At least it will take them some time to get to what I pay for Netflix. It is an easy buy for me, anything $9.99 or less the first year and I knew I would suck it up and pay for another streaming service.

i just hope classics like Old Yeller, Pollyanna, Darby O’Gill, Old Yeller, Swiss Family Robinson, The Parent Trap, The Shaggy Dog, and others make their way onto the platform.

ETA: I see The Parent Trap is on the list, good to see as it gives me hope other classics will follow.

That higher Netflix price is for more screens and 4K content. It's yet to be seen what this $6.99 will be though right? It could just be one screen and no 4K.

The entire Disney library is supposed to be offered.

They are doing another remake of Parent Trap.

We don't know how many screens, but they both mentioned 4k and that there wouldn't be any tiers, 6.99 is all.

Awesome.

Sure the price will go up overtime. That is to be expected. If they bundle it with other services they own for a discount, even better. I am very excited for what they are offering.
