Disney reveals launch date of its streaming service, read details

Disney+ Confirms Vision and Scarlet Witch, What If?, And More Marvel Shows

Fans may have noticed that many of Disney's programs began their exit from Netflix and Amazon Prime yet was found on Hulu. We don't now know when it'll come to those in Australia.

But coupled with Disney's already enviable stable of content - from its namesake studios and TV channels to Marvel, Lucasfilm, Pixar, and ABC - there's no denying that the massive number of family friendly titles within Fox's assets bolsters the value proposition of Disney+ in a way that Disney simply couldn't achieve alone.

Not every hero can headline their own Marvel movie.

The company said the viewers would be able to watch its content on Disney+ after paying a subscription fee of Dollars 6.99 per month.

In the end, however, it's clear that Disney believes its streaming plans would not have come to fruition without the help of Fox.

The Walt Disney Animation Studios will be releasing a documentary series titled "Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2", which will explore the making of one of the most highly anticipated Disney films of all time. "It is that simple". It will feature entertainment from brands including Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and a few just acquired in the 20th Century Fox purchase.

But now movies that came out in 2019, and going forward, will be streamed only on Disney Plus.

- Big spending on shows - Disney will invest heavily in the new streaming service, which is not expected to become profitable until 2024, chief financial officer Christine McCarthy told investors. Though Disney has announced they have original films in the works for Plus, they haven't yet stated they are planning a movie based on The Simpsons.

"Netflix's content balance act continues to appear precarious", says Michael Pachter, analyst at Wedbush Securities.

In addition to theatrical and TV content from Disney's vast library, the service plans to release more than 25 original series and 10 original films, documentaries, and specials by "some of the industry's most prolific and creative storytellers".

At the same time, Google-owned YouTube has been steadily evolving from a global video sharing platform to an Internet-age television service.

The Disney+ service will be available on a wide range of mobile and connected devices, including gaming consoles, streaming media players and smart TVs, and will adjust to the best possible high-definition viewing experience based on a subscriber's available bandwidth, with support for up to 4K HDR video playback.

Also gearing up for streaming launches are: WarnerMedia, which owns studio Warner Bros (Lord of the Rings, The Lego Movie), HBO, and the rights to Netflix's biggest show, Friends; and Comcast's NBC Universal, owner of the U.S. version of The Office - another Netflix hit - as well as Jurassic World and Fast and Furious maker Universal. It will be available when the service launches.
