Disney has announced further details of its Disney+ service at its Investor Day presentation..
$6.99 per month and $69.99 annually thats the price in the US so around $10 Australian a month! So thats already cheaper than Netflix and Stan and considering the amount of content Disney has and also the 20th Century Fox catalog thats a crazy good price!
What’s on it?
Originals is going to play a huge part of Disney+ here’s some that have just been announced and some further that already have.

Unconfirmed but possible – Hawkeye series starring Jeremy Renner, Variety announced it but it wasn’t confirmed by Disney.
Overall Disney+ is going to be insane its pretty clear Netflix should be a slightly bit worried.. the most annoying part of all this information that has been released is the Launch Date November 12 this year BUT that doesn’t mean Australia is getting it on that date and there’s nothing clear on when we will get it, at the investor event they said some territories won’t get it till 2021!
So hopefully in the coming few months we will find out more including the release date for us but fingers crossed its around November aswell.
