Disney+ reveals huge content roadmap ahead of US launch

Disney's online video streaming service, Disney+, is set to launch in the US on November 12th, bringing with it an incredible amount of first-party content from Disney, Fox, Marvel Studios, National Geographic and more. 

Right now, November 12th is set to be the service's US launch date, with Disney planning a worldwide rollout for all major regions over the coming months and years, with the service hoping to match Netflix' coverage by 2021. 

Initially, the service will cost $6.99 in the US or $69.99 per year, offering customers a lot more value than what Netflix offers. This pricing is subject to change as the service evolves, though at this time the service's base tier will include 4K HDR streaming and playback for downloaded videos offline, both of which are highly sought after features for some users.  

With Disney+, the media giant plans to host almost all of its content under one banner, confirming that all 30 seasons of The Simpsons will be available on the service alongside over 7,500 television episodes of shows and over 500 films will be available on the service at launch. 

When it comes to new and exclusive content, Disney has already confirmed that a new season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and a live-action series called "The Mandalorian" will be available on the service. At launch, 10 original films and 25 original series' will be available on the service. 
 

Disney+ reveals huge content roadmap ahead of US launch  

At launch, Disney+ will be available to download on both PlayStation 4 and Roku devices. The service will be available on other console platforms, mobile devices and other content streaming devices, though Disney has not committed supporting specific platforms at launch. 

At this time it is unknown when Disney+ will make its way to the UK and Europe, though Disney plans to cover all major global regions within the next two years.

It's a shame that their service (and Apples) when it comes to New Zealand will be utterly barren thanks to exclusive licencing agreements with our sole cable provider - who're a bunch of s.Quote

Many of these providers are under investigation in EU due to GEO blocking. Including Steam, Ubisoft etc. There were rumours that such effects may be opened up to scrutiny for the rest of the world too.

Hang in there. We may see everything the US gets some day. Norway Netflix is about 30% what US has. I know your frustration.Quote

Well seeing as Disney have a long standing deal with SKY for their content, Don't hold your breath for this to launch in the UK until such deals expire.




..not that I'm paying for yet another streaming service anyway, Netflix & Amazon already get my money, anything else that I want to watch but not covered by them, I'll acquire via 'other means'.Quote
