Disney offered more details about its upcoming Disney+ streaming service on Friday during its annual D23 Expo in Anaheim.
CNET reports Disney+ will be priced at $6.99 per month and will allow subscribers to stream on up to four devices at once. 4K HDR content will be available for no extra cost.
The new service should be highly competitive with Netflix, which charges $9 for its base service, standard definition service, upping the ante to $13 for HD streaming on up to two devices simultaneously, and $16 for access to 4K and four simultaneous streams.
The Disney+ service will feature content from the massive Disney library, including more than 500 feature films and 7.500+ television shows. The service will offer the entire Pixar library, Star Wars and Marvel content, and much more.
Disney will release new episodes of its original series weekly, rather than dropping an entire season at once, Disney executives told CNET.
Up to seven different user profiles can be set up for the service. (Netflix allows up to four.) Users get to pick a favorite Disney character to be the avatar for their profile.
Disney+ will also offer parental controls. A special “kids mode” is designed for children 7 years old and younger. The mode offers a more colorful interface, with bigger icons, fewer written words and more graphics.
The service will offer original content based on several Marvel properties, including a Ms. Marvel series, as well as series featuring their She Hulk and Moon Knight characters. Numerous Star Wars series will be offered, including The Mandalorian.
Disney+ is set to launch on November 12, and will be available on iPad, iPhone, and Apple TV devices at launch. Offline downloads will be available on the mobile platforms.
