Disney+ will receive an instant boost to its subscriber numbers on November 12, as Verizon will give 12 months of the new streaming service to new and existing customers on eligible plans.
Verizon and Disney’s Direct-to-Consumer department today announced an agreement that will provide a free 12-month Disney+ subscription to new and existing Verizon customers on wireless unlimited, Fios Home Internet, and 5G Home Internet plans.
Disney’s new streaming service will launch on November 12, offering viewers access to the media giant’s vast catalog of video content, including content from Marvel, Pixar, the Star Wars franchise, and National Geographic. Disney+ will offer 25 original series and 10 new films in its first year of operation.
“Verizon customers can enjoy everything Disney+ has to offer, including high-quality and commercial-free viewing, up to four concurrent streams, downloads for offline viewing, personalized recommendations, and the ability to set up to seven different profiles.”
Disney’s new streaming service will join an ever-increasing number of entrants into the streaming market, as Apple’s Apple TV+ service will debut November 1, and AT&T’s WarnerMedia is planning a late-2019 launch to its entrant, which will offer content from HBO, Turner, and Warner Bros.
Disney will launch their Disney+ streaming service this fall, and customers will be able to sign up for a bundle including the new streaming service, ESPN+, and ad-supported Hulu for only $12.99 per month. A standalone Disney+ subscription is priced at $6.99 per month, or $69.99 a year.
Verizon customers are advised to visit the Verizon website to learn more about the offer and to check their eligibility.
