Disney vs. Netflix

Email sent: Nov 12, 2019 9:56 am

Is this your brand on Milled? You can claim it.

Disney’s standalone streaming service Disney+ is HERE. Starting today, folks in the U.S., Canada and the Netherlands can tap into Disney’s vault of animated classics, TV shows, and new originals, as well as content from Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic. 🎉 The streaming service plans to expand to the UK, Germany, Italy, France and Spain on March 31st, 2020, and different content will be available in different countries (like Netflix). A slew of services have entered the streaming arena lately, including HBO Max, NBC’s Peacock and Apple TV Plus. While some may be hesitant to add yet another streaming service to their life, Disney holds a certain legacy power over viewers. For families with children, it’s a gold mine. For everyone else, Disney movies are the best form of nostalgia. FYI: Disney+ will run you $6.99 per month. 👀 Some initial thoughts from the PH community: “I think what's interesting is that their relatively limited catalog (compared to Netflix) is an advantage for them, as I suspect their viewers repeat view a lot.” - Steven “I like the quality over quantity approach! I also wonder how fast movies will show up on Disney+ after being shown in the theaters.” - Elena “While I'm not super excited about having yet another separate streaming service, I do think that this one has a good price and offering. I just hope they don't keep anything in the Disney vault and actually make their full catalog eventually available.” - Jake Will you pay for Disney+? P.S. If you’re not into paying for streaming services at all, try Pluto.TV for a free way to flip through channels. 📺
