The Introduction of A New Streaming Service

Lately, streaming services have taken over the world of television. With the introduction of Netflix in 1997, more and more streaming services have popped up around the world. The newest service to be introduced is Disney +. Launched November 12, 2019, and owned by Walt Disney Company, Disney + has already become a top-rated service. 

What is Disney +, and how is it different than any other streaming service? Well, over the years, Disney has accumulated several companies that own some of the most famous movies, TV shows, and movie franchises. In 2009, Disney bought Marvel Studios, which owns the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), a movie franchise about superheroes that’s popular with a mass audience. So you can expect to see some of your favorite movies on Disney +.

But it’s not just movies. Disney + also has some of your favorite TV shows like The Simpsons, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and several National Geographic shows. There are even some shows on Disney + that your older siblings or parents might have watched when they were growing up. Disney + opened their vault of TV shows from the 90s and the 2000s, such as Boy Meets World, Ducktales, Lizzie McGuire, and That’s So Raven. Disney + also has its catalog of shows you’ll only find on this service. These shows include Encore!, with Kristen Bell, The World According to Jeff Goldblum, The Mandalorian, and High School Musical. 

The Disney + catalog will also include Disney live-action films, Disney animation, Disney television shows, Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, National Geographic, as well as some miscellaneous shows.

Disney + has been available since November 12, 2019, and will be available for $6.99 a month or $69.99 if you pay annually.
