id=”article-body” class=”row” section=”article-body”> Disney’s streaming service, Disney Plus, was one of last year’s biggest launches — one widely-followed media analyst went so far as to call it “one of the greatest product launches of all time.” Designed to take on Netflix and an emerging crop of rivals like Peacock, Apple TV Plus and HBO Max, Disney Plus is the entertainment giant’s online hub to stream almost everything it produces. That means Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar, and all the family-friendly movies and animation from Disney itself, plus newly acquired favorites like The Simpsons.
Disney Plus, which launched Nov. 12 and will begin rolling out in Europe and India at the end of March, has been a hit. In little more than a day after launch, Disney said the service registered more than 10 million sign-ups. In less than three months, Disney Plus has signed up 28.6 million subscribers. Disney Plus was 2019’s top trending Google search term, and The Mandalorian — its marquee original series with viral sensation Baby Yoda — has been a pop culture phenom.
Disney Plus even ran a Super Bowl ad for its Marvel original shows coming this year and next. The shows star the same actors as in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies and will knit their plots closely with the films.
The first to arrive will be The Falcon and the Winter Soldier with Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan later this year (reportedly in August). Disney Plus has moved up the release date of WandaVision with Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany; originally the company said it would debut early next year, but Disney said Sunday it would arrive sometime in 2020. It’ll likely come late this year. A Loki series featuring Tom Hiddleston is coming in the spring next year.
Disney Plus costs $7 a month in the US, or $70 if you prepay for a full year. The monthly rate is half the price of HBO Now and the forthcoming HBO Max. That price is also a discount compared with Netflix’s cheapest tier, at $9 a month. And Disney’s deal with Verizon gives the carrier’s unlimited wireless customers a year free.
Disney Plus is designed to be the exclusive home to stream theatrical blockbusters from Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar, Disney’s own studio and National Geographic. Disney also plugging in a slate of original shows and movies, including big-budget Star Wars spinoff The Mandalorian.
Much of Disney Plus’ original programming leans into the company’s big-budget franchises. Its Marvel original shows, for example, are going to be closely knit into the storylines that play out on the big screen in theaters. Even though Disney Plus is Disney’s answer to Netflix, it doesn’t release episodes of its original series all at once like its giant rival. New episodes come out weekly.
(CNET has a comprehensive list of the Disney Plus catalog — and when to expect blockbusters and originals that aren’t available yet to stream.)
So is Disney Plus worth paying for? All the details about Disney Plus are below, but basically: If you love Star Wars or Marvel movies or if you have kids, you may find yourself considering yet another subscription.
