Now Playing: Disney Plus Release Date, Price, And New Marvel Shows Detailed - GS News Update

Disney has finally what its new streaming service, Disney+, looks like. During the company's Investor Day presentation today, the company provided a first look at the UI--and it bears a strong resemblance to Netflix. Check out some images of the UI in the gallery below.

As you can see, there are tabs for Disney brands like Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and others. In terms of specific content, Disney back catalog shows and films will be available, alongside new original shows like a Falcon & Winter Soldier show from Marvel the Star Wars show The Mandalorian from Jon Favreau.

All content on Disney+ can be downloaded. The service will available on pretty much every screen you can imagine, including game consoles like PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

Disney+ is just the latest paid subscription service from Disney. The company's ESPN division has its own streaming package called ESPN+, while Hulu, which Disney owns 60 percent of, is also a paid streaming catalog. During the investor briefing, Disney management said it will likely offer a bundle for all three, but specifics haven't been announced yet.

Disney+ launches in the US on November 12 for $7/month.

Let's not forget Netflix started super cheap/same as this offer. Obviously Disney is targeting mass adoption. THEN they will start to increase the price. Basic business 101....

Even with kids, my current total Disney spend is less than $8/mo.

There's nothing on Hulu I want to see, and ESPN is half the point of the cable box (Aug-Jan, rest is kids+wife channels).

I can see all these Cult of The Mouse families jumping onboard day 1, for sure... And $16/mo UHD 4-screen Netflix is debatable value IMO.

@Pyrosa: Youre still getting ripped off and should not just roll over. You would save much more money had disney decided to not take all of their disney/marvel/fox movies stuff off netflix just to get you to hand over more money for the same videos you already had access to from netflix. Consumers need to put their foot down with every damn movie studio wanting their own streaming service. I dont have to have 50 streaming subscriptions just to have a decent selection of movies. Disney makes more than enough money from all other sources and its not like netflix wasnt giving them money, this is nothing but pure anti-consumer greed and your defending it for some reason.

@ice12tray: it will be less than 6 bucks if you get the 1 year subscription. It will be about $5.83 per month if you get the 1 year for Disney+. that's a fine deal for Disney. I think Netflix monthly right now is 12 bucks

@Pyrosa: and it use to include all the disney,fox and marvel stuff making it much more worth it. Why the hell would I pay 8 dollars for 1 companies movies and shows especially when Ive been getting it for years with the fee I already pay. Screw anti-consumer movies when will disney go up for anti-trust violations already...

Has anyone heard if it's going to be made available in Canada right away or perhaps early to mid 2020...?

@asultana121x: Right now it is US only. Not really all that bad because Netflix in Canada retains a lot of the licences that were lost in the US to Disney. The Canadian Netflix will continue to receive Marvel movies for example.

@asultana121x: No dude Canada is 2020 or 2089. Canadians gonna have to wait or invade america in search of Disney plus

@doomsdayhell01: Why would you want to invade america so that you can pay seperately for videos that have been included with your netflix payment for years . Hopefully the canadians are lucky and this flops before it expands.

@lordomnius: That's only a problem if you absolutely have to watch all of the things. [Insert CleanAllTheThings meme here]

One of the benefits of streaming is the ability to pick an choose and cancel any time. I don't have the time to watch all of the things, so I prioritize just the services that give me the most bang for my buck. It's okay that I miss a show I might have been interested on a certain network or platform. If I really want to see it, I can just buy the season, like I did when The Walking Dead was good.

@TrueLink: The more companies trying to divide the marketplace with their own service the less value your getting out of each service you subscribe to. Stop defending practices that are literally against your own good. I dont want to pay 8 bucks to subcribe to disney for 1 show I might want to watch, they need to put it all back on netflix they arent hurting for cash and make more than enough from netflix and all the other ways those videos are being monetized already.

@keleusx: If Disney only has one show you might want, then don't subscribe to Disney. It's that easy. I likely won't for the exact same reason.

I fail to see how any of this is against my own good. If everyone makes the same amount of content and sells it to one provider, then that provider will have to increase their price to pay for it. Plus they will have a monopoly and control over what we watch and ultimately price. That's just cable all over again. How would that be for my good?

Alternatively, these companies that are trying to make quality content to give value to their services could just not do that. Then I have less options to watch and the existing networks don't need to make quality content in concert. This again sounds worse to me.

Competition and diversity is what makes streaming better than cable. I control what I watch and how much I pay. If someone doesn't give me enough value, I just don't buy. It's simple.

@lordomnius: Well it might kill netflix since they're pulling all of their content off of it (ABC, FOX, Disney, ect) They also now own hulu and in another article it said if you sub to espn disney+ or hulu you get all 3 so it'll be worth it.

@ccgod: You don't get all 3 for just subscribing to one. They said there may be a bundle that you can get all 3 for a single price but otherwise they are still be separate subscriptions.

@lordomnius: I hear you. There's too much content to watch nowadays, very hard to keep up. I have an insane amount of free time on my hands, and I watch tons and tons of shows but even I can't keep up anymore with the various shows on streaming services.
