@Disney Investor Day Preview: Unanswered Questions About Disney+; #DisneyPlus #SVOD

Los Angeles, CA (Variety) — As much as we already know about Disney+, there’s a lot we still don’t know.

That’s about to change at an investor presentation on April 11, when Disney will give a demonstration of its yet-to-be-launched streaming service, as well as showcase some original content that’s being developed for it. Additionally, Disney will discuss its overall direct-to-consumer (DTC) business — which includes its majority ownership of Hulu and streaming technology company BAMTech, ESPN+, and Disney+ — in greater detail.

Much of what consumers know about Disney+ centers around the content it will offer, but the market is poised to know more about how the video streaming platform itself works.

Currently, it’s known that Disney+ will be anchored by Disney’s entire classic film library and act as the exclusive U.S. streaming home for movies that the company releases theatrically moving forward. Disney+ will also offer content from Disney's Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic brands.

But details on Disney+ aside from the content it will offer are less clear. The service is expected to be “substantially cheaper” than Netflix and release in late 2019, but no concrete price or launch date has been announced. Disney CEO Bob … Kevin Tran/@Variety
