New York (The Verge) — Disney+ will give subscribers four simultaneous streams and free 4K theverge.com/2019/8/23/2083….
Disney’s upcoming Disney+ streaming service is shaping up to be quite the deal. According to CNET, the service will launch in November with support for four simultaneous streams and 4K included, all for the base price of $6.99 a month.
Disney+ service will launch on November 12th with support for four simultaneous streams and 4K included, all for the base price of $6.99 a month. Subscribers will also be able to create and manage up to seven profiles on a single account.
That will make it highly competitive with Netflix, which raised its prices earlier this year and has in place stricter limitations on simultaneous streams. Netflix now costs $9 a month for a standard definition plan with only one available stream. If you want HD streaming, you need to pay $13 a month, and that gets you two simultaneous streams. For 4K and four simultaneous streams, it’s $16 a month. (The company also recently bumped prices in the UK.)
Notably, Disney’s ESPN and Hulu bundle for Disney+ won’t have the same simultaneous streaming benefits. With the bundle, which will cost $12.99, subscribers will only get two simultaneous ESPN+ streams and one basic, ad-supported Hulu stream. — Nick Statt/@verge
