Disney+ Drives Changes in Streaming Industry

   Many of us may know about the upcoming streaming service Disney+, but what exactly is Disney+? 

     Disney+ is Disney’s new streaming service that allows you to stream all Walt Disney Studios productions such as “The Lion King,” “Aladdin,” and “Toy Story 4” for $6.99 a month. Disney+ has partnered with multiple other streaming services such as Hulu and ESPN+. 

     Many people may say that the new Disney+ streaming service can be a problem for Netflix. Why? Netflix is one of the leading and most known streaming services in the United States and costs about $13 a month. Disney+ is $7 a month and $70 a year, so people can save money by using Disney+ instead.

     Disney+ doesn’t just have Disney movies; it also includes Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar, and National Geographic. So far, Disney+ has only been confirmed to be on Roku and PlayStation 4. 

     Disney+ could be the future for Disney because most people no longer have cable TV or antenna TV–many people stream television programming instead. 

     With this new streaming service, many more students can enjoy Disney and some favorite movies. 

     Freshman Donnie Stanton commented: “I think it would be a good idea to include that because we can see all Disney movies in one collection with all of the old time movies.” 

     Disney+ is set to release in November of 2019.
