Disney one-ups Netflix with new streaming service


The Walt Disney Company

Disney+ logo, is an upcoming online video streaming subscription service owned and operated by Disney Streaming Services, a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company.

On Tuesday, Nov. 12, Disney released the newest streaming service, Disney+.

The app has gotten the attention of millions with over 10 million subscribers in a matter of 24 hours.

But not everyone is excited about the service. The former streaming service leader Netflix has lost subscribers since the launch of Disney+.

In response, Netflix has decided to join forces with Nickelodeon to use old and new characters in their movies in shows to combat the popularity and want of Disney+.

But much like the popular Netflix originals, Disney+ has their own such as “Star War’s The Mandalorian,” a “High School Musical Series” and even a live-action “Lady and The Tramp,” with even more originals to come out in the next few years.

A Disney+ subscription costs $6.99 per month or $70 for the whole year. But for the price, you get movies and shows from Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, National Geographic and all 30 seasons of “The Simpsons.” You can also get a bundle package with Hulu and ESPN for $12.99 a month.

When asked what he thought of Disney+, junior Matt Szymanowski said, “Disney+ is good and a smart idea, and I’ll keep Netflix until they get rid of “The Office,” but then I’ll just use Disney+.”

And even the Allemang family has Disney+. Even though Mr. Allemang doesn’t use it, his wife loves it. He said, “She grew up a Disney kid so now she has access to all of her favorite movies at the click of a button.”
