With the launch of Disney+ less than two months away, the entertainment giant has finally opened up preorders for the service.
In a splashy ad during last night’s Emmy Awards, Disney announced that customers can now sign up for the streaming service, which will debut in the U.S. on Nov 12. Subscriptions cost either $6.99 per month or $70 per year.
The service will be available on most major streaming platforms, but not FireTV.
Disney is leaning into its deep catalog of films and TV shows to support Disney+. If you want to watch any film in the Marvel super hero universe, any Pixar release or any Disney classic, this will be the only place to do so. (Disney is pulling its films from Netflix, which will cut its operating income by about $150 million.)
All totaled, the service will offer 7,500 episodes of current and off-air TV shows, 400 archived Disney (and Fox) movies and 100 recent theatrical releases. But Disney’s also offering 25 original series and 10 original movies and specials, including series based on High School Musical and Monsters Inc. and The Mandolorian, a Star Wars series set five years after Return of the Jedi.
Disney might be opening subscriptions for the general public up now, but it has quietly been offering advance sign-up for the streaming service to its biggest fans for weeks. Members of D23, the Disney fan club, were able to purchase a three-year Disney+ subscription for a 33% discount.
Disney is currently testing the service in some European markets.
