Disney +: cost of the streaming service

Disney + is cheaper than the competition from Netflix & Co. For example, the service costs 6.99 euros per month or 69.99 euros in the annual package.

As the media group announced in August 2017, Disney will withdraw its content from Netflix (and other streaming providers) in 2019 and build its own video-on-demand services with the majority stake in the streaming company BAMTech . Disney + launched in the U. S., Canada, and the Netherlands on November 12, 2019. In Germany it started just over 4 months later, on March 24, 2020.


Iger previously justified the lower price with the fact that Disney has a wide range of offers, but would still offer less content overall - accordingly, the costs for end customers should also be lower. In addition, they just wanted to "attract as many customers as possible at the start of the service," explains Iger.

Disney + content

You can read what content is available to start on Disney + here: Disney + - an overview of all series and films of the streaming service. At the presentation at Walt Disney Studios (Burbank) on April 11, 2019, Disney CEO, Robert "Bob" Iger, already presented the finalized plans for the planned streaming service Disney Plus (Disney +). Disney plans to launch 10 new films and 25 new series exclusively on its own video-on-demand platform in the first year of the streaming service.

The initially exclusive content of the Disney streaming service includes "The Mandalorian", a live action series from the "Star Wars" universe, TV series for "Monster AG" and "High School Musical" and a Marvel series "Loki". Furthermore, currently unknown film projects are planned.

The future blockbusters will also be released exclusively on Disney + after their appearance in the cinema. Among other things, “Toy Story 4”, “Avengers: Endgame”, “Frozen 2”, “Star Wars: Episode IX” and the real film version of “The Lion King” will not be made available on competing streaming platforms for the time being.

In addition to the new and partly exclusive productions by Walt Disney itself, content from Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm and National Geographic will also be found on the service.


With the acquisition of 21st Century Fox by Disney, the company also has the rights to "The Simpsons", "Family Guy", "Homeland" and many other series and films. All Fox productions will not be seen on Disney + due to their focus on family-friendly content. The 30 seasons of the yellow Springfield family are also available in the streaming service program

Disney will show the films and series that are aimed more at an adult audience on the streaming provider “Hulu”, which is not available in this country. After the acquisition of 21st Century Fox, Disney owns a total of 60 percent of the successful US streaming service.

No dedicated streaming service for Marvel & Star Wars

In 2017, there was still the consideration that one differentiates between the different offers from Disney and thus offers several streaming services. As Bob Iger explained at the time, the films and series by Marvel and Lucasfilm could be offered as separate services or additional packages and could not be included in the Disney + streaming service.

In order not to fragment the market even further, and since the Marvel and Star Wars films still fit in with the family-friendly orientation, it was probably decided against this step. So the superheroes and space travelers are part of Disney +.
