Apple TV+ debuted at $4.99 per month, and, for what it's worth, the company hasn't changed the price for the video streaming service. But, that doesn't mean the price points remain the same for the primary competitors out there in the wild, unfortunately. And, sure enough, another price hike is in the works for a pair of popular options.
By the summer of 2022, new Disney+ countries will include 44 additional markets and eleven new territories across Europe, Africa and West Asia.
You'll soon get access to both Disney+ and ESPN+ via a Hulu live TV bundle at no extra cost. At the same time, Disney is raising Hulu live TV bundle pricing by $5, which is still cheaper than paying $15/month when subscribing to the two services separately.
Streamers shouldn't miss out on a new Disney+ sale, offering a whopping 80 percent off the regular price of $11.99 per month, or just $1.99 for your first month of Disney+.
Disney+ subscriber count continues rising as the entertainment conglomerate added an impressive 16 million subscribers in the June quarter for a total of 116 million paying customers.
Disney's boss has confirmed that the company is not planning to add a cheaper streaming option with ads to Disney+ becasue the streaming service is already priced very competitively.
When HBO Max burst on the scene last year, the service debuted with a $14.99 per month price tag. But the service's owners have never been shy about another tier of service, one that would drop the cost a bit but also run ads. And now it's finally almost here.
Is Apple a services company these days? It's certainly possible to make that argument. And being in the Apple ecosystem probably means you pay for at least a couple of different options offered by the company. But with so many other offerings out there, it can be a task simply choosing which ones to keep.
Ever since Disney's video streaming service, Disney+, launched, it's been gaining a ridiculous number of subscribers. And it doesn't appear to be slowing down anytime soon.
Netflix gets teased a lot for having a lot of content, but "nothing to watch". And some of its originals are panned for, well, not being that great. That isn't to say Netflix hasn't had some successes -- it definitely has. And the streaming service dominates the space right now. So of course Apple should have purchased it years ago.
Apple TV+ launched in late 2019, and, since then, the streaming service has seen its fair share of positive reviews. Things didn't start out so bright, with initial reviews for launch shows not all that positive. But, since then, the service has shown a pretty solid library of original content. However, that's not good enough for one former CEO.
It has been a few months since we last heard how well Disney+ is doing. But, it turns out that things are still looking quite positive for the House of Mouse and its streaming efforts.
