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.

One of the great advantages of Disney+ over competing streaming services is its affordability at just seven bucks per month. But come next spring, customers in the United States will be paying eight instead of seven bucks for their monthly subscription.
