Everything You Need to Know About Disney’s New Streaming App
When Will it Be Released?
Right now, we know that Disney plans to release this service in 2019. Disney announced this streaming service in 2017 after a year of speculation that they would release it. We expect it to be an app that can be played on most devices, as well as popular TV boxes. This will rival all other streaming apps and help reduce the barriers to viewing content from Disney.
What Will It Have?
We can expect that it will have almost all, if not all, Disney content available. This includes all of the classic Disney/Pixar movies, all of the classic Disney channel TV shows, and even new original movies and series. Classic Disney shows like The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, Phil of the Future, Hannah Montana, The Proud Family, Lizzie McGuire, That’s So Raven, Kim Possible, and The Wizards of Waverly Place will likely be on the new platform.
This may be the only place to view Disney content once this service is completed. Once its up Disney will likely pull all of their other content from rival streaming services. It also seems that the Disney contracts on these services will miraculously run out at around the time this platform is said to be released.
With all of this content included, you’re probably expecting their to be a hefty price tag. Luckily that is not the case. Many rumors say that it will be under $10 per month, and possibly even cheaper. Some even speculate that it could be free and ad supported. And there are others who say both will be options. Knowledge of this is limited right now, but either way, it sounds like this streaming service will be a great deal.
While it is an app with family friendly content, some parents might want to restrict certain content. Some are worried younger kids could view movies made for older people. Some rumors indicate that there will be a parental blocker constructed for the utmost ease-of-use as to avoid this possibility.
Since this streaming service will be built for kids (as well as adults who want to feel nostalgia), the platform will have to be easy to use and yet cator to two age groups. The usability of this streaming service is most likely what is taking so long for it to be released. Designing a new platform with all of the features and content while catering to these diverse age groups will take work.
In conclusion, this new Disney service is sure to be a hit. With rumors of classic movies and even new shows, many think that this could be the next major streaming service. After all, Disney has a lot of content out there, and also owns ABC and everything released through them. This is the first time a major production company has decided to dip into the streaming industry and we are sure that it won’t disappoint.
