Disney recently unveiled its own Netflix-like streaming service called Disney+.
The streaming service will greet consumers on November 12 and will set them back around $7 a month or $70 a year. We're not sure whether it will make it to the Indian shores this year or not.
According to Comicbook, the service was unveiled during its annual investor meeting and the company gave them their first look at the Disney+ app and interface.
Similar to Netflix, Disney+ users will be greeted to rows of recommended content, new TV series, and movies across various genres.
There will be five hubs which will sit at the top of the page bringing users to designated areas for various Disney franchises - Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic.
According to The Verge, Disney+ will be available to stream through smart TVs, web browsers, mobile devices, and game consoloes.
According to the senior VP of content, Agnes Chu, Disney+ will include 7,500 episodes from 25 original series, 400 library move titles, and 100 recent theatrical film releases at launch.
This includes exclusive rights to all 30 seasons of The Simpsons, which Disney obtained through the acquisition of 21st Century Fox on February this year.
Within 5 years, Disney+ also plans to produce around 50 original series.
