Disney has officially announced plans for its streaming service, Disney+, revealing at its 2019 Investor Day on Thursday, April 11 that the Disney+ SVOD service will launch on Nov. 12 at $6.99 per month/$69.99 per year.
The company said that by the end of its first year, Disney+ will host more than 7,500 episodes of television and 500 movies, according to The Wrap. However, all of that content won't be available right away, with numerous films and television series slated to roll out during "Year One" and "Year Two," according to Disney. At launch, there will still be numerous Disney projects available, including new shows exclusive to the platform and several highly-anticipated Disney films set for release in 2019.
