Disney's streaming service will be cheaper than Netflix

Disney's streaming service will be cheaper than Netflix”

So one day soon you won't be able to watch Disney movies on Netflix. The news comes from the company's chairman who revealed it in a recent quarterly earnings call.It will be cheaper partially because it will have less content, at least in the beginning. However, this does mean extra spending on subscription by 2019, even though Disney says theirs will be cheaper.

"Netflix is getting into the holiday spirit by raising monthly prices again", Twitter user Logan Liffick wrote. If it's more than $5, it's not "substantially below" Netflix's prices.

Disney is addressing this through original content that will include a TV show based on the Star Wars franchise, a new show featuring Marvel characters and a show based around High School Musical. The current contract states that Netflix can still have access to the library until 2019 and even new movies until 2018.

It makes sense to think these streaming services will all be competing for subscribers, but it looks like these two streaming services can co-exist in the same space.

Walt Disney chief executive Bob Iger has said the new Disney streaming service will launch at a price lower than that of established rival Netflix.

This means that signing up for Disney's service in addition to other services like Netflix could be a possibility, and that just means more money spent.
