Adrian Weckler of the Irish Independent joins Charlotte Henry to discuss the breaking news of Jack Dorsey’s departure from Twitter and the possibility of streaming services working together as part of a great rebundling.
New in Disney+ is the ability to enjoy the Marvel Cinematic Universe with an IMAX-like experience in the comfort of home.
Friday, November 12 is Disney+ Day, and to celebrate, a host of new content is being released, and there is a sign-up deal too.
Streaming service Disney+ is increasing its price to US$7.99 this Friday, March 26.
As previously announced back in September, Disney+ subscriptions and its bundle package with ESPN+ and ad-supported Hulu are getting a price hike. Beginning March 26, subscriptions for the service will jump from $7 to $8 per month, while the annual subscription option will jump from $70 to $80 per year. The Disney+ bundle will increase from $13 to $14 a month.
Disney+ subscribers users in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and Europe now have more content after the Star brand launched Tuesday. (The service has launched in Singapore on the same day with the added content.) Shows like Grey’s Anatomy are now part of a subscription, and there will be originals too. The cost of a subscription is going up though (it’s £7.99 per month not £5.99 in the UK.)
Netflix co-founder Marc Randolph said he had “the deepest respect right now for Disney,” but was less complimentary about Apple TV+.
