I have heard from people who tried it (in the Netherlands since they got it earlier) that there is not much content. So I guess unless you are a fan of Disney classics (I personally don't like watching content over and over again) it won't be this attractive right now.
However, the $6.99 will kind of disable the value-based thinking and make people just add it to their list of subscriptions.
@kaug I think we will have to wait for that. Right now we're at the end of a sort of golden age when everything was available in one place (Netflix). The trend is now to split apart in multiple services and I'm guessing it'll be some time until what you're suggesting appears.
@kaug This is one space whether I feel that competition should not be very high ( or like you said, there should be an aggregation service). If there are so many streaming services and exclusive rights to tv shows by one particular service, then users end up paying much more.
As the dad of a toddler it's an easy yes. I've spent over $100 this past year on purchasing digital versions of some of my favorite Disney movies from my childhood to watch with my son. Assuming a steady stream of watchable originals to add on to the already incredible catalogue titles, I'll likely be a lifetime subscriber.
Yes definitely and I also have a Netflix account. Unfortunately the catalog is really poor in NZ... And the equivalent to Netflix in this area of the world are terrible.
So I'm actually happy Disney+ is going live, I'll now have access to the whole Disney/Pixar/Marvel/Star Wars/21st Century Fox catalog for a cheaper price than Netflix.
