Information gathered from the Walt Disney Company’s Investor Day event suggests its Disney+ streaming service, which launches on the 12th November 2019 in the US, will be available on console.
“Disney+ marks a bold step forward in an exciting new era for our company—one in which consumers will have a direct connection to the incredible array of creative content that is The Walt Disney Company’s hallmark”. Explained Chairman and CEO Bob Iger.
“We are confident that the combination of our unrivaled storytelling, beloved brands, iconic franchises, and cutting-edge technology will make Disney+ a standout in the marketplace, and deliver significant value for consumers and shareholders alike.”
The crucial titbit of information, however, comes towards the end of the accompanying article. In which it was revealed that “the Disney+ service will be available on a wide range of mobile and connected devices, including gaming consoles, streaming media players and smart TVs.”
One of which, we’re presuming, is PS4. You know, in case you want to take a break from dying in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and enjoy something a bit more relaxing.
What’s Included in Your Disney+ Subscription?
Of course, that’s only a good thing if you get a decent amount of bang for your buck. Fortunately, that would certainly seem to be the case.
“Disney+ will launch with a robust library of theatrical and television content”, reads the official statement.
This includes over 25 original series, as well as 10 films, documentaries, and specials, made by “some of the industry’s most prolific and creative storytellers.”
- The Mandalorian (the world’s first scripted live-action Star Wars series)
- Star Wars’ untitled Cassian Andor series
- Marvel’s What If…?
- The World According to Jeff Goldblum
- Magic of the Animal Kingdom
- The Princess Bride and other family-friendly Fox titles
- And, last but by no means least, all 30 series of The Simpsons
As far as the latter is concerned, we haven’t done the maths, but we estimate it’ll take somewhere in the region of 129 years to watch it all.
