As everyone knows, Disney must land with full force in the audiovisual streaming market – with heavy power, enough to topple Netflix. Add other competitors to undermine the control of the current leader. Such as Amazon Prime, Hulu, HBO Go, and others. And you’ll have a somewhat interesting battle. And who is going to win?
Well, we’ve taken the Tech Radar staff’s analysis. It inspired us to take a closer look at how the industry looks going from here. Disney + is released only in the last months of 2019. (It one day was considered to be called Disney Play). It’s already worth that evaluated before.
Price and availability
It is quite possible that Disney + arrives directly attacking subscribers’ pocket with a price offer below Netflix. Something around $ 5.99. While the basic plan of Netflix comes out for $ 8.99 in the United States (R $ 35,40).
With different plans and screen releases, beyond reach in many countries, Disney + will depend heavily on their worldwide distribution. As well as package offerings that even include 4K programming. The attractions of ESPN + and Hulu may, for example, come as interesting temporary giveaways for new followers.
Disney + is scheduled to arrive in the United States on November 12. And if it wants to topple the competition, it needs to speed up to be as early as possible in other countries. This includes localized interface versions.
Tools and interface
For now there is not much to show about the Disney + navigation look. Other than an interface shown by Disney itself. And that looks a lot like the “brick” layout of Netflix. In this preview you can see a direct access to the most popular productions. Such as Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic.

Netflix has an in-house team that goes a long way by optimizing usage experiences across multiple devices. And it is always testing new ways for users to interact.
If you want to beat Netflix, Disney + has to offer not only what the competitor already has to offer. But Amazon Prime has a tool for viewing real-time actor and track data.
Here the bug picks up for Netflix. That’s because the current content business model forces the company to handle third party attractions in the catalog according to the licensing in each square. Hence the reason you see too much going in and out of the air on a monthly basis. Although there are more than 6,000 titles. Many of them are unavailable, according to the region.
Disney now has the longest-running TV series ever, “The Simpsons”.
Disney + must have everything that is most popular in all Disney properties from the first day. And no date to leave the catalog. This includes classic animations and movies, such as “Snow White” and “Aladdin”. And also Marvel Studios and Star Wars films. These, as we all know, are audience champion. And they like to break billion-dollar sales records of tickets.
Put in the account the longest-running series in TV history, “The Simpsons,” and other attractions that come with Fox. And you will have a source of respect. Netflix may be building its own story with “Orange is the New Black”, “GLOW”, “Bojack Horseman”. And attractions that arrive (and win) the Oscar, like “Rome”. But have the combined library of Disney and Fox.
Netflix is the “service to be beaten” with no less than 140 million subscribers worldwide and a large library – which grew in quantity and breadth due to the good use of the data captured in the platform itself, via business intelligence. This made the platform home to great attractions for documentaries and original dramas, comedy specials, children’s TV, animation and science fiction.
Netflix spends around $ 300 million with Marvel Studios movie licensing and Disney animations.
The company had to learn that the expectation of its public may require astronomical expenses, such as the licensing of series with a captive audience, such as “Friends” and “The Office”, and in productions such as “Stranger Things” and “Master of None “. The arrival of Disney + would remove much of the content, which already profits a lot from Netflix – it pays around $ 300 million to have the heroes of Marvel Studios and other attractions in its catalog, for example.
For analyst Stephan Paternot, CEO of the film finance market Slated, “Disney will probably dominate completely,” due to the strength of its various subsidiary services like ESPN. “It’s simply breathtakingly the position of ESPN (live sports leader), Disney + (an ever-increasing library of family franchises of all time) and Hulu (which gets closer to Netflix and mounts revenue slowly, in part thanks to live layers and supported by ads). “
However, Netflix has already become something very popular in everyday use the way Disney + comes to market seems more like a niche service: that is, if you are not a hardcore fan of Marvel Studios, Star Wars or animations, it is little Mickey’s House likely takes the lead from the current audience champion. But … as everything in entertainment can change, we will still have to wait for the first rounds of this showdown.
