- Disney Plus is getting its first price rise in March.
- The company is also adjusting its expectations for the next four years.
- Disney Plus expects over 300 million subscribers for all its streaming services.
It's been a little over a year since Disney Plus has been launched, and we're already getting the first price push. Don't worry - it's just $1 per month.
Starting with March 2021, Disney Plus will cost $7.99 per month, up from $6.99 right now. You can also go for the full year, which will cost $79.99, while the bundle that includes Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN+ will cost $13.99 instead of $12.99.
The news comes from the company's investor call during which they also announced that they are going to share some 50 new shows and movies in the next few years, pertaining to Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and Disney.
The company has also adjusted its predictions for subscriber growth over the next four years. Initially, Disney Plus was hoping to get somewhere between 60 and 90 million subscribers by 2024. However, in just a year, they've managed to garner some 86 million accounts, so they estimate between 230 and 260 million customers worldwide by 2024 for Disney+ and between 300 and 350 million for all its streaming services.
With Disney's commitment to adding so much quality content, there needs to be an extra funding source for the budget of all these big movies and series they're planning, and it seems that $1 per month for each subscriber will do just that.
