Disney+ won’t be available until November 12, but recent announcements provide a clear picture of what to expect.
Price

Disney+ will be available in a standalone package for either $6.99 monthly or $69.99 annually. However, Disney will also be offering a bundle that includes Disney+, ESPN Plus, and the basic ad-supported Hulu service for $12.99 a month, which is several dollars cheaper than subscribing to each separately. It’s also roughly equivalent in cost to Netflix’s HD subscription tier and Amazon Prime’s monthly payment option, but includes three services instead of just one.
Noteworthy content

Disney+ is going to be the home of pretty much all Disney-owned TV series and movies from now on. All Disney and Pixar animated films, Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, and Star Wars films and animated TV series will be on the service, as well as upcoming premium TV series based on many of these properties, such as The Mandalorian and Loki. It’s also worth noting that Disney+ will be the streaming home for the entire 30-season run of The Simpsons. Admittedly, the full Disney+library is likely going to be smaller at first than its competitors, but the overall quality is arguably better than most.

another article on it

Quote:
ESPN+ is the Disney-owned sports streaming platform, which carries “hundreds of MLB, NHL and MLS games, Grand Slam tennis, Top Rank boxing, PGA Tour golf, college sports, international rugby, cricket, the full library of ESPN Films including 30 for 30, and more.” It’s also now the streaming destination for UFC fights, which Disney no doubt hopes can make up for the lack of SportsCenter and other banner shows from ESPN the cable network.

The bundle will include the standard, ad-supported tier of Hulu — not the more expensive no-commercials plan or Hulu with Live TV. Presumably Disney will offer a way to upgrade to those pricier Hulu subscriptions.

Being a die-hard UFC and MLS fan makes it an easy choice.

I think I pay now more in subscription services than I did when I was just paying for cable.

I've wondered what the break-even point was for people who cut the cord.
