    Tony, is it really necessary to keep going on about this?

    If you need to know, I actually did post the link. But I also posted the picture twice, and when I edited the post to delete one, I didn't realize I had also deleted the link. The second it was brought to my attention, I reposted it.

    That's it.

    You have the link, now move on...

    Same here. I already have three ESPN channels on my cable system that almost never get watched, so I don't need another.

    Unfortunately no. It’d ad-supported Hulu, which is $4.99 / mo. So D+ and Hulu-ads are cheaper individually at $11.98/mo

    Is ESPN worth $1/mo? I don’t watch sportsball so not to me.

    Hulu is actually $5.99, so the total for the two would be $12.98...

    Ah. The reporting at Ars is incorrect.

    Still, ESPN isn’t even worth $0.01 to me. :)

    You can sit down uncorrected. I was off by a dollar. :)

    I get the ad-supported Hulu basically free with my Spotify Premium. It used to be $12.99 for both, but now it's $9.99 which was the same cost of Spotify before offering Hulu. I have all the ESPN channels with my DirecTV Premium so I'll just stick with Disney+.

    I pay about $26/month for Sprint with unlimited data, and it gives me free Hulu. Disney+ alone will work great for me on the annual plan.

    I could be wrong, but I think we knew that already. It looks cute.

    Disney will begin its international roll-out of Disney Plus on the same day – Nov. 12 – that the direct-to-consumer service launches in the U.S., with a push into Canada and the Netherlands, followed a week later by Australia and New Zealand.

    In addition, Disney’s Direct-to-Consumer and International group announced Monday that it had reached global agreements with Apple, Google, Microsoft, Roku, and Sony to distribute the Disney Plus app across partner mobile and connected-TV devices.

    I hope that means Apple and Disney can come to an agreement that would end their dispute about free 4K/HDR upgrades on iTunes.

    Disney D23 is this week. They are ramping up for Disney Plus full customer launch and advertising blitz. They are now all in on streaming and all sub properties are focusing their efforts on advertising Disney Plus. Mandalorian and other trailers will be shown to D23 participants over the weekend and presumably public shortly after that.
