Verizon will offer some customers a free year of Disney’s new streaming service.
The telecommunications company says all of its new and existing 4G LTE and 5G unlimited wireless customers will be eligible for the free 12-month subscription to Disney+. Verizon will also offer the deal to its new Fios Home Internet and 5G Home Internet customers.
Disney+ is set to launch on Nov. 12 and that’s also when Verizon’s offer begins.
At launch, Verizon customers can activate their subscription and start streaming on a wide selection of mobile and connected TV devices, including gaming consoles, streaming media players, and smart TVs.
Disney+ will be the dedicated streaming home for movies and shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and more. The platform will also offer never-before-seen original programming including feature-length films, series, documentaries, and short-form content made exclusively for Disney+.
In its first year alone, Disney+ will release more than 25 original series and 10 original films and documentaries.
After the 12-month promotional period, Verizon says a $6.99+tax charge will be added to customers’ monthly bills.
American customers who sign up for the streaming service independently will pay $7 a month, or $70 a year, CNET reports . That price undercuts the $13 monthly fee for Netflix's most popular plan in the U.S.
