Disney+ has had a good run so far especially with its release of WandaVision, Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Raya and the Last Dragon on its subscription platform. With the well-received shows and films coming one after another, it is not surprising to know that the streaming service has reached 100 million subscribers earlier this month.
Looking to make the best of the content rollout, Disney is looking to recoup its investment in the service as soon as possible.
The fastest path forward would be bumping up the price of user’s subscriptions on 26 March 2021.
This is how it would look like moving forward –
|Product||Current Price (US$)||Price as of 26 March (US$)|
|Disney+ Monthly Subscription||$6.99||$7.99|
|Disney+ Annual Subscription||$69.99||$79.99|
According to the streaming service, new and existing monthly account holders will be subject to the new prices on their first billing after 26 March. A tip to save more would be to sign up for the yearly subscription before the price increases, as new prices will only take effect once the membership renews the following year.
From now till 26 March there’s actually a really small window to jump on the service. And, it only really makes the most sense and value to gather friends and family and opt for an annual package.
As Disney+ releases new content, especially so with the recent announcement for Black Widow, now is the best time more than ever to sign up for a membership.
So if you’re still sitting on the fence on a yearly Disney+ subscription, there’s some form of urgency to lock in those prices for a service you might be enjoying. For other regions of the world, as launches progressively roll out, such hikes should be a norm moving forward.
