    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
    If you want a thing done well, do it yourself.

    I wonder how long Disney+ will stay at $6.99. :D

    Yeah, this is probably a 'teaser' rate for the first couple years to build up huge subscriber numbers and get everyone hooked, then they can start asking for more money.

    The most interesting thing is the yearly pricing of $69.99. They already agree with me that as the number of streaming options continues to increase, people will eventually begin switching them out rather than keeping them 12 months a year. Disney wants to make sure it is a little easier to keep them year round.

    Though to be honest Disney+ is going to end up being far more sticky than competing services like Netflix, Hulu, HBO, and so forth for parents because when you have a five year old who wants to watch Frozen for the 23rd time, no amount of explaining will make her understand "we don't have Disney+ right now, this is our Netflix month" :D

    Necessity is the mother of invention.
    The shortest distance between two points is always under construction.

    @slice1900 - My 'perceived value' of Disney+ is a little north of $10. I would not be surprised if it's at least $11.99 a year after it goes live.

    Or you just buy the dang Blu-Ray or DVD and not worry about needing to stream it for the 23rd time. ;)

    That could get pretty expensive unless you have kids that only want to watch Frozen, and you have to take Disney's "schedule" for when they offer stuff on physical media into account.
