According to the Wall Street Journal, Disney has decided to ban any Netflix ads from its TV channels. This is a decision obviously influenced by the imminent launch of the Disney + subscription service, scheduled for November 12 this year.
However, other competing companies like ESPN were not affected by this decision. It seems that Disney + focused only on direct competition, represented by Netflix. The latter has no ads so Disney will not take place on the Netflix platform either.
Disney + will cost $ 6.99 a month, lower than Netflix, whose base service starts at $ 7.99. However, the Disney + plan includes 4K broadcasting and up to 7 accounts simultaneously, beating Netflix's offer. On the other hand, Netflix gains in amount of content.
Subscription services war will heat in 2020
Netflix, HBO, Apple TV +, Amazon Prime, and Disney +. These are services we will have in UK in 2020 for those who want control over their content. There will certainly be contracts from telecom operators that will include these services on monthly bills, as with HBO and Netflix.
When subscription services began to arrive it was a breath of fresh air. With a computer or mobile phone and internet access, consumers can finally watch series and movies without resorting to piracy or dated video club concepts.
However, we are reaching a time when there seem to be too many services. Considering that each subscription is around 7-10 € and each service has unique content, there comes a time when you want to follow several series, you have to make several subscriptions.
