It's almost bold because Disney can afford what other vendors may not be able to do: offer free services to retain customers. So in the US for Disney + apply: pay two years, the third year for free.
After Disney has already surprised the industry with its staggeringly low wholesale prices for its streaming service Disney +, now comes the next move, with the rivals such as Netflix clearly declared war on. Because for the start of the service in the US now comes an early bird offer that is as attractive as it is clever.
If you sign up for Disney + until Labor Day, September 2, 2019, you can use the service for a year for free! Of course, nothing is given away in the story, it is more of a "purchase 3, number 2" offer - but it's really good because the savings are quite large. Instead of paying around $ 210 for three years you will pay just under $ 140.
DISNEY + FOR 4 DOLLARS PER MONTH
Spread over the months, that means using Disney + for less than $ 4. And of course, Disney also has something like this: Customers who have been tied up for three years - from our own experience we know that a service that you use for such a long time can often just keep on running. Also, Americans can use the offer only if they sign up for the exclusive Disney fan club "D23" - the basic membership required is indeed free, but this will know how to use Disney wise for themselves.
Whether we will be able to enjoy such an offer in India, however, is unclear. Disney may seek this kind of customer loyalty for its largest market, the US. When Disney + is launched on November 12, 2019, Canada and the Netherlands are the first countries to join, but the 3-for-2 offer is not. However, the general willingness of Disney to make their offer to the customers tasty can also hope for attractive offers and deals for Europe.
India START FIRST 2020
Both in dollars and in euros, the monthly costs for Disney + at the start amount to 6.99 - who subscribes the whole year, pay 69.99 and thus saves around 14 dollars or euros. We currently assume that in India at the start of 2020 we can expect the same price, which was proclaimed for the European Disney + pioneer Netherlands. For Netflix you have to dig deeper into the bag: Here, the cheap monthly subscription costs € 7.99, the most-booked standard subscription with HD option even 11.99.
It remains to be seen, however, whether the price war of the streaming services really pays off for the viewer. Cheap offers are nice, but in the end, the customer will still pay more than before, because he has to conclude by the fibrillation of the market more and more subscriptions if he just wants to stay up to date serial technology. In the end, the quality of the service could also suffer, because if the streaming services commission larger and larger productions for a mainstream audience to stay competitive, smaller series and films may be out of favor for a niche audience.
