Verizon to give away Disney+
October 22, 2019
Verizon has said all its new and existing unlimited wireless customers in the US, as well as its Fios and 5G Home internet customers, will get the Disney+ streaming service free when it launches on November 12th. The service is priced at $7 monthly or $70 annually. A bundle that includes ESPN+ and Hulu will cost $13 a month.
Reuters reported it was not immediately clear how many Verizon subscribers would get Disney+ for free as the company does not share figures for unlimited phone plan customers.
Verizon had 124 million customers across wireless and Fios internet in the second quarter.
Apple plans to give away a one-year subscription to its own streaming service, Apple TV+, for all purchasers of new Macs, iPhones and Apple TV devices. The service is set to launch on November 1st.
