Although Disney+ is set to launch on November 12, the streaming service has been beta testing in the Netherlands. Thanks to a Twitter fan, we got confirmation of several shows. Those shows will include Pre-2000s Marvel cartoons that will be in available on the service. However, before we get to excited we should note that this was a beta test. Based on that fact it is reasonable to assume that some of the content may not be available in the United States on launch day.
So what Marvel shows were available on Disney+ beta? Twitter handle @gjkooijman has confirmed the following shows: Spider-Man (1996), Spider-Woman (1979), Spider-Man (1981), Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends (1982), X-Men (1992), Iron Man (1994), Fantastic Four (1994), Incredible Hulk (1996), Silver Surfer (1998) and Spider-Man Unlimited (1999). While Marvel cartoons like X-Men: Evolution (2000) and Spectacular Spider-Man (2008), weren’t included hopefully those will be added at a later date.
Hopefully you have already signed up for a Disney+ subscription. If you had signed up to be a D23 member before September 2nd you could have purchased Disney+ for $140 for 3 years. If you break that down it means you’d only be paying $46.67 per year or just $3.89 per month. With the amount of original content being developed for Disney+ $4 per month is an incredible deal!
You can still sign up for the regular price of $6.99 per month. Even at that price point Disney+ looks to be an incredible value compared other streaming services. Let’s compare it to other streaming services. Netflix is $11 a month, Hulu is $8 a month and Amazon Prime Video is $99 per year ($8.99 per month). Disney+ easily comes in more than $1 under the lowest priced current streaming services. The service will feature content from Disney, Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar. With content from all those properties, it should be well worth the money.
