Disney will offer high definition streaming as part of its standard $6.99 plan for its new Disney+ channel, the company announced at its D23 expo.
The new detail could add further pressure on a growing list of streaming competitors, including Netflix, which does not include high definition streaming in its most basic tier. Disney will stream its huge catalog of movies and TV shows in high quality 4K and HDR, as well as Dolby Atmos, which will give viewers the ability to listen with surround sound.
Netflix's basic plan in the U.S. is already more expensive than Disney's at $8.99 per month. But Netflix generally targets a broader audience than Disney+, which launches on Nov. 12. Disney's basic plan will be aimed mainly at kids and families, while Netflix offers a wide variety of content on its platform.
Disney's broader offering will cost the same as Netflix's HD plan at $12.99 a month. The bundle will add ESPN+ and ad-supported Hulu to the Disney+ subscription.
