The publication didn’t share the exact pricing detail for each market and territory. However, we assume that the prices are quite similar to that of US pricing when compared to local countries. Disney Plus is currently priced at $7.99 monthly or $79.99 yearly in the United States of America. There is an additional package called Disney Bundle which is priced at $13.99 monthly.

Since its launch, the streaming service is getting popular day by day and giving tough competition to Netflix which is the most popular streaming service worldwide as of now. In November last year, the company announced it has reached 118 million paid subscribers which is a big achievement for a two-year-old streaming service.

Disney is expecting to gain 230 million to 260 million paid subscribers by the end of 2024. If it reaches this milestone then it will become the most popular streaming service worldwide dethroning Netflix.
