Celebrating Monday's announcement about the global rollout plans for Disney+, the company's new direct-to-consumer streaming service, Disney engaged in a winking conversation with itself across multiple Twitter accounts.

The rumor is that Apple wants to get this up and running ahead of the launch of Disney's new streamer, Disney+, which is planned for November 12 - and which will cost a few bucks less than Apple's, at $6.99 per month if you opt for the standalone Disney+.

Depending on the country, Disney+ should be available at launch on Apple devices, Google devices, Microsoft Xbox One, Sony TVs/PlayStation 4, and Roku devices. The Walt Disney Company's newest streaming service will make its North American debut this November.

According to Cordcutters News, if you attend D23 the big Disney convention happening this week Disney will give you 33% off Disney+ if you agree to a 3-year contract.

Earlier this month, the business revealed details of its highly anticipated bundle offering for streaming services Disney+, ESPN+ and ad-supported Hulu - all three of which will be on offer in the U.S. for $12.99 per month. The roster of Marvel-based content alone is enough for Disney+ to be massive with WandaVision tying directly to Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, Falcon & The Winter Soldier picking up post-Endgame, a Loki series that answers where The God of Mischief went after the botched time heist.

Disney+ will cost $8.99 per month or $89.99 per year, undercutting Netflix, which charges $9.99 a month for the standard feed and $13.95 for HD, and Stan which is $10 basic (one screen), $14 standard (three screens) and $17 for premium (four, HD).

Apple's Former Siri Head Is Joining Microsoft as CVP of Technology
Stasior will be joining the company officially later this month, but it's worth noting that he didn't come straight from Apple. Bill Stasior , who led Apple's Siri efforts for several years, has joined Microsoft to lead an AI group under CTO Kevin Scott.

The service will launch in Canada and the Netherlands in tandem with the United States launch on November 12.

In an official statement, Disney announced the launch date of its upcoming Disney+ subscription service. The service will be split into different segments-for Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and ESPN (as part of a further deal with Hulu).

As we come to terms with Disney taking over movie theaters, we can now invite our Mouse overlords into our homes with Disney+, a streaming service that is going to be filled with all the Disney titles we know and love.

The only major device missing here is Amazon Fire, which isn't that much of an issue here in Australia.

More competition is on the way however, with Apple set to launch its streaming service Apple TV+ by the end of the year. On the plus side, Disney+ won't charge you extra to access the best video quality you can get.
