Disney+ is rolling out a cheaper subscription tier later this year that'll be ad-supported. In other words, it'll be cheaper, but you'll have to watch commercials.
There's no word yet on the exact date, or the cost. Disney+ currently costs $7.99 a month, or $79.99 a year.
Their ultimate goal is to add 230 million to 260 million subscribers by 2024. They're also bringing on more mature content, like the Marvel shows that were previously on Netflix. New parental controls are being rolled out along with that.
Disney says, quote, "Expanding access to Disney+ to a broader audience at a lower price point is a win for everyone . . . consumers, advertisers, and our storytellers."
