Disney has unveiled their upcoming streaming service, Disney+, and, with that, revealed their ambition for it be on every connected screen – Nintendo Switch included.
Those that choose to subscribe will be able to watch an evolving catalog of TV shows and movies, which, the company has confirmed, can be downloaded to be viewed offline.
“As we mentioned earlier, Disney+ will have a wide device footprint. We focus on making our services available not just in all households, but across every connected screen in each household,” explained Michael Paull, president of Disney Streaming Services.
“Right now, we are securing distribution for Disney+ across mobile devices and connected TV devices, including game consoles, streaming media players, and smart TVs.
“With these device partnerships, not only do we optimize our product for consumer experience, we ensure that our service will be prominently featured and merchandised on our partner platforms.
“We have already secured such deals with Roku TV and PlayStation 4, and we are confident that by the time that we launch we will have a full array of device platform partnerships in place.”
Disney+ will launch in the United States on November 12th, priced at $6.99 per month or $69.99 on an annual basis.
