Trending on LinkedIn, Disney has revealed the name for its new video streaming service. We first learned of Disney’s plans to compete with Netflix in August of 2017. Now we know that the new service – Disney Play – will launch next year. That service will feature a lot of content that Disney has pulled off of Netflix, including Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars movies. It’s expected Disney Play will launch at a lower monthly price than Netflix. We’ll see how long that lasts.
