Disney+ is launching on November 12th and we’ve seen a smattering of deals for the new streaming service come and go. Now, Verizon customers are getting their own deal which proves, sometimes it pays to be patient. Verizon customers who have the Unlimited plan will get Disney+ free for one year.
Once that free year expires, then customers will have to pay the usual US$6.99 a month for the service. In order to snag this deal, Verizon customers that are not on Unlimted will have to enroll in an Unlimited plan by June 1, 2020. That’s plenty of time to move your plan over. Existing Unlimited users can take advantage of the free year at launch.
If Verizon customers would rather not pay for Unlimited, they can still get the free year of Disney+ if they switch to Fios Home Internet or 5G Home Internet services. So they’re at least giving you a few options to get the service for free.
It’s important to note that the free version of Disney+ being offered will not include Hulu and ESPN+. That bundle that will be offered for US$12.99 a month, but still, if you’re paying for Hulu now you can just keep that until your free year of Disney+ expires and then switch to the bundle deal at that time. You can sign up for updates on this deal on Verizon’s website here.
Verizon customers will enjoy a huge library of content on Disney+ from properties like:
- Marvel Entertainment
- History Channel
- A&E Network
- Lifetime Network
- ABC TV
- Touchstone Pictures
- The Muppets properties
