Disney+ reveals launch date and pricing for new streaming service

A lot was covered during the almost 3-hour presentation, so let's dive in on everything you need to know. Content will be divided into five brands: Disney (animation and live action), Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic.

Disney Plus will roll out in the US on November 12 at a price of $6.99 per month, or $69.99 per year. All content can be downloaded for offline viewing, and the service will be available for smartphones and tablets, desktop browsers, game consoles, and smart TVs. All episodes of The Simpsons will be on the platform from the first day, and episodes of Malcolm in the Middle will also be available. As it stands, some of Hulu's original series are already on Canadian streaming services, such as the filmed-in-Toronto The Handmaid's Tale, which is available on Bell's Crave platform.

They aren't the only superheroes getting their own shows: Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan will team up in a new series, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. To make the leap, Disney ended a lucrative licensing relationship with Netflix, which had become the video streaming home for its latest films after their theatrical release, as well as many of its TV series and classic movies.

It will launch on November 12, 2019.

In addition to the photorealistic retelling of The Lion King, director Jon Favreau has also been working on an original Star Wars series titled The Mandalorian, which will be available on day one of the service.

The entire Disney Classic animated movie collection will be available at launch: This is the news that Disney nerds care about the most. Those titles, along with the previously announced Loki series starring Tom Hiddleston, will be available within the first year of launch of the streaming service.

China's NDRC considers banning crypto mining activities
Crypto mining was top of the Commission's list of practices that should be eliminated immediately. A bitcoin mining ban would force these giants out of China or shut them down completely.

The presentation included big news for Marvel fans, who can expect to see Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany reprising their roles as Wanda Maximoff and The Vision in the Disney+ series, WandaVision.

Walt Disney Co priced its highly anticipated streaming video service below Netflix in an aggressive move to challenge the dominant streaming service and entice families to buy yet another monthly subscription. Each of the Marvel Studios produced live-action series will run between six and eight episodes. Disney also owns a controlling stake in streaming service Hulu. To celebrate the upcoming Frozen 2, a first-of-its-kind documentary series called Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2 will feature behind-the-scenes looks at the film. The show will be based on Luna's character, Cassian Andor.

The interface reminds us of a mixture of Apple TV and Netflix.
