- Disney+ will increase its subscription prices in the US market on December 8, 2022.
- The ad-free account will then cost $10.99 per month and $109.99 per year.
- At the same time, Disney+ Basic will kick off – and cost $7.99 a month despite the ads.
The next price increase at Disney+ is approaching. Although currently only in the US domestic market, the future global strategy of streaming services is clear from its development. And that probably means Disney+ will sooner or later get more expensive here.
However, it is completely unclear when exactly prices in Germany will rise next, as Disney+ likes to take its time with its incremental developments. Despite its global success, the streaming service only launched this spring and summer in nearly 50 new countries.
In the United States, however, Disney+ will break the double-digit price mark for a monthly subscription on December 8, 2022 and will then cost 10.99 USD (about 10.70 EUR). From the same time, the annual subscription will cost 109.99 US dollars (about 106.80 euros). Disney+ is on track to double its starting price from 2019: At first, the streaming subscription cost US customers just US$6.99.
Disney+ with advertising: The base price is as expensive as the current subscription
For those who prefer to pay less for their Disney+ subscription, the streaming service will also launch its previously announced ad-supported subscription option alongside the price increase: Disney+ Basic.
However, anyone who assumes that it will be significantly cheaper is wrong: the new tariff with advertising will actually cost the same price as the current subscription without advertising: 7.99 US dollars (about 7.80 euros) in the month.
