Verizon has announced that it has partnered with Disney to give 12 months of free Disney+ access to all new and existing customers of Verizon wireless unlimited, new Fios Home Internet, and 5G Home Internet. Disney+ is up against other video streaming products such as Netflix. Disney+ will launch on November 12 with more than 25 original series including the Star Wars series The Mandalorian.
Under the deal, Verizon customers will need to activate their Disney+ subscription but once that’s done, streaming content will be available on a plethora of devices including mobiles, game consoles, smart TVs, streaming media players, and the web – as long as you’re not running Linux.
Commenting on the deal, Verizon Chairman and CEO, Hans Vestberg, said:
“Giving Verizon customers an unprecedented offer and access to Disney+ on the platform of their choice is yet another example of our commitment to provide the best premium content available through key partnerships on behalf of our customers. Our work with Disney extends beyond Disney+ as we bring the power of 5G Ultra Wideband technology to the entertainment industry through exciting initiatives with Disney Innovation Studios and in the parks.”
Meanwhile, Kevin Mayer, Chairman, Direct-to-Consumer & International, The Walt Disney Company, said:
“The launch of Disney+ kicks off a new era of streaming for The Walt Disney Company, bringing nearly a century’s worth of content from our iconic studios to consumers directly. We’re excited to share this moment with Verizon and bring Disney+ to the millions of customers across its award-winning wireless network.”
