You would probably want to switch over or get a new subscription to Verizon soon. But that may or may not actually help you out though. The reason for the same, however, is that Verizon and Disney unveiled a special deal recently that included to give the phone giant's wireless and Internet customers a year of Disney+ for free from Nov. 12.
That's pretty great, isn't it? According to a report in The Hollywood Reporter, the offer of 12 months of Disney+ on Verizon will apply to the phone giant's wireless unlimited customers and new Fios Internet and 5G home Internet customers. Set to launch Nov. 12, the Disney+ streamer will provide movies and shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and more. "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,” said Verizon Chairman and CEO Hans Vestberg in a statement.
Verizon competitor AT&T owns WarnerMedia, which is set to launch its own streaming service HBO Max. And Apple is offering customers who buy a new device a year of Apple TV+ for free after that streaming service launches Nov. 1.
"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,” added Kevin Mayer, chairman, direct-to-consumer and international at The Walt Disney Company in his own statement.
