Disney is set to announce lots of details on its “Direct To Consumer” services including Disney+ during a special “Investors Day” event on April 11th.
One of the key announcements expected to be revealed is the launch date for Disney+. And while it hasn’t yet been officially announced, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that Disney+ will launch in November 2019.
Disney CEO Bob Iger has previously stated that the streaming service would launch in late 2019, which if it does launch in November, fits in perfectly. It means it should also be ready for the holiday season, which is prime time for television viewing.
The Wall Street Journal is also reporting that software developers have been told to “dial back other projects to make sure the service can handle millions of subscribers when it launches.” Which makes sense, Disney won’t want any technical issues to put subscribers off.
Hopefully we find out the official launch date at the Disney investor Day on April 11th.
