Not coincidentally, $12.99 is the same price as Netflix's standard monthly subscription plan.

The Walt Disney Co has revealed plans to offer U.S. consumers a streaming bundle of Disney+, ESPN+, and advertising-supported Hulu for $12.99 (€11.60) a month, beginning November 12th, setting out its stall in what is likely to become a fiercely-fought battle with competing SVoD services.

"We have the luxury of programming this product with programs from [acquired] brands or derived from those brands, which obviously creates a demand and give us the ability to not necessarily been the volume game, but to be in the quality game", Iger said in regards to original content on Disney+ previous year.

Speaking of Disney's streaming service, Disney revealed they will be offering an incredible discount price for those bundling its three premium services: Disney+, Hulu and ESPN. The latter is especially baffling, considering that the 2003 movie, starring Steve Martin and Hilary Duff, is itself a remake of the 1950 original. There's no word yet on when the Home Alone remake will appear on Disney+.

The Walt Disney Company announced its earnings after the close of the stock market on Tuesday, missing estimates. They already announced several new original series that should get Marvel and Star Wars fans get all excited.

Disney is changing the streaming industry with a new deal for would-be subscribers.

Disney is adding another one of our favorite films to its rebook list - holiday classic Home Alone.

"Nothing is more important to us than getting this right", Iger said of Disney's move to streaming.

Disney Plus, which is Disney's new streaming service, will offer new exclusive shows and movies, along with the vast library that includes all Marvel, Pixar, and Star Wars projects, as well.

Global availability is not yet clear for the new $12.99 package, and while there's nothing definitive to share yet on this front, Iger did add that the new package will most likely be available to buy through "Amazon, Apple, and other distributors".
