Disney finally reaches agreement with Amazon to put Disney+ on the Fire TV!
If you have an Amazon device and were worried you wouldn’t be able to access Disney+ when it launches next week, worry no more.
Disney+ will be available on Amazon Fire TV devices for the November 12th launch after all, on October 3rd, we wrote that "Fire Tv May Not Get Disney+ After Amazon and Disney Fight Over Ads." Now the WSJ is reporting that they will carry the brand new streaming service.
The original fight over Disney+ on Fire TV was due to a dispute over advertising
rights in Disney’s apps, including those for ABC, ESPN, and the Disney Channel. It’s not clear whether Disney agreed to Amazon’s terms, but the two companies have come to some sort of agreement. That means that Disney+ will be coming to Fire TV devices — and that existing Disney apps will be allowed to stick around on Amazon’s streaming platform, too. Many are predicting Disney's new service willl quickly overtake Netflix. It starts at only $7 a month or $69 a year, a complete steal from Netflix's $10.99 to $12.99 per month. Having Amazon on board is a big win for Disney and Amazon heading into the launch of Disney+ on November 12th. Amazon’s Fire TV platform is the one of the largest streaming platform in the world, which is a lot of potential customers that Disney’s hoping will sign up for their brand new streaming service.
