Netflix has always had a policy with its subscribers about “sharing passwords” and how it’s frowned upon. However, the company has never been strict with that policy. When Disney launches their streaming service Disney+ this November the company plans to be much stricter with the policy.
Disney reached a deal with Charter Communications which will allow the cable company’s customers to bundle-purchase Hulu, ESPN+, and Disney+ through Charter’s Spectrum TV. The deal will also allow the two companies to crack down on password sharing amongst their userbase.
Disney+ is set to launch this November and the company is looking to share that exclusive service and content to users who are actually. That said, the service will allow you to access multiple users and devices in the same household as Netflix currently does. Time will tell if this is a hindrance to people who want to subscribe to the service.
Earlier this year, Disney struck a deal to take full ownership of Hulu. Operational control of Hulu began immediately, and Disney quickly announced new content that was planned for the streaming service. Disney also revealed the price to bundle Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+, which will be $12.99 a month. Disney+ launches on November 12, 2019. Additional details are expected to drop at next weekends D23 Expo.
