When you see your neighbor’s beard cut… The Spanish proverb is very wise and has a saying for every occasion. In this case, after the news that Disney + raises the price and will put advertising in some of its subscriptions in the United States , we cannot do anything else from the European market than to take out the calculator again and do the math to see if it will be worth it. continue with our subscription when this price increase reaches Spain. We all know that it will and if you don’t believe it, you just have to look at the case of the Amazon Prime price increase , which also rises almost 40% next month and was a measure that was first established on the other side of the puddle.
Disney + raises the price: these are the new subscription plans in the United States
Disney+ has reached 150 million users in just 3 years . Every milestone that seems to have made fame go to their heads and that has led them to the decision to raise the price (again) and introduce new subscription formulas in their native country.
Three dollars more per month or $30 more per year Americans will have to pay for their Disney+ subscription, that is, $10.99 for the monthly plan or $109.99 for the yearly plan . This represents a rise of almost 40%.
