Disney’s huge streaming deal crashed D23, but you can still take advantage of the discount

Disney’s huge streaming deal crashed D23, but you can still take advantage of the discount The Disney+ streaming service will only launch on November 12th, but you can already score a massive deal on it that lowers the entry price to less than $4 a month. The catch is that you have to subscribe to Disney's D23 service before going for the Disney+ discount. But a free D23 membership also qualifies, so you don't have to pay anything on top of the Disney+ subscription. Once that's done you do have to pay $140 for three years of Disney+ service. You get to save $23 for every year, or a total of $69, which is the equivalent of one year of Disney+ access. Unsurprisingly, the deal generated lots of interest from consumers, and the D23 portal ended up crashing as a result.

There's plenty of hype around Disney+. Public pre-orders are open, and the service is scheduled to launch November 12th. But Disney isn't done trying to lure people in with discounted subscription deals. Its latest offering is a three-year plan for $169.99. As the Orlando Sentinel reports, that's $40 off the list price of $209.99, and it breaks down to less than $5 per month.

You might remember a similar three-year bundle that Disney+ offered this summer. That was available to Disney Fan Club Members and broke down to about $4 per month.

There's a good chance these discounts are striking fear in Netflix. Disney+ will be the biggest competition Netflix has seen since Amazon Prime. Current Netflix subscriptions range from $9 to $16 -- more than Disney+ before all of the bundled discounts. And with Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic, Disney has the advantage of big names and nostalgia.

The new deal is available for a limited time -- though Disney+ hasn't shared a specific deadline. It's supposedly limited to Founders Circle members, but one Gizmodo reporter (a non-member) secured the discount. You can try for yourself at founders.disneyplus.com with the discount code PARKSPASS3YEARS.
