Disney+ to launch an ad-supported plan and CNN+ reveals pricing with special early bird lifetime offer

Disney has announced that it intends to launch an ad-supported plan for its Disney+ streaming service. The new plan will launch later this year in the U.S. and will expand to international markets in 2023. The plan will exist alongside the current ad-free plan, which costs $7.99 per month or $79.99 per year, and, presumably, cost less, but Disney has not said how much it will cost at this time. CNN has, however, just revealed for the first time the cost of its upcoming CNN+ streaming service. CNN+, which is said to provide new programming that is not available on the cable news network, will cost $5.99 per month or $59.99 per year. CNN has said that anyone who signs up within the first 4 weeks of the streaming service’s debut will get 50% off the monthly plan for life, as long as they remain subscribers. The news agency is expected to launch the new service later this month but has not provided a specific launch date yet.

How to watch Disney’s live-action ‘Mulan’ movie on an Amazon Fire TV or Firestick

Disney’s new live-action adaptation of Mulan is being made available today through Disney+ but, unfortunately, you won’t be able to simply load up the app and pay for the movie with just a few remote clicks, presumably, due to a disagreement between Amazon and Disney regarding revenue share. Thankfully, the movie isn’t being blocked outright and you can watch on an Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, or Fire TV Edition device as long as you pay for it elsewhere first. To start, you first need a Disney+ subscription which costs $6.99/month and does not currently offer any free trials. Once you’re a subscriber, log in here through a phone or computer and pay the $29.99 for Premiere Access to Mulan. Then you’ll be able to load up the Disney+ app on your Fire TV device and watch it all you want. Note that you are not paying $29.99 to own the movie, like you would if purchasing a digital movie through Amazon Video, Vudu, or iTunes. You are just paying to have access to it before it becomes available to all Disney+ subscribers on December 4th. This means that even if you pay $29.99 for Mulan, you’ll lose access to it if you end your Disney+ subscription.

Update

Amazon and Disney+ have reached an agreement and Premiere Access to Mulan is now available to purchase directly within the Disney+ app on Fire TV devices.
