While the American public is the first to be able to take advantage of the subscription streaming offer, Disney + does not arrive until spring in Europe. In France, a first date announced a launch for March 24. Due to concerns about the saturation of the Internet, it was finally on April 7, 2020 at midnight that Disney + was launched in France.
Disney + offers lower prices than its main competitor, Netflix. Good news for subscribers who may consider Disney + as a complementary application to the streaming giant. In France, the Disney + subscription is set at a price of € 6.99 per month. The annual subscription is more attractive since it costs € 69.99 (i.e. two months free) instead of € 83.88 / year.
