On Nov. 12, Disney Plus will launch, thrusting the company squarely into the streaming wars. But what time should you look for all of this content to go live? When will you be watching the premiere of The Mandalorian?
We finally know, and the odd part is it was Marvel that told the world.
The Marvel Comics website launched a countdown clock to the service’s launch, and it is ticking away to 9am Eastern on Nov. 12. In case you thought you needed to stay up to midnight, it seems Disney realized that may not be the wisest idea for young kids.
The other good news is that while Amazon Fire TV devices have not been on the list of supported devices up to this point, support will be there at launch. Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed the information in an interview this week. It’s still not clear when exactly the apps will appear for download, but it may not happen until that 9am time on the 12th.
Disney Plus will feature an extensive lineup of content at launch, with more catalog and original content on the way. The service will run you $6.99 a month, or $69.99 a year.
