Is it time to cancel Netflix and switch to Disney+? While the new Disney streaming service has a lot to offer, you should still keep your Netflix subscription.

Disney just revealed the details of their new streaming service, Disney+. Other than the Star Wars, Game of Thrones and Avengers: Endgame news, everyone is talking about Disney+.

At the minute, there’s a lot of talk about Disney+ destroying Netflix, and all the Netflix subscribers kicking the streaming service to the curb and signing up for Disney+, which launches on Nov. 12, 2019.

We picked out a few reasons why canceling Netflix and exclusively hopping aboard the Disney+ train might not be the best idea.

1. Disney+ prices will be definitely be going up in the future

Disney+ costs $70 per year or $7 per month. You can choose between two payment plans. As you know, Netflix’s standard plan costs $13 per month, which means Disney+ is about half the price of Netflix.

Obviously, I can’t say this for sure, but I just can’t imagine a world where Disney keeps their prices this low forever or even a few years. Of course, they can afford to keep prices low, but it seems more likely that they’ll get a lot of subscribers at this low price and then raise prices once they’ve carved out space for themselves in the space. That’s just how it works.

We’ve seen similar things happen with Netflix, although they have kept prices below the value of the streaming service since the beginning.

2. Netflix has more diverse content

According to a report from CNBC, analyst Matthew Thornton from SunTrust Tech don’t see Disney+ as a big challenger to Netflix, and that’s because Netflix has more diverse range of content.

Netflix is making content for everyone and every age, and they are committed to that content. Yes, shows do get canceled, but there are similar shows in the pipeline at Netflix to keep subscribers happy and give them content to enjoy.

Disney is making more content for adults now and it does appeal to the masses with Star Wars, Marvel, etc. Let’s be clear: Disney is not going to be making the next Ozark. They stay away from stuff like that, and that’s where Netflix can thrive in the age of streaming.

3. Netflix is not going out of business

There’s a lot of reports out there that Disney+ is going to hurt Netflix. While Netflix might lose some subscribers, I don’t think foresee the masses canceling Netflix and moving to Disney+.

As mentioned, there’s so much good content on Netflix. That’s not changing anytime soon, and that leads to the next point.

4. Netflix is just getting started with great content

Netflix only just started making their own content with Orange is the New Black and House Cards, which premiered in 2013. In the six years since then, the streaming network is making thousands of hours of programming per year, including hits like Stranger Things, Roma, Ozark, and so many more.

Netflix’s content creation will not slow down. They are investing billions more in content every year, and it’s only going to get better.

5. You can have both

Why not keep Netflix to watch Stranger Things and all their great shows AND get Disney+ for $70 per year?

I know it’s expensive to some, but these are the costs of entertainment. And, you’re getting a lot of shows and movies for less than $20 per month (Netflix and Disney+ subscriptions together).

Netflix’s standard subscription costs $13 per month right now, and a Disney+ yearly subscription is $70, or $5.83 per month. That’s about $19 per month for thousands of shows and movies with Disney+ and Netflix.

Netflix did raise prices this year, but it’s still a great deal when you think about how much quality entertainment costs these days. It’s $10-15 to see a movie in theaters, and it’s at least $75-100 for quality cable/satellite packages.
