Verizon and Walt Disney have jointly announced that Verizon Wireless customers will have access to Disney+ at almost no cost for 12 months.
Disney+, which is set to launch on November 12, hosts a hive of popular movies and shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and more.
Verizon chairman and CEO Hans Vestberg, said: “Giving Verizon customers an unprecedented offer and access to Disney+ on the platform of their choice is yet another example of our commitment to provide the best premium content available through key partnerships on behalf of our customers.”
Vestberg added that Verizon’s work with Disney extends beyond Disney+ as the company spreads the power of 5G ultra-wideband technology to the entertainment industry.
Customers of Verizon 4G LTE, 5G wireless services and broadband services will have access to never-before-seen original programming including feature-length films, series, documentaries, as well as short-form content made exclusively for Disney+, along with unprecedented access to Disney’s vast collection of films and TV shows.
According to a statement released by Verizon, Disney+ will release more than 25 original series and 10 original films and documentaries, including The Mandalorian, from executive producer and writer Jon Favreau, and Lady and the Tramp, a timeless re-telling of the 1955 animated classic, within the first year of launch.
