Disney's new streaming subscription service, Disney+, launches next week, so I'm curious how many people here are planning on subscribing.

Some of the classic movie offerings are enticing, but I've already seen them so many times that only the new content has me interested. The Mandalorian looks like the best Star Wars has been since Disney took over, so I'll probably subscribe for a month to watch that once it's over.

What about you? Are you going to subscribe to Disney+ at launch or sometime later or not at all?

Personally I'm quite against the idea of individual companies offering exclusive subscription services for their own products. As such, I won't. Whilst there will certainly be some shows and films on there I'd enjoy watching I don't like the forecast for this growing commercial appetite of smaller versions of Netflix popping up and ensuring they are the only place to find particular bits of content. It feels like a slippery slope and one which I feel will harm the film and TV industry if given enough chance to fester.

Out of principle I won't subscribe. I'll just have to hope their interesting projects pop up elsewhere eventually.

Nope. I don't subscribe to any streaming service. Disney+ won't be any different in that regard.

I won't be subscribing, am not so interested in movies in general and have no specific interest in Disney enough to pay a regular fee to have access to it.

Eventually cuz there are so many movies and tv shows that I have missed from when I was younger. But first I need to wait a bit cuz PS Plus is due soonish or already went and i just haven't checked yet. I want to stagger them a bit.

I already subscribed to Disney+, mostly so I could watch The Mandalorian, but also because I made an agreement with my sisters to share an account with them.

Absolutely. The Mandalorian is easily the best piece of visual Star Wars media, and it's probably the big reason that people subscribing to the service are subscribing to the service. If you're pirating the show, you're not making some sort of moral stand. You're just pirating.
