With The Punisher set to release on Netflix in just one week, it will still go ahead as planned, but for future seasons of the other shows, you're going to have to subscribe to Disney's service. As most of you are aware, Netflix now costs anywhere between $7.99 and $13.99 a month to stream an array of studio content including the service's original series and films.

As part of its plans to create a brand new streaming platform to rival the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime, Disney has also revealed it will be producing brand new original content. Right now - much like that juicy Star Wars info dump we're still processing - it's anyone's guess.

Such a service would include Disney's enormous catalogue of beloved films, as well as decades-worth of TV series made for the Disney Channel and films from Marvel, LucasFilm and Pixar.

Sadly, what we don't yet know is whether or not this service will be offered to cord cutters or those with existing cable packages.

Iger said the service will use Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars content but that everything has to adhere to Disney's G-rated standards and filtering features will be available for parents letting their kids use the service.

Disney shares rose 2% to $102.68 before financial results were released late Thursday, and they were up slightly in after-hours trading. It would make sense that we would get more details at those times.

Disney plans to price its streaming service below what Netflix charges based on the fact that it will have less content initially, Iger said.

There are no details whatsoever regarding what either series will be about, but both are expected to debut before the end of 2019, soon after Disney launches their new service. The new series that was announced today is unlikely to be based on the abandoned Underworld project. Deadline reports the company is developing new TV shows for their upcoming digital streaming service.

It's unclear how this will affect DisneyLife, Disney's own subscription service in the United Kingdom - where you cannot only watch the studio's movies and TV shows on demand and streamed to phones, tablets, computers, and TVs, as well as gain access to an extensive library of eBooks, audio books, and music.

The service will launch in the US. The basic plan of Netflix is $7.99, but if you want HD it costs $10.99.
