These days, various TV networks have opened their digital platforms as an alternative to Netflix. We are curious to know who will take over the top spot, which has been dominated by Netflix. Besides, all the platforms are on the verge of the price war, and new video streaming service like Disney+ is all set to get in.

There are some speculations that NBC and Comcast will officially launch their streaming services in 2020. Netflix gained popularity for its original series like Stranger Things, Money Heist, Narcos, Black Mirror, 13 Reasons Why, Ghoul, Wu Assassins, and much more. But recently, it has been revealed that Stranger Things is the reason for maximum subscriptions to Netflix despite the streaming war.
Disney, on the other hand, took a smart step by aiming at the top spot. The new Disney+ may get an opportunity to win more subscribers because the company has announced $12.99 package. The news was announced on Tuesday.
Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer & International solely owns Hulu and ESPN+. Moreover, Disney+ is $6.99 a month, ESPN+ has a free subscription, and Hulu is just $5.99 a month.
