Though, Apple will likely have an easier time in overseas markets like the United Kingdom and Australia, where it's already announced plans to offer its streaming service - something Disney has yet to confirm.
That's on par with Netflix's HD streaming service, which costs $13 per month, and Amazon Prime Video's $12.99 per month pricing.
"Our third-quarter results reflect our efforts to effectively integrate the 21st Century Fox assets to enhance and advance our strategic transformation", said Disney chief executive Bob Iger.
Because Disney+ won't be including any R-rated content, bundling these services together makes sense on Disney's part.
A second wrote: "Disney, don't you dare remake Home Alone". So despite an increase of 33% year-over-year to $3.8 billion for all of Disney's other films, the company and Wall Street are none too pleased.

Mexico exploring legal action against US after El Paso shooting
A man went on a shooting spree at an El Paso shopping centre on 3 August, gunning down 20 people and injuring 26. They took public buses to Juarez, crossed the border illegally into El Paso on July 4and surrendered to the U.S.
Iger also revealed plans for global roll-out of the service, suggesting it was safe to assume that Disney was going to launch in multiple worldwide markets within two years, certainly within three years, of launch in the United States, in a couple of other markets.
Iger made clear that this will not be happening on his watch, which in theory is good news for investors but awful news for people who want to be surprised at the movies. As more corporations enter the streaming wars, it's going to get more expensive, so this is a great opportunity for cord-cutters to continue getting quality entertainment at a lower price. The new bundle will be available on November 12, the same day Disney+ launches. Priced at $12.99, it will include a subscription to Disney+, ESPN+ as well as Hulu.
In spite of this news, the crown jewel for Disney is still the Disney+ service itself that will be the streaming home for Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar and so much more content.
