Disney+ has another subscription deal: three years for $5 per month

There's plenty of hype around Disney+. Public pre-orders are open, and the service is scheduled to launch November 12th. But Disney isn't done trying to lure people in with discounted subscription deals. Its latest offering is a three-year plan for $169.99. As the Orlando Sentinel reports, that's $40 off the list price of $209.99, and it breaks down to less than $5 per month.

You might remember a similar three-year bundle that Disney+ offered this summer. That was available to Disney Fan Club Members and broke down to about $4 per month.

There's a good chance these discounts are striking fear in Netflix. Disney+ will be the biggest competition Netflix has seen since Amazon Prime. Current Netflix subscriptions range from $9 to $16 -- more than Disney+ before all of the bundled discounts. And with Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic, Disney has the advantage of big names and nostalgia.

The new deal is available for a limited time -- though Disney+ hasn't shared a specific deadline. It's supposedly limited to Founders Circle members, but one Gizmodo reporter (a non-member) secured the discount. You can try for yourself at founders.disneyplus.com with the discount code PARKSPASS3YEARS.
