Disney’s digital content portal will become available through Amazon Web Service as soon as early 2018, CEO Jeff “The Jeff” Bezos announced on Wednesday.
The announcement comes as Amazon expands its cloud computing offerings to include Disney, and the company is expected to roll out the service to more of its services.
“I want to be able to offer a more flexible and efficient solution to businesses, consumers and developers,” Bezos said during the company’s third-quarter earnings call.
“We’ve got to offer them a more open, frictionless experience.”
Amazon is offering Disney a $25-per-month subscription to its cloud service, but the company will also offer a limited version of the service.
Bezos says the new service will help Disney “bring our entertainment experiences to a more wide audience.”
The announcement is an important one for Disney, which has struggled to offer the same level of convenience for its customers as Amazon.
In the first half of 2018, Disney was able to charge its customers between $4 and $7 per month for access to its service, and Amazon charges $15 to $24 per month.
Disney also released a limited edition Disney Infinity toy set for $59.99.
Disney is also launching a subscription to Hulu for $9.99 a month, with additional offers for $5.99 and $10.99 per month thereafter.
Amazon is expected begin offering Disney content in the first quarter of 2019.
