Disney has made its new streaming service, Disney+, available to preorder ahead of its launch in November.

The streaming service can be ordered at a cost of $6.99 per month including a week's free trial, or $69.99 for the whole year – a saving of $13.89 compared to monthly.

While you can simply just wait until the launch date of Nov. 12 to sign up, Disney says those who preorder will be among the first to be able to stream content on launch day.

BGR.com notes that Disney has been working to smooth out its system ahead of the incredible demand expected on Nov. 12, and suggests preordering the service might avoid sign-in issues that may be experienced on the big day.

However, those who are looking to take advantage of Disney's bundle package that comprises Disney+, Hulu (w/ads) and ESPN+ for $12.99 a month will have to wait till Nov. 12, as that can't be preordered.

Disney+ will include a massive back catalog of content from Disney and Pixar movies, to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the "Star Wars" universe, and Disney and 20th Century Fox TV shows including all 30 seasons of "The Simpsons."

New content coming to the service includes "Star Wars: The Mandalorian" and Marvel titles including "What If...," "WandaVision," "Loki," and "The Falcon and The Winter Soldier."

Subscribers can play four simultaneous streams of 4K content and have 6 user profiles. You're also allowed unlimited downloads of content so you can watch offline.
