Disney+ to Feature One-Time Starz Ad for New Subscribers

Disney+ launches next week and we’re now learning the service will carry a one-time promotion for Starz.

Originally, it was said to be ad-free.

According to CNBC, Disney will show the promotion after the sign-up process. Subscribers after the Nov. 12 launch will see the promotion only once. Those who subscribe before the launch will not see the promotion, and no subscribers will see any ads while watching programs, the a Disney spokesperson said.

In the past, Disney has tapped revenue by signing costly licensing deals with TV channels and streaming services such as Netflix and Starz that allows those companies to show Disney-made movies. The Disney movies licensed to Starz includes Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which will be available for streaming when Disney+ launches.

Representatives from Starz were not immediately available for comment.

Disney+ launches November 12th.
