Disney is now said to have a new, more affordable price-tier for its Plus streaming app in the works - however, there is a catch: there will be ads. The allegedly upcoming subscription option may roll out in the United States to start off with, and might cost about as much as those of its increasingly numerous counterparts from other content firms.

Disney Plus (or Disney+) is one of the most popular mainstream subscription-based streaming platforms out there. Now, The Information asserts that it will adopt a trend followed by more and more of its major corporate rivals soon.

This is the inclusion of ad breaks into the shows or movies to be found on Disney+, whereas they run uninterrupted for US$7.99 in the United States at present. However, this market is now said to be the first in which a new tier will soon be offered.

Should this rumor prove accurate, it would see Disney join other conglomerates such as Discovery, NBC/Universal  and Warner Media in adopting an ad-based model as an option, leaving apps such as Netflix as one of a dwindling number of services who do not.

The new version of Disney+ is projected to cost about US$4.99 a month, although its confirmation and possible launch date are yet to be forthcoming.
