Disney+ vs Apple TV+ vs HBO Max vs NBC’s Peacock – We Look at Which Services Cord Cutters Plan to Buy

Girl watching TVIn our most recent reader survey we asked 4,100 Cord Cutters News readers how they’re getting their content, what they’re watching, and what their plans are for streaming in the future.

We also asked about upcoming streaming services. According to the results, these are the new services Cord Cutters News readers are planning to subscribe to:

  • Disney+ 32.7%
  • Apple TV+ 12%
  • HBO Max 8.2%
  • NBC’s Peacock 4.1%

Here’s a quick breakdown of those services.


This service will launch November 12th for $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year. With viewers in The Netherlands getting a free preview of the service ahead of the official launch date, we’ve seen a list of all of the content that will be available at launch. (Keep in mind that this list could change before launch and content may vary by country.) For more information, check out this post with everything we know about Disney+.
