Disney will release its highly anticipated Disney+ streaming service and a ton of content on November 12. Now, Disney CEO Bob Iger has revealed that the streaming service will allow subscribers to download and store content right on their device.
Speaking to Vanity Fair, moderator Radhika Jones asked Iger whether certain movies on Disney+ will get the return-to-the-Disney-vault treatment, referring to how Disney re-releases its classics on home video for a limited time only. In response, Iger revealed subscribers will be able to keep their download for as long as they wish.
"If you're a subscriber, you can download it and put it on a device and it'll stay on that device as long as you continue to subscribe," Iger said.
Assuming Disney+ will have a long digital life in the streaming wars, it's safe to say those downloads can be stored on your device foreve. Iger provided an example to Jones, saying, "If you wanted to download 10 classic Disney films that may have not been all available at once before, you can do that. Basically, fill all of your drive space on one of your devices and your child can watch where they are."
Iger also mentioned that some pieces of digital content will leave the streaming service due to legacy deals with other companies, but will make their way back to Disney+ in due time.
Disney+ launches on Nov. 12 in the U.S.
