"I will have more product that will travel successfully in markets around the world that as a percentage of our total product than they will," Disney CEO Bob Iger told analysts at a recent media conference, referring to Netfiix. On Monday, Disney said it aims to launch "in most major global markets" within two years. 

The $6.99 per month Disney+ subscription will include content from Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, NatGeo and others. On Disney's August earnings call, Iger announced that Disney will also offer a subscription bundle that includes Disney+, ESPN+ and ad-supported Hulu for $12.99 per month. 

In addition, Disney signed global agreements to make Disney+ and the bundle available on a wide range of major platforms and devices.

Notably absent from the list were Amazon's (AMZN) Fire TV or Fire tablets. Amazon could not be reached for comment on whether any agreement is forthcoming by press time.
