The agreement will allow Verizon Wireless customers to stream Disney+ on the largest, most reliable network and provide yet another reason for customers to choose Verizon for the best content choices available.

It extends to certain new and existing unlimited 4G and 5G customers at Verizon, as well as the vast majority of new home-internet customers.
Disney shares rose 1.7% to close at $132.55 (102.85 pounds), and Verizon was barely changed at $60.76 on the New York Stock Exchange.
