Disney’s huge new streaming service, Disney Plus, is almost here.

On November 12, Disney will roll out its Plus service to the US, Canada, and the Netherlands, adding Australia and New Zealand one week later, and more countries later on. It costs $6.99 a month, or $69.99 a year, though Disney is offering a discount that brings the cost down to around $4 a month if you sign up for three years before September 2.

Disney is promising the ability to stream Disney movies and TV shows, Marvel and Pixar movies, shows from National Geographic, the entirety of "The Simpsons," everything Star Wars, plus a bunch of original shows — like the revival of Disney Channel’s Lizzie McGwire starring Hilary Duff and the documentary series "The World According to Jeff Goldblum."

But what is it actually going to be like to use Disney Plus? The Streamable, a website that provides in-depth testing for streaming services and phone plans, attended Disney’s D23 Expo earlier this month and filmed the company’s walkthrough of Disney Plus on an Apple TV, posting the results to YouTube. Thanks to The Streamable and Disney, we have a good idea of what to expect when Disney Plus launches later this year.

Here’s what you’ll see when you boot up Disney Plus for the first time.
