This will be the first show to EVER be live-streamed on Disney+, so it’s kind of a big deal. The series previously aired on ABC, but part of the reason behind the move to Disney+ involves ABC’s plans for Monday Night Football during the 8PM to 10PM Monday evening time slot.
Kareem Daniel, Chairman of Disney Media and Entertainment Distribution, previously said, “The show’s broad appeal, as well as the overwhelming popularity of its Disney-themed competition nights, make Disney+ the perfect home for Dancing with the Stars while continuing to expand our demographic reach.”
Seasons 31 and 32 are set to air on Disney+ and could set a precedent for future live streaming events on the service. If you’re not already subscribed to Disney+, you can do so right now for $7.99 per month or $79.99 annually.
You can also subscribe to the Disney bundle, which gets you Disney+, Hulu, AND ESPN+ for $13.99 per month.
