Still not sure? Maybe this will sweeten the deal: Disney+ will have all 30 seasons of The Simpsons available on the service from on day one.In addition, Disney says audiences will also have access to “family-friendly Fox titles such as The Sound of Music, The Princess Bride and Malcolm in the Middle and more than 7,500 television episodes and 500 films including blockbuster hits from 2019 and beyond.”
