Does anyone know if Disney + will be streaming to Roku on 11/12? Plus HUGE Apple TV deal 🤬

Does anyone know if Disney + will be streaming to Roku on 11/12? Plus HUGE Apple TV deal 🤬

Sorry if this seems to tend towards a rant, but the reason I ask, is was just chatting with my cousin and he said he downloaded the D+ app through his Apple TV (which apparently has ALREADY dropped). NOT on my Roku pf course, that's coming 11/12. So I pre-registered through the D+ website a couple weeks ago. I know there was an amazing 3 year deal but you had to be a Disney member or something, I think(?) (which itself has a yearly fee...at least as I understood the page, the membership wasn't free).

Anyway, the deal for Apple TV: he got a free YEAR of D+ and NOT the $6.99/mo or $69.99/year thereafter, but CRAZY $4.99/mo or $49.99/year LOCKED!

Talked with Roku support (which tbh wasn't too helpful as they didn't even know IF they were getting D+ which I thought was ludicrous) and they said they " But we are not aware of the channel pricing, as it is decided by the channel partner. "

My question is, does anyone out there KNOW :
1) If Roku is INDEED getting D+?
2) Will there be a price differential to the D+ website or POSSIBLE match to the BONKERS Apple TV Deal?

Again, sorry for the "rant narrative" and as always, TIA 🙏
