Looking for a streaming service that would do the trick better than any other? One that would bring TV entertainment without the hassle of installation and all, so you can get going right after subscription? Well, if you thirst for quality TV, who could give you that better than The Walt Disney Company? And, what could be a better OTT option than one of the most recent top rated ones. Yes. You guessed it right. We’re talking about Disney Plus!

 

What is Disney Plus?

Disney Plus is an ad-free American subscription-based streaming service where you can watch your favorite Disney content—from the Walt Disney Studios and Walt Disney Television. The service features a wide range of shows and movies from Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic as well.

Owned by The Walt Disney Company, this service offers a massive library of great content for people of all ages. The service bagged 10 million subscribers by the end of the first day of its launch. And, in about a years time this number has exploded to 86.8 million worldwide. Besides the U.S., Disney Plus is available in Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand too.

The OTT streaming service was much appreciated for its library of content at launch. It is believed, Disney Plus has about 7k shows and 500 films—inclusive of originals from the Disney Channel and Freeform. Eventually, the service aims to host the entire Disney film library along with content that is kept safe in the “Disney Vault”. And, also plans to tap into original unscripted content that holds the ability to engage a wider audience. With more content flowing into its library, the service sure holds great promise for avid TV watchers. So, whether or not you are a Disney fan, investing in this service can turn out to be great for you and your family.  

 

How Much Is Disney Plus?

With that said, the thing is there is no contract that you need to sign with a Disney Plus subscription. And, the monthly subscription does not cost you a fortune either. So you can always sign up for one month at $6.99—check out the factors that matter the most to you in a streaming service, and once you have assessed you can discontinue or carry on with your Disney Plus subscription. Also, you can choose to go for an annual subscription, and pay $69.99 for 12 months—which would save you nearly $14 annually, and give you 24/7/365 access to the best from the world of televisual entertainment. 

 

Does Disney Plus Offer a Free Trial?

Disney offered a seven-day FREE trial to new subscribers for about 6 months after its universal launch. But the free trial option is no longer available in regions other than where the service is new. So in the U.S., U.K. and any other country where the service has established itself, the option to bag a FREE trial is not possible. But, in Japan where it was introduced this summer, new customers were able to check the service with a FREE trial. In Indonesia too, the service launched with an offer to watch several movies FREE for a limited time.

Disney believes the subscription fee has been set at an “attractive price-to-value position”, albeit they say they would continue to evaluate different promotional offers as the service grows—meaning if you stay on the look out, you may just land a great promo deal on your Disney subscription.

 

What Does a Disney Plus Bundle Have in Store for You?

Disney Plus comes with some great bundling offers too—a smart move on part of Disney for sure. For $12.99 per month you can subscribe to Disney , Hulu and ESPN to get yourself a great mix of shows, movies and sports. Which is quite a bargain indeed, because it saves you nearly $6 a month. So if your family has a diverse taste in TV entertainment, access to Disney Plus, ESPN , and Hulu means that you have pretty much something for everyone in the family—for under $15 that is!

 

So, Is Disney Plus Really Worth It?

As we said, at launch the streaming service was received well in terms of its content library. Albeit, it did attract some criticism for technical glitches—which Disney attributed more so to “demand exceeding expectation”. But, with over a year gone by, and millions of subscriptions under its belt, you can now feel more confident about a Disney Plus subscription.

Disney Plus comes with a user-friendly interface which may feel a little too barren or straightforward relative to Netflix, but then Disney wanted user experience to be “simple, elegant and easy—without the product getting in the way of the content”. The best part is device compatibility—besides smartphones and tabs you can stream on many other devices—for instance, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Apple TV, Samsung Smart TV, Roku, Xbox Series X/S—and you can also stream via the web on your PC or Mac.

As for content, without a doubt, Disney Plus gets you access to the fountain house of the most rich TV content created in the U.S. entertainment industry under The Walt Disney Company. And, you even get to watch exclusive streams of Disney films—as was the case with Captain Marvel, Dumbo (2019) and Avengers: Endgame—the first theatrically released Disney films to stream exclusively on Disney Plus. Variety of fresh content is something that you can bank on with the service. Because Disney Plus is intended to showcase almost everything Disney creates—and act as the exclusive home for streaming theatrical blockbusters from Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel and Disney’s own studios.

The high-profile streaming service is very significant a development for Disney as a company. So much so, Disney forsake the millions of dollars Netflix was paying the company to stream its blockbuster movies. From the looks of it Disney is all set to make sure Disney Plus turns out to be a worthwhile bet in the realm of OTT streaming—and so can you!

 

Comparing Disney Plus and Other Major Streaming Services

Although the Disney Plus library of movies and TV series isn’t as large as that of Prime Video or Netflix, the service was aimed to focus on Disney content—of which there is simply loads. Plus, most of its content is family-friendly which makes the deal even sweeter.

Amazon Prime boasts the biggest selection of movies and shows, and takes pride in showcasing the most high-rated movies (7.5 IMDb rating or higher). While Netflix and Hulu carry the most high-rated TV shows (8.0 IMDb rating or higher). But, given the size of the Disney Plus library at launch, and the fact the service has access to the source of the best in TV entertainment, it is not unlikely that with more time Disney Plus will come to stand atop. Streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Hulu have been around for too long to make it a fair comparison at this point in time. But for the sake of it, lets take a quick look at the features that come along each of these streaming services.

Disney Plus allows you to the most number of user profiles. This is where you can customize your watchlist according to your taste, and get viewing recommendations as per your unique interests. You can stream 4 shows at once—and you can view downloaded content on up to 10 devices. For streaming 4 shows at a time via Netflix, you are required to pay $17.99 per month. While Netflix also limits offline viewing to 4 devices. Moreover, Disney gives you the permission to download any number of titles unlike its counterparts.

The best part is Disney Plus despite its cheap subscription cost does not let a single ad in your sight. All in all, a one-stop-shop for Disney content at less than $10 a month is a bargain deal, more so when compared to the other leading streaming services.
