Disney Plus was launched just a few weeks ago and the positive reviews have been pouring in. With almost 10 million users signing up on launch day, Disney believes their new streaming service will be the future of the company. Not only does Disney Plus offer customers the chance to stream their favorite classic Disney movies and TV shows, it also offers a wide range of exclusive new programs, many of which have already proven to be a huge hit for the company. For those of you wondering what Disney Plus is and how much it costs, here are the details. 

What is Disney Plus?

Disney Plus is Disney’s new subscription based streaming service that allows customers access to stream thousands of movies and shows directly on their personal devices. The service is essentially Disney’s version of Netflix or Apple TV Plus and is meant to be a direct competitor to these other streaming services. 

What Is Available To Watch On Disney Plus?

Everything Disney, up to a PG-13 rating. Disney Plus is designed as a family friendly streaming service and therefore you’ll find thousands of titles from Disney as well as their famous franchises like Marvel and Star Wars. But if you’re looking for Disney’s more adult related content like The Handmaid’s Tale or Marvel’s Offenders, you’ll be able to continue watching those on Disney’s Hulu streaming service.

In addition to Disney’s classic movies, you’ll also find movies and shows from the Marvel and Star Wars franchises, Pixar releases, National Geographic programming, 30 seasons of the Simpsons and a slew of exclusive content produced by Disney’s own studios.

How Much Does It Cost?

Surprisingly, Disney Plus is available for the very reasonable cost of $7 per month. However, if you’re not ready to commit just yet, users can sign up for a 7-day, zero commitment free trial at DisneyPlus.com. During the trial you’ll have access to all the content on Disney Plus for the full seven days. Just be sure to sign up when your schedule allows plenty of time to binge all eight of currently released Star Wars movies, catch up on the Avengers and every episode of The Mandalorian.

Deals & Promotions

If after your trial you’re still not convinced that Disney Plus is worth the $7 per month then you’re in luck because there are currently a couple of subscription promotions available.

Disney’s Streaming Bundle Discount

If you love sports and Hulu then Disney’s streaming bundle will save you 25% if you sign up for all three of Disney’s streaming services, Hulu, ESPN and Disney Plus. The total service fee comes to $13 per month for this bundle.

Annual Subscription Discount

If you elect to subscribe for one full year you’ll essentially receive a couple months for free and will pay a total of $70 for the year. Broken down monthly, that’s only $5.83 per month, much less than any other streaming service out there.

How can I stream it?  

Disney has put a lot of effort into having their service available on a large number of devices. Here is the complete list of devices that support Disney Plus streaming.

 

  • Roku’s boxes, sticks and TVs
  • Apple TV, iPhone and iPad
  • Phones and TVs running on Android operating systems, as well as Chromecast streamers
  • Xbox One
  • PlayStation 4
  • Amazon Fire TV devices
  • Samsung smart TVs
  • LG smart TVs

It’s no wonder why Disney Plus has been as successful as it has in its first few weeks. The service definitely seems to be a good value for the price and the amount of quality content available, at least for now. Disney has hinted that the current subscription rates are introductory rates and will increase as the service advances.
