“To infinity and beyond…” The Disney company is surely doing its best to live up to Buzz Lightyear’s adventurous words by adding a new feather to their hat: An all-new, never-before-seen television subscription that lets you have access to all of Disney’s movies, tv shows, and more.
Disney + is Disney’s brand new subscription program that lets you watch all sorts of shows and movies you can name – all within the Disney brand. This program appeals to kids and adults alike, and it has already taken the media by storm. It launches on November 12, 2019, the day that many people have been waiting for. Let me tell you what Disney+ includes. With Disney+, you will have the accessibility to Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, National Geographic and even all 30 seasons of The Simpsons. Of course, users will also be able to watch Disney media, including its shows and movies. Disney will also be releasing new originals that will only be available on Disney+. These include the live-action remake of The Lady and the Tramp, as well as High School Musical: The Musical The Series. You can also enjoy beautiful documentaries and Disney’s old classics brought to life. All of this can now be brought to your home screen – without paying anything extra. Yup, you heard right: without paying anything extra.
This brings me to the reason why Disney+ stands out from all the other tv and movie subscriptions out there. First of all, you pay one price. With Netflix, you have to choose which price out of three you would like to pay depending on how many devices you want to stream at once and the quality of your content. However, with Disney+, you needn’t choose, for there is only one price you can pay. That price is 6.99 a month, or 69.99 a year. When you pay this price, you are allowed to download content on up to ten devices at one time, and you can stream four different shows on four different devices at one time as well. On Netflix, the lowest price you can pay is 8.99 a month, and you can only stream on one device at a time when you pay that price. On top of that, you do not get HD quality or Ultra HD quality with your content with that 8.99 price. What’s more, you do not get the option to pay once a year. You may only pay once a month. Then considering all the other tv subscriptions like Hulu and Starz, which one is especially geared towards all kid-friendly content? This is what makes Disney+ special. Coming from a person that was sincerely considering getting Netflix, I see which subscription stands out from the crowd, and that is definitely Disney+. I have already decided that Netflix is not for me, and I can’t wait for my family to try out all the new trimmings that come with Disney+.
