You might ask yourself if there is room for yet one more streaming service when there is already Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime and many other services to choose from, but there is!
This new streaming service is Disney+, and there is a reason why families love Disney+! It’s because it features TV and movie content from Walt Disney Studios and Walt Disney Television, all in one convenient place.
Just on the first day, 10 million people subscribed to Disney+, and the app was downloaded more than 3.2 million times.
Here is everything you need to know about Disney+:
Disney+ is a streaming service created by the Walt Disney Company, and this streaming service is on-demand and ad free!
The Kind of Content You Will See
You will see content from Walt Disney Studios and Walt Disney Television, which includes Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and 20th Century Fox!
There will be no more Disney films in “vaults”. They will all be available. There are the classics, of course, but there will also be new releases and exclusive originals.
You’ll Also Get to Stream Marvel and Star Wars Movies on Disney+
Disney now owns Marvel and Lucasfilm, meaning that the movies within those franchises will be on the service, with the exception of the six original Star Wars films, which are still under Turner’s broadcasting rights, so they aren’t expected on Disney+ until 2024 or later.
Captain Marvel will be the first Marvel film on Disney+, which is an exclusive. It will never have been on Netflix.
Disney+ Will Make New Disney Films Available
Disney+ will make new Disney films available within a year of their releases. Even movies like Frozen 2, Toy Story 4, and Star Wars: Episode IX!
Disney+ Can Be Watched on Any Devices
Disney+ can be watched on any devices – mobile devices and tablets, both Android and Apple, smart TVs like LG WebOs, Samsung Tizen and Android TV, boxes and game consoles like Apple TV 4th Gen and late, PlayStation 4, Roku, and Xbox One.
As well as streaming devices Chromebook, Chromecast, Apple AirPlay, and Amazon Fire TV. And you can stream on up to four devices at the same time.
The Core Audience of Disney+
Families are going to love Disney+. All of the Disney classics will be available as well as all kinds of kid friendly content, and this will also appeal to all Disney fans, regardless of age.
Some may be Marvel comic geeks or National Geographic science fans, or just love animation. Disney+ is a focussed streaming service, yet there is a huge spectrum of interests that Disney+ will appeal to.
If you have been streaming Disney films from other services, and you want all the Disney content in one place, or you want to stream movies and other content from Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic or 20th Century Fox, then Disney+ is for you!
And once Disney+ has its own content on the platform, you won’t be able to see it anywhere else.
