If you are here it is because you want to know what is Disney + and how to use it, well then let's see together. Everything you need to know about the Disney streaming service. Disney + is Disney's on-demand streaming service offering a selection of titles from Disney's vast catalog of movies and TV series. In addition to fan-favorite movies and shows, the service also offers original content based on hugely popular franchises such as Star Wars and Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Disney Plus service is subscription-based and allows subscribers to stream movies and shows on demand through a website on computers and laptops or an app on phones, tablets and streaming devices. There is no connection between Disney + and the Disney Channel, so you don't need a cable subscription to access this service. Disney also owns ESPN and Hulu, and offers an option to bundle all three services together for a monthly fee.

What is Disney +?

Disney Plus is Disney plus Pixar plus Marvel plus Star Wars plus National Geographic, which basically simply means it's a streaming service built to house all of Disney's multimedia properties. It's essentially Disney's answer to Netflix, it's very similar to Netflix in terms of features and content, and serves as the official streaming home page for all of the Disney properties that were available through Netflix.

The main difference between Disney + and Netflix is ​​that Netflix's streaming catalog of movies and TV shows is much larger. The other big difference is that Netflix costs more. Even the cheapest Netflix plan is more expensive than Disney Plus.

While the Disney + streaming library is smaller, it's also more focused. If you're a fan of Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars, Disney Plus is the only place you'll find those titles.

Disney + also differs from services like Netflix in that they come close to the old television-style content release strategy. Instead of releasing entire seasons at once like Netflix, Disney Plus follows a weekly viewing schedule for their original programming. Viewers who have become accustomed to binge-watching on Netflix may find this return to weekly episodes a little frustrating.
