Disney Plus – Disney's hotly-anticipated video streaming service – is now available, delighting fans all over the world with classic movies and new releases from the likes of Disney, Pixar, Marvel, the Star Wars universe and more.
Despite only launching in November 2019, it already has over 50 million users.
The service offers both 4K and HD films and TV shows at a very competitive price. Not a fan of Toy Story, Frozen or Snow White? Disney also has a host of exclusives, with more than 35 original series and films set to hit Disney Plus in the first year alone. Including one voiced by Meghan Markle herself.
Here's a look at the subscription options and pricing.
The best Disney Plus prices
Disney Plus costs $6.99 a month in the US, £5.99 in the UK and AU$8.99 in Australia.
That's a pretty aggressive price when you consider that Netflix costs from $9/£5.99/AU$9.99 and Amazon Prime Video costs $12.99/£7.99/AU$6.99 per month.
A Disney Plus subscription gets you four simultaneous streams, as well as 4K – that's something Netflix can only offer on its Premium tier, which costs $15.99/£11.99/AU$19.99 a month. Disney Plus customers can create and manage up to seven profiles on a single account.
Want to pay even less for Disney Plus? You can save money by signing up for Disney’s 12-month option. A year's subscription costs $69.99/£59.99/AU$89.99, which works out at just $5.83/£4.99/AU$7.50 a month. Basically, you get 12 months' access for the price of 10.
You can sign up for Disney Plus here. With the help of a little pixie dust, you'll be up and running within minutes.
By the end of 2020, Disney wants to have 90 million subscribers. Given the volume and quality of content it has to offer - and the fact it's already over halfway there - would you bet against it?
How to get Disney Plus for free
Still on the fence? It's probably worth taking advantage of the free seven-day trial before you commit to a full Disney Plus subscription. You'll need to enter your email and credit card details. If you don't cancel the trial within seven days, you will be automatically signed up to the $6.99/£5.99/AU$8.99 subscription.
If you're a Verizon mobile customer, there's an even better freebie on offer. Subscribers to the mobile operator's 4G LTE, 5G Unlimited Wireless or Fios home internet services get one year's free subscription to Disney Plus. UK viewers, meanwhile, can get six months' free from mobile network O2 - it applies to new and upgrading customers.
We expect other retailers to offer similar perks in the future. As The Fairy Godmother once said, "Even miracles take a little time."
The best Disney Plus price bundles
If you're the sort of person who likes to 'go big or go home', you'll likely be tempted by Disney's impressive bundle package.
For $12.99 per month, you get Disney Plus and two other major streaming services – general interest entertainment service Hulu (normally $5.99 per month) and sports network ESPN+ (normally $4.99 per month). Do the math and the Disney Plus bundle works out $5 cheaper than subscribing to all three services separately.
When you factor in Hulu's library of over 1,500 TV shows and 2,500 films, including original content like The Handmaid’s Tale, exclusive Family Guy episodes, plus selected NBA basketball games, it's a brilliant deal.
And, on top of all that, you get ESPN+. The sports streaming giant (owned by Disney) has the rights to exclusive UFC fights, top boxing matches, golf tournaments, MLB and NHL games, and a boatload of original Emmy-winning content such as the 30 for 30 documentary series.
The best Disney Plus prices in the rest of the world
In Canada, a Disney Plus subscription costs $8.99 per month (or $89.99 per year).
In the Netherlands, the Disney Plus price is €6.99 per month (or €69.99 per year).
And in New Zealand, a Disney Plus subscription will set you back $9.99 per month (or $99.99 per year).
