What is Disney Plus Premier Access?

Disney+ Premier Access allows subscribers to watch brand new movies at an additional cost, before the films are made available to all Disney+ subscribers. 

Disney dreamed up the idea in 2020, in response to the widespread closure of cinemas. It provides a neat way to see major releases such as Mulan and Black Widow from the comfort of your own home. 

All Premier Access titles are available through Disney Plus in 4K Dolby Vision HDR and with immersive Dolby Atmos sound, making the experience as cinematic as possible.

Can I watch Black Widow in 4K, HDR and Dolby Atmos?

Short answer: yes. Providing you have a TV or home cinema set-up that is compatible with 4K, Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos, you'll be able to watch Black Widow in the best possible quality.

Disney+ titles are displayed and play in the maximum quality available through your hardware, so if, for example, your TV supports all three technologies you'll see the logos for each within the title's description on the Disney+ interface.
