Disney+ aims to compete directly with other streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video.

What Is There to Watch?

Upon release there are over 500 films and 7500 episodes of TV series. Whilst this is considerably less content than Netflix, who has an average library size of around 5800 titles, depending on your viewing region, if you are a fan of Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, The Simpsons and National Geographic you will find more than enough content to keep you entertained.

  • Disney (Bambi, The Lion King, Frozen)

  • Marvel (Avengers Endgame, Thor Ragnorok, Iron Man)

How Much Does Disney+ Cost?

Disney+ is a paid subscription based service. Disney+ costs $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year in the US and £5.99 per month or £59.99 per year in the UK.

This is less expensive when compared to Netflix’s $8.99 basic monthly package ($15.99 for the premium version), however, Netflix boasts a library size of between 5000 and 6000 titles, depending on the region that you live in.
