All You Need To Know About Disney Plus
Right from the very first Steamboat Willie to the latest Cruella, Disney brings its mega universe to your personal device. Disney is taking control of its content before the other big players adopt it for their steaming platform. Disney Plus subscribers can browse through the entire catalogue of original content, plus on demand movies and shows too. Here is a teaser on what you can expect: animation, family films, teen dramas, the classics, and much more.
All those who flow the entertainment news will know that Disney has added almost every major studio to its media empire. Like Darth Vader, but in a good, family friendly way. Big names such as Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, National Geographic, and 20th Century Fox are now all part of the Disney and Premier Access experience.

What’s on Premier Access
Disney Plus did not merely want to introduce another streaming service. That is not the Disney way. Enter: Premier Access. This is a new concept where movies are made available on the Disney streaming platform the very same day of the theatrical release. Users can now watch new releases from the very comfort of their homes rather than head to a nearby cinema. An ideal option in the times of the pandemic. Disney Plus subscribers will have to pay extra to watch the new releases.
Premier Access has so far featured exciting releases such as Mulan, Cruella, Raya and the Last Dragon. And there is the super buildup to its next mega release, Marvel’s Black Widow on July 9th.
What are the subscription plans of Disney Plus
Disney Plus has applied its signature touch to its pricing plans too. No longer do you have multiple plans for multiple screens and so on and so forth. Disney has a monthly plan and an annual plan. That’s it. The monthly plan comes at $11.99 and the yearly plan is available at $119.99.
Both plans give access to the entire library at HD, 4K HDR, Dolby Vision, and Dolby Atmos. Plus four screen can simultaneously stream content.
How much does Premier Access cost?
Premier Access has the latest releases available to stream the same day at $34.99. You have to be a Disney Plus subscriber first before you can watch Premier Access.
How to watch Disney Plus and Premier Access
All you have to do is download the app and subscribe for the monthly or annual plan. That’s about it. Disney Plus and Premier Access are available on a wide range of devices from smart TVs to laptops to streaming boxes to game consoles.
For the best Disney Plus and Premier Access experience, try Apple TV.
Is Disney Better Than Netflix?
The comparison is inevitable. Netflix is now the standard against which all other streaming services are measured. The good news is that Disney Plus and Premier Access are a worthy competitor. Now they may have not the epic catalogue of a Netflix, Prime, or even Stan; but Disney’s unrivalled collection of movies, shows, classics, and kids entertainment make it a top choice. Plus the subscription plan is cheaper than Netflix.
