The Walt Disney Company has launched a subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) service called “Disney+”. The service consists of over-the-top content from The Walt Disney Company, and is available to subscribers in the U.S., Canada, and United Kingdom. It offers a broad range of movies and TV shows. While its main competitors offer free trial periods, the new service promises to be different. Users will be able to watch original shows and films, as well as originals, for a monthly fee.
The Disney Plus app features a similar interface to that of Netflix. The app allows users to quickly find movies and shows they want to watch. It even remembers your viewing history, so you can resume where you left off. However, the service has faced criticism that its apps are slow to launch, and it is overloaded with ads. To combat this, Disney is offering a free trial period. Although this is disappointing news for many, it should not put off a purchase of the service.
The streaming service’s UI is a little glitchy, but it does have a wide selection of movies and TV shows. The service is easy to navigate and supports four simultaneous streams, and you can even download the content to watch later. The quality of the content is generally decent. Despite the minor bugs, the platform is far from perfect. While it’s not as polished as Netflix, you won’t miss a single Disney movie, and it’s a definite plus for families.
