The streaming wars are on! For the longest time, Netflix went unrivaled. When people thought about streaming, Netflix was the first to come to mind. But when Disney announced Disney+, it made the competition tighter. Sure there’s Prime, Hulu, and other things. But Disney in itself has a strong brand and a large library of content. So is Disney+ worth it? Let’s take a look.
What is Disney+?
Disney+ is Disney’s brand new streaming service. With a large catalog that also includes 21 Century Fox now, the majority of movies and series are available on the service. For a monthly subscription fee of 6.99, you can access Disney+. There is also a bundle for Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN.
The biggest thing about Disney+ is that they have all the movies you can think of. Classic movies like Snow White, Cinderella, and many movies that were in the vault are available on Disney+. Their original shows like The Imagineering Story and The Mandalorian have already gotten amazing reviews. There so much original content and existing content that it’s so worth it. They also have a majority of Marvel movies and all of the Star Wars series.
At the moment, there is no continue watching option from what I’ve experienced. Which is a big deal when you’re watching a show or leave a movie halfway. You will have to look for it all over again. Also, I have already seen quite a few things but their “recommended for you” tab still seems to just be what’s popular on the platform. So the majority of the cons are from a technical standpoint. Hopefully, they fix it soon.
For me, Disney+ has a lot more content that I would actually watch. It is fueled by nostalgia but has enough new content for new audiences. I think it’s a great competitor to Netflix. There’s content for everyone and so many new shows are on the way so it’s exciting to see where it will be in the future. Overall, I would recommend Disney+!
