Will There Be Ads on Disney+?
No, there will not be any ads on Disney+. This is one of the main reasons why people are so excited for the new streaming service. No other streaming service offers ad-free content, and this is a huge selling point for Disney+. The monthly cost for Disney+ is $6.99, which isn’t too bad considering you’ll be getting some of the best TV shows and movies that have ever been created. Plus, they’re adding more original programming to their lineup every day. If you’ve subscribed to Netflix or Hulu before then you know how quickly the costs can add up when you’re watching all these great shows. Plus, with Disney+, once your subscription expires it’s up to you if you want to renew it again or not.
How Much Are the Premium Channels Like HBO?
For those of you who are interested in subscribing to Disney+, the base price is $6.99 per month. This gives you access to all of the content that is available on the platform. If you want to add premium channels like HBO, the cost is an additional $14.99 per month. This is still a great deal considering that HBO alone costs $15 per month if you were to subscribe through their own platform. Not only will your children get access to movies and TV shows from Disney and Pixar, but they’ll also be able to watch Marvel and Star Wars. The content includes original programming like ‘The Mandalorian’ which stars Pedro Pascal as a lone Mandalorian gunfighter battling evil across the galaxy as well as live action programming such as ‘Marvel’s Avengers’.
Which Devices Will Get Support?
If you’re looking to start watching Disney+ on your TV, there are a few options available to you. The app is available on select Samsung and LG smart TVs, Roku devices, Xbox One consoles, and Playstation 4 consoles. You can also stream Disney+ on your computer through the website. There’s even an Apple TV app in development. However, if you have an Amazon Fire Stick or any other Android device, you’ll be out of luck at the moment as those aren’t supported yet.
Will There Be Any Exclusives on Disney+?
Yes! In addition to all the great content that will be available on day one, Disney+ will also have some exclusive shows and movies that you can only watch on their platform. For example, they’ll have a new live-action Star Wars series called The Mandalorian, as well as an exclusive show based on the Marvel character Loki. So if you’re a fan of either of those franchises, you’ll definitely want to sign up for Disney+. Other upcoming exclusives include Pixar’s Onward, starring Dwayne Johnson and Captain Marvel with Brie Larson.
