What is Disney+?

Disney+ is the premiere streaming service from the media juggernaut. It released in late 2019 and hit the ground running with popular original series like The Mandalorian and Wandavision, and has continued to pump out originals from its growing portfolio of franchises. After Disney’s acquisition of Fox, Disney+ Star was added to the service, increasing the amount of more mature outings on the service from Fox’s range of properties (Alien, Predator, Die Hard etc.)

Disney Plus starts at $13.99 per month for the standard plan. This cheaper option lets you stream in up to HD quality in up to two places at once. The more expensive premium plan doubles that and upgrades the resolution to 4K.
