It’s November 12, which means Disney+ is now available for download on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. As you would expect, the app is free to download and requires a subscription or free trial to access. It comes with a bunch of original programming as well as several other older Disney content. The debut also marks the arrival of Disney+ original show The Mandalorian, which is based on the Star Wars universe.
Disney+ is also immediately available for download on Android devices via the Google Play Store, so there’s no delay in arrival between the two platforms. Those who signed up or pre-ordered the service can try it free for a period of 7 days.
Disney+ is priced at $6.99 per month or $69.99 annually, giving other competitive streaming services, particularly Netflix, a run for its money. Disney+ allows up to seven user-profiles and four simultaneous streams per account, which gives it an advantage over rival offerings. In addition to iOS and Android apps, Disney+ can also be watched from disneyplus.com
Apple TV+ is a competitor for Disney+ and costs only $4.99 per month. Further, as a bonus, Apple offers the service free for a year to customers who bought a new Apple device after September 2019. While the catalog is somewhat slim right now, Apple will release Truth Be Told, a new original series with a stellar star cast on December 6. So it seems like the streaming wars have well and truly begun.
This is not counting HBO Max, which is set for a May 2020 arrival. Considering the amount of content that this service is expected to offer, it seems like the dominance of Netflix may be short-lived. You can download Disney+ from the link below.
