A+E: Disney+ Launches to Widespread Anticipation
by Alex Rotter
The release of Disney+ last week quickly became a wildly successful launch for Disney. On the first day of the launch, about 10 million people became a subscriber to the app. This far exceeded Disney’s initial projections for the first day.
Disney+ is a subscription-based service that only costs 6.99 dollars a month or if you want to pay a whole year, it would cost you 69.99 dollars a year. If you pay 12.99 a month, you are given access to Disney, Hulu and ESPN+. This is a very good deal because you are given access to two really good streaming platforms and you are able to watch sports for a cheap price.
If you want to check out the app without paying the fee, they give you the ability to get a 7-day free trial to see if you will enjoy the app. This is a very good deal if you enjoy Disney movies and it has a large number of movies from the Disney catalog that you can watch.
What’s really amazing about the Disney+ app is that you are able to watch on all devices. You are able to watch on Apple, Android, PlayStation, and Xbox. This is really good for the app because you can use Disney+ and watch your favorite shows anywhere you go.
On the Disney+ app, there are a lot of movies to pick from the likes of Disney and all of their properties such as Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and short films. There are many movies to pick from so there will always be a movie that you will be interested in. Disney+ also has all of the old Disney shows that kids watched back then. Disney+ has a category called “Hit Movies” and this section displays all of the movies that were really successful for Disney. What makes this app very unique is that they have shows from each decade. Disney+ has shows dating back from the 1920s-1930s and this can bring in older subscribers that used to watch those shows when they were younger.
Disney+ is not just for kids, it provides a variety of films that can be viewed by all. The movie series that can bring in all ages are the Marvel movies. The Disney+ app has most of the Marvel movies that were shown in theaters. They also have lots of animated Marvel shows like Spiderman, Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man.
Pixar Animation Studios also provides many short films for Disney+ dating back to 1989 with a short film named Knick Knack all the way to short films made in 2019, overall consisting of over 50 short films.
Disney+ consists of a recollection of old memories of most people’s childhood that can be relieved through one app and can be accessed through multiple different platforms. At a price of 6.99 a month or 69.99 a year, it provides a lot of value and entertainment that everyone can enjoy.
