What is Disney+?

Disney Plus is The Walt Disney Company’s streaming service, as the name implies. It was founded in November 2019 and today has almost 130 million subscribers worldwide. It primarily distributes Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and other major brands’ films and television shows, but it also has specialized content hubs for Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and other major names. Disney has dabbled in streaming for a few years, with DisneyLife launching in the UK in 2015, but Disney Plus is the company’s most comprehensive offering. The service was first announced in 2018 and then officially launched in 2019. It began in the United States, then expanded to Western Europe and a few Asia-Pacific countries by early 2020. Later came Eastern Europe and Latin America.

The History of Disney+

Disney CEO Bob Iger stated on November 8, 2018, that the service will be called Disney+ and that it would launch in late 2019. According to reports, a September launch was planned, but on April 11, 2019, Disney stated that Disney+ would launch in the United States on November 12, 2019.



Features of Disney+

Shows and movies on Disney+ are available in up to 4K HDR (Dolby Vision) with Dolby Atmos audio. It also supports four simultaneous streams and allows family members to create their own profiles. Parental restrictions, such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, are also available to limit content based on age.
