With the Disney+ launch date less than two months away, we wanted to dispel some rumors and misconceptions about what you’ll get on Day One. Head to https://www.reviews.org/?kbid=123489 to get a more in-depth analysis of home services and tech, including streaming TV services. *PRICE* PERCEPTION It’s going to cost $7/mo or $70/year REALITY This is pretty accurate. You can also bundle it with ESPN+ and Hulu for $13/mo. And there is a deal going on for Disney Visa cardholders to get $20 off if you prepay for 2 years, or $40 off if you prepay for 3 years, using that Disney Visa card. But that’s for a limited time, so double-check first to see if that’s still going on. *AVAILABLE DEVICES* PERCEPTION It’s Disney! They’ll be on every device, no one will want to miss out on this. REALITY Oooh, actually … It will be on ALMOST every major device. Amazon Fire devices are conspicuously missing. Can you sideload it? Maybe...we’ll see. *SIMULTANEOUS STREAMS* PERCEPTION Four simultaneous streams! For $7 a month! REALITY Also accurate! In fact, you can have up to seven different profiles, and four of them can be watching simultaneously. AND you get unlimited downloads of all shows and movies on up to TEN mobile devices. *VIDEO QUALITY* PERCEPTION Like everything Disney does, they’ll deliver an amazing experience, with the best video quality streaming can deliver REALITY Again, yes this is accurate. That $7 a month will get you 4K, HDR10, Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos … Pretty amazing! *CONTENT FROM THE DISNEY VAULT* PERCEPTION Finally, I’ll be able to watch everything Disney and Pixar have ever made! They’re throwing the vault wide open and I can swim like Scrooge McDuck through a giant pile of Disney Classics! REALITY NOT EVERYTHING from the Disney vault right away. They will have a lot. But some things are licensed to other streaming platforms or simply won’t be on Disney+ right away. For example, it will be missing Beauty & the Beast, Toy Story 2 and 3, Finding Nemo, and the original Lion King, among others. *MARVEL CONTENT* PERCEPTION There’s going to be a glut of Marvel content right away. I’ll be having 3-day marathons of the entire MCU, with a bunch of new shows to watch, and it’s gonna be glorious. REALITY They’ll have a few MCU movies at launch, like Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Avengers: Endgame, AND … Thor: The Dark World. But a lot of Marvel movies are still riding out exclusive licensing agreements on other streaming platforms like Netflix, and we’ll have to wait for those to run out before they’ll all come home. As for the original shows, Falcon & the Winter Soldier is listed as Fall of 2020, not at launch, and we’ll have to wait even longer for WandaVision, Loki, and Hawkeye. *STAR WARS CONTENT* PERCEPTION There’s going to be a glut of Star Wars content right away. I’ll be having 3-day marathons of the entire Skywalker Saga, with a bunch of new shows to watch. REALITY Alright, this one is truer than the Marvel one. Although, The Last Jedi, if you wanted to watch that for some unknown reason, is still over on Netflix. So is Solo. But every other Star Wars movie will available on day one, as will the animated series, Rebels and Clone Wars. As for the original shows, we’ll get The Mandalorian right away, but we’ll have to wait for Cassian Andor and Obi-Wan Kenobi until at least year two. *CONCLUSION* So, is it going to be AMAZING right out of the gate? Well, I still argue that yes, it is. But it’s not going to have everything you might expect Disney+ to have, at least at first. It’ll take a while to claw back some of those licensed shows and movies and get the available library looking the way we all expect it to.
