After a lot of anticipation from social media and other forms of advertisement, this past week Disney+ was released to the public. This new streaming network has anything and everything you can think of that relates to Disney. 

Many people already know that Disney is one of the largest franchises in the world, but some people aren’t aware of its ownership of multiple other companies such as ESPN, National Geographic, Pixar, Marvel Entertainment, and many other production companies. 

With this being said, my family and I were very excited to purchase our subscription to this new streaming service.

For $7 a month or $70 a year, you have access to a load of all things Disney. From old classics, such as Alice in Wonderland or Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, to new releases of movies and TV shows such as The Mandalorian and Lady and the Tramp, to everything in between. 

It also has the option to purchase a package of Hulu and ESPN+, in addition to Disney+, for $13 a month, which is $5 less than purchasing the three streaming services separately.   

After talking with my peers I have heard so much positive feedback from the service, and how happy they have been to “relive their childhood”, however a common complaint is that there is no “continue watching” part for movies and tv shows that have been started but not completed. 

However, this single complaint is small compared to the hundreds of new shows and films that have been given back to the community. 

Disney, on all of their streaming sources, is projected to reach more than 130 million subscriptions worldwide by the end of 2024, with 13 million by the end of 2020 on Disney+ alone.
