Disney Plus has become one of the most popular streaming services. It has a huge range of movies, shows and documentaries for small and big people alike – and the content is varied enough to keep you entertained no matter your television preferences.
While Disney Plus is jammed full of mega-famous franchises, like Star Wars, The Simpsons and Marvel, it gets even better than that. This streaming platform also boasts lots of brilliant titles from big names like Pixar, 21st Century Fox, Lucasfilm, National Geographic, Blue Sky Studios and, of course, Disney. It also boasts films soon after release, including current Oscar-favourite The Banshees of Inisherin.
Worried about exhausting the Disney library? Don't fret, as new shows and movies are added every single week. We think it's one of the best value streaming services because of its variety and ever-expanding library.

Is Disney Plus worth it?
We certainly think it is, and we expect you're probably already fairly convinced by the details about the shows available. Disney Plus will set you back from $7.99 / £7.99 a month, and that gets you four streams and unlimited downloads, plus all the content is in 4K.
There are various bundle options also available in the US, which include, giving users access to Hulu and ESPN Plus streaming services too, and costing from $9.99 per month.
How can I get Disney Plus for free?
The short answer is, you can't. Disney Plus was initially offering a seven-day free trial when it launched but this offer is no longer available. But with the cheapest subscription options starting at $7.99 / £7.99 per month, which you can cancel at any time, it may be worth signing up for a month and seeing if you like the content.
