Starting on November 12, 2019, Disney is releasing the brand new streaming service of Disney Plus. This service will include all movies, TV shows, and short-films under the company names of Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic. Since all of these films will already be included on Disney Plus, Disney will be removing all Disney-owned entertainment off of all other streaming services such as Netflix, Starz, and Hulu. Fans of Disney, or the other companies included under the service, will have to pay $3.92 per month if they are wanting to be signed up for the Founder’s Circle ahead of time, or may have to pay more if they do not register before the release date. However, since other movies and shows exist out of Disney-owned companies, there will be plenty of options that are not included on Disney Plus. This raises the question of is it really worth it to buy Disney Studio’s newest service?

We all know the chart-topping entertainment service of Netflix. For a little over two decades, it has been the go-to service for entertainment,since it includes productions from companies across the board. Netflix provides plenty of Disney-owned movies and shows, and these cinematics make up a very large number of Netflix’s options. With Disney removing all of their movies and shows, is it a smart move to have subscriptions to both services, if not more if you are subscribed to Starz or Hulu? Having Disney alone may be good if you only want the movies provided by them, but not all of our favorite shows will be provided, making it a necessity to have another service as well; whether it be Netflix or any other streaming service, since many companies share shows. However, having two or more subscriptions may seem a little excessive. Though they offer different options, there is the issue of how much each may be used. However, not only the kid’s shows will be on Disney Plus. It may just be enough, across all Disney-owned companies, to cover most genres, if not all. And, to be fair, it does not cost all that much for the subscription and, if used enough, owning multiple streaming services can balance out if we consider the amount of content. But since Disney Plus has yet to be released and no one has seen the extent of what is included, who’s to say not to buy it?
