As the two giants of streaming services, Netflix and Disney Plus both have a lot going for them. Do you know which streaming service is right for you?

By Polly WPublished 4 months ago 3 min read

Streaming giant Netflix launched its ad-supported subscription tier in November last year, more than a month ahead of its rival Disney Plus, who launched its own ad-supported version, Disney+ Basic, in December. Although the two giants both launched advertising campaigns in the fourth quarter, their strategies are quite different! This article will go into detail about Netflix and Disney Plus and some of the issues you'll want to know about.

1. What is Netflix & Disney Plus?

Netflix and Disney Plus are both paid video streaming services that both have a lot going for them. One of the first streaming entertainment services was Netflix, which debuted its service back in 2007. Disney Plus, launched in 2019, is owned and operated by the Disney Entertainment division of The Walt Disney Company. Both streaming services have a sizable user base and are well-liked by both adults and children in so many regions and countries.

2. Netflix vs Disney Plus: Subscription Plans and Price

Netflix offers a variety of plan options for its members to find their suitable subscriptions: Standard with ads (formerly called Basic with ads), Basic, Standard, and Premium. And there are two subscription tiers offered by Disney Plus, Basic and Premium. Here are the benefits of each plan and their respective prices. Please note that Netflix does not provide an annual subscription plan.

3. Netflix vs Disney Plus: Content

The two streaming services arguably cater to different audiences, and both offer their viewers a ton of original content. Netflix has more than 6,000 TV shows and movies streaming, while Disney+ has more than 2,000 shows and movies, covering all the brands under Disney, such as Disney, Pixar, Marvel, National Geographic, Star, etc. People can find almost any Marvel movie they want on Disney+, and they can enjoy the multiple Disney Plus exclusive Marvel series released by them. Disney Plus is also a favorite with families and kids, as Disney Plus features hundreds of family-friendly TV shows and movies, including Disney's entire catalog of classic animated features.

One of Netflix's biggest draws to subscribers is its vast library of original content. Netflix has invested heavily in original production and specialized in true crime and reality shows. It's easy to find a list of new Netflix original releases every month and every year. Whether it's movies, reality shows or much-hyped upcoming hits, Netflix has an endless supply of original content for subscribers to watch each week. Netflix tends to release all episodes from original TV series at once while Disney+ releases episodes of TV shows on a weekly basis, which means you'll need to subscribe for multiple months if you want to watch each episode as it premieres.
