Disney+, in a few words
Disney+ is a SVOD content platform launched in France by Disney on April 07, 2020. This service allows you to find the entire Disney catalog containing the cartoons of your childhood, but also the Pixar (Toy Story, Cars, Ratatouille etc.), Marvel (Iron Man, Avengers, Black Panther etc.), Star Wars, and National Geographic franchises.
Description of price and services
Disney+ offers a single subscription at €6.99 per month with no commitment.
However, you can get a 15% discount if you pay directly for a year’s service, which will cost you €69.99 (instead of €83.88 if you pay the subscription month by month).
For this price, the service promises High Definition streaming, unlimited access to content, no advertising and above all native applications on all your devices (Android, iPhone & iPad, Amazon Fire TV, AppleTV, Chromecast, game consoles etc.)
However, Disney is rapidly evolving its service and recently released a “GroupWatch” feature. As the name suggests, it allows you to watch a program with several people at a distance. As a direct response to lockdown and various curfews, you can continue to follow your favorite series with your friends. The way it works is simple: clicking on the “GroupWatch” button will give you a sharing link that will allow your friends to join the session.
How many devices can I use an account on?
With Disney+, 4 of you can watch a different program simultaneously.
The service allows you to configure up to 7 different profiles, but after the 5th simultaneous connection, the first one connected will be ejected!
Finally, you will be able to download all the programs in unlimited on 10 different devices for your offline sessions.
Co-subscription risks and preventive actions
Account sharing is safe if you follow these 2 golden rules to make your Disney+ account sharing as smooth as possible:
- Use a password dedicated to this account, different from the one you usually use.
- Only share your account with your family or friends, by communicating this password, you give access to the administration of your Disney+ membership
Even with access to your login, another user will not be able to change the email attached to the account or change the password because Disney+ requires a validation code to perform these actions, sent to your email address.
The only risk is to have a prankster modify or delete your profile.
Actions to take to share your account
Here are the steps you need to take on your end to create a different profile for each new subscriber:
- Sign in to your Disney+ account
- On the profile selection page, you will find at the bottom a “Add profile” button
- Select the avatar that most resembles the new subscriber 🙂
- Enter the name of your new subscriber, then click on “Save”.
- Repeat the operation as many times as necessary, always with a maximum of 7 saved profiles
All these choices are not final, you or the new subscriber can change this information at any time. Even though this whole process can be done by the new subscriber, we advise you to take care of it as the account owner, this will encourage the person to click on their name and not mess up your own profile.
How much can I save with a shared account?
If you share the service:
- 3 people: you will be 4 and will always enjoy the stream simultaneously, you will save 63€ on a subscription at 83,88€ for 1 year
- 6 people: you will be 7 and you have a risk to be interrupted during your favorite series, but you will save 72€ on a subscription at 83,88€ for 1 year
How do I share the cost of the subscription with my co-subscribers?
Disney+ does not offer to split the fee between members of a plan, but you can very simply share the fee by signing up on Sharesub. By entering some subscription information, you will get a sharing link: this link will allow your co-subscribers to enter their payment card and one debit per month will be made to credit your account.
Share this opportunity for a Disney+ account with your friends and family for a small fee by sending them a Sharesub share link! You’ll be adored.
Sharesub is a platform that allows you to split the costs of all your subscriptions with your friends, family, colleagues. You can easily enter all your accounts in our interface, and send an invitation to your contacts, which will allow them to register their bank details. You’ll finally get your money back every month without having to do any reminders!
