Disney + is mostly marked or said as Disney Plus. Disney Plus is an American-based Platform where an individual has to subscribe for getting videos on demand. Moreover, this top streaming service is possessed and employed by the Media and Entertainment Distribution division. Whereas the Media and Entertainment Distribution belongs to The Walt Disney Company. Disney Plus provides its users with films and television series. Thus, these television and film series are produced under The Walt Disney Studios and Walt Disney Television. Along with this, it is a platform that also provides original films and television series.
In addition to this, it also distributes content for Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and the Star brand. Thus, it is quite a surprise that Disney has a streaming deal with Netflix, which ended in 2019. After this, Disney came up with the idea of merging with Hotstar. Thus, this is for the production of films and television shows for exclusive release. These exclusive releases started in late 2017. Moreover, it was introduced in India through Star India’s Hotstar in April. Furthermore, it was rebranded as Disney + Hotstar. Nevertheless, a great record was set by Disney +. This was when ten million users had subscribed to it on the first day of its operation. Along with this, Disney + Hotstar has reached the milestone of 100 million subscribers on the 9th of March, 2021.

How much is Disney Plus Premier Access?
The Disney plus Premier Access is not constant for each film released there. Moreover, to buy a movie on Disney plus, one also has to have a Disney Plus subscription. The Disney plus subscription monthly costs about $69.99 per year or Rs. 5088.06 roughly in India. Whereas annually, it will cost $6.99 or Rs. 508.12 roughly. Apart from this, Disney Plus is also available with Hulu and ESPN+. Thus, it costs $12.99 or Rs. 943.76 per month roughly. This means it’s about $6 or Rs. 453.92 less monthly if you subscribe to all the services without the bundle. This also means that the bundle is reasonable than any other package.
Till today the Disney Plus Premier charges yearly $29.99 or Rs. 2179.10 roughly in India as well. Whereas in other currencies, it will cost yearly around £19.99, AUD 34.99, and EUR 21.99 respectively. However, we are unsure about the fact whether Disney+ will continue with this same amount. This is because its popularity has drastically increased than before. However, it is speculated that the prices will see a slight increase in themselves in North America or the USA. It is expected to rise by $1. Thus, this is said to be implemented from 26th March. So, it is advised to the interested users to subscribe to it as possible. Otherwise, the prices can go high, which won’t be profitable at all.
In Conclusion, we can say that this package is a boon for those who love watching on the first day. However, it has a great disadvantage; it is that it is too costly and can not be afforded by many. So it is mostly advised to wait till the movie gets old and is released for the normal viewers.
