If you sign up for a Disney Plus account, odds are you’ll be sharing it with other people. Thankfully the Mouse House’s streaming platform allows several users to watch its library of movies and TVs at once.
When you sign up for Disney Plus, your account can be associated with seven different profiles. It’s meant to cover an entire household, with each member having their customized Disney Plus experiences. Plus, you can share your account with extended family or friends. However, simultaneous streams are limited to four, so be careful when handing out your login information.
Disney Plus and other streaming giants are aware that password sharing is something many of their members do. Sure, that may make them miss out on a sum of money. But that’s insignificant in the grand scheme of things.
You can watch the entire Disney Plus library on the mobile app for phones and tablets. Users can also stream movies on the web through a browser, most Smart TVs, gamingconsoles like PS4, or the Disney Plus app on streaming devices like a Roku or Amazon Fire Stick.
One elegant feature of Disney Plus is the ability to give someone else a subscription. The company offers consumers the option to gift an entire subscription (perhaps to keep you from sharing your password), so it’s worth mentioning that as an option.
All you need to do is visit the Gift Subscription website and click on the option. Then, proceed through the following pages to sign up. However, this option only offers a yearly subscription, and the receiving user needs to create a new account.
Disney Plus’s streaming cap of four devices is higher than nearly all its rival services. For example, HBO Now and Prime Video allow up to three devices. For streaming staple Netflix, the number of devices depends on what subscription tier you pay for.
Netflix’s Basic plan, which costs $8.99 a month, only allows for one device. Meanwhile, the Standard plan for $12.99 allows for two devices, and the Premium tier priced at $15.99 a month will grant you the Disney Plus equivalent of 4 devices.
Hulu works similarly to Netflix. Its two most famous and affordable subscriptions only allow for two devices. If you are willing to spring for a Hulu+ Live TV, you can add an unlimited screen option for $9.99 per month.
