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 for several users to watch its library of movies and TVs at once.
How Does Disney Plus Sharing Work?
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 currently watch the full 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, gaming consoles like PS4, or through the Disney Plus app on streaming devices like a Roku or Amazon Fire Stick.
Share using a Disney Plus Gift Subscription
One elegant feature of Disney Plus is the ability to give someone else a subscription. That’s right, 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 to get started. 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.
How Disney Plus compares to competitors
Disney Plus’ streaming cap of four devices is higher than nearly all of its rival services. HBO Now and Prime Video allow up to three devices at a time. For streaming staple Netflix, the number of devices depends on what subscription tier you pay for.
How many people can watch Amazon Prime at once
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 popular — and most 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 an additional $9.99 per month.
