In-depth review of Star Wars Series: There are three live-action series coming exclusively to Disney Plus. First up is The Mandalorian; an epic series set after Return of Jedi following a bounty hunter named Sabine Wren. It stars Pedro Pascal (Narcos) as The Mandalorian who finds himself caught in a battle over Mandalore’s limited resources during its time in a civil war.
Cost of Disney Plus vs. Netflix vs. Hulu
Netflix is the most popular of all streaming services with over 137 million subscribers. Hulu is also a top competitor with around 30 million subscribers. But what are the prices? Netflix starts at $8 a month while Hulu starts at $6.99 per month.
However, there are also a lot of popular streaming services that aren’t affiliated with any media company. Amazon Prime has around 100 million subscribers and is $13 a month. YouTube Premium is another competitor with around 80 million subscribers at $12 per month. But it’s not just about how much you pay — what exactly do you get?
Devices Compatible With Disney Plus
Devices compatible with the service include (but are not limited to) Apple TV, iOS devices including iPhones and iPads, Roku, Chromecast, and Android tablets, and phones. In order to use Disney Plus, you must sign up with a device that’s compatible with Apple TV. Furthermore, if you plan on streaming via Chromecast or another mobile device you need an active internet connection of at least 5mbps.
A 4G/3G or Wifi connection is required for downloading a show onto your device. If your Netflix account isn’t working in your country due to geo-restrictions you might want to consider signing up elsewhere such as using VPN services.
