Netflix Might Have the Golden Globe Nominations, but Here’s Why Disney+ Is Still Better

Since Disney+ joined the ranks of big-name streaming services on Nov. 12, 2019, people have been debating which service is better: Disney+ or Netflix? There is a plethora of movies and television shows to stream on both, so why is Disney+ the winner? Let’s take a look at the three main reasons fans couldn’t care less that Netflix is sweeping the Golden Globe nominations.

Disney+ has everything Marvel and Star Wars fanatics could ever want

Disney took back its Marvel and Star Wars rights from Netflix and then proceeded to blow fans’ minds with the amount of original new shows coming their way.

You have likely seen something about baby Yoda lately but might not have known what it was referencing. Baby Yoda is a highlight from the new series, The Mandalorian, on Disney+, which is all the talk right now. 

Disney+ also offers almost every Star Wars movie ever made. The only three missing right now — The Last Jedi, Rogue One, and Solo — will be available in 2020. Fans will also enjoy a new Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor, as well as season 7 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars in 2020. And they will have access to every season of Star Wars Rebels and seasons 1-6 of The Clone Wars.

Disney+ did not forget Marvel fans; they have original shows coming their way, too. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier launches in fall 2020. There is also a Loki show and a Hawkeye show in the works for 2021. Until then, fans can stream nearly every Marvel movie ever created, including Avengers: Endgame. And according to Disney+, anything not available currently is coming in 2020.

Disney+ is cheaper than Netflix and allows you to connect to more devices

The first question nearly everyone asks is, “How much does Disney+ cost?” You will be pleased to know it is roughly half the price of its Netflix equivalent. Disney+ is only $6.99 monthly or $69.99 per year ($5.83/month). Netflix does have a basic streaming plan that costs $8.99 monthly, but it has minimal features. 

The basic streaming plan from Netflix only allows users to view it on a single screen. Disney+ allows one account to stream to 10 devices for one low price. Netflix cannot compare to this, even with its more expensive plans. 

The standard streaming plan from Netflix is $12.99 but only gives you two streaming devices and high definition. The premium Netflix plan is well over double the price of Disney+ at $15.99, and it still only gives users the option to stream to four devices. Disney+ is the clear winner in terms of price and device accessibility. 

The wide range of Disney classics, Pixar films, and new shows coming soon on Disney+ will blow your mind

For families with kids, Disney+ is the easy choice over Netflix. You can show your kids all of your favorite classic movies with the touch of a button. Parents no longer have to worry about their kids losing or scratching that DVD. Plus, every child can stream something different on their device — goodbye fights over what to watch.

Pixar movies available include Toy Story and Toy Story 2, Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, and The Incredibles. Newer films like The Incredibles 2 are on the way. There are also numerous shorts, including several surrounding Forky — titled Forky Asks a Question — who is a fan favorite from Toy Story 4 for both children and adults. 

With the array of Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar, and classic Disney, Disney+ has many perks over Netflix. Its cheaper price point and ability to stream to more devices add to its value. Move over, Netflix; Disney+ is here to stay.
