Externally, Disney + is a lot like Netflix – its interface also consists of horizontal dies. However, Disney focuses on five large hubs – Disney films, Pixar films, Marvel films, Star Wars and National Geographic.
The service will work on all possible platforms – Smart TV, web browsers, tablets, smartphones, game consoles (including Switch). Disney has already signed contracts with Roku and Sony.
Each family member will be able to create their own personal profile in Disney + to save data about the content viewed. There will be a function of parental control.
Content is allowed to download and view offline. Picture quality will be available up to 4K HDR, if supported by the display.

For comparison, Netflix had 4,335 films and 1,197 TV shows in the US in 2016. However, the head of Disney, Bob Iger, has repeatedly said that the company will enter this market gradually.
One of the strengths of Disney + is access to 4K HDR studio films. At the moment, Disney does not give such a picture quality to any digital service – in Netflix and iTunes, its films are available only in 1080p SDR.
In the US, Disney + starts on November 12 at a price of $ 6.99 per month or $ 69.99 per year. Within two years from now, it will be available in all major regions of the world.
