Movie watching has become an enduring part of our daily lives in Nigeria. Gone are the days when people purchase CDs and DVDs to insert in their home players. Now, we all download and stream our favourite movies and TV shows from the internet.
Disney Plus is one of the most widely-used streaming services in the world. However, it’s not overly popular in Nigeria. Not like the others like Netflix and Amazon Prime. Many Nigerians don’t use Disney Plus.
Why is it so? Does Disney Plus work in Nigeria? If yes, how can you watch Disney Plus in Nigeria? These and more are covered in this post. Read on.
What Is Disney Plus?
Disney Plus is a new streaming service operated by The Walt Disney Company that features new and old TV shows and films. You can find Disney productions like Encanto, plus series and films from. Pixar, Marvel, Jedi, Fox, GEO, and Star.
Disney+ customers can watch episodes and films from FX, Fox, 20th Century Studios, ABC, Searchlight, and Freeform, as well as Star, a section introduced after launch for mature content.
Like Netflix and other streaming services, you don’t need to buy each show or film; instead, you pay a monthly membership to watch everything ad-free. However, Disney+ originals like Marvel’s Moon Knight air weekly on the platform, unlike other streaming services.
How Much Does Disney Plus Cost?
Disney Plus costs $7.99 per month in the United States. An annual membership costs $79.99, which is about 20% cheaper than paying monthly.
You can also join up for the Disney Plus package, which includes Hulu and ESPN Plus for $13.99 a month – $8 is less expensive than purchasing each service separately and is a fair price for such a large selection of great content. Hulu without advertisements alone costs $6 per month.
