How much is Disney Plus? How its price compares with Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Apple TV Plus

Disney Plus has finally launched in the UK, and if you haven’t signed up yet, one of the key questions to consider is how much it costs compared to Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Apple TV Plus, three of its biggest rivals.

The first thing to mention is that a Disney Plus free trial is available. You’ll get seven days of access to the streaming service without paying a penny.

After that, a subscription will cost either £5.99 per month (which adds up to £71.88 over the course of a year), or £59.99 for 12 months (which is the equivalent of £4.99 every month). That’s right, Disney only offers one subscription tier, and it includes access to 4K and HDR content.

We continually check thousands of prices to show you the best deals. If you buy a product through our site we will earn a small commission from the retailer – a sort of automated referral fee – but our reviewers are always kept separate from this process.

So how does the Disney Plus’ price compare with those of its main rivals?

Here’s the full Disney Plus content list for the UK

Disney Plus vs Netflix

Netflix also offers a free trial, but it lasts 30 days. After that, there are three different subscription tiers you can choose from:

  • Basic (one screen at a time, max quality SD) − £5.99
  • Standard (up to two screens at a time, max quality HD) − £8.99 per month
  • Premium (up to four screens at a time, max quality 4K HDR) − £11.99 per month

To sign up for Netflix’s free trial, follow this link, choose the right plan for you (details below), enter your payment details, and set up an account using an email address and password.

Amazon Prime Day

Disney Plus vs Amazon Prime Video

Amazon also offers a 30-day free trial for Prime Video, but if you’re a student you can take advantage of a six-month free trial.

However, as well as access to Amazon’s streaming platform, you’ll unlock Amazon’s range of Prime membership perks, including one-day delivery on millions of items, ad-free music streaming with Prime Music, unlimited photo storage, and early access to Lightning Deals.

After this, things get a little messy. Amazon offers a £5.99 a month Prime Video-only subscription, but the company doesn’t make a big song and dance about this particular plan.

Instead, it bigs up its Prime subscription, which costs either £7.99 per month or £79 a year. This includes all of the Prime membership perks mentioned above.

Students, however, can pay £39 per year for Amazon Prime, rather than £79.

All subscription options allow you to watch stream up to three titles at the same time using the same Amazon account. However, you can only stream the same title on one device at a time. Here’s what you can watch on Prime Video right now.

The Morning Show

Disney Plus vs Apple TV Plus

The first thing to mention is that there are a few ways to get Apple TV Plus for free. If you buy a new iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Apple TV or Mac − or did after September 10 2019 − you’re eligible to get Apple TV Plus free for a year. You can also get Apple TV Plus for free if you’re on Apple’s £4.99 per month Apple Music student plan.

And if you don’t fall into either of those groups, a seven-day free trial is open to everyone. After that, a subscription to Apple TV Plus will cost £4.99 per month. That adds up to £59.88 over the course of a year.

With Family Sharing, you can share one Apple TV Plus subscription with five other members of your family, and you can all stream content simultaneously. Without Family Sharing, you can only access Apple TV Plus on one device at a time.
