While the streaming wars are just getting heated up, Disney Plus arrives with an array of content that some will just absolutely love.
Introductory pricing has started off quite reasonably and lower than Netflix, however Disney Plus is by no means a direct competitor to Netflix – their content libraries vary widely and will always vary widely.
Let’s dive right into the price and features of Disney’s streaming platform!

$8.99 Canadian per month (plus taxes) and $89.99 annually (comes out to $7.49 per month) with a free 1 week trial.
The Disney Plus subscription allows you to stream or download and watch later.

Disney announced that as of February 23rd, 2021 that their monthly streaming plan will will increase by $3 to $11.99 and the annual plan will increase from $89.99 to $119.99.
Don’t worry, this raise is not out of the blue as it lines up with the launch of “Star” which is said to be an international version of Hulu.

How long is the free trial for Disney Plus Canada?

You can always upgrade to an annual package at the end of the month if you like it.
Is Disney plus better than Netflix?
Netflix is a global streaming giant and household brand.
However, it doesn’t offer the same variety of content in Canada as it does in the United States.
As a result, you get a limited offering of content on Netflix Canada, making it less impressive than the US version.
Disney Plus might have a slender content library compared to Netflix, but it’s growing every day.
We expect Disney Plus to surpass Amazon and other streaming platforms to settle as the number-two contender under Netflix.
Eventually, we see Disney Plus becoming a very strong streaming provider in the market.
A Netflix subscription cost you CAN$9.99 per month.
However, with the basic package, you can only stream one movie or show at a time, and only in SD resolution.
The standard package costs you CAN$14.99, with two streams, and you get HD resolution.
The four-user Ultra HD Premium package is CAN$18.99.
Compare that top Disney Plus subscription at CAN$9 per month, or take an annual subscription for $90 with an upfront payment, saving you 10%.
Can you share your Disney Plus account?
Technically you should not be sharing your Disney Plus account outside of your own household.
One Disney Plus account can be used simultaneously for 4 streams with up to 7 user profiles.
Disney and all of the other streaming companies are well aware that accounts do get shared outside of the household with extended family and friends.
