What is Disney +?
Rivaling Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, Disney + is a streaming service that you can watch on your smart TV, computer, smartphone or tablet. To access it, just have any of these devices and a stable internet connection. If you don't have a smart TV, auxiliary devices like video games and Chromecasts will also allow you to access the service.
Because video transmission consumes a lot of bandwidth, our recommendation is that you access Disney + through a Wi-Fi connection. Unless you have a huge mobile data plan available for your cell phone.
In other words, Disney + is yet another streaming service that has come to grips with the various options that already exist on the market. In its favor, it has major works such as the Marvel and Star Wars films, as well as a good variety of exclusive series and animations.
