If you missed the news, Disney+ is launching in South Africa on 18 May. The streaming service will bring all your favourite Disney shows and movies to the platform alongside Star Wars, National Geographic, Fox and more. The service will cost you R119 a month or R1,190 a year.
If you were wondering how many accounts and streams you can have on Disney+ in South Africa when it launches then we have good news for you. While another streaming platform charges you over R800 a month and locks you into one concurrent stream (we won’t mention names), Disney+ will allow users to have four active concurrent streams at any given moment.
In a press release, Disney says that beyond the four active streams, the company also allows you to have unlimited downloads across up to ten devices. In addition, subscribers can also have up to seven user profiles on one account at any given time.
There’s also a Kids Profile that boasts an easy-to-navigate and child-friendly interface that makes it easier for the little ones to get around. Of course, the kids’ profile locks out any mature content too.
This is great news for users looking to subscribe under a family account. It is even better for those hoping to have multiple streams taking place at any given time.
We are now still waiting to hear what Disney+ will bring to the table in terms of streaming quality. The current service offers SD and 4K HDR/Dolby Vision streaming so we can most likely expect the same level of fidelity here in SA.
