Title: Disney Plus - Anyone?
Post by: desray on November 14, 2019, 09:08
Haven't launched in Singapore yet (at the time of this thread)...It will cost around $10/mth - much cheaper than Apple TV + and definitely cheaper than streaming giant, Netflix. But we also know that Disney bought over 20th Century Fox and so all the movies under the latter's vault will automatically becomes Disney property from here on. With the Disney Plus channel rolled out and all Disney related movies/series pulled out from Netflix, it is plausible to see a drop in subscription fees by Netflix to match Disney and Apple TV +...

I believe I've read somewhere that Disney Plus will launch its maiden service in Asia Pacific starting from end of this year to 1st qtr of next year. Question is, will you ditch Netflix when Disney Plus hits Singapore?  ??? ??? ???

Instead of dropping, my Netflix subscription here in Australia just went up to AU$19.99.
Definitely not going to spend too much on streaming services, so I'll have to think long and hard which ones to get.

What about the PQ and SQ? 4k streaming?

I’m currently on Apple TV + trial and I have to say that I am very impressed with the HDR PQ.

Yep. In Singapore, Netflix subscription is much cheaper compared to the States and Australia.

Likely not. Not a fan to watch major blockbusters via streaming due to sound and PQ quality. Netflix offers a very large variety of dramas and documentaries which I dun mind watching via streaming platform.

Same argument as you when it comes to streaming a feature-length movie...since we ALL KNOW that it is not possible to get good lossless sound quality via streaming even though the PQ may reach a very respectable level (with HEVC and better compression down the road). Netflix seems to have more original content churned out compared to Applet TV + for now...As for Disney Plus, it seems like a curator of movies and animations with a few Disney-ran series/franchise.

From Disney vault? I doubt so, that's why there is Hulu.

I'm signed up for Disney+ on a Firestick 4K, using the StrongVPN app. Works great. HDR video quality and sound are excellent on my PJ

Ever since I got my HD Fury Vertex2, my Firestick 4K reports Dolby Vision on a lot of Disney+ newer titles. The entire Avengers series is in Dolby Vision, so I've been rewatching since the UHD Blu Ray is only HDR 10.

Do you need a US credit card to sign up?

OK, I guess there’s no other way around it.

Been on Disney+ since day 1.  Initially had Mandalorian to sustain interest but following the end of the season run, there's been not much interesting content unless you want to feel nostalgic and watch oldie animations.  Planning to suspend my account until Mandalorian resumes or the Marvel serials start showing.

I don't watch Disney+ as much as Netflix, but there is good content depending on taste. I've watch some of the National Geographic content, which was good, most recently the search for Amelia Erhart. I watched the final season of Clone Wars. That was pretty good. There are a total of 7 seasons. Am waiting for a new season of Rebels. A few others I've yet to watch are Frozen II, Lion King, Aladdin and Maleficent II. There are many well rated movies that were of marginal interest because of content, but I find that I am watching them now in glorious Dolby Vision and marveling at the picture quality. As well as some of those I watched at 1080p, now in Dolby Vision. Watched Fantastic Four the other day in DV. Superb quality too.

I agree.

For what I paid $80/year Disney Plus is a no brainer.

I got to watch the original Star Wars trilogy in UHD Vision and Atmos before the discs were released.

Even though I’ve bought them on discs recently because of an offer.

There’s also a catalogue of Fox movies on its way.

I also have Prime but that was because of Grand Tour.

I just got Netflix again but once I’m caught up I’ll probably cancel.
