Disney Plus - Anyone?
« 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?  ??? ??? ???

Will assess when the time comes. Can always trial first.

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.

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?
