Disney+ went live today and not a lot of work got done by people logging in.
There were issues of people being able to log in or just connection issues, but with something so large, it was bound to happen.
Now you might be saying, “Mike, that headline is misleading.”
No, the headline isn’t wrong. You can get one year of Disney+ for free by being a Verizon customer.
The only caveat: You have to have an unlimited data plan with Verizon Wireless or sign up for a year of 5G FIOS.
I wrote an article not too long ago saying how Disney was offering customers a way to prepay for a length of time at a discounted price.
Disney is offering Disney+ for only $6.99/month or if you get the ESPN+/Hulu/Disney+ package for $12.99/month. (Hulu is the ad-supported version)
$84/year isn’t that bad for a platform offering as much as it is. But if you’re a Verizon Wireless customer with unlimited data or a Verizon FIOS switcher, save your money and get your free year! This is in addition to the six months or longer of free Apple Music!
Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar, Nat Geo, and Disney Animation is just the start. Most recently, Disney bought most of Fox’s assets, so The Simpsons, Avatar, and countless other films and shows are on there too!
After the promotional period, you will get charged $6.99/month unless you cancel.
The best part? If you’re already a Disney+ subscriber, you can still get one year FREE with Verizon and still keep whatever subscription you purchased prior afterwards!
But the biggest question on everyone’s mind is…
What do you plan on watching first?
