Is Your Internet Connection Disney Plus Ready?

We’re sure you know that most of us have an insatiable appetite for streaming entertainment services. From Netflix to Amazon Prime, Hulu, and YouTube, it seems like each new week more and more content is delivered into our homes.

Another new streaming service is coming later this month that we expect to be a big hit with our customers and families in Idaho.

Disney Plus launches on November 12th. The base service will set you back $7 per month (or $70 if you sign up for a full year). The service includes: 

  • Disney brand content itself (think all the Disney classic movies)
  • Marvel (We feel like those movies have been popular lately)
  • Pixar (inject Cars directly into your kid’s vein at this point)
  • Star Wars (can’t imagine anyone being excited about this)
  • National Geographic (when you want to pretend that TV is educational)

Oh yeah, and they also announced a bundled service for $13 per month that includes Hulu and ESPN Plus.

How anyone with children doesn’t get this for the Disney content alone, we do not know.

With the launch of Disney Plus comes an excellent opportunity to ensure your internet connection and WiFi can handle an additional streaming service.  Disney Plus is going to be the next ‘big thing’ that will drive bandwidth usage up dramatically in your home. Unlike Netflix, Disney is new to the cloud streaming game. Netflix has worked for years on delivering content with the highest quality/smallest file size ratio. Disney is not going to wait around for them to share this secret. Instead, the Disney Plus service is going to be pushing full quality, full file sizes which may affect the performance of your internet connection.
