Disney+ Sweden: Price, features and content
How Disney’s streaming service works and everything you can watch using it.
Disney+ is a streaming service operated by entertainment giant Disney. Consider it the Mouse House’s response to platforms like Netflix, and Prime Video. The online service gives users access to a generous library of TV shows and movies from the Disney catalogue, as well as titles from Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar and National Geographic.
Disney+ originally launched into a few markets in November 2019. It’s growing with each passing month, adding new titles to its library. Highlights include original show The Mandalorian and long-running series The Simpsons, as well as several Marvel and Star Wars blockbusters.
Disney announced plans for its own streaming service Disney+ back in 2017. It joins an increasingly crowded marketplace, dominated by Netflix globally but with plenty of other newer competitors, including Amazon Prime Video and Apple TV+.
Most existing Disney TV shows and movies will eventually end up on the streaming service. That means not just cartoons, but also content from the worlds of Marvel, Pixar and Fox (which Disney acquired in early 2019). Disney is also stepping up with 4K content.
After a trial launch in the Netherlands, Disney+ rolled out first in USA, Canada and the Netherlands in November 2019. Australia and New Zealand followed just a week later. The UK and parts of Europe were next getting the service in March 2020. Now it’s finally Sweden’s turn to join in the fun.
Sweden release and price
On 15 September 2020, the countdown will finally finish and Disney+ will be live in Sweden. Subscriptions to Disney+ in Sweden will cost SEK 89/month or SEK 890 for an entire year. There will be no free trial available at launch. Disney+ removed free trials globally back in June 2020.
What shows and original productions will Disney+ have?
Disney is investing heavily in original content for Disney+. This echoes what competitors like Netflix and Amazon are already doing. To begin, the company will rely on established brands instead of exploring new avenues, but its focus might change as time goes by.
Disney+ TV shows
On the TV front, Disney+ offers hours of Disney Channel programming, but also original productions made especially for the streaming service. The list features Star Wars spin-off The Mandalorian, which became an international hit shortly after its release. Season 2 of the sci-fi western will reportedly become available in October 2020.
Other original Disney+ TV shows include High School Musical: The Musical: The Series and Diary of a Future President. Subscribers can binge-watch 29 seasons of popular animated series The Simpsons. For lovers of everything Disney, there are docu-series available as well, like The Imagineering Story.
On the movie front, Disney+ is becoming the exclusive streaming destination for all titles under the Disney umbrella. Avengers: Endgame, for instance, was available at launch, with The Lion King and Aladdin joining the platform in 2020. Frozen 2 will also be available to stream exclusively on Disney+.
Besides, the catalogue includes hundreds of animated titles from the Disney Vault, as well as Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar films. Users can also watch Disney+ original movies like Noelle, Magic Camp and Togo.
Disney+ upcoming content
Disney+ has plenty of content currently in production. One of the most highly anticipated series slated to debut on the platform is a Star Wars spin-off led by the roguish spy Cassian Andor, a conflicted rebel who fights ruthlessly for the greater good.
Additionally, the Marvel universe is expanding, with several TV shows set in the universe slated for Disney+. The first will be The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, rumoured to premiere in August 2020. This will be followed by WandaVision in December and Loki in 2021.
Other highlights to look out for include an untitled Obi-Wan Kenobi series and animation Monsters at Work. Subscribers should also get excited for more Marvel TV series, most notably Hawkeye, What If…, Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk.
Disney+ Sweden sign-up
The easiest way to create a Disney+ account is via the official website. To sign up to Disney+ all you’ll require is an email address plus your debit or credit card handy. Register for an account, drop in your card details and you’ll be good to start watching.
Until Disney+ becomes live, you can purchase an annual subscription to the service at a discount. Head to the official website and buy a year of Disney+ for only SEK 890. We’ve got a detailed sign-up guide available.
How to watch Disney+
Disney+ can be viewed in a large number of ways. You can watch on your laptop/PC by accessing the website or download the app on iOS and Android devices. There is also an app for PS4 and Xbox One game consoles. On the big screen you can use Apple TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV Stick or Android TV for streaming for another device. Some Samsung and LG TVs also have built-in Disney+ support. All content on Disney+ is in HD.
Originally this was an issue for some older TV shows which had been “cropped” from their original 4:3 ratio. Those changes were particularly controversial for The Simpsons, where some visual gags were effectively ruined, though they’ve since completed a fix.
You can stream on up to four devices at once. Unlike Netflix, Disney+ isn’t charging extra for the ability to watch on multiple screens.
Why is Disney+ such a big deal?
It seems like everyone is launching a streaming platform these days, so why is Disney so special? First off, this new platform is now the exclusive home for subscription-video-on-demand viewing of the newest live action and animated movies from Disney and Pixar. That includes titles like Toy Story 4 and Frozen 2.
The service features a vast collection of library content, including Disney and Pixar movies and Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney XD television programming.
But more importantly, Disney’s streaming service hosts content from Disney’s subsidiaries Marvel, Lucasfilm and National Geographic. This means that the platform will also host all the Marvel and Stars Wars movies released so far, as well as all upcoming titles. These are some of the biggest film franchises in the world, so it’s obvious that the Force will be strong with this new streaming service.
The platform’s entire content library is available to be downloaded for offline viewing. Its biggest calling card is that its content will never disappear as it owns it all.
After originally launching without a resume or continue watching option, Disney moved to correct the fault, quickly adding three new features. There are also your standard features such as watchlists and multiple profiles. Parents will be happy to know you can set up a Kids Profile too, to ensure your children don’t see inappropriate material.
Possibly the most interesting aspect is the ability to request shows and movies yourself to be added to the library.
Our verdict on Disney+
So far Disney+ has gone nuts worldwide with over 60 million subscribers. Its price is phenomenal when compared to competitors. What it’s lacking in content to begin with it’s making up for in quality, with new production The Mandalorian outranking Netflix’s Stranger Things shortly after launch.
All in all, Disney+ will only improve as more originals and big releases make it to the platform. More recently, the company announced that the highly anticipated live-action movie Mulan be available to purchase via Disney+ in selected markets. We strongly advise you take advantage of the discounted annual price and give it a go!
