I swear almost every day I say I’m going to get rid of my Disney+ account and instead keep paying for my Netflix DVD plan. And then, every single day, I find something new on Disney+, like Werewolf by night, with its fantastically brutal take on the MCU, and I’m all like, Oh, what is this? I mean, I’m even worse than my kids when it comes to being naughty sometimes.
But, maybe it’s because when I started seeing emails about the Disney+ price increase, I started to get upset. It wasn’t that long ago when I started subscribing to Disney+ (back in 2019) and found it to be a cost-effective alternative to other streaming services. Now, I’m already starting to wonder if I’d like the cheaper, ad-supported Disney+ instead of what I currently have. Or just get rid of it completely.
It’s gotten so ridiculous with the prices going up, I’m probably going to cancel my Disney+ subscription any day now. or not. I go back and forth daily. So here are a few reasons why I’m still on the fence about canceling my Disney+ account (and why I’ll likely end up keeping it long-term).
There is not enough mature content on the platform, which is what I really want from Disney+
One of the reasons I seriously considered canceling my Disney+ subscription is because there isn’t enough adult content on the platform, and I’m craving it! Like, you know how all the Netflix Marvel shows migrated to Disney+, and how we all had to change our settings to be able to watch them? Well, I thought that would be the start of something new on the platform, maybe We can get Star in the US (ie more mature content), since everyone else in the world gets it, except for us.
but not. It doesn’t look like we’ll be getting a Star anytime soon, plus movies like Loganthe two dead list Movies and Netflix Marvel shows, we don’t get any of the mature content that I crave, which is important because besides bluish (of which Disney+ banned an episode), my kids don’t even watch Disney+. Like, what is f#*$, Disney? Where’s my mom #^&@^adult%#^@% content?! you%$^#!
I’m still not a fan of the original content that isn’t from the MCU and Star Wars
What original content are we getting on Disney+ that isn’t from the MCU or star Wars? Nutcracker hip hop? Santa Clause? The best in the snow? What’s up We are these? Are they seriously considering raising my prices so I can watch shows like Sumo do sumo no? Are they kidding me?
I mean, I don’t even know what Sumo do sumo no he is. (It seems kinda funny now that I’m actually checking it out, but still!) Along with the new one willow TV show, I have no interest in any of the original movies or TV shows no Have Marvel or star Wars names on it. What was said…
Star Wars and the MCU content is now static, so there’s always something new to watch
You know, there was a time when I had to wait long periods between Marvel and star Wars TV shows, such as The MandalorianAnd the Loki, and I felt like there was absolutely nothing to watch on the platform. But now, there are approx very Lots of content from Marvel and star Wars. It’s like every time I click on the app there’s some new Marvel series, or some new series star Wars project, so I never get confused when I see something on the platform. It can go both ways, for example, if it’s something like that What if…? or Boba Fett bookwhere I kind of hate watching my way through the entire season.
But, my take on this is kind of on the positive side now since the last Marvel show, Strong woman (which I think is the best MCU show, by far), and the last star Wars show, Andor-I had to watch TV. So even though I’m kind of bummed about all the other original content on Disney+ lately, I do like some Marvel and star Wars in this time. And I can only get it on Disney+, so there is that.
Programs like Limitless are finally making it attractive to me
Also, National Geographic has always been the one aspect of Disney+ that never bothered me at all. I just didn’t get the point, because I’m not really a nature guy, and I don’t really like documentaries unless they’re about Donkey Kongor a Netflix series A high degree (It’s also about video games). So, I honestly found National Geographic to be a waste of time.
But, Chris Hemsworth’s new show, no limits (not to be confused with a Bradley Cooper movie) has me checking out National Geographic now. In the show, he tries to beat the clock (of life) by challenging his mind and body to various tasks, such as fasting for days or climbing ropes. It’s really insightful stuff, and I’m really looking forward to more content of this kind on the platform. They finally get me.
New seasons of The Simpsons releasing so soon after the previous one ended means I can finally clear my DVR of the series
Finally, as a lifelong fan of The Simpsonscan I just say my DVR is full for years Episodes that I’ve been wanting to watch or want to watch again. That said, my wife was getting annoyed with me, telling me to either watch the episodes or erase them. Those were the only two options I had.
And it’s not like my wife was being inconsequential, because I’ve got episodes from the past four seasons on DVR just sitting there, taking up space. But, with Disney+, I can delete them all since they have every season on the platform, and I’ll also get the current season shortly after it ends on network TV. So, now that I think about it, I actually am I can not Get rid of Disney +. Not when the full set of The Simpsons It can be found on the platform.
So yeah, it looks like I might be keeping Disney+… for now. But what do you think? We are You are Thinking of canceling Disney+, or are you under Mickey’s thumb forever (like me, it seems)?
