If we already considered that the streaming video sector was distributed among a few, with the launch of Apple TV + and Disney +, the offer has expanded considerably and to soon Hulu will join, when next year begins to arrive in Europe. Paying for all currently available services is not a feasible solution for virtually anyone.
Disney + will begin its journey in Spain and the rest of European countries, next March 24. Many are the doubts that arise regarding the new offer that we will have at our disposal, doubts that little by little Disney has been revealing and that we show you below.
The Walt Disney Company, better known as Disney, it was founded in 1923 by Walt Disney and today is the largest media and entertainment company in the world. The companies that are currently under the Disney umbrella are:
- Pixar Animation Studios
- Marvel studios
- National Geographic (does not own 100%).
- 20th Century Studios (Fox)
- Searchlight Pictures
- Blue sky studios
- The Muppets
The catalog at your disposal through all these companies is immense, although currently It is distributed In the different streaming video services available all over the world, initially its entire catalog has not been available at the time of its launch, nor in the United States nor will it be in Europe. In order for the entire Disney catalog to be available through Disney +, it will take a few years.
Catalog available in Spain
The main attraction, for some, is the extensive catalog behind Disney, catalog that, as I mentioned above, will not be complete during the first years of operation, since the previously signed rights agreements have to be finalized in order to add them to your catalog.
Having an extensive catalog of series and movies is not synonymous with success, since users look for new products, either in the form of series or movies and in this Disney +, like Apple TV +, has very little to offer.
The initial Disney + catalog will be composed for 400 movies, 100 newly created movies, 7,500 episodes of television series and more than 350 hours of National Geographic documentaries.
One of the biggest attractions that Disney + will offer us, although many users have already had the opportunity to enjoy it is The Mandalorian (and his peculiar Baby Yoda). The first episode of The Mandalorian will be available on March 24 and a new episode will be added every week until the first season is completed.
The Clone Wars
Cartoon series The Clone Wars reaches its seventh season and will do so exclusively on Disney +. This series is among the movies Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the clones and Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.
A day at Disney
If you want know everything around Disney, from his films to his amusement parks, you can not miss that series, series will be available from March 24.
Marvel, Heroes Project
The documentary Marvel Project Heroes, shows us people of flesh and blood, from children to adolescents who have createdor projects aimed at changing the community around them and change the problems that affect them on a day to day basis.
The Serie Falcon and the Winter Soldier It is located just after the movie Avengers: Engame and will be composed in its first (unique?) by 6 episodes. Unfortunately its premiere is not scheduled until autumn of this year. In 2021, the series premiere is scheduled Loki, Hawkeye, Moon and Wandavision, series that will show us the origins of the characters.
As with Marvel movies, Disney wants stretch the success of the most popular Pixar movies in recent years and some of the protagonists of Toy Store will have their own series as well as the characters of Monstruos S.A. The premiere of these series is currently unknown.
The world according to Jeff Goldblum
From the hand of National Geographic comes the documentary series The world according to Jeff Goldblum, one of the protagonists of Jurassic Park, The Fly among others, and in which he will travel the world to show us other cultures, other ways of having fun, other ways of seeing life.
If you are enjoying the content that Disney + will have and you also want to try it, you can take advantage of the launch offer and get it cheaper.
Disney states that most of its series will be available simultaneously In all countries where you offer your service, we will not be forced to use alternative methods to enjoy the new Disney releases before they arrive in Spain.
Simultaneous devices and profiles
Disney’s streaming video service offers us four screens together, that is, four people can jointly access Disney + from different devices to enjoy their catalog. In addition, it allows us to create up to 7 independent profiles, so that the tastes and contents of parents and children are not mixed, for example.
To try to reach the largest number of potential users, Disney allows access to Disney + through any device, whether console, tablet, smartphone, set-top box, smart TV … Below we detail all the devices compatible with Disney + (if you need to install the application that will be available a few days before its launch).

Quality of service

Disney + will allow us download content on up to 10 devices associated to the same account, although at the moment it has not specified the time we have to complete the visualization of the content that we have downloaded once we have started it.
