Disney Plus Canada: All You Need to Know – [A Complete Guide 2022]

Disney Plus Canada – from Marvel movies to DCOMs, you can watch it all here!

So, I took my friend with zero Marvel knowledge to watch “Spiderman: No way Home” and, guess what? she liked it! Don’t know if she could really understand it… Anyways, now that she got the taste of MCU, she has finally decided to convert to Marvelism. And being a religious Marvel fan and as a representative of Marvel fandom, I took this responsibility to officially introduce her to the Marvel world and show her what she has been missing all along.

But it’s too hard to explain all the lineups, backstories, post-credit scenes, and its links to a newbie Marvel fan, so I recommended her to get the subscription of the only streaming platform that has assembled all the Marvel catalog in one place? Yes, you’ve guessed it right, it’s Disney+

Launched in November 2019 in Canada and the US, Disney+ has become one of the leading streaming platforms, ramping up over 100 million subscribers within just two years (Thanks to baby Yoda, WandaVision, and Loki). The fast acquisition of paying subscribers has surprised not only market analysts but Disney itself, especially since Disney guesstimate it would take five years to achieve a 90-million-subscribers hallmark.

With ever-increasing subscribers and a Marvel-heavy content catalog, Disney+ is now directly competing with the likes of Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video. In fact, Disney expects to have over 230 million to 260 million subscribers by the end of 2024 – too much optimism perhaps, but it goes on to show how confident this platform is in its streaming content.

But still, with so many choices out there, is Disney Plus Canada worth subscribing to in 2022? Let’s take a look at its price, best Disney Plus movies and series, new releases, and sign up procedure:

Disney-Plus-Canada-Price

Does the price seem higher than you last heard? Well, yes! On 23 February 2021, Disney Plus has increased its price rates from $8.99 to $11.99 per month with the addition of the Star channel to the platform.

Disney+ also offers bundle options that package the service with two other Disney-owned streaming services such as ESPN+ and Hulu. However, this facility is only limited to US residents, as both Hulu and ESPN+ are geo-restricted in Canada. But if you connect to a reliable VPN – a tool designed to spoof your location and let you access geo-restricted content – you can purchase Disney bundle at slightly cheaper rates. Check out how much Disney Bundle costs:

Disney + ad-supported Hulu $14 per month
Disney + ad-free Hulu $20 per month
Disney + Hulu Live TV $73 per month

With the Disney Bundle subscription, you can get the subscriptions to Disney+, ESPN+, and the Hulu plan you select for a discounted price, as compared to the retail price of each subscription when purchased separately.

Is there a Disney Plus free trial in Canada?

The Disney Plus Canada free trial is no longer available in any region. The platform used to offer a 7-day free trial at launch but removed it from June 19, 2020, as millions of people started subscribing to the platform. However, there are some promotional offers available if you’re looking to save some bucks.

Disney Plus Day

On account of its second anniversary, Disney brought plenty of birthday treats for fans in the form of Disney Plus Day. Launched on November 12, Disney Plus Day featured a whole slew of new content for fans of Marvel, Star Wars, and all other entertainment released by the family-friendly streamer.

The subscription cost was also slashed to $1.99 a month for current, new, and returning Disney Plus subscribers for a short while.

So what you couldn’t avail of this offer last year? It might return again on the next anniversary, who knows – we can keep our fingers crossed!

Disney Plus Star Canada

In December, Disney revealed that it would finally roll out US-exclusive streaming service Hulu in Canada albeit in another form.

With the inclusion of “Star Channel” to its platform, Disney aims to bring Hulu Originals and other Hulu content to its platform.

Star is not a standalone service. Rather, it’s a sub-channel within the platform, same as Marvel and National Geographic. With this addition, the streaming site has no longer remained a family-focused platform since it is now home to over 600 movies and TV shows intended for adults.

This means you can watch Homeland, Deadpool, Modern Family, Aliens, Die Hard, and Criminal Minds on Disney+ Canada.

The streaming giant has even got a few Star originals coming, including Love Victor, Solar Opposites, Only Murders in the Building, Dopesick, the Dropout, and the upcoming reality show with the Kardashians and Jenners.

Just so you know, all existing and new Disney+ subscribers can get access to Star content.

What is Disney Plus Premier Access in Canada?

Disney Plus introduced a new purchase option called “Premiere Access”,  which allows you to rent a movie that is exclusively running in theatres for $30. You just have to pay once, and you can watch it as many times as you want before it eventually lands on Disney+ months later.

The option was valid on titles like Jungle Cruise, Cruella, Raya, The Last Dragon, Black Widow, and Mulan. The option comes in response to those viewers who couldn’t watch these movies in theatres due to COVID-19 concerns.

With the most recent and upcoming Marvel and Pixar movies releasing to theatres, it’s uncertain whether they will come to Premiere Access in 2022, though.

However, Marvel’s latest superhero gang movie Eternals dropped on the platform on 12 January without Premier Access, meaning anyone with a normal subscription can watch Eternals on Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar.

  1. Open your Disney+ app and log in to your account.
  2. Explore the Disney Plus library and look for the titles for Premier Access.
