6 Hacks For Disney Plus Fans
With millions of subscribers around the world today, Disney Plus made a quick and powerful launch into the world of video content streaming. Since 2019 the platform has been providing tons of popular shows and movies to its subscribers. There’s so much content available that you might not even be aware of what you’re missing. Here are six amazing hacks to help you make the most of your Disney Plus experience.
Create Separate or Joint Profiles
The first thing you can do to enhance your streaming experience is to create separate profiles for everyone who will be using the service. If you have kids who will be watching, you can use parental controls on their profiles to make sure that they won’t be watching inappropriate content. If you have a spouse or roommates who will be sharing your account, you can all create separate accounts so that your content is personalized.
At the same time, if there’s someone you watch a lot of the same shows and movies with, you can use a joint profile with them to make things even more convenient.
Stream in 4K HDR
If you’re watching on a compatible device, you can stream your content using 4K HDR to get the highest quality picture available. This feature is available on any device where you see the badge on the landing page for the movie or show you want to watch. You can also search for content that’s available in 4K by browsing under the ‘Ultra HD and HDR’ section on the Disney Plus home page.
Use the Explore Feature
There’s an enormous backlog of content on Disney Plus, and you’ll only see a fraction of it on your home screen. This is where the search and explore feature comes in. Just click the magnifying glass in the menu to search for specific titles or collections so you can find exactly what you want to watch.
Watch Geo-Blocked Content with a VPN
The content available on Disney Plus varies by region. For example, if you live in India you won’t have access to all of the same shows and movies that are available in the United States. However, there is a way for you to view content from regions that are outside of your own.
If you stream Disney Plus with a VPN, it will mask your IP address, giving you access to all of the content in the region of your choice. Just download a VPN and choose a server that’s located in the country where you want to stream content from, and you’ll be able to watch whatever you want wherever you are.
Request Shows and Movies
While Disney Plus does have millions of shows and movies available to watch, there’s still content that’s not available on the platform. If you can’t find something that you really want to watch, you can request up to three titles at a time to be added to the platform through the feedback section in the help center.
Download Content to Watch on the Go
Disney Plus content is always available when you’re connected to the internet, but should you find yourself without a Wi-Fi connection, you’ll want to make sure that you have some shows and movies downloaded for viewing on the go.
You can download any show or movie by clicking on the downward arrow icon on the title screen. To see all of your downloaded content, look for the same downward arrow icon on the toolbar of the app’s menu.
Follow the tips and tricks above to make sure that you and your family are getting the most out of your Disney Plus subscription.
