What is Disney+ Day and When is it This Year?

With so many Black Friday deals floating around earlier than ever this year, lots of great promotions, and, of course, the holidays coming, it’s probably no surprise that Disney is joining the fun! This year, they’re kicking things off Black Friday-style with an event called Disney+ Day! It is both a celebration of the streaming service’s success and the holiday shopping spirit, but just what is it exactly? More importantly, when is Disney+ Day?

Disney+ Day is on Friday, November 12, and it will feature a host of events, including a great deal for new and returning subscribers. According to Disney, “Disney+ subscribers, and fans will enjoy exclusive offers, surprise moments, exclusive entertainment, content premieres from all of the service’s marquee brands, and much more.” We’ll be getting new releases and exclusive content from properties like Disney, Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, National Geographic, and more. But also, up until Sunday, November 14, new and returning subscribers can sign up for a Disney+ subscription for just $2, for the first month. You won’t have long to claim that deal, so hurry!

What is Paramount Plus? The Ultimate Beginner’s Guide
paramount plus free trial  icon

Previously known as CBS All Access, Paramount Plus is steadily becoming a streaming service worth paying attention to. Newly relaunched in 2021, it offers some great movies and shows even if it's not as high-profile as some alternatives. If you need to know more about it, read on while we answer pretty much every question you could possibly have about Paramount's streaming service.
What is Paramount Plus?
Paramount Plus's origins begin under a different name. The streaming service owned and operated by Paramount Global was first called CBS All Access. It launched on October 28 2014 before being expanded and rebranded as Paramount Plus on March 4, 2021, following the 2019 re-merger of CBS and Viacom. Since then, the service has gradually expanded both in terms of content and in terms of its reach. Originally launched in the U.S., the service has expanded to international markets, starting with Latin America and the already existing Canadian service. Since then, Nordic countries have followed along with Australia.

Paramount Plus offers quite a lot of content and all of it is, of course, owned by Paramount. Since its relaunch, it has offered true crime series such as The Real Criminal Minds, as well as a revival of the BET series, The Game, a drama based on Albert S. Ruddy's experiences filming The Godfather called The Offer, and much more. As expected from most streaming services, content is varied to cater to the whole family while ensuring there's something for every mood too. The service includes content from MTV, VH1, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, BET, and Smithsonian Channel, so there's generally something for everyone. In all, the catalog numbers more than 30,000 television series episodes and up to 1,000 film titles.

What is the Disney Plus Bundle?
The Disney Plus Bundle, also known as The Disney Bundle, is one of the best ways to sign up to Disney Plus if you love to have plenty of streaming options. It offers tremendous value by bundling together three very popular streaming services into one simple payment each month. You won't have to worry about maintaining multiple different payment methods here as everything is done from one straightforward location. If you like to be organized while still benefiting from some of the best streaming content out there, this is the perfect way to do exactly that.

The service bundles together Disney Plus, Hulu (ad-supported), and ESPN+ into one easy monthly payment of just $14 per month. That works out to $6 less per month than if you signed up for each of them individually. Signing up is just as simple as when signing up to Disney Plus. All you need to do is create your Disney Plus account then click Get The Disney Bundle rather than click Sign up for Disney Plus only. From there, you use your Disney Plus username and password to log in to ESPN+ with a separate email coming to help you activate Hulu.
