Disney+ is the Best Option for Watching Disney Movies & TV Shows on PlayStation 4
Disney+ first launched on November 12, 2019, and it’s Disney’s first real venture into the world of VOD (video-on-demand) streaming, which is currently dominated by industry titans such as Hulu, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.
There are many other companies that have tried to do the same thing, but Disney seems to be in a great position to get a big chunk of the market with Disney+. This streaming service has an enormous library of Disney content that you can’t find anywhere else, as well as great features and solid device support – all for a reasonable price.
Let’s take a deeper look at Disney+ now, and discuss why it’s the best option if you want to watch Disney movies and TV shows on PlayStation 4.
Disney+ content library
Perhaps the best asset that Disney has is its huge library of original content from franchises and studios like Pixar, Star Wars, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, just to name a few. In total, Disney+ has more than 500 movies and 7,500 episodes of TV.
This number is sure to grow in the future, too, as Disney reclaims its licensed content and releases new movies.

Is Disney Content Going To Disappear From Other Streaming Services?
For now, you can watch Disney content on some other streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video. In the future, though, Disney content will probably only be available on Disney+.
Disney has already shown that it’s willing to cut deals to get its content back on the Disney+ platform quickly, and is likely going to continue this trend during the coming months and years. As the content rights for its shows and movies expire, it seems likely that Disney will likely simply add its original movies and shows to Disney+ instead of shopping them out to third-party streaming companies like Netflix.
