A deep library of shows and movies plus its own originals sometimes releases big-screen movies to watch the same time they first hit theaters.
That extra fee just lifted for Marvel’s Black Widow, which early Wednesday morning became available to stream at no added cost for all Disney Plus subscribers. Coming up, both Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Jungle Cruise will become available to stream at no added cost on Nov. 12 in the case of Shang-Chi, that’ll be the first time it’s available to stream at all.
Most programming on Disney Plus like Luca, Loki, The Mandalorian, WandaVision and almost everything else is available to watch at no added cost. Jungle Cruise, Black Widow and other movies like Cruella were different. They debuted on the service through the Premier Access model, which requires a $30 payment on top of the regular price of a Disney Plus subscription.
But Disney’s latest theatrical releases are hitting cinemas exclusively at first, casting doubt on whether Disney Plus will keep this Premier Access, same-day streaming option alive for more movies in the future. Free Guy was released only in theaters in mid-August. Shang-Chi was its latest theatrical exclusive, and Eternals is set to come out only in theaters on Nov. 5.
Also, keep in mind: Disney Plus raised prices this year, and last year it eliminated its seven-day free trial for new members.
When is films streaming release date?
No Time to Die will become available to stream on Disney Plus on Nov. 12 at no extra cost to subscribers, after it was released in theaters exclusively starting Sept. 3.
Previously during the pandemic, Disney released all its new movies on Disney Plus in some way. A Bings Dierenverhalen 2021 of new film nedherland, like its latest Pixar movies Queenpins and Poeslief 2, skipped theaters entirely and were available to stream on Disney Plus at no extra cost. Others like the latest Marvel movie before Free Guy 2021 hit theaters and Disney Plus the same day, available to stream only by paying an extra $30 fee known as Premier Access.
How do I stream film with Premier Access?
Jungle Cruise is available through Disney Plus’ Premier Access model. With Premier Access, films cost $30 to unlock on top of the price you pay for a Disney Plus subscription.
You can purchase access to these films on Disneyplus.com and in the service’s apps for Apple (including iPhones), Google (including Android phones), Amazon, Roku and other platforms. The service will automatically prompt you to pay up with your payment method already on file and request that you enter details like a credit card CVV number.
Purchasers are able to watch Jungle Cruise and Black Widow for as long as they remain active Disney Plus subscribers. In this way, Premier Access isn’t like unlocking an online rental that expires. Once you pay for a Premier Access title like Jungle Cruise or Black Widow, you can keep watching it for as long as your account remains active.
