What is Disney plus?
Disney’s subscription-based video streaming service known as Disney+ was launched on November 12, 2019 in the Netherlands, Canada, and the US. Subscribers in these countries can choose from a massive collection of Disney series and movies, such as titles from popular franchises e.g. Lucasfilm, Pixar, Marvel, etc. UK followed in March, while European countries such as Sweden has to wait until September.
For those who want to take the illegal route, don’t need to wait.

Is Disney plus free?
No. The service costs $6.99 a month in the US. £5.99 in the UK.
On a single subscription, four people can stream at the same time. There are different plans available in the US, from the basic Disney+ packages to Hulu ESPN+ Bundle to The Verizon Deal and more. Disney+ is available on many devices, including Apple devices, Amazon devices, PlayStation 4 and Android-based TVs, Google Android phones and tablets, etc. Offline viewing is also available; you can download your favourite movie, documentary, or show and watch it on up to ten devices. That’s pretty impressive. And here are some of the originals available on Disney Plus:
- Lady and the Tramp
- Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made
- Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Candace Against the Universe
- Magic Camp
Upcoming Exclusive Disney+ movies

The Mandalorian Was the First To Drive Up Piracy
Torrent versions of Disney+ titles were immediately set to go wild when Star War’s Mandalorian tv-show was both an exclusive title, and not being launched worldwide. Reportedly it took only three hours for the first episode to get pirated.
The reason behind it is that the approaches taken by Disney, e.g. launching Disney+ in limited areas, etc., forced the fans to turn back to piracy. But it’s also due to the flood of different streaming services we now have. Apple, Netflix, Amazon, HBO – It’s difficult for our wallet to keep up. Even with Disney’s aggressive price point.
Can I download Disney films and shows via an app?
If you have a Disney+ subscription, downloading movies and show for offline viewing isn’t a problem. The official app has a download feature, by simply pressing a download button next to a title. With a solid Wi-fi connection it’s being stored on your device. And surprisingly it works for all titles, the complete library.
Can I download Disney+ films and shows for free?
Yes. You can download Disney+ titles using torrents or magnet links. There are also pirated streaming sites and software, but it’s illegal. Sites like Pirate bay, 1337x and KickassTorrents are currently listing almost the complete library as torrents.
There are even illegal streaming services which provides Netflix, HBO and Disney+ into one. Plus movies. Again, all for free.
The most popular pirate streaming apps are
- Popcorn Time
- Butter Project
All of the above works similar to pirate radio stations back in the day. In theory you get everything for free – At a price. The apps are known to be somewhat unreliable and not always working as intended. Plus the fact that it is illegal.
Is it possible to rip or record Disney+ content?
Yes, you can record your screen. There are numerous ways to do just that on Windows or Mac.
Downloading them straight from Disney plus won’t work however, as it uses a DRM copyright protection system.
