Disney+ is one of the top streaming services in the world now with more than 200 million users worldwide. You are undoubtedly one of these users. Sometimes, when you’re watching your favorite movie, you can’t quite make out what the characters are saying. If this usually happens to you, don’t worry. How to enable subtitles on Disney+.
How to activate subtitles on Disney+ on your phone/tablet
A good number of people (if not most) primarily watch Disney+ on their mobile devices. It’s just so convenient to open the app on your phone and see the content that way. You will most likely find yourself looking at things on your phone while at the airport or at the bus stop. The only problem with that is that you might not always be able to hear what the characters are saying.
Enabling subtitles on your phone or tablet is pretty much the same. The first thing you’ll want to do is tap the screen to bring up the playback controls. When you do, you’ll see a small icon on the top right of your screen. This is the language menu. Tap it and you’ll see two columns of options pop up.
You will look at the options on the right hand side, those are the subtitle options. Just scroll down until you see the language you want them in. When you press the option, the subtitles will appear immediately.
How to enable subtitles on Disney+ on your TV
There are many times when you need to enable the subtitles on your TV. These can range from crappy speakers to having loads of guests over. Either way, you’ll find yourself reaching for the remote to turn them on.
The process here is similar to activating them on phones and tablets. First, you’ll want to press the “OK” button on the remote to call up the playback controls. This time you won’t see the menu at the top right of the screen. Rather, it will be at the bottom right. When you select that menu, you will see two tabs appear on the screen. The right tab will have the options for the subtitles. Select the ones you want and they will appear.
How to enable subtitles on Disney+ on your computer
Sure, people usually watch Disney+ with their mobile device or TV, but those are the ones who sign up using their computers. Whether using the web client or the dedicated app, they just want to use their computer to look at Cocoa and Encanto.
Enabling the subtitles is the same whether you use the web client or the app. What you want to do is move your mouse over the screen, this will bring up the game options and other menus. Look at the top right of the screen and you will find the language menu.
When you click on it, you will see the same two sets of options. On the right side you will see the options for subtitles. Just click on the ones you want to use.
Prices and plans
From December 8, 2022, Disney+ entered its second pricing phase, and it applied to the other associated services. This led to increased prices and an additional price level. Here is a quick overview of the plans.
First, the price is no longer $7.99/month for a single ad-free plan. That price rose to $10.99/month. With this plan, you can watch all the content without ads.
On December 8, Disney unveiled the new ad-supported plan that costs $7.99/month. With this plan, you still have access to all the content on the platform, but you will see ads placed before and below the content.
There are currently no annual plans for Disney+.
In case you didn’t know, Disney+ can be bundled with Hulu and ESPN+, and combining these services can actually save you money. Let’s start with the cheapest one. You can get a bundle with Disney+ and Hulu (both with ads) for $9.99/month. It looks like it will be one of the more popular options.
Then there’s an all-in-one package that includes Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+, all with ads. This one will drive you back $12.99/month. This brings in the live sports with ESPN+, in case you are also a sports fan.
Last but not least, it is the most expensive package with all three services without ads. This one costs $19.99/month. If this sounds high, just remember that this is the price of a top-tier Netflix subscription. You get three different ad-free services at the highest resolution, and there’s no geo-locking either.
How to choose your plan
Not happy with the price change and you want to edit your plan? Well, you can easily exchange your plan for another one.
