About a year ago, I signed up for Disney+. I did it mainly for The Mandalorian. After I watched season one of that, I really did not find much else for me to watch. I watched a few Pixar movies I hadn’t seen in the theatres and a series of behind the scenes episodes for The Mandalorian. Those were the only things I watched that I felt like were of real interest to me. I was foolish and bought an annual subscription.
If you’re talking pure value, at least for me personally, Netflix has been a better choice. At the end of December, is when my annual subscription to Disney+ is up for renewal. I cancelled it. Season two of The Mandalorian is being dripped out week by week now. If there are eight episodes for season two, like there was for season one, I should be able to finish it all before I have no more Disney+.
Two weeks ago, I signed up for Amazon Prime, so that I could watch the new Borat movie. I was thinking I’d do the free month and then cancel but I have been pleasantly surprised. Amazon Prime is really good. The mix of original content and other movies and TV shows appeals to me. There’s a lot more there that appeals to my taste in entertainment. I’ve already binged all four seasons of The Man in the High Castle. I’ve now started watching The Boys as well. I will probably start paying for Amazon Prime, at least into the new year and see how it goes.
If Disney+ ever gets more content that I’d like to see, I’ll just wait until all episodes are available and just subscribe for a single month and then cancel again.
