In December, Disney launched a brand new ad-supported subscription offering for Disney+ in the United States.
However, initially, this ad-supported plan was not accessible on Roku devices, causing frustration among Roku users who could not access Disney+ at a lower cost with ads.
Recently, Disney+ has updated its Roku Channel, making the ad-supported plan now available on Roku players as well. This update provides more flexibility and options to Roku users and allows them to enjoy the same ad-supported content as other streaming device users on Disney+.
Disney+ Basic subscribers can enjoy the full content catalog and key product features that are also offered on a Disney+ Premium plan. This includes:
- Exclusive Originals & Library Content – an ever-growing collection of thousands of titles across films, documentaries, series, and shorts, plus unprecedented access to Disney’s long history of incredible film and television entertainment
- Profiles – create up to seven profiles per account, with the ability to set profile PINs and content ratings by profile through Parental Controls
- Concurrent Viewing – stream on up to four supported devices simultaneously
- High-Quality Video Formats – including, where supported, 4K Ultra HD, Dolby Vision, Full HD, HDR10, and Expanded Aspect Ratio with IMAX Enhanced
That said, Downloads, GroupWatch, and SharePlay are not available to Disney+ Basic subscribers.
