Disney Plus offers a large catalogue of both old and new movies out of Disney’s massive library, adding to it exceptional originals (content created specifically for the streaming service) like The Mandalorian or Loki. Disney Plus has its service on a variety of platforms. On phones and laptops, there is a straightforward app of Disney Plus or its website, which can be used to easily access the service. However, on TVs and other platforms, there is a chance of it getting complicated. If you have tried to log into Disney Plus on your TV, you are probably familiar with the phrase Disneyplus.com/begin. We explain what Disneyplus.com/begin is and explain how to log into your Disney Plus accounts on your TVs and other platforms.

Explaining Disney Plus

After the rise of Netflix, a lot of streaming sites came up, like Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Zee5 to name a few. This was especially impacted through the quarantine period due to Covid-19, which made people stay at home and thus theaters were closed. Streaming services with a lot of content to watch at a low price was a wonderful deal for many, and the industry boomed. Disney, being an established entertainment giant, did not want to miss out on the new industry trend and potentially lose money. There already were a few Disney movies on various platforms, but Disney wanted to expand its platform exclusively for Disney content.

And thus, Disney Plus was launched on 12th November 2019. Disney had a lot of movies from various famous and established giants like Marvel Cinematic Universe, Star Wars, and of course its Pixar production cartoon and live-action movies. Having such an impressive roster, and releasing special MCU-connected series’ like WandaVision and Loki, created a massive buzz and gained large number of subscriptions in a very short period. Currently, it rivals Netflix and Amazon Prime, having around 157.8 million active subscriptions, which is a very impressive number.

It has also collaborated with Hotstar in India, bundling a joint subscription as Disney Plus Hotstar, offering both platforms’ worth of content. Disney Plus offers a specific way of logging into the service on platforms other than smartphones or laptops (the app or website works fine for these) with the 8-digit code system through Disneyplus.com/begin. We go about explaining how it works below.
