Disney+ is Now Available As a Closed Beta To A Few Lucky Testers

Recently we heard that Disney had started beta testing for Disney+ in the Netherlands. Now we can confirm that Disney has started to beta test Disney+ in the United States and other parts of Europe. This is thanks to some Playstation 4 beta testers posting details about the test on Reddit. This news does lineup with reports that Roku and PlayStation 4 will be the first devices to get Disney+.

We are not sure how Disney is picking the lucky few who get to test out Disney+ but Disney has started to select a small handful of Americans to test out the new service. These beta tests are used so services like Disney+ can test out their apps and features before it goes live to everyone. The hope is to use the beta test with real users to find the bugs before the service goes live.

Disney+ won’t officially launch until November 12th, 2019. It will cost $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year. Roku and PS4 support have been announced with Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, Xbox, and more coming soon according to Disney. Disney+ will support offline viewing by allowing you to download movies and TV shows.

Beta invites into Disney+ will likely be highly sought after as a Global Web Index survey showed that 69% of respondents were open to paying for the upcoming Disney+ streaming service. Sadly though we don’t know how you can apply for the beta test.

Here is what the Disney app looks like according to Disney’s announcement in the spring:

For now, no beta tester has posted anything more than a link to the beta app on the PS4. Hopefully, someone will post more details soon. If we learn more we will post updates.
