period of time.
Like many services, Disney Plus is designed in such a way that several profiles can be created on one account, depending on how much you pay for the subscription. The upside to having many profiles is that each individual can watch and monitor their progress, without the need to remember where they are stopped as the app keeps track.
Despite its growing reach, Disney Plus is still not yet available in some countries, especially in Africa and most of Asia. Watching Disney Plus with a VPN is not illegal, so people in other parts of the world can enjoy its content using VPN until its reach spreads to their region.
Some network and TV providers are in collaboration with Disney Plus, meaning that subscribers who use those networks and TV services are eligible to use Disney Plus at discounted rates. Of course, some of those services are restricted to certain zones.
