Starting today, the Netherlands gets free exclusive access to Disney’s new streaming service: Disney +!

Two months before the official launch date of November 12, the Netherlands can use Disney + streaming service for free! 

The Netherlands, along with US and Canada, has been chosen to trial the Disney + streaming service. From today we get free and exclusive access to enjoy movies like Iron Man and Avengers before the rest of the world. Yes, please!

What’s on offer at Disney plus in the Netherlands?

Most of the Disney films will be available as well as Pixar, Star Wars and Marvel. Movies can be streamed or downloaded in high quality.

Some films can also be watched in the Dutch version.

The upcoming (Nov 11) and highly anticipated ‘The Mandorlian’ series will not be available on the free Disney plus trial in the Netherlands, some other series won’t be there as well. But if we’re correct, you can finally binge-watch the Simpsons!

How much will Disney + cost in the Netherlands after the free trial?

After being privy to the first two months for free, the service will charge €6.99 per month or €69.99 per year.

Disney previously stated that those with an account can create seven profiles and that up to four devices can use the account simultaneously.

Where can you download Disney + in the Netherlands?

Here are the relevant links to download the service on your device:

Android (TV):

If you’re really eager to get Disney + but aren’t from the Netherlands then there is always a VPN service so that you too can enjoy the Avengers and use Disney + streaming service for free!

And here’s some info on Disney plus in English:

Also, it’s good to know that we’re not sponsored by Disney but if you’re reading this we’ll happily go to Disneyland Paris for a review!

Have you already downloaded Disney + and signed up for it here in the Netherlands? We’d love to hear your experiences with Disney’s new streaming service in the Netherlands 🙂 (and since we’re not sponsored, feel free to complain as well)

Freya was born in Edinburgh but raised in New Zealand (cue every person she meets saying “oh I have always wanted to go there but it’s so far away!”). A restless and curious nature has led her to move countries 5 times in the last 3 years in attempt to find a place she can call home. She contacted DutchReview on a whim and arrived in the Netherlands in summer 2019 to start her internship.


  1. Just signed up. You pay €1 fee for the trail (I used PayPal) which is probably refunded once the payment is validated. You do have to choose a subscription plan upfront. Monthly (6,99) or yearly (69,99).

    Streaming works fine on the mobile but the app does not yet exsist on most smart tv’s so you cannot stream to your tv, unless you have an apple tv or another device that supports airplay.

    Since I have a Samsung Phone as well as a TV, I can use screen mirroring to play the content on the tv. But it means I will not have access to my phone when I am watching as well as hearing the sounds from incomming messages through the disney plus sound.

    Perhaps you can dust off your old android box to hook up to your HDMI or use a laptop for now.

    It’s here, it works but its not as widely supported as YouTube or NetFlix yet,

      • LG WebOS has the Disney app available and works. Not so great over WiFi but that’s my specific issue atm, just moved into a new house and haven’t been able to install network cabling.

  2. I’ve An Sony Android tv with 4K + HDR.
    There are some movies and documentaires in 4K + HDR.
    IT works easily and very good.
    I,’ve 100 Mb download connection.

  3. 1st gen chromecast here.
    There is random delay and distortion during watching: unrecognizable images, rainbow colors, blocked out pixels/squares, etc. It takes a while before it’s back to normal.
    The distortion is much worse whenever we forward or rewind, which is necessary because Disney+ doesn’t ‘remember’ when you’ve paused a movie or tv show. It starts at the beginning every time…

    Then there is a interface issue Disney would be smart to adapt: being (un)able to select/skip to the next episode of a tv show. Now you have to retrace your steps, look for the list with episodes and select the next one. And it would come to no surprise should you later be able to automatically watch the next episode, bingewatching made easy, just like Netflix offers….

    That’s all she wrote for now.

  4. Unfortunately not all the movies are available in English.
    That’s a real pity because right now there is no legal way to watch some Disney films online in English in the Netherlands!!
