Disney+ and Boost

Does the Disney+ App stream in HD, or do I need Boost to get Disney+ in HD?

Re: Disney+ and Boost

Hi @sethrippio 

 

The NOW Boost service only works for NOW Memberships such has NOW Entertainment, NOW Cinema, NOW Sports and has nothing to do with Disney + which is a separate subscription service directly to Disney + (even if you use a NOW branded box or stick).

 

The majority of content on Disney + is either HD or 4K UHD via subscribing directly to Disney + .

Re: Disney+ and Boost

Thanks for the prompt reply. This means I only need to buy Boost on the occasional months when my (Championship) team are televised and I get a Sports day pass!

Cheers, you've saved me several fivers.

Hi @sethrippio 

 

Here's a NOW article linked below about their Boost service for NOW Memberships.

Was just going to get Now TV for the first time in years, but since you still have to pay an extra £5 to get HD quality in 2021 when it should be standard, I will steer clear and buy a Netflix subscription instead. Better content and 4k UHD included in price not low quality 720p streams

Not true.

 

The base price of Netflix is £5.99 per month, and HD costs £4.00 more than that, and 4K a further £4.00:-

Better (rather than different) content is a personal thing, and you can certainly argue that Netflix comes in under Now prices, and that Now doesn’t even give you the chance to have 4K.

 

But from that link you will see that Netflix’ tiered pricing, number of simultaneous streams allowed, etc., has a great deal in common with Now versus Now + Boost.

£14 for top tier Netflix (4 screens + 4K)

£10 for second tier Netflix (2 screens + HD)

£25 for Now Cinema + Ents (3 screens + HD)

@starman73 If you are paying full price for NOW then you're not doing it properly.  😎

I pay £8/month for now cinema + entertainment + boost, but not everyone does.

Then compare like with like, rather than versus other providers who never provide any discounts.
