How to Change Language on Disney Plus
Disney Plus is finally here and it’s definitely lived up to the huge expectations everyone had for it. This brand-new service is quite easy to use, but people are still figuring out the specifics. One of the questions that get asked a lot is how to change the language on Disney Plus?
Read on to find out how to change the language into other available options. In general, the language support still isn’t that great. Then again, the service has just been released, and only in Canada, the United States, and the Netherlands.
How to Change the Language on the Disney Plus
Changing the language on Disney Plus isn’t difficult at all. Here are the instructions, as per the official Disney Plus support website:
- After you’ve subscribed for Disney Plus and signed into your account, play any TV show or movie available on the platform.
- When the content starts playing, a box will pop up in the top-right corner of your screen. Click on the box.
- The box is the language selection menu. Choose one of the available languages and then choose the subtitles as well.
Enjoy watching Disney Plus in your own language, or even a second language. When you sign in to the Disney Plus app or website, your language preferences will be saved. That means that you won’t have to change the subtitles every time you want to watch a TV show or a movie.
With a Disney Plus subscription, you get up to seven profiles you can share with family members and friends. This way, you can all watch your favorite Disney Plus shows and movies in your preferred language.
Which Language Is Default on the Disney Plus?
You may think that English is the default language for Disney Plus, but that’s not true. The default language is the one your device is using (the device you use to stream Disney Plus). Disney Plus supports many devices, including computers, smartphones, streaming boxes, and even next-gen gaming consoles.
You can change the language preferences freely at your convenience. Unfortunately, Disney Plus is still region-locked, i.e. it can’t be viewed in many countries and continents. But that will all change in the near future.
Disney announced the release of Disney Plus in the United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, France, and Germany on March 31st, 2020. That date may change, but it will surely release in these countries in the second, if not the first quarter of 2020.
What If You Can’t Change the Language on Disney Plus?
There are some exceptions where you simply won’t be able to change the language on Disney Plus. Some streaming boxes don’t have this option yet, so check the list of supported devices and the support sites of said devices.
You can contact Disney Plus support if you have difficulties with the language options for Disney Plus. Remember that some of the older movies and shows simply don’t have any subtitles available. If the content is from the 60s or even older, don’t get your hopes up.
Modern-day content should have subtitles in many languages (Italian, French, Spanish, Dutch, German), and more options are sure to follow. The most anticipated languages for Disney Plus are probably Italian, Portuguese, Hindi, Mandarin, and Russian.
They will probably be available when Disney releases its service for the countries where these languages are spoken. It would be a smart decision, however, to release Disney Plus as soon as possible across the entire globe, while it’s still new and so many people are interested.
For many, Netflix is still a better option since it offers better language support, and is available in many countries where you can’t get Disney Plus.
Learning Languages with Disney
Disney cartoons are the reason why many previous generations learned how to speak English. Here’s a final suggestion for you, try learning English with Disney Plus. The content on Disney Plus is mostly suited for children, and it can be a great way to get your children interested in English if it isn’t your primary language.
If you can’t be bothered with learning English, you can easily change the language to Dutch, French, or Spanish on the Disney Plus app or website. More languages are sure to follow as Disney Plus expands its coverage across the world.
