Streaming is becoming the new norm as COVID-19 has boosted its effect on home entertainment. Disney surpassed over 73 million subscribers on its service since the pandemic. Disney+ jumped from 33.5 million subscribers in its second quarter to 57.5 million by its third quarter. Unfortunately, Netflix subscriber growth is slowing down since COVID.

With an overwhelming amount of content from services like HBO Max and Netflix, you may be wondering how to set up a streaming subscription. It’s quite simple and you can choose any plan that works for you.


There are two plans you can choose from if you want HBO Max. The plan with ads is $9.99 a month. You’ll be able to watch thousands of series and movies, but the 2021 same-day premiere titles won’t be available. The ad-free plan is $14.99. If you get this plan you’ll have access to everything and the same-day premieres. You can also pay yearly for both options.

Once you figure out the plan you’d like, it’ll take you to a tab where you can write down your personal information. You’ll be required to type your first and last name, put down your email address, and a password you’d like. Next, you’ll have to add a payment method. After, you’re finally able to start watching.


You may want to look at Disney+ If you’re interested in watching Marvel and Star Wars-esque content. Disney+ costs $8 a month or $80 a year depending on the plan you’d like. There’s also a bundle that includes Hulu and ESPN+.

It starts at $14 a month, and I think it’s a steal. First, you’ll have to enter your email address and password. Next, choose your subscription type and enter your payment method. Finally, start watching.


Subscribe to Netflix if you’re interested in a multitude of movies and shows. Netflix has three different plans. Netflix has a basic plan that’s $8.99 a month. The basic plan only runs movies and shows in standard definition. The standard plan is $13.99 a month and allows you to watch anything in HD. Finally, premium is $17.99 a month. It offers its programming in Ultra HD.

When you sign up you should choose the best plan for you. Next, create an account by entering your email address and password. Finally, enter a payment method. Netflix gift cards can also be used. You will be able to enjoy thousands of movies and shows.

There are many different services to appreciate and enjoy. It’s all about finding the best one for you. If you’re interested in newer films and movies in theaters during the same time they premiere digitally, subscribe to HBO Max. Check out Netflix if you love cinema.
