Disney+ offers huge discount days after show with 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating drops

Disney+ offers huge discount days after show with 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating drops

Everyone loves a discount

The cost of signing up to streaming services like Netflix, Prime Video, Apple TV+ and Disney+ has increased significantly in recent years, which is why it's important to take advantage of a discount when the time is right.

Netflix now sets you back £17.99 a month for its premium plan, with the cheapest package (including adverts) coming in at £6.99.

Over on Prime Video, Amazon has also introduced adverts. To get rid of them you'll have to pay another £2.99 every month.

And last year, Disney+ upped its prices. It's also cracking down on password sharing. Now, a monthly ad-free subscription with them rose from £7.99 to £10.99. There are tips and tricks to keep costs down for those looking to be a bit more money-savvy in the streaming age.

As we head in to March, Disney+ has launched a huge deal that could save you up to just short of £30 in the next three months.

The offer lets customers sign up for £1.99 a month for the next three months. If they do this, it'll be the standard plan and comes with adverts, but at the lower cost it may well be worth it in the short term.

You have to move fast to take up the offer, with it running out on Thursday, 14 March.

It's also only available to 'new and eligible returning subscribers only', Disney says, with the plan auto-renewing at £4.99 on its standard plan with ads.

Disney+ is home to absolutely tonnes of great content, including the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Bear, and Welcome to Wrexham. There's lots for the kids too, including Disney films such as Moana, Encanto, Beauty and the Beast and the Toy Story collection.

And coming to Disney+ the day after the offer ends is Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour (Taylor's Version), a new and extended concert film from her current worldwide tour.

But right now we're not too interested in that. No, our eyes are on a new show that dropped on Disney+ just a matter of days ago.

It's already certified fresh, with a 100% rating with Rotten Tomatoes critics.

The series follows the aftermath of a mysterious European ship found marooned in a Japanese nearby fishing village, where secrets are discovered that could tip the scales of power and devastate enemies.

It's set in feudal Japan in the early 17th century, and is based on a real life power struggle that saw the birth of the Tokugawa Shōgunate; a feudal government that ruled Japan for nearly 200 years.

We're talking about Shogun, which arrived on Disney+ at the end of February.

Watch the trailer here:

The 10-episode series, which is in Japanese and English, will release weekly episodes.

It is based on the 1975 novel of the same name by James Clavell.

Pat Stacey, from the Irish Independent, said: "Showrunners Rachel Kondo and Justin Marks are not preoccupied with reinventing the wheel... what they do is make the wheel bigger and shinier by throwing all the tricks modern filmmaking technology has to offer at the screen."

Shogun is on Disney+.

Wenlei Ma, from The Nightly (AU), said: "You’ll want to take all of Shogun in - its grand themes of power, diplomacy, betrayal and war, its expensive production values, the visual mastery and choreography of its action scenes and its unflinching depiction of arbitrary violence."
