Netflix has spoiled us since the beginning with loading all episodes of a series right onto the streaming platform and honestly, they are the ones to credit for the ‘binge watching’ session.

But now that Disney+ is making their debut in the streaming world, all of that is about to change because Disney has decided to not put all episodes onto the platform at once. Instead, episodes will be loaded weekly.

So, if you had planned to join Disney+ then binge watch all of The Mandalorian, you are going to have to pay for at least 3 months to watch it all.

The Verge reporter Julia Alexander believes that the weekly roll-out is a strategic move for Disney, designed to keep subscribers paying for longer. Which would make sense. She said:

“The weekly release model is a smart move for Disney — and potentially any new streaming service that’s initially focused on building a subscriber base, rather than servicing a demanding, preexisting one.

Tying new content to beloved franchises, then doling it out a bit at a time is a way for Disney, in particular, to keep subscribers hooked.

When Disney+ launches, people who want to watch all of Jon Favreau’s Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, will need to keep their subscriptions active for at least a couple of months.

While cord-cutters routinely look for ways to dip in and out of new services, bingeing the content they care about, Disney is looking to keep its initial subscribers stable while adding more throughout the year. The strategy is crucial for Disney to reach its estimated goal of around 10 million customers by the end of 2020.”

So, get ready to change everything you are used to because not only is Disney+ taking us on the weekly viewing session, so is Apple TV+.

What do you think? Will this keep you from joining Disney+?
