Disney + is available on many platforms, almost all, you might dare say. In France, Canal + has won by allowing almost all of its subscribers to access Disney + without additional costs.

Which Canal + offers include Disney +?

Access to the Disney streaming service is included in all offers associated with a two-year commitment period. A new limited offer offering Canal +, Canal + Décalé and Disney + has even seen the light of day for € 19.90 per month (for 2 years, then € 26.89 / month). For a one-year commitment, only the basic Canal + offer and its Sport offer do not include Disney +.

Canal + offers 30 days of trial, compared to 7 at Disney +

Note that if Disney + only offers 7 days to try its service, you have free access for 30 days by opting for a Canal + formula. Like the competition, the group offers a free month to try. This allows you to get three weeks of subscription to Disney +, which can be interesting in times of confinement.

How do I add Disney + to my Canal + account?

But it is also former Canal + subscribers who may be interested in this new Disney +. Those who have an eligible offer, such as those indicated above, must have received an email from Canal + on April 7 which invites them to join the Disney platform at no additional cost. The handling is not the easiest. You have to go through the link in this email to link your Canal + account to a new Disney + account. Here we detail the procedure.

Those who do not have a Canal + account must create one here. Then just follow the link “I activate my Disney + account”. A new Canal + page opens in your browser. It creates a tunnel between your subscription and Disney +.

There is an operation to be carried out afterwards. Once the configuration is complete, Disney + sends you an email explaining the procedure to follow in managing your subscription.
