Disney Announces Huge Digital Sale, Tons Of Movies Heavily Discounted

Disney Plus

If you’re looking to expand your home video library and catch up on some movies during these trying times, Disney just gave your bank account a little breathing room. The Mouse House is offering a number of promotions as part of an on-going flash sale which begins this week. Many of their movies will be available for digital purchase for $4.99. In addition, the films are broken up into categories and each one will have its own sales period.

The first category, called “Feel Good Movies,” started on April 14th and features a mixture of musical and romantic comedies including Bohemian Rhapsody and Pretty Woman. This selection of films, which you can see in full below, is available until April 20th, when the next group begins.

You might be asking yourself, why would I want to pay $5 for these movies when I can just subscribe to Disney Plus for the same monthly price and stream all of them instead? Well, I had the same thought, but the answer is that many titles available to purchase are not on the streaming service currently, including a number of popular Fox movies like Die Hard, Speed and Dodgeball.

If there’s a silver lining to self-quarantining during this global pandemic, it’s that many entertainment companies, like Disney, have been making their content available at either a reduced price or by offering an extended free trial. Or, they’re skipping the theatrical experience altogether.

Birds of Prey was available at a discounted price last week and television networks like HBO and Showtime are offering 30-day free trials, which is more than double the usual trial period. Ever wanted to watch The Sopranos, The Wire and Billions in their entirety? Now’s the time to do it.
