Yes, that title seems rather strange considering Disney+, the Mouse House’s streaming service is currently thriving. Since launching in November 2019, the subscription platform already has over 60 million users, and is not available globally. However, despite racing from the start, Disney+ could run out of steam before the finish line, and it’s all because of choice.

We live in an era where people have choice. Want to watch a movie? Choose between multiple services, like Netflix, HBO Max, and Amazon Prime. Want to watch TV? There are thousands of channels, and even YouTube. Music? Say hello to Spotify and Apple Music? Want to play at a casino? Check out the best locations at http://www.nj-licensed-casinos.com/. What about gaming? Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, and PC have you covered.

The point is, people like choice and like having as much of it in one place as possible. On the surface, Disney+ has a vast catalog of content, including movies and TV shows. Let’s be clear, there are thousands of titles to choose from. However, if you’re over the age of 16, there’s a good chance you will find the amount of content Disney+ has is limited.

This portfolio of content includes titles across Disney’s own catalog, and that of FOX, after Disney’s acquisition of the brand two years ago. So, if you’re an adult browsing through Disney+, you may be thinking what all the fuss is about.

You’ll be jumping at joy at first, especially if you love pop culture. Of course, Disney+ is home to all the Marvel Cinematic Universe and all the Star Wars saga. This includes movies in both franchises, all TV shows, and even exclusive content like the excellent “The Mandalorian”.

If you love Star Wars of Marvel, or both, you’re going to find entertainment on Disney+ for a long time. It’s also worth noting the service also has other major franchises on board, such as the Pirates of the Caribbean series and The Simpsons.

Sure, it’s amazing to have Star Wars and the MCU in their entirety under one roof, but most people want more. Of course, there will come a time when you want to watch something more than those franchises and Disney+ may leave you wanting. That’s because there is a clear and obvious lack of adult content.

No, I am not talking about the kind of adult content you need a private browser for. Instead, I mean simply movies that have adult themes, or just not a PG-13 rating. In fact, there are over 500 movies and shows Disney owns that are not available on its platform. Some of these may be missing because of licensing agreements with other platforms, but most are missing because Disney doesn’t want them on the platform.

Ok, perhaps it is fair to say Disney is targeting children and teenagers with this platform. Certainly, there is an obvious focus on child-friendly content, which is why The Simpsons is available but Bob’s Burger or Family Guy are not, and why the Narnia franchise is streaming on Disney+, but the Alien franchise is nowhere to be found.

That’s fine, but Disney could have had its cake and eaten it too. If the company had concerns about allowing kids access to adult-oriented content, why not simply put it behind another password layer? Why not create a separate streaming service?

Disney+ is off to an amazing start, but could a time come in the future where users start looking for alternatives? Needless to say, in this age people pay for more than one monthly streaming service. Let’s hope Disney+ can stay near the top of people’s list. Star Wars and Marvel suggest it can, but who knows unless the service evolves in time.
