Disney+ has over a thousand movies and TV series and the best way to transverse that large library? Search by genres. And no streaming service has more genres available than Disney+’s main rival, Netflix. Wait Netflix? NOT Disney+? Yeah I know, but let me explain.
What Genres Are Available To Search Through On Disney+?
The genres you can search through on Disney+ within movies include Action/Adventure, Animation, Comedy, Drama, Documentary, Shorts and Kids.
For TV Series you can search through the Action/Adventure, Animation, Comedy, Docuseries, and Kids.
What Genres Does Netflix Have That Disney+ Lacks?
Numerous, including Anime, Black Stories, British, Crime, Horror, International, Reality, Sci-fi/Fantasy, Teen, Thriller, Chat Shows & Stand Up, LGBTQ+, and Musicals.
Why Are So Many Genres Lacking On Disney+?
Some of the genres Disney could easily just add onto Disney+ such as the Teen, Sci-fi/Fantasy and Musicals genres. All they’d have to do is add a bunch of their TV-PG and TV-14 series. They could also add the genres for Musicals and Sci-fi/Fantasy based on the large film collection Disney+ has in those genres.
Editors Note: As Ethan diplomatically alludes – many genres are missing because the Disney Plus library is quite small compared to its competitors and extremely skewed towards preschool content. A recent chart put out by Nielsen is sobering. If I can find it again I’ll edit it in.
