Disney+ are beginning to crack down on password sharing
There is also a cheaper subscription plan incoming for customers in Northern Ireland.
Password crackdowns must be all the rage within streaming services lately, what with Netflix launching an immediate change to their policies on the matter two months ago.
As reported by IGN, Disney+ are next to follow suit, with Disney CEO Bob Iger announcing that the streaming service is kicking off a restructure with a price increase and an updated policy on password sharing:

The new Standard With Ads tier has already launched successfully in the US, with the new rollout for the UK kicking off on Wednesday 1 November. JOE reached out Disney+, who confirmed this new cheaper tier will not be made available for customers in the Republic of Ireland.
