You will need to sign-up for Disney+ at the official website or app to watch The Bad Batch as the free trial went away when quarantine ramped-up and subscriptions naturally skyrocketed as a result. Subscribing, even if only for a month, allows you to jump right in and watch as much of The Bad Batch and other shows/movies on the platform as you have time for.
The cost for Disney Plus remains one of the cheapest of all streaming services at only $7.99 a month. Subscribers get more than their money’s worth with seemingly endless Star Wars, Pixar, Disney, Marvel and National Geographic content to choose from.
Disney is also offering an option of subscribing for $79.99 a year that drops the price down to $6.67 a month, over a dollar a month less than going month-to-month.
Disney+ Hulu ESPN+ Bundle
There is also a $13.99 a month bundle option that includes Disney+, ESPN+ and the ad-supported version of Hulu. This deal dubbed “Get All Three” is fantastic and many folks have already jumped in with both feet and endless hours of streaming options.
If you already have a Hulu account then you will receive a bill credit for each month that you’re subscribed to the bundle deal.
Look for the Disney+ app to show up on a variety of devices including Xbox and PlayStation gaming consoles; LG, Samsung and Sony TVs, Roku boxes, and Amazon Fire TV boxes and Fire Sticks.
You’ll need to install the latest update to have the Disney+ app appear after registering your Get All Three account.
Star Wars: The Bad Batch Preview
Clone Force 99 tries to find a new purpose in The Bad Batch, a spin-off series from The Clone Wars that picks up the story of these genetically altered clones short after The Clone Wars came to a close.
Hunter, Wrecker, Tech, Crosshair, and Echo will quickly discover that they don’t necessarily fit into the newly formed Galactic Empire’s plans with their disobedience.
In their new adventure look for the Bad Batch to run across the likes of Fennic Shand, Saw Gerrera, Captain Rex, and possibly some other recognizable faces from other Star Wars stories.
The official description for The Bad Batch reads:
“Star Wars: The Bad Batch follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch (first introduced in “The Clone Wars”) as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War. Members of Bad Batch—a unique squad of clones who vary genetically from their brothers in the Clone Army—each possess a singular exceptional skill that makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew.”
