So what does this mean for parents? According to The Verge, parents can keep an eye on their children’s profiles so they don’t drift into less-than-family-friendly content.

“Disney+ subscribers will be able to set up individual profiles for those they live with; parental controls will automatically be applied for child profiles,” according to The Verge.

Yes, but: Disney revealed in its announcement that it will have content from the Fox brand like “The Simpsons,” “The Princess Bride,” and more that are family friendly, a sign that Disney will want to keep its service on the family friendly side of the spectrum.

Thanks to the 21st Century Fox deal, Disney now owns a majority stake in Hulu, which is where its more adult content will appear.
