It’s official: Disney+ lands in the UK on March 24th
UPDATE: Since the official announcements last November (see below), Disney has now announced further details of its Disney+ service in the UK. It’ll now launch a week earlier than originally announced, and thus will be with us on March 24th. Furthermore, the pricing will be £5.99 per month for the service, with an annual subscription costing £59.99.
Here’s our earlier story…
Well, the speculation is over. Disney+, the Netflix-rivalling streaming service from Disney, launches in the US on November 12th, but until now, there had been no fixed UK date. The only vague hint we got was ‘Q1 2020’. We dug into some of the reasons behind that in this piece.
But now we have firm confirmation of a release date: 31st March 2020. That pushes that Q1 2020 number as far as it can, and it comes with a warning that titles included on the service will vary from territory to territory. But still: in the UK, Germany, France, Italy and Span, Disney+ will be up and active at the end of March.
No pricing details as of yet, but expect its monthly fee to undercut that of Netflix. More as we hear it…
