Disney will add films and TV shows with 15 and 18 certificates to Disney+ in the UK next year – and put the price up as well.
Disney has not only confirmed over the past 24 hours a whole lot of new material for its Disney+ streaming channel, it’s made a couple of significant announcements about the platform itself as well.
Firstly, the price is going up. From February next year, the cost is set to rise by two euros, which is likely to equate to £2 in the UK. The current monthly price for the service is £5.99 a month, although many people took advantage of an initial special offer to get their first year of it for £50. £7.99 from early next year seems the likely new cost though.
However, with that bump comes something new. From February 23rd 2021 a new adult section (not that kind) is being integrated into Disney+, by the name of Star. With that will come films and TV shows that break the self-imposed 12A upper limit on material for the service thus far.
Finally, this opens the doors to lots of the films and shows Disney acquired when it bought up the vast bilk of the Fox empire. Expect, there, the likes of Die Hard, the Alien saga, Planet Of The Apes, Modern Family and The Americans for a start.
Exact details of what material will be added will follow in due course.
More as we hear it.
