Disney is arriving in the UK earlier than expected – Pricing revealed 

Disney was initially due to release in the UK on March 31st, over four months after the streaming service’s US launch. Now, Disney has confirmed that the service will arrive earlier than expected in the UK, Ireland, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Austria and Switzerland, establishing a new launch date of March 24th.

In the UK, Disney Plus will cost users £5.99 per month, or £59.99 annually, making it more expensive than Disney’s existing DisneyLife streaming platform. Disney will feature more content than Disney Life and feature 4K streaming capabilities, making the service more valuable, at least in Disney’s eyes. DisneyLife will be retired with the release of Disney . In the US/Europe, Disney costs $6.99/€6.99 per month and $69.99/€69.99 annually. 

Disney has likely moved its UK release of Disney forward in an attempt to thwart piracy for its flagship programming, such as The Mandalorian. However, UK viewers will still need to wait over two months for the service to release in their home nation.      

Disney plans to expand Disney across more European nations later in 2020, with plans to bring the service to Belgium, Portugal and Nordic countries this summer.
