Disney Plus has been given a new launch date in the UK

Disney have announced this morning that their long anticipated streaming service Disney Plus is set for an earlier launch date.

Disney has announced that Disney+ will launch a week earlier across Western Europe, with a new date set for March 24th.

The new date of launch allows fans in the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria, and Switzerland to access Disney’s content a week earlier, while Belgium, the Nordics, and Portugal, to follow in summer 2020.

Disney+ is already available in the Netherlands, as it was initial country that Disney used to test the service before launching in the USA.

The streaming service launched with content from Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic and has already become one of the biggest platforms to date with an estimated 24 million U.S. subscribers by the end of November 2019.

Subscribers will be able to enjoy the Disney+ experience on nearly all major mobile and connected TV devices at launch, including gaming consoles, streaming media players, and smart TVs. It’ll include high-quality and ad-free viewing, up to four concurrent streams, unlimited downloads on up to ten devices, personalised recommendations, and the ability to set up to seven different profiles (which includes the ability for parents to set Kids Profiles that have an easy-to-navigate, child-friendly interface to access age-appropriate content).

Pricing has also been confirmed by the company at £5.99/€6.99 per month, or £59.99/€69.99 for an annual subscription.

There has been no confirmation of a trial period as of yet.
