The new streaming service Disney+ is to launch on 24 March in the UK, a week earlier than originally planned.
Pricing has also been revealed - it will cost £5.99 per month or £59.99 a year, making it more expensive than the earlier DisneyLife platform. Disney+ launched in the US and Canada in November, where it became the most downloaded app. The new launch date may be an attempt to tackle piracy of shows like The Mandalorian, suggested one expert. The other European countries that will receive Disney+ at the same time as the UK are Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria and Switzerland.
Disney+ will become available in Belgium, Portugal and Nordic countries in the summer of 2020.
