What time is Disney+ released tomorrow? UK release date, price and Netflix comparison – The Sun

DISNEY fans can't wait for its new streaming service, which is set to rival online giants such as Netflix and Amazon.

Europe will be able to access the new platform which will have blockbusters like Star Wars, Marvel and Pixar movies.

What is Disney +?

Disney Plus is a video streaming service, with a paid subscription, which is free from advertising and has content from Disney and Fox.

Also, exclusive TV shows, movies, documentaries and shorts will be available on the service.

Content from Marvel, Lucasfilm (i.e Star Wars), Pixar, National Geographic and all 30 seasons of The Simpsons is included too.

In addition, Disney’s other streaming services – Hulu and ESPN Plus – will run on the same platform.

When time does Disney + launch in the UK?

The service has been available in the USA, Canada and the Netherlands from November 12, 2019, and launching in Australia and New Zealeand, from November 19 2019.

However, viewers in the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria, and Switzerland will be able to stream from TOMORROW, March 24, 2020 at midnight.

There's some good news though, as Eager Disney fans can currently save a tenner on the price if they pre-order it now for just £49.99.

By paying £49.99 for the year, you'll be able to watch all the films and programmes on the channel for the equivalent of £4.17 a month.

The offer is available until TODAY (March 23), the day before the new service is launched, after which a year’s subscription will cost £59.99, equivalent to £4.99 a month. You can sign up here.

The deal is available to all users, even those who already have Disney Life.

There is also the option to pay monthly, but that will cost £5.99 a month – or £71.88 over a year.

It's also worth noting that if you sign up for the Disney+ pre-launch deal with the annual subscription option, you are charged the full amount immediately, although you won't be able to stream until the service begins next month.

Your subscription will also be renewed on March 24, 2021 (if you sign up before then) at the higher standard price unless you actively cancel beforehand.

You can cancel your subscription at any time, although you will not get a refund for any months you haven't used.

Western Europe markets such as Belgium, the Nordics, and Portugal will have access to the streaming platform from this summer.

How to watch Disney +?

Disney has openly said the streaming service will be supported by a number of devices, including phones, tablets, computers, games consoles, connected TVs and streaming media boxes.

Disney+ will allow users the luxury of unlimited downloads on as many as ten different devices, personalised recommendations and being able to set up to seven different profiles.

Parents can monitor their children's activity on the streaming platform with Kids Profiles, that has an easy- to -navigate, child-friendly interface to access age-appropriate content.

How much will Disney + cost?

Disney said the service will cost $7 a month, or $70 a year in the US, which is less than half that of its competitor Netflix at £13 ($16) monthly.

Pricing has also been confirmed at £5.99/per month in the UK, or £59.99/€69.99 for a year's subscription.

However you can pre-order your subscription up to March 23 to get it  for £49.99, the day before the new service is launched, after which a year’s subscription will cost £59.99, equivalent to £4.99 a month. You can sign up here.

Unlike Netflix which lets users stream to two different devices simultaneously, Disney Plus will allow all subscribers to stream up to four devices at the same time and access 4K content at no extra cost.

But perhaps you should not get too comfortable with the fee, as Disney Chief Financial Officer Christine M. McCarthy has suggested Disney Plus pricing may rise as the service advances and called the $7-a-month fee an "initial" price.

What shows and movies are on Disney +?

An extensive list of Disney, Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars and National Geographic content will be available on Disney +.

A colossal 500 films, more than 350 series, and 26 exclusive Disney+ Originals that will be available on Disney+ at launch.

The Sound of Music, The Princess Bride and Malcolm in the Middle will join the service in the first year.

Disney’s animation classics such as The Lion King and Snow White will be on there, as will originals including The Mandalorian, which will launch on November 12, 2019, and a Stars Wars prequel series based on Rogue One.

Other shows include separate programmes for the main Avengers characters and a spin-off series of High School Musical, which is coming out this November, as well as a Lizzie McGuire reboot, with Hilary Duff.

The Simpsons has also been added to the bill,  as well as Avengers: Endgame, classic Disney series like Hannah Montana, and Oscar-winning documentaries such as Free Solo.

CEO Bob Iger has revealed that if you sign up to Disney+, you’ll have an endless supply content, saying “It’s going to combine both the old and the new", however it will be released in stages.
