The streaming service will be available in the UK from 31st March…
Disney has been recruiting people to run its new streaming service, Disney+, here in the UK since September, but the company has confirmed that UK viewers won’t get access to it until 31st March, 2020. If you’re already subscribed to DisneyLife, you should be aware that plans are afoot to shutter this subscription channel on Amazon Prime Video, and replace it with Disney+ from March.
Disney+ is about to go live in the US and in other territories on 12th November, boasting over 300 films and TV shows from the likes of Fox, Lucasfilm, Pixar and Marvel. Pricey Star Wars series The Mandalorian will also debut upon launch, and MCU spinoff shows focusing on the Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Scarlet Witch and Loki are all in the works, with the first project ahead of the pack in terms of its production status.
