To celebrate the upcoming launch of Disney+ in the UK on March 24, Disney is knocking £10 off the cost of an annual subscription for all customers who register for an account before 11:59 PM GMT on March 23. This sees it on sale for just £50, down from the usual £60. Take it from us: Offers like this are few and far between, so best take advantage of this one while you can.
Not sure if it’s worth it? We’ve been using Disney+ since it launched in the U.S. back in November and we’re still obsessed with the catalog. In a word, it’s flawless. Where else can you find every episode of The Simpsons aired to date, shelved alongside all the best-loved movies in Walt’s collection — new and old — like Big Hero 6, Guardians of the Galaxy, Iron Man, and Toy Story.
As if that wasn’t enough, Disney created a Star Wars show exclusively for Disney+. It’s called The Mandalorian, it stars a Baby Yoda, and the cast have already started filming a second season. Two other live-action Star Wars shows are also said to be in development, as well as a Home Alone remake. There are rumored to be several other exclusive shows in the works, too.
Walt has struck a deal with Sky to integrate Disney+ UK on Sky Q boxes at launch, eliminating the need for a streaming stick. It will join Netflix, which was added back in April 2019. Not a Sky Q customer? Disney+ UK will also be available on Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV,
But what if it’s a question of Disney+ UK or Netflix? Well, if you’re a huge Disney or The Simpsons fan, or have children, we’d have to side with Disney+. Nothing compares with the endless hours of lighthearted content it has to offer. Even if you can’t afford to hand over £50 in one go, we’d still recommend taking out a monthly subscription at £5.99 per month.
You won’t be disappointed.
