Disney Plus is sweetening the deal for UK subscribers
After launching at the tail end of last year in the US, the Disney Plus streaming service is due to roll out on UK shores from 24 March.
As a sweetener, Disney offers a reduced price for new customers, bringing the cost down to £49.99 for a year’s subscription.
That’s a £10 cut from the standard annual cost, which probably isn’t going to change anyone’s world but might be a tempting reduction if you’re already considering jumping into Disney’s homegrown rival to Netflix.
The offer is valid until 23 March, the day before the service launches, so you have just under a month to decide.
After this, the standard pricing will resume, at either £59.99 a year or £5.99 a month.
Disney Plus is where the House of Mouse hosts films and TV shows from its various properties, namely Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars, as well as the company’s backlog of classic Disney movies.
This includes the likes of Avengers and the recent Star Wars films, as well as exclusive programs.
Including The Mandalorian; or ‘The show with Baby Yoda in it’, as anyone who has been near the internet over the past few months will be even dimly aware of.
The Disney Plus package also comes with National Geographic programming, and a further slate of upcoming ‘original’ shows, in the Netflix use of the word, including a series centred on Tom Hiddleston’s Loki character from the Avengers films.
You can find the Disney Plus deal by pre-ordering on the company’s site.
