Despite the lack of original content when compared to their competitors Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, Disney+ relies heavily on homegrown content from Pixar, Star Wars and 20th Century Fox movies that they own. Convincing buyers to buy yet another yearly subscription is no easy task but when Disney+ launches in Europe and the United Kingdom this March on 24th, things will heat up a lot.
Soon, Disney will remove many of your favorite content from Netflix as the agreement period ends and the only way to watch them all will be through Disney+ subscription. The service is not available globally because they are a relatively new player in the streaming segment. There is the Apple TV+ that is going head-on against these mammoths and only time will tell who will survive this streaming battle but it definitely is a tiring experience for the average consumer.
In an official announcement, it has been confirmed that Disney+ when launching in the UK will cost 6.99 GBP for monthly subscription and 69.99 GBP for an annual subscription. Select countries in the European continent will receive the streaming service including Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Austria and Switzerland. Belgium, Nordics and Portugal are also on the list to get the service later but at the end of the day it is all about the right pricing and what it offers for the annual subscription cost that you pay.
In terms of classic content, Disney+ is a solo player with amazing movies, cartoons and the mammoth Star Wars series all up their line. With new movies being added and over 500 movies already available, it is a great way to enjoy streaming on your big 4K TV if you have one or simply enjoy long TV shows on the go. By the end of 2020, we should have a clear idea on who dominates the TV wars with so many new players in town.
