Disney+ Moves Up March Launch Date for the UK and Europe


Disney+ will be coming to Europe this March, but it looks like it is coming a week earlier than originally planned.

According to Variety Disney has moved up the March 31st release date a week. This means that Disney+ will launch on March 24th instead.

This will include the United Kingdom, France, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Spain, Austria and Switzerland and a price of £5.99/€6.99 a month ($8 US equivalent) or £59.99/€69.99 for a year (about $78 us equivalent.)

Other Western Europe markets that include Belgium, the Nordics, and Portugal, will get Disney+ in summer 2020.

These markets are all important for the service to reach the estimated 60-90 million worldwide subscribers they estimate to have by 2024.

If you happen to be in those markets, that’s when you can expect a roll-out.
