Walt Disney Company’s video streaming service Disney+ has been available in the United States for a little while now, but fans in Europe are still waiting for Disney’s classic shows and (mainly) Baby Yoda to make their way to Europe.
The wait is going to end sooner than expected, though. Disney+ was originally supposed to launch on the 31st of March in some European countries, including the United Kingdom, but that’s getting moved up.
Disney+ will now launch a week earlier than expected on the 24th of March. The service will be available for £5.99 a month, or €6.99 a month when it launches in the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria, and Switzerland.
Disney will also be offering annual subscription options for Disney+, priced at £59.99 or €69.99. The company plans to expand Disney+’s availability to other Western Europe markets, including Belgium, Portugal, and the Nordics sometime in Summer 2020 as well.
Disney+’s initial launch day in the United States led to the service struggling to deal with high demand, forcing Disney to disable some features to cope with the demand. It will be interesting to see if the demand for Disney+ is going to be just as high in the European markets, and whether Disney+ is now prepared to deal with such high demand or not.
