Although the timing is great for people around the globe that are under stay-at-home or quarantine orders, Disney+ is  moving forward as scheduled with global launch in several countries including the UK, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria and Switzerland. Disney+ will launch in France on April 7.

Coronavirus Response

In light of concerns regarding the current ability of certain broadband infrastructure to handle the anticipated consumer demand for Disney+, the service will now feature a lower overall bandwidth utilization by at least 25 percent.


Pricing for Disney+ has been confirmed at £5.99/€6.99 per month, or £59.99/€69.99 for an annual subscription. Following its initial European launch markets, additional Western Europe markets, including Belgium, the Nordics and Portugal, will follow in summer 2020.

Strategic Agreements

Through a comprehensive distribution plan and several strategic agreements, Disney+ is also available across multiple premier distributors in Europe with regional deals including:

  • Deutsche Telekom in Germany
  • O2 in the UK
  • Telefonica in Spain
  • TIM in Italy
  • Canal+ in France, beginning April 7

These providers will have the ability to include Disney+ in wholesale and retail packages for their subscribers. Specifics of those offers vary per company.

Disney also has a retail distribution deal with Sky, making Disney+ available in the UK and Ireland on Sky Q, to be followed by NOW TV in the coming months.
