Disney+ Pre-Launch Promotion Offering Discounted Prices for Europe

by

Disney+ is coming to Europe in just under a month, and Disney is offering prospective customers a discount subscription offer if they sign up early to the streaming video service.


Residents in the United Kingdom can get a year of Disney+ for £49.99 instead of the standard £59.99 annual subscription rate if they sign up between now and March 23. Elsewhere, in other European markets users can purchase an annual sub for €59.99 instead of €69.99 euros before the official launch date.

Sign-ups to the discounted subscription rate can be completed online at https://preorder.disneyplus.com.

On March 24, over 500 feature films and over 7,500 shows will be available on the service including new original content like the critically acclaimed "The Mandalorian" and "The World According To Jeff Goldblum," along with timeless classics like "Lady and the Tramp" and the entire Pixar library.

Monthly pricing remains at £5.99 for the U.K. and €6.99 for other European markets. Disney+ will be available on Amazon Fire devices, LG and Samsung smart TVs, Roku's streaming devices, Apple TV, iOS, Android, Xbox One, and PS4 at launch.

Looking forward to this. Anyone of our USA based friends share their thoughts on the service that already has it? Is it worth it?

UK user here; I had US Disney+ running on my Apple TV 4K for a couple of months using smartDNS, before my ISP issued a new router that employs DNS hijacking and broke the service for me.

That I took advantage of the £49.99 UK offer yesterday with indecent haste should say it all. The service worked brilliantly, with the MCU, Star Wars and late 80s/early 90s Disney Classics all in Dolby Vision & Dolby Atmos (I can make use of both). The exclusives - The Mandalorian, Forky Asks a Question & the Imagineers documentary series were all fantastic and well worth watching. Navigation is very similar to the existing UK DisneyLife service, with a watchlist that one can add films, series and shorts to. The US service had The Simpsons (cropped to fit a 16:9 TV) & assorted animated Marvel series, notably the 90s animated X Men. The Simpsons will NOT be on the UK service (do Sky have the rights in perpetuity?) and not sure about X Men (animated & live action).

Didn’t get chance to make use of the download service on phones/iPads before we lost the service. Looking forward on this for watching offline during car journeys, flights to Disney World in May etc.

Is the service worth it? As a die hard Disney/MCU/Star Wars geeks, the service is unbelievable value for money to me and my family, especially as we can make full use of Dolby Vision/HDR10/Dolby Atmos.


Can’t wait to see the marvel movies in 4k

Got as far as watching Thor 1 in a family MCU-a-thon from the beginning when we had the US service for a couple of months courtesy of smartDNS. The MCU films in 4K HDR10/Dolby Vision & Dolby Atmos did not disappoint. Looking forward on picking the series back up with Cap A 1st Avenger in Marchj

Wish we could purchase 4K marvel movies in iTunes, but Disney is still being greedy. But Disney + will do for 4K

Disappointing that the Disney+ app doesn’t seem to be available in the uk yet.
(Edit I thought the preview instead of a Pre-order)

use a proxy server/dns redirection to make you appear in the USA, sign up for a USA iTunes account, download the app, presto. to use the service in the UK ahead of launch you need a vpn/smart DNS service, but it does work.

Is it possible to share one account with friends/family? Similar to Netflix?

Absolutely!
5 profiles total can be created; all can stream at the same time.
I sent the passcode to a friend on the other side of the country that shares his HBO with me, & to my son off at college- about an hour and a half away.
Have had since day 1, not a single issue.

Thanks for that. I’ve also signed up for the early bird deal. Am a big fan of Star Wars/MCU too so can’t wait to watch in 4K. I’ve already watched the Mandalorian which I thought was fantastic so will be looking forward watching again in the higher resolution. Can’t wait. Kids will love all of the content too.
