If you’re looking to get Sky, then check out the deals with Sky Q. Sky Q has just had a big update with voice discovery, HDR and an expanded UI view too. The change means you’ll see more TV, film, video, podcast, music and games recommendations rather than hunting for them. You also get a Show Centre now  – where all seasons, episodes, recordings, broadcast schedules and on-demand links are. The main change for Disney+ is it’s now HDR rather than just HD!

How much is Disney Plus on Sky?

Sky said Disney Plus will cost the same with Sky as it does without, so £5.99 a month. The subscription basically works the same as Netflix does, bundled with Sky. (Just remember Sky is increasing TV and broadband prices this April.)

Disney Plus isn’t an app on Sky Q that you open up, it works the same as Netflix.
