What's the difference between DisneyLife and Disney+?

Everything you need to know about the two streaming services from Disney

Published: Monday, 17th February 2020 at 2:39 pm

Featuring Star Wars titles, Marvel movies and shows, plus much much more, Disney+ is the newest streaming service on the block. However, big fans of the House of Mouse will note that Disney already have a streaming service: DisneyLife.


So, what exactly is the difference between the two services? Here’s all you need to know.

Is Disney Plus the same as DisneyLife?

No, the two are different services. UK experimental service DisneyLife, which launched in 2015, offers subscribers a large range of Disney films and shows (minus Star Wars, Marvel and Fox titles).

Disney+ launched on 24th March, bringing all new content and old favourites including Star Wars, Marvel and Fox TV shows and Disney films. Disney+ has replaced Disney Life.

Sign up to Disney+ for £59.99 for a full year’s subscription or £5.99 a month

While DisneyLife only produced one original series (Legend of the Three Caballeros), Disney+ promises a string of new titles, including Star Wars’ The Mandalorian and a selection of Marvel TV titles.

Disney told ahead of the launch that DisneyLife subscribers would be sent more information about switching to a Disney+ account. The service also did a Q&A on its UK Twitter account.

How do I sign up to Disney+?

You can sign up to Disney+ via its website. As stated in the tweet above, the service will have several different pricing plans. You can sign up to Disney+ for £59.99 to get a full year’s subscription.

UK users can download the Disney+ app on Android, Apple and Smart TV devices. Find out more about compatible Disney+ devices
