Disney+ launched tomorrow which means it’s your last chance to snap up the UK preorder deal.
Disney is running the pre-order offer which means you get the service for £4.17 a month for 12 months – that’s a year for £49.99 upfront. The deal only runs until tomorrow so you have one more day to take advantage of it.
Netflix charges £11.99 for 4K compared to Disney+‘s £4.17 to give you an idea of saving, too.
The £4.17 a month gets you more than 1,000 movies, TV shows and documentaries with The Mandalorian, Marvel movies, Pixar’s new Forky Asks A Question and The Imagineering Story, a documentary series from Leslie Iwerks, the granddaughter of the co-creator of Mickey Mouse.
You also get the back catalogue of Marvel, Disney, Star Wars, Pixar and Fox as well as National Geographic docs including Jeff Goldblum’s docuseries.
While Disney+ has said it will drop the bandwidth it uses upon launch in anticipation of demand – similar to Netflix agreeing to drop it by 25% – it looks like the new streaming platform has come at the right time.
