Wondering when you can start streaming Disney+? Find out the official launch date for UK subscribers

The World According to Jeff Goldblum

There are just a few hours left until Disney+ launches in the UK – Disney’s new streaming service set to replace Disney Life.


With many of us planning to consume more TV than usual in the coming months and with many kids spending more time at home, Disney+ couldn’t have come at a better time for busy households – Disney+ subscribers can stream to four devices at once.

Anticipating high demand, Disney+ has also followed suit after Netflix revealed it will be decreasing streaming quality to reduce pressure on internet providers. Disney+ has committed to temporarily reduce bandwidth usage by 25%.

What time does Disney+ launch in the UK?

Disney+ hasn’t announced an exact time but expect to have access early morning on Tuesday 24th March.

Based on the official site’s countdown timer, excited fans will be able to stream content in the early hours of the morning on Tuesday 24th March, the official launch date for the Disney+ streaming service.

Disney is offering an early sign-up deal until the service goes live. This means that if you sign before midnight on Monday 23rd March, you’ll save £10 on the annual subscription price – usually £59.99 a year.

Get Disney+ for £49.99 for a year.
