Disney+ Coming to Europe a Week Earlier than Expected


Those who had been waiting for Disney+ will be pleased to learn that it will arrive a week earlier than expected in Western Europe and the UK. In fact, it will be available to purchase on the 24th of March, which is hardly a couple of months away. The subscription service will cost between £5.99/€6.99 a month. If one chooses to purchase an annual membership, one will still have to cough out £59.99/€69.99.

What does the Disney+ come with?

To start with, Disney+ will roll out in Austria, Spain, Italy, Germany, France, and the UK, alongside a few other smaller countries. Disney+ comes with a number of games such as Star Wars TV show The Mandalorian, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, Lady and the Tramp, and The World According to Jeff Goldblum. Though Disney+ costs almost the same as Netflix in the UK, one must remember that subscription fatigue has started to sink in.

Subscription fatigue has finally set in

Many people have begun to avoid subscriptions in order to focus on services they truly love. Of course, Disney+ has very little to worry, as children seem to be growing in number at a faster pace than one could have imagined. Disney Plus has long been awaited by parents and their children, and its arrival will definitely cheer up a lot of people. However, many may not be able to shell out the extra cost of subscription fees, unless they are only into children-ready programs.

Disney+ also has other competitors such as Netflix and Amazon Prime, both of which have a better library. Consequently, it is primarily targeted at younger audiences, and the library reflects the target audience’s tastes and preferences. Those who are interested in a more democratic list can choose either Netflix or Amazon Prime. When Disney+ does arrive, viewers can expect to be regaled by a host of programs that are both exclusive and premium.

What is the future of the company?

The company is in discussions with a number of content creators at the moment. It is trying to rope in exclusive and premium content creators for its platform. Disney programs are already incredibly popular among children and adolescents. Western Europe and the UK have a huge fan base for Disney characters and this is probably why it is arriving slightly earlier there.
