Sky and Disney strike new multi-year deal for Disney+ in Ireland and UK
04 Mar 2020 : Nathan Griffin
Disney+ launches in Ireland on March 24th.
Sky and Disney has announced a new non-exclusive multi-year deal, making Disney+ available for purchase in the UK and Ireland on Sky Q.

The new SVoD service aims to offer fans of all ages a new way to experience the unparalleled content from the company’s iconic entertainment brands, including Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic, as well as exclusive original programming including feature-length films, series, documentaries, and short-form content made exclusively for the service.

The deal means that Sky consumers will be able to watch great Disney+ Original series such as Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian; The World According To Jeff Goldblum, which explores the wonderful and often astonishing world of deceptively familiar objects; and all-new episodes of the critically-acclaimed series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

New feature films exclusive to Disney+ include Togo, an exhilarating true story starring four-time Oscar-nominee Willem Dafoe; Stargirl, an offbeat coming-of-age story based on the critically-acclaimed, New York Times best-selling novel; and Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made, following the hilarious exploits of Timmy and a 1,500-pound polar bear.

Three new live-action series’ from Marvel Studios will also premiere on Disney+ beginning with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan. Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany return as the Scarlet Witch and Vision in the upcoming series WandaVision, and Tom Hiddleston is set to reprise his role as popular villain Loki. Three further series are in development including Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, and She-Hulk.

Disney+ will be made available to NOW TV customers in the coming months.

As the deal includes the first-pay window for 20th Century titles, Sky Cinema customers will continue to enjoy access to the latest blockbusters, such as, Le Mans ’66 and Terminator: Dark Fate.

“We’ve built a strong partnership with Disney over three decades and we’re pleased that our customers in the UK and Ireland can continue to enjoy their world-class content – all in one place on Sky Q, said Jeremy Darroch, Group Chief Executive of Sky, when speaking about the newly stuck deal. “This is a great start to what is set to be another stellar year for Sky – in 2020 we’ll launch new channels and genres, start building Sky Studios Elstree and we’ve got brilliant new and returning originals coming too.”

Kevin Mayer, Chairman of Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer & International, added: “We are delighted that Sky is selling the Disney+ service on their platform and, along with our other distribution partners, will deliver exceptional reach at launch.”

Disney is currently offering the SVoD at an introductory rate of €59.99 for a 12-month subscription, which works out at €5 a month. Its standard €69.99 charge (€6.99 per-month) will be introduced post-launch.

The new SVoD service will launch on March 24th, 2020 and full details and information on how to subscribe are available on Disneyplus.com.
