One of the peculiar things about the launch of the Disney+ streaming service, was the staggered launch dates around the world, in particular, important Star Wars communities such as the U.K. The company offered a bit of respite today announcing that they've moved the launch date ahead in not only the U.K., but other Western European countries as well.
Here's part of the press release...
The Walt Disney Company’s Direct-to-Consumer & International segment has set March 24th as the new launch date for Disney+ in markets across Western Europe. Pricing has also been confirmed at £5.99/€6.99 per month, or £59.99/€69.99 for an annual subscription.
The streaming service will launch in the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria, and Switzerland on March 24th. Additional Western Europe markets, including Belgium, the Nordics, and Portugal, will follow in summer 2020.
At launch, subscribers will have access to the critically acclaimed “The Mandalorian,” from executive producer and writer Jon Favreau.
