What you need to know

  • Disney+ is now available in UK, Germany, Italy, Ireland & more.
  • Launch in France is delayed until April 7 at government request.
  • You can sign up and start streaming today.
  • Disney also announced that Belgium, the Nordics, and Portugal are slated to get Disney+ in the summer.

After waiting for what feels like forever, Disney has finally rolled out its Disney Plus (Disney+) streaming service across the EMEA to countries including the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain, and Switzerland. Unfortunately, at the request of local government, Disney had to put a pause on the roll out of the service to France until Tuesday, April 7. A launch is also on the horizon for another batch of European countries like Belgium, the Nordics, and Portugal; they should get Disney+ this summer if all goes well.

Disney+ has been available in the U.S., Canada, and the Netherlands since back in November 2019, and since then Disney has been a bit slow to roll the service out to more countries. Given that COVID-19 has trapped many of us in our homes, having another streaming platform that's available to keep everyone occupied is a great thing.

Disney Plus EMEA Pricing

Disney+ offers customers the option to pay for the service month by month or subscribe for a whole year. With the monthly option, you get a free one-week trial of the service to check out all the great content and make sure it's right for you. For those who already know they want to subscribe, and have some extra cash up front to spend, the annual membership helps save you a bit of money compared to paying monthly each time.

Disney Plus EMEA Launch Content

Unfortunately, not all titles from the Disney library will be available in all regions at launch. Some options, like Frozen 2 and others will come to the service later. Popular movies like Frozen, Moana, Toy Story, Black Panther, and others will be available from day one, and TV shows like The Simpsons will air all the seasons right from the start.
