Disney Plus Streaming Service: Everything you need to know

For all those Disney lovers out there, your dreams are set to come true. Disney has announced the launch of their plus streaming service - the place where you can indulge in endless hours of all things Disney. We know you're probably itching with excitement, so we thought we'd answer a few key questions for you:

What is this service?

Disney has spoilt their fans with access to 25 original television series, 10 original films and documentaries. And if this wasn't enough, a library featuring 7,500 other television series and up to 500 films will be accessible at your fingertips.

This new release will compete with other streaming platforms like Netflix, Now TV, Amazon Prime and Apple TV Plus. Despite the lack of videos in comparison to their rivals, Disney hopes to lure people in with a variety of high-profile exclusive streaming and a generous library featuring rare content.

Disney+ will ultimately become the only place where you can find some of the most popular original series and films. It will make the platform a must-have for major Marvel, Star Wars and obviously Disney fans. So, if you love Captain Marvel or have children, be prepared to have yet another monthly subscription coming your way.

When and where is it launching?

Following the recent D23 Expo, Disney announced that it will be launching their new premier streaming service to the US, Canada and the Netherlands on 12 November. It'll then launch a week later, on 19 November, in Australia and New Zealand. 

Unfortunately, we are yet to know when this service will be making an appearance in the UK. According to Digital Spy, it is expected to be available in 'nearly all major regions of the world within the next two years' - sadly we must sit tight and wait for the big reveal from Disney. In the meantime, you can sign up at DisneyPlus.com to find out when the service is coming to the United Kingdom.  

How much will this cost?

The streaming platform will cost $6.99 a month for viewers in America - or you can sign up to the service annually for $69.99. This means when it does eventually launch in the UK, you can expect to pay around £5.99 a month and £57 a year approximately. 

Hopefully, it won't be too long until we can binge watch back to back Disney productions in the UK.
