Disney has just announced that their new video streaming service, Disney+, which launched in November in the US, Canada and a handful of other countries, is now arriving a week earlier than expected in Ireland. It’s original release date, along with the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria, and Switzerland was March 31st but now all of these countries  have been pulled forward to March 24th. 

Disney+ has already been immensely successful in its original launch territories and fan favourite shows such as The Mandalorian has only help cement its early popularity. 

Thanks to parent-company Disney’s desire to snap up all the popular IP and production houses in the world, the streaming service will also give you access to content from Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars and National Geographic. 

A monthly subscription to Disney+ will set you back €6.99 or you can sign up to an annual subscription for €69. 

Other platform exclusive content includes the ‘straight to streaming service’ release of the new CGI version of Lady and the Tramp along with ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. 

When the service launches, you should be able to access it on pretty much every connected device in your life along with apps for Apple TV, Xbox, PlayStation and whatever else you stream your current video subscriptions on.

You’ll also be able to download to your heart’s content on up to 10 devices, have 4 streams going at once and, if you’r TV is up to it, stream in 4K HDR.
