Disney Plus UK is starting early - with a new March 24 release date that will see the Disney streaming service finally arrive on UK shores as well as the rest of Europe.
After those agonizing months of waiting, since Disney Plus first launched in the Netherlands, US, Canada and Australia last November, the schedule to change relief if the child is single – as the platform was due to hit the UK just a week later on March 31st. However, it's another week, we won't be without baby iodine, and is that something true? They grow up so fast!

It's not just the UK winning, either. Disney confirmed that the change date is also in Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria, Switzerland.
This is also the first time the UK pricing policy has been confirmed, with a monthly fee of £5.99 or an annual rate of £59.99 (roughly equivalent to US $6.99 monthly and $69.99 annually).
That's about what we expected, which means we're still getting Disney Plus subscriptions for less than the cheapest Netflix plan.
In a world of delay, thank you Disney
These have been a tough few weeks for those of us in show business.
Several AAA video games have seen their launches delayed by several months, with Cyberpunk 2077 getting delayed in September - along with Marvel's Avengers - while Dying Light 2 and Final Fantasy VII remake also pushed back their release dates. The Last of Us Part 2 was supposed to arrive in February, too - so soon - but has already been pushed back to May 2020.
Providing an entertainment product not only on time, but ahead of schedule? Unheard of. But it's some good news worth celebrating.
