If you sign up to Disney Plus UK before the end of today, you’ll pay £49.99 for a 12-month subscription, rather than the standard price of £59.99 − a tasty £10 discount. The firm launched the offer in February, and it won’t be around tomorrow.
Disney Plus is due to go live in the UK on Tuesday, March 24 − that’s tomorrow. If you wait to sign up then, you’ll have to pay either £5.99 per month (which adds up to £71.88 over the course of a year) or £59.99 for 12 months (which is the equivalent of £4.99 every month).
But if you sign up today, you can get 12 months of Disney Plus access for £49.99, which works out at £4.17 each month. You can take advantage of the Disney Plus discount here:
By opting for an annual membership, you can save 15% as opposed to paying the monthly rate for Disney Plus. For classics like The Simpsons and Recess, alongside modern staples like Frozen 2 and The Mandalorian, it's an absolute bargain.
As the company says, that’s an “over 16% discount compared with our standard annual price of £59.99/year and over 30% discount compared with our standard monthly price of £5.99/month”.
Disney Plus’ pricing was already very competitive, and this discount will likely have got some Netflix execs hot under the collar.
Netflix raised some of its prices last year, with the HD Standard plan going up to £8.99 per month (from £7.99, representing a 12.5% increase), and the 4K Premium plan going up to £11.99 per month (from £9.99, representing a whopping 20% increase). The price of its SD Basic plan stayed the same, at £5.99.
A single Disney Plus account, by the way, will allow you to create up to seven profiles for your friends or members of your family, and let you stream up to four different shows or films on four different devices at any one time.
In that regard, it’s similar to Netflix’s top-tier £11.99 per month package, but far more affordable. There’s also more than 100 4K titles on the platform.
As mentioned above, Disney Plus will officially go live in the UK on March 24. However, if you sign up to it now, chances are you’ll be able to access Disney Plus and all of its content − including, of course, The Mandalorian − a little bit early with the aid of a VPN.
