We’re hours from the launch of Disney Plus in the UK, but we’d hate for the floodgates to open only for you to find your streaming device isn’t yet supporting the platform.
So we’re very happy to confirm that Amazon Fire TV devices will have a Disney Plus app ready to go on March 24, in time for you to begin blitzing through The Mandalorian and season 7 of The Clone Wars.
If you have a Fire TV box, Fire TV Edition, Fire Tablet, or Fire TV Stick, you’ll be able to access that large library of Disney, Pixel, Marvel and Star Wars content from the get go.
Better still, the app is fully supportive of Alexa voice commands, meaning you’ll be able to access the content without lifting a finger. This is excellent news for all concerned.
In a statement, Amazon said: “We’re excited to announce that Disney+, the new streaming service from the Walt Disney Company, will be available on Amazon devices in the UK including Fire TV streaming devices, Fire TV Edition smart TVs, and compatible Fire Tablets on March 24th.”
Of course, this news is no real surprise to anyone given Amazon supported Disney Plus in the United States from its launch last November. However, it’s still really good to hear that Amazon UK is on the ball here.
If you sign up for Disney Plus now, you’ll save a tenner on an annual subscription, with the company offering it for £49.99 instead of the full price of £59.99. But you’ll have to move quickly because the offer ends before March 24.
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.
If you’re desperate to meet Baby Yoda, you might want to sign up early and try your luck with a VPN.
