Earlier today, Disney unveiled a “multi-year” distribution deal with Sky that would allow Sky subscribers to access the service via their existing set-top boxes. Sky will also launch Disney Plus on its streaming Now TV service in the coming months.
Customers will be able to watch new shows on Disney+ including The Mandalorian and High School Musical; The Musical, The Series; The World According to Jeff Goldblum and more. As part of the deal, Comcast-owned Sky will continue to hold first pay window rights to 20th Century titles, meaning its customers will be able to watch films including Ford v Ferrari and Terminator: Dark Fate.
“We’ve built a strong partnership with Disney over three decades and we’re pleased that our customers in the UK and Ireland can continue to enjoy their world-class content – all in one place on Sky Q,” says Jeremy Darroch, Sky CEO in a statement.
Sky isn’t revealing any special bundles for Disney+ access today, but the company is promising Disney’s streaming service will be available on Sky at launch on March 24th.
