The Mouse House is offering a year’s subscription to Disney+ for £49.99 (US$64.51), which is equivalent to £4.17 per month.

This undercuts the likes of Netflix, which costs £5.99 per month in the UK for a basic subscription, rising to £7.99 and £9.99 for standard and premium subscriptions, respectively.

The offer is only available until March 23, 2020, the day before the service launches in the UK, after which it will cost £59.99 for an annual subscription. Disney+ is also offering a standard subscription for £5.99 per month.

The service features Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic content and is currently available in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the Netherlands and Puerto Rico.

It will launch in Ireland, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Italy, France and India by the end of March, while Belgium, Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Norway, Portugal and Sweden are all set to receive it this summer.

Disney recently recruited BBC Studios scripted chief Liam Keelan for a new role overseeing content for its linear channels and new streaming service across Europe and Africa.

Meanwhile, the launch of Disney+ in Australia and New Zealand has resulted in the closure of the Mouse House’s linear channels Disney Channel and Disney Junior in the coming months.

Disney+’s original and exclusive content includes Star Wars series The Mandalorian and The Clone Wars, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series and The World According To Jeff Goldblum, plus feature films Togo, Stargirl and Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made.
