Disney Plus to Debut in Europe a Week ahead of Schedule
Disney will make its streaming service available in Europe before its anticipated timeline. It’s already had a trial run in the Netherlands, then launched across the United States on November 12th of last year.
Within 24 hours of its release in the US, Disney+ amassed more than 10 million subscriptions and experienced 3.2 million mobile app downloads. Since that time, the new entertainment portal has claimed more than 30 million app downloads and has millions more subscribers.
The service launched amidst much fanfare, but did experience technical issues in its initial roll out in the US. Some streamers were unable to access the service altogether, while others reported problems with viewing content. The issues were quickly resolved and the service has largely proven a huge success in its three-month infancy.
Disney Plus will cost £5.99 or €6.99 per month, or £59.99/€69.99 for the year.
