If you have subscribed to Disney + to watch new original series, there are 4 series to discover.

Just as expected, the Disney+ direct-to-consumer streaming service has made a huge impact already in the first few days of launch since 24 March in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria, and Switzerland. Also, App Annie's data covers only mobile apps, not connected-TV apps or access to the Disney Plus website (and therefore may exclude a portion of the user base).

Kevin Mayer, the Disney exec accountable of Disney Plus, has actually claimed Disney+ can potentially bring them back to life, yet records recommend their initial offer can limit Disney from servicing one till time this year.


The Disney Plus app is free to download from the Microsoft Store, although you will need to be paying a subscription to the service in order to watch its content.

Select the Disney Plus tile that subsequently appears and then select Get. Alongside The Simpsons and Mandalorian, there's also every Disney movie you can think of rubbing shoulders with Pixar films such as Toy Story, Marvel flicks from the MCU (including every instalment of the Avengers), X-Men, all of Star Wars, detailed looks at the Disney parks, a series from Jeff Goldblum, and more than we've got room for here.

The Disney + program is formidable with hundreds of films and series. The analyst added that it believed that the service was set to be one of the top streaming apps in the region.


How much film supplies will be available in the coming months is not yet known.

Newer smart TVs from LG, Sony, Philips and Samsung are also compatible with Disney Plus. The idea is to give Disney a big arm in the streaming game, which is largely seen as the future of The Entertainment Business.

If you decide to go for it, here are all the current Disney Plus UK offers.


There are a number of different streaming stick models to consider. They're the ideal way to keep yourself amused when you're not watching Disney Plus. Most streaming services, similarly, have seen a spike, with the exception of Apple TV +, which follows the rest of the pack.
