Disney+

Anyone know when Disney Plus is being released to Ireland and so we know the price?

Q1 2020, apparently and no word on the cost.

If you’re mainly interested in the Disney rather than the Plus, DisneyLife is available now with a good chunk of the same stuff and costs €6.99pm.

That's a big delay. What other shows will people end up pirating that will be released on the US in between now and then?

I don't see the point in delaying the release for that length of time. Anyone who wants to watch one of their high profile shows will just pirate it well before then - The Mandalorian being an obvious example.

Maybe all they'd have would be the new original content, since it seems they still have contracts with Sky for some of their content

Better to launch a product with a proper lineup, than to ask people to pay when it would be fairly blank

That may be the last people who have yearly subscriptions to Disney life. The similar, but inferior, streaming service they already operated this side of the Atlantic

That was never operational in the US so no need to wait

It is less to do with the Mandarolian and other Star Wars and Marvel original content. That’s the “Plus” in Disney+.

No, this is more to do with the real prize on offer to subscribers, and the one they can’t offer until that Sky deal expires - access to the library of Walt Disney Pictures animated classics. There will be a legion of kids out there pestering their parents to subscribe to get access to all of those classic animated films, and quite a few adults wanting to relive their childhoods too.

The Star Wars and Marvel properties are a great bonus, a Plus if you will. But this service is called Disney+, not Star Wars+ or Marvel+, and that’s not for nothing.

I can’t get it to work with my card. It seems they’re checking payment location rather than IP address location

mod: a quiet reminder that discussion on how to get around geo-blocking is against the charter. So please don't.

  • Please do not discuss how to capture / download streaming content from any streaming video site. This includes YouTube, RTE Player, Google Video, Metacafe, Hulu etc
  • While we're on the subject, discussing how to bypass geographical limitations to watch streaming content is also a no-no (i.e. how to watch Hulu outside the US)
