Disney+ to launch a week earlier than planned in the UK

The new streaming service Disney+ is to launch on 24 March in the UK, a week earlier than originally planned. The new launch date may be an attempt to tackle piracy of shows like The Mandalorian, suggested one expert. Disney has confirmed that the new service will replace DisneyLife in the UK and Ireland. The earlier streaming platform had been offered since 2015, and also offered access to Disney's library of cartoons and films, but excluded content including the Star Wars films, Marvel movies and National Geographic documentaries provided by its successor. In the US, Disney+ also includes the back catalogue to The Simpsons cartoon series, which Disney acquired when it bought 21st Century Fox last year.
