Disney+ is as cheap as Apple TV+ in the UK if you preorder today

Disney+ is as affordable as Apple TV+ for subscribers in the United Kingdom if they preorder the service ahead of its debut next month. An annual subscription is available today for just £49.99 — £10 off the usual price.

That’s exactly the same price you’ll pay for a year of Apple TV+, but of course, Disney is offering you a lot more content.

Even at full price, Disney+ is a pretty spectacular deal. It gets you access to thousands of classic Disney movies and TV shows, as well as brand-new exclusives. It also features Star Wars, Pixar, and Marvel content.

Disney+ finally makes its debut in Europe next month, and subscribers in the U.K. will be charged £5.99 ($7.77) a month (£1 more than Apple TV+) or £59.99 ($77.78) a year (£10 more than Apple TV+). But there is a way to get it cheaper.

Save £10 on Disney+ today

Disney is slashing £10 off an annual Disney+ subscription for those who preorder the service ahead of its launch on March 24. That means you’ll pay just £49.99 for a full 12 months of unlimited access.

There are no restrictions for those who claim the discounted rate. You can still stream on up to four devices simultaneously, and download movies and TV shows for offline viewing. There’s really no reason not to jump on this deal.

It should be noted that we’re not certain what the catalog of Disney+ content will look like in the U.K. Disney has promised over 1,000 movies, series, originals, and more — and we’re getting exclusives like The Mandalorian.

It’s unclear, however, if certain titles will be missing at launch due to other licensing deals. Nevertheless, we’re confident the service will be well worth its price tag for almost anyone.

Another blow to Apple TV+

The preorder discount is another blow to Apple TV+, which is already struggling to compete with its rivals when it comes to new content. New shows are now being added, but there was a period in which we saw nothing new.

Disney has already brought forward its Disney+ launch date for Europe so that it can start competing earlier. It’s unlikely, however, that it is too concerned about Apple’s service; fighting streaming king Netflix will be its top priority.
