Disney is launching a UK streaming service that will combine its animated and live action movies, books, television series and music into a single offering. Disneylife, which will be priced at just under $15 a month, will offer Disney Channel episodes as well as content across books, albums and movies, including the complete Pixar catalogue as well as classic Disney titles such as Snow White and Cinderella.
It is a bold move by Disney, the world’s largest media company by value, to connect directly with its audience. The service could be expanded internationally to France, Spain, Italy and Germany. There are no plans to launch Disneylife in the U.S. for now due to the number of overlapping existing deals with other cable and subscription services.
Disneylife will not include titles produced under the Marvel or Lucasfilm banners.
The news was first reported in the Financial Times.
