Disney+, a new streaming service to rival Netflix and NowTV, has launched in the UK after its US launch in November last year. You can find the UK site here.

It will be a comprehensive streaming platform featuring all the TV shows and films produced by Disney since 1937, as well as new exclusive content.

The service will host five hubs dedicated to the major franchises: Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic.

A monthly subscription costs £5.99, or £59.99 to sign up for a year (currently there is a limited offer for £49.99 for a year).

In its first year, Disney+ will have more than 25 original TV series, alongside a library of more than 7,500 episodes of shows.

The service will feature five new shows set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, WandaVision, What If…?, Loki and Hawkeye.

Star Wars shows are also being developed for Disney+, including The Clone Wars, The Mandalorian and an untitled series revolving around Rogue One’s Cassian Andor.

All 30 seasons of The Simpsons will be available to watch from launch day, as well as all the series of Malcolm in the Middle.

Shows also in the works include spin-offs of High School Musical, Monsters, Inc, The Sandlot and Love, Simon.
