56 sec read

Few companies have as many beloved movies and television shows in their arsenal of original content as Disney, which is why the company has decided to release its own Netflix-like subscription streaming service. The service will be known as DisneyLife, and will be exclusive to the European market for the time being. Users will be able to stream tons of movies from Disney and Pixar, as well as television shows from the Disney Channel. Eventually, the service may come to include content from Marvel or Star Wars as well, and hopefully it’ll launch in North America sometime soon.

Disney will launch a digital subscription streaming service next month which will combine its movies, books, TV series, and music offerings into one bundle, according to a report today from The Financial Times. The service, called DisneyLife, will include TV shows from the Disney Channel, classic movies like Snow White, Lady and the Tramp and The Jungle Book, as well as content from the complete Pixar catalog, like Toy Story. The service, however, is aimed the European market, with a launch in the U.K. followed by expansions across Europe in 2016, to reach countries including France, Spain, Italy and Germany. At launch, Disney plans on charging £9.99 a month for access to the content, which will be made available in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. The service does not currently include content from other major Disney properties, like Star Wars or Marvel, Disney CEO Bob Iger told The FT, but he noted that DisneyLife could lay the groundwork for additional subscription services for those properties in the future.
