DisneyLife Streaming Service Launches in the U.K.

For almost a century, The Walt Disney Company has brought kids and families together through world-class storytelling and continued innovation. Now, with the launch of DisneyLife, a unique digital membership service making its debut in the U.K. today, the Company is allowing families to connect with Disney’s biggest collection of entertainment in one place, in a new way, both at home and on-the-go.

The easy-to-use DisneyLife app allows fans to explore Disney stories and characters through a rich and colorful interface unlike any other. For one monthly fee, families can stream instantly or temporarily download an ever-expanding digital library of hundreds of movies and books, as well as thousands of songs and TV episodes (through a U.K. Internet connection or prior UK download). Disney fans can enjoy the full Disney experience through the DisneyLife app on compatible Apple and Android devices and also watch via Airplay and Chromecast.

“Our team has worked tirelessly to create a personal, intuitive and unique experience for the whole family,” Paul Brown, general manager of DisneyLife UK, said. “Disney means something different to every parent and child and now with DisneyLife we are handing over the keys to them to explore the ever-expanding digital world of Disney—wherever they are and whenever they want.”

To meet consumers’ changing needs, DisneyLife allows for the creation of up to six profiles, allowing each family member to personalize their experience. Families can add as many as ten compatible devices and built-in parental controls let parents manage their kids’ screen time. The service includes unlimited streaming in the U.K.; there are no additional in-app purchase costs to subscribers, who can opt to watch movies, TV shows and read books in up to five different languages: English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

Today marks the first day that DisneyLife is available to subscribers in the U.K. on mobile, tablet and TV (via Airplay with Apple TV and Chromecast) for £9.99 a month. To learn more about this first-of-its-kind streaming service, visit DisneyLife.com.
