Disney+ is coming to Sky Q and NOW TV

As expected, Disney+ will be available on Sky Q and NOW TV devices at launch on 24th March. This follows Netflix integration since the Comcast takeover of Sky last year.

Jeremy Darroch, chief executive of Sky, said: "We’ve built a strong partnership with Disney over three decades and we’re pleased that our customers in the UK and Ireland can continue to enjoy their world-class content – all in one place on Sky Q."

The Walt Disney Company and Sky have enjoyed a successful long-term relationship and this multi-year deal makes sense. However, it is not believed to be exclusive.

“We are delighted that Sky is selling the Disney+ service on their platform and, along with our other distribution partners, will deliver exceptional reach at launch,” said Kevin Mayer, chairman of Walt Disney Company’s direct-to-consumer and international business.

The deal between Disney and Sky will also see some of Disney’s first 20th Century Fox titles arrive on Sky Cinema, including Le Mans ‘66 and Terminator: Dark Fate, after the takeover last year.
