The Walking Dead moves to Star on Disney+

The Walt Disney Company continues to pivot towards Disney+ with the closure of the Fox channel after 17 years in the UK.

A Disney spokesperson said: “On 30th June the FOX channel in the UK will close. Many titles will become available on Star on Disney+ and will be announced in the near future. We appreciate the support of our UK fans and can’t wait to keep sharing the best stories with you.

The linear channel's shuttering is not entirely surprising as Disney+ continues to grow its subscription base buoyed by Star Wars and Marvel Studios' spin-offs during the pandemic. The Walking Dead will be joining War of the Worlds and more.

“Star on Disney+ serves as the home of movies and television from Disney’s creative studios, including Disney Television Studios (20th Television and ABC Signature), FX Productions and 20th Century Studios.”

The Walking Dead’s final season will be shown exclusively on Star on Disney+ this August. With the loss of the Fox channel in the UK, NOW (formerly NOW TV) looks less and less appealing as NCIS will very likely move to Star, too.

Will you be subscribing to Disney+ to watch the final season of The Walking Dead? Let me know in the comments below.
