At the request of the French government given the current risk of broadband networks congestion caused by the health crisis, Disney has agreed to postpone the launch of its all-new Disney+ streaming service in France initially scheduled for March 24 until April 7.
Disney+ will be available from its launch, from April 7, in CANAL+ offers. CANAL+ will offer this new streaming service to its subscribers and will further extend the reach of Disney+ through third party distribution partners such as ISPs.
Moreover, CANAL+ will include Disney+ in a wide range of offers for its new subscribers.
- To accompany the addition of Disney+ to its offers, CANAL+ will launch a CANAL+ & Disney+ limited edition two-year subscription for just €19.90/month, until June 3, 2020;
- The pack FAMILLE+ will include all Disney’s content, with Disney+ as well as exclusive access to Disney Junior and Disney Channel. In this way, CANAL+ reinforces its promise of unique family time with over 60 cinema, series, youth and documentary channels (launch price of €10/month, instead of €15/month);
- The pack CINE SERIES+, which added Netflix in October 2019 to OCS, CINE+ and other movie and series channels, will also include Disney+, creating the ultimate offer for cinema and series fans (launch price of €15/month, instead of €30/month);
- Disney+ will also be bundled with the pack +DE CANAL+ (launch price of €5/month, instead of €15/month) and the Intégrale+ package which includes all CANAL+ content and services (€89.90/month for 2 years, instead of €99.90/month)
- Finally, as announced a few weeks ago, Disney+ will be offered at no extra cost to CANAL+ subscribers with commitment to the Intégrale, Intégrale+ offers and pack Ciné Séries. The service will also be included for the first year in two other packages with commitment, pack Famille and pack Canal+.
The agreement with Disney France fits with CANAL+ Group’s ambition to create a gateway to the world’s top apps and channels, from a base comprising the best cinema, sport and series content.
