Disney Plus UK will have over 600 episodes of The Simpsons to stream, Disney confirmed on Twitter ahead of launch on March 24. This ends a lot of worrying and speculation by fans – and it’s terrific news for UK customers, who can stream the animated sitcom on-demand for the first time ever. This news came shortly after Sky and Disney announced a multi-year partnership to launch the service on Sky Q.
If the presence of The Simpsons makes the service a must-buy for you, you can still get a year’s subscription to Disney Plus for £10 off before launch. That’s 12 months of streaming content from Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, Disney and The Simpsons for £49.99 instead of £59.99.
Disney Plus annual subscription: £
Until launch, save £10 on a year of Disney Plus. This offer expires on March 23, and it gives you 12 months to stream old and new Disney content to your heart’s content (now including The Simpsons). Disney Plus discounts don’t tend to be that frequent, so if you want it, now is a good time to order. View Deal

Why subscribe to Disney Plus UK before it’s even released, The Simpsons aside? Along with whatever Disney archive content comes to the service, you’re getting a year of big-budget exclusives. Your first 12 months will include seasons 1 and 2 of The Mandalorian and future Marvel shows like WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
It won’t just be Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar and Disney stuff to look forward to, though – Disney Plus revealed in marketing materials that Fox movies like X-Men: Days of Future Past and Ice Age are coming to the UK version of the streaming service.
