Sky, Disney+ deal on the brink
January 27, 2020
Sky is reportedly close to announcing a deal that will make the Disney+ SVoD service available via its pay-TV platform.
Disney and Sky are finalising a multi-year deal that could shut out Sky rivals such as Virgin Media and BT – who will still be able to carry the Disney+ app, but unable to offer Disney+ content fully integrated with other programming – according to a report in The Sunday Telegraph.
A deal would enable Sky Q customers to take up Disney+ as part of their subscription, much like the deal Sky currently has in place with Netflix.
Disney+ rolls out in the UK, and much of the rest of EMEA, on March 24th.
