Sky and Disney have delighted fans by announcing the hotly-anticipated Disney+ platform will feature on the 'Q' box when the streaming service launches in the UK.

Since going live in the US in November 2019 the platform has been immensely popular, racking up more than ten million people subscribing on its first day. 

The system will go live in the UK three weeks today and SkyQ customers will be able to add it to their subscription.

Details are scarce on exactly how deeply the Disney streaming site will be integrated with SkyQ and how the monthly subscription fee will be paid at this point.

Disney has remained tight-lipped over its roll-out, with fans speculating as to exactly what content will be available. 

Exclusive shows such as The Mandalorian, The World According To Jeff Goldblum, and High School Musical will feature, but details are murkier for other hits.

For example, there is huge speculation as to whether the entire catalogue of The Simpsons will be available. 

It is believed Disney+ will be available on SkyQ at launch, and integration with the Sky-owned Now TV will come at a later date. 

Disney+ will cost £5.99 a month, but an introductory offer for customers who sign up before it launches lowers this to £49.99 a year, equivalent to £4.17 a month.
