Disney+ customers are being warned to ‘act now’ to opt out of £36 price hike before the start of next month.
The streaming service, which is home to a range of favourite films and TV shows including Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic, is increasing its subscription price for all monthly customers from Wednesday, November 1. Prices will go up from £7.99 to £10.99 a month.
From exclusive original content to classic stories, Disney+ gives customers access to thousands of titles for an ad-free viewing experience. However in less than two weeks, access to all this great content could see pay-monthly customers paying an extra £36 a year for the same benefits.

That is because existing members will be automatically upgraded to the platform’s new Premium plan unless they change their subscription. To beat the price hike, users of the streaming service can lock-in the current Disney+ prices when they sign-up for an annual plan.
Costing £79.90 up front, the 12-month plan works out £15.98 cheaper than paying on a monthly rolling basis. Once the rises kick in you’ll save £3 a month, or £36 across the full plan, as you’re not having to fork out the newer £10.99 price.
This means that, for new subscribers, October is the last chance to sign up and benefit from the current pricing before the increase on November 1. Subscribing to an annual membership to Disney+ by October 31 gives new members 12 months access for less than the cost of eight months on the new Premium plan.
It will still come with the same great benefits, including 4K UHD, the ability to stream concurrently on four devices, and download functionality. When the plan changes kick in, viewers who opt out of the new Premium plan will see their picture quality capped at 1080p HD and lose concurrent streaming on two devices.
Disney+ is also introducing a cheaper plan at £4.99 a month for those that don’t mind their viewing interrupted by adverts. Those looking for ideas for an early Christmas present this year can buy an annual subscription as a gift and receive two months free compared to 12 months of the monthly subscription price.
