Disney's new streaming service, Disney Plus, has finally launched in the Channel Islands today.
Film fans had been disappointed after the UK launch of the service last month blocked the Crown Dependencies from logging on.
Good idea. Bob - we are ‘Old’ Jersey not New Jersey, part of British Isles and can get Netflix UK, Amazon Prime UK, Britbox UK, BBC iPlayer, etc. but @DisneyPlusUK have forgotten to include our IP address range within UK so we can’t sign up.— Tony Moretta (@TonyMoretta) March 21, 2020
Islanders trying to access it got the message that the service 'is not available in your country.'
But after the company's Chairman, Bob Iger said he was personally looking into it, the service can now be used in Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man.
I am looking into this.— Robert Iger (@RobertIger) March 21, 2020
As well as exclusive Disney content, subscribers of the £5.99pm/£59.99pa packages will also have access to offerings from Marvel, Pixar, Fox, National Geographic and Star Wars.
