In addition, they will have access to Disney Channel, Disney XD and Disney Junior TV channels through Sky?s subscription packages in both standard and high definition.

 

As per the new agreement, customers will get more Disney Channels series through Catch Up TV and On Demand than now available, at no extra cost. Also included in this agreement are ABC Studios primetime drama and comedy series such as ScandalGrey?s Anatomy andScrubs, available via ABC Studios on demand, through Sky Box Sets.

 

Moreover, Sky Movies customers will be able to choose from a wide selection of classic Disney movies on demand in Sky?s library of more than 1,000 films including FrozenEnchantedMaleficent, the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, as well as Disney Pixar hits such as Up,Monsters, Inc. and Toy Story

All new movie titles and a large selection of classic movie titles will also be available to buy and keep, or rent, via Sky Store.

 

Sky MD content Gary Davey said, ?Sky and Disney have been working together for almost 25 years. Our collaboration has continued to grow and the launch of the exclusive Sky Movies Disney channel two years ago has been a huge success. This new agreement means our customers can continue to enjoy the biggest blockbusters like Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Inside Out before they are available on any other online subscription service. They also get access to a great portfolio of family channels and a growing on demand library of amazing shows and films which we know they love.?

 

Disney EMEA SVP and general manager, media distribution Mark Endema?o added, ?With our shared goal of bringing the highest quality, creative entertainment to audiences in the UK and Ireland in ever more flexible ways, we are extending our relationship with Sky to offer subscribers our movies, series, and our channels at home and on the go. Two years on from its launch, we are particularly proud of the shared success of Sky Movies Disney, and look forward to bringing more of our much-loved stories and characters to audiences in the UK & Ireland.?
