Customers will be able to watch great new shows like The Mandalorian and High School Musical; The Musical, The Series; The World According to Jeff Goldblum and more.

Sky said the deal includes the first-pay window for 20th Century titles. This means Sky Cinema customers will continue to enjoy access to blockbusters like Le Mans ’66 and Terminator: Dark Fate.

“We’ve built a strong partnership with Disney over three decades and we’re pleased that our customers in the UK and Ireland can continue to enjoy their world-class content – all in one place on Sky Q”, Jeremy Darroch, Group Chief Executive, Sky, said.

“This is a great start to what is set to be another stellar year for Sky. In 2020 we’ll launch new channels and genres, start building Sky Studios Elstree. We’ve got brilliant new and returning originals coming too.”

Kevin Mayer, Chairman of Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer & International, said: “We are delighted that Sky is selling the Disney+ service on their platform and, along with our other distribution partners, will deliver exceptional reach at launch.”
