Speaking about the launch Chiara Cipriani, general manager, DisneyLife EMEA, said: “We have opened the gates to the Castle and created this service with families and fans in mind, allowing them to explore Disney all in one place.
“Building on our UK launch at the end of 2015, we are delighted that DisneyLife Ireland is making Disney entertainment available to Irish fans in new ways.” Now users can personalise their account with their favourite Disney character and have access to special extras like Disney and Disney Pixar Shorts, deleted scenes and behind-the-scenes featurettes. Movies, books and kids TV series are available in up to five languages: English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.
Ireland is only the second country – after the UK – in which DisneyLife has launched. Interestingly it has become available soon after Disney announced that it is pulling all it’s content from Netflix, once their contract expires next year.
Disney plans to launch a similar app in the US in 2019, and while the Irish version doesn’t currently carry any Marvel or Star Wars content, the US version will. Speaking recently CEO Bob Iger said: “We’ve now decided we will put the Marvel and Star Wars movies on this app as well.” Hopefully this will pave the way for more adult content on this side of the world. But for now there is more than enough to keep you entertained.
The DisneyLife subscription service is provided by The Walt Disney Company Limited, (Registered in England & Wales Company Number 530051) with its registered office at 3 Queen Caroline Street, London, W6 9PE, United Kingdom.
