The Disney Plus TV app is being delivered to all European Android smart TVs by Philips right on time for the start of the streaming service on this continent, TechRadar learned today. This is encouraging news if you own such a TV, as you can see Disney Plus from home without using a device like a Fire Stick or a game console.
It was announced today that Disney Plus will launch in the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria and Switzerland on March 24th, which is slightly earlier than expected. In the UK, it costs £ 59.99 a year, or £ 5.99 a month if you prefer to pay this way.
To date, we have not really heard many details about the introduction to Europe, but now this information is finally reaching us. The all-in-one subscription fee includes 4K movies and TV, if available. This is a big difference to Netflix's tiered subscription packages.
The future of Philips
It's a big day for Philips news. We previously reported on how Philips 2020 OLED TVs will be equipped with AI image processing in order to achieve the highest possible image quality. We also learned how the manufacturer works with Bower and Wilkins to integrate high quality sound systems into their LED TVs.
It is important for our American readers to emphasize that the TP Vision part from Philips unfortunately does not sell this. New devices are being discussed here in North America – but they will bring the OLED televisions from Philips back in 2020 America.
