Are you a Sky Q customer? Did you sign up to Disney+ when it launched and now don’t have it linked to Sky Q? Are you confused about this whole thing? Hopefully this post will answer any questions that you may have!
I’ve been looking around the web a lot recently (mainly on Twitter) and have see so many confused customers tweeting about Sky Q and how it’s Disney+ integration is supposed to work.
So let’s go through it…
- Disney+ launched in the UK on 31st March 2020.
- At launch, Sky Q had the app available in an update which was released just in time for Dinsey+ launching to the public.
- At this time, Sky didn’t have the ingratiation set up with Disney+. This meant that to get Disney+, Sky customers would need to sign up as a new customer and buy the subscription through Disney (7 day free trial available).
- Customers of Sky would then be able to use their Disney+ login details to access the app.
Basically, Sky Q launched an update for 24 March 20 which contained the Disney+ app. Disney+ subscribers were able to login with their details to access the their subscription on the Sky Q box.
Ok now let’s continue…
- On 14 April 20, Sky announced the launch of the Disney+ subscription through Sky. This means that customers can now login to their online account with Sky and add Disney+ to their bill.
- Customers who already have Disney+ separately would have to cancel their existing subscription and create another one through their Sky account.
- The subscription through Sky is the exact same price at £5.99. The only difference is that when you have it added to your Sky subscription, Sky Q will recommend shows from Disney+ within your Sky Q guide.
- As the Disney+ subscription is integrated into your Sky account, you’ll combine 2 bills into one. That may be an added benefit for some customers.
Basically, you don’t need to change your subscription if you don’t want to. If you want the extra features that Sky has to offer then you can change over by cancelling your existing subscription and taking a new one through Sky.
I hope this has cleared up any confusion. Will you be changing your subscription over to Sky? Have you already done it? Let us know in the comments.
