Disney to Start Direct-to-Consumer Video Service in the U.K.

  • DisneyLife will feature archived shows, movies and music
  • CEO Iger seeks to tap audiences who don't subscribe to pay TV

Walt Disney Co. is introducing its first standalone streaming service, a video and music product in the U.K. that highlights the media company’s effort to reach viewers outside of the traditional cable TV package.

DisneyLife, which debuts next month, will feature archived Disney Channel shows, Disney and Pixar films, and music, the world’s largest entertainment company said in a statement Wednesday. It will cost 10 pounds ($15.44) a month and be accessible on home computers as well as mobile and tablet devices.
