Sky is to launch a brand new, dedicated satellite television channel that will become the pay-tv home of Disney Studios movies in the UK and Ireland.
Sky Movies Disney will go live on the Sky platform in late March. It is part of a wide-ranging partnership deal between Sky and Disney, that follows similar collaboration agreements between the part-Rupert Murdoch media giant and Warner Brothers, Universal Pictures and Sony.
Sky Movies Disney marks the first time that The Walt Disney Channel has been involved in a co-branded linear movies channel anywhere in the world.
The channel's launch is also the latest initiative in Sky's strategy of dedicating entire channels to a certain genre or brand, following the debut of Formula One network Sky Sports F1, and Bond films channel Sky Movies 007 last year.
New Disney movies will be available on Sky Movies Disney around six months after they have ended their cinema run, »
