Netflix users in the UK are pretty underprivileged compared to our American cousins (which is why I’d normally recommend you change your DNS settings to gain access to the bigger library) but in terms of Disney movies, not any more: the catalogue of films has now been added to the British Netflix offering.
On top of classic animated movies like Dumbo (so much racism) and Aristocats, there will also be some of the live action favourites from the past few years, like Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl (and On Stranger Tides) and Chronicles of Narnia. You should also look out for some Pixar movies, including Ratatoullie and Wall-E.
Other announcements from Nextflix today will see Marvel and Dreamworks films added to the UK catalogue in the new future. These include: The Help, War Horse and People Like Us. In 2014, exclusive deals have been signed to bring Avenger’s Assemble, John Carter and The Muppets to Netflix UK.
Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said (via TeleGraph) “We aim to make Netflix better all the time and hope members enjoy the rich offering of films we are making available from the Disney studios.”
KitGuru Says: Big fan of Netflix myself. Mostly because I refuse to sit through minutes of adverts whenever I watch a program. I’ll download it (legally of course) or watch it on demand. I’m done with TV.
