How do I get the Disney+ Extra?
If you’re joining O2 or upgrading, you can choose Disney+ as your included Extra when completing your order online, in store or over the phone. If you’re already an O2 customer and you’re not ready to upgrade yet, you can add Disney+ as a paid Extra to your monthly bill – just go to My O2 or call us on 202 from your O2 mobile to get it added. You can get our Disney+ offer in My O2 by going to the ‘Offers’ or ‘Extras’ section.
Can I have Disney+ as an included or paid Extra if I’m already a subscriber?
Yes. As an existing Disney+ subscriber, you’ll still be able to choose a Disney+ promotion from O2 Extras (either three or six months on us if you join O2 or upgrade, or £7.99 a month and get £2 a month airtime discount during your contract term). Disney+ will get in touch shortly by email to let you know how to manage your subscriptions in order to avoid double billing. If you’ve got questions about how adding the Disney+ promo will affect your existing subscription, head to the Disney+ Help Centre.
Are there any special conditions for the Disney+ paid Extra?
You’ll need to commit to your Disney+ Extra for a minimum of six months. Other than that, it’s just the same as a normal Disney+ subscription. And don’t forget, we’ll give you £2 a month off your bill while you’ve got the paid Disney+ Extra.
When will the £2 airtime discount be added to my account?
When you sign up for the Disney+ paid Extra, we’ll send you a link to activate it. As soon as you’ve done that, we’ll add the £2 monthly discount to your airtime plan. If you add it part-way through a billing month, both the £7.99 monthly cost of the Disney+ Extra and the £2 discount will be added on a pro-rata basis.
After the 6-month minimum, will I still get £2 a month off my airtime bill?
Yes, we’ll give you £2 off your bill each month for as long as you keep the paid Disney+ Extra.
If I’m paying for the Disney+ Extra and I upgrade, can I get the included Disney+ Extra?
Yes. When you upgrade, you’ll have 28 days to choose your included Extra. You can keep your paid Disney+ Extra and choose a different included one, or you can choose the Disney+ Extra and we’ll cancel your paid one, along with the £2 monthly discount.
How many streams can I view at the same time?
