The release date of the service will be March 31st in the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, France and Spain, with more territories being announced soon. It is likely that Ireland will also receive the service at the same time as the UK, though this has not been confirmed.

Disney+ will contain content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic, with new series' like The Mandalorian and Loki acting as early draws to the service.

Yeah usually a staggered roll-out is somewhat sensible especially if you're expecting high but somewhat unpredictable demand. But essentially region-locking content for 6 months in this day and age? ThePirateBay is going to have a field day.Quote

So I have to ask,
Who is going to subscribe to this and Netflix and Sky and Amazon prime and the new BBC service and the Warner Bro's version and Apple TV and YouTube premium?
Well everyone if they want to watch everything they have been able to previously. That must be what these guys are thinking. Who wins with segmenting the market like this? The pirate bay.Quote
