Want to access Disney Plus for less than the £5.99 a month asking price? Your mobile contract may be able to help with O2 now offering two deals as a benefit for customers on the network.

Disney Plus is set to launch in the UK on March 24, and when it does you'll be able to access the service for free for six months if you're a new or upgrading customer that chooses a particular extra with O2.

It's available to all those taking out new (or upgrading to a new) handset, tablet or SIM only contract. This won't be an option if you're pay as you go.

Those who aren't ready to upgrade (but are crucially already O2 customers) will be able to get a £2 discount on the normal £5.99 asking price for Disney Plus.

You'll be able to get the discount for as long as you continue to be a subscriber to Disney Plus.  The My O2 platform will allow you to subscribe to the streaming service directly, and your bill will immediately get the £2 discount.

The six month free subscription is part of the O2 extras platform that allows you to get a variety of services as an added bonus to your mobile package. O2 currently offers a choice of Amazon Music, Amazon Prime Video, Audible, Cafeyn, MelodyVR, McAfee Mobile Security Plus or Calm.

We are expecting to learn more about this Disney Plus deal ahead of the launch of the new platform. Disney Plus UK's launch line-up was revealed in early March.
