If all goes to plan with the Government roadmap, we only have one more full month of total lockdown. And what better way to count down the days than by watching TV (as if you hadn’t been doing that for the last year anyway)?
After the launch of their Star content in February, Disney+ has only become more of an attractive streaming site and things are only getting better.
